I suspect the fediverse remember old IT guys the BBSs. So we feel like at home (and younger) running a pod.
Besides, I am not retired, but when I was a boy, in the late 80s, I was playing with BBS, building my own 300 BAUD modem, etc. So to see this BBS network attracted me, and I speculate this may be the same for many.
