I see the #fediverse like FidoNet. Even though everyone can be reached across the network, you still have individual accounts on your favorite BBSes.


@jcorgan @alrs not sure if I should take that as a compliment, lol 😉
Yes, I remember. Back then you felt like being a part of something bigger. Today using the Internet is a so polished off thing that I don't feel a thing. Mastodon, bitcoin and other projects like helps change that and bring back "the good old days" :)

@surfrndk @alrs I came to Silicon Valley in '93, worked at companies that helped build out the Internet infrastructure. Those were heady days, for sure. It's a good thing Silicon Valley got its name back then; today it would have been called "JavaScript Alley" 😂
