I like the term "Fediverse", because it's a portmanteau of "federation", "universe" and "diverse", and I think that describes it quite accurately ☺️
In their original meaning, yes, kinda. The meaning of universe has become a bit more specific since then, tho. At least a "diverse universe" doesn't sound conflicting to me 😄
@fribbledom I'm pretty sure all the Black and brown folks who've been driven off by persistent racism and anti-blackness would strongly disagree with the "diverse" part, heh.
@fribbledom I like the term "Ad-verse" for the advertising hindered part of the internet, because the Fediverse is welcoming and the Ad-verse is adverse, which means in a contrary direction, hostile, opposed to, etc.
Well, it is part of the portmanteau, but I'm not sure if there's anything canon or official in that context. I think I just made that up myself 😄
@fribbledom Sounds like, if Fediverse weren't already in use, it would be a good name for a website domain. Spiders love names like that.
