So, SourceHut is not hosted in anyone's cloud. I own all of the hardware outright and colocate most of it in a local datacenter.

I just built a new server for git.sr.ht, and boy is she a beat. It cost me about $5.5K as a one-time upfront cost, and now I just pay for power, bandwidth, and space, which runs about $650/mo for *all* of my servers (10+).

Ran back of the napkin numbers with AWS's price estimator for a server of equivalent specs, and without even considering bandwidth usage it'd cost me almost TEN GRAND PER MONTH to host JUST that server alone on AWS.

AWS is how techbro startups pile up and BURN their investor money.

Me, to my 10-yr-old: “Sure, you can use your new art set, it it gets you away from the iPad.”

10-yr-old, to herself: “Sweet. He must be ok with me painting a rainbow-farting moose on my bedroom wall and door.”

We need to be alert to this - a classic authoritarian move: 1) float a large, outrageous political reform
2) get everyone panicking
3) pull back from it
4) carry out a comparatively small reform that still salami slices our democracy (in this case: curbing judicial review) twitter.com/tnewtondunn/status
