The point is not to _remove the need for trust_ but to _develop mechanisms for demonstrating trust_.
Trust-less systems are not safe systems; trust-full systems are. So much of engineering effort is about navigating low/no trust systems; as opposed to developing systems that _generate_ trust.
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
