The last few weeks have had me recording and sharing a lot more video clips, which is a phenomenon in itself.
But on fedi, I'm more aware of how many more bytes video is than text, and someone has to pay for those hard drives 'cuz they're not made out of venture capital pixie dust. It gives me pause.
but, hmm, since a lot of fedi-culture is ephemeral, which is also true of snapchat and its descendants, a community server could moderate its storage costs by having videos self-destruct.
