The thing is, all of us have used federated networks all our lives.

Telephones are federated, email is federated, the postal service is federated, telegrams and telegraphs (when they existed) were federated. People understood them and still do, as long as they've been exposed to such things.

Everyone knows you can phone anyone even if they're on a different phone company.

I think this also comes up when trying to explain Mastodon or the fediverse to a wider audience. They just have no frame of reference for this kind of stuff. "Where's the app in the App Store?" "Why do I have to choose an instance?" "What the heck's an instance?"

It's just expected that Mastodon is a startup in California somewhere, and it's got millions of dollars of VC money and bus ads saying "get it on the App Store, get it on Google Play." How could things possibly be anyway else?

There are two kinds of fic writers:

1. Wow, I really loved this [book/show/whatever], I wish there was more of it. Guess I'll have to write it myself.

2. Canon is fucked up and I'm angry enough to do something about it.

A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"Thank you, Earthlings," it said, "we can now reveal that when you played a computer game, it actually controlled our robots."
"Which game?"
"Mine sweeper."
