Watching a great documentary by Joe Hunting & interview by @shibacomputer about VR-Chat.
"It's Weird, Okay!? I Get It's Weird!" Finding the Self in the Para-Real with VR Documentarian Joe Hunting
@exstral @shibacomputer I've had for a while on vvvvvvaria.org one or two years ago and I think it is very doable to host. Disk and storage are obviously the big issues you run in to. Also the federation model I found confusing and it is easy to have your instance fill with random crap or worse. At the time for example you couldn't mirror channels but would rather mirror entire servers 🙃 Not sure how that works nowadays!
@rra @exstral we handle disk storage with very conservative max disk spaces for user accounts. We pre-approve all other federation to avoid getting caught up in garbage instances. Most importantly, we're using more of the livestream tech and deliberately archiving, rather than treating our instance as a YouTube equivalent.
Welcome to post.lurk.org, an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
