That's the way I'll campaign for #Fediverse and advocate it to others.
People, humans, mankind.. that's fedi right there.
Rise of the #Peopleverse ✊
Of course we keep Fediverse as the name. It'll become just as familiar to people as 'web' and 'internet'. And when folks hear it, they'll instantly know something is going on on the peopleverse!
Something most likely worthwhile and of value.
Yes. Intuitively when we were reading up on the history of decentralised social media we could see that something very seedy had happened with respect to #theInternet especially from 2013-2015, and #Diaspora was in the crosshairs it seems.
Then again we may be wrong to assume the attack ended in 2015. In Australia, 2015 was the year our govt said internet connections would be recorded (?), so a #chillingEffect, attack only just started here at that time.
Nope, there's no dotcon association. Metaverse is entirely irrelevant to us. You can forget about it.
#Peopleverse a portmanteau of "people" and "universe" to denote the online social space spun up by the #Fediverse and its open standards, where people and their human interactions are truly central. The peopleverse is widely understood to be the first truly social fabric, in contrast to traditional social media that came before, that treated people more as cattle 😜
Yes, unfortunately 'pplverse' does feel corporatised. Or like a recruitment agency.
We've always felt Fediverse is a #beautiful word/phrase, beating the commonly referred to 'Cellar door'.
