Fuck Facebook and NFT.
WE are the real Metaverse. WE are the actual Web3.0. WE are open, decentralized, empowering, not THEM.

The world hasn't seen a network quite like Fediverse. Such networks need a name and a definition, and they STOLE it from us. They played you like a goddamn fiddle.

But it has seen very similar ones, eg. SMTP and XMPP.

You can call it Web 3.0 if youbwant but we're merely getting back to where we were in the 90s.

Since most of the web has been regressing towards mainframe age during the last decade, you could call this a success. But we have ways to go.

@wolf480pl Neither SMTP nor XMPP are web protocols. Federated networks aren't new, but the federated social web is.

@strypey there have been simple versions of distributed and federated social networks on the web. Things like FOAF and webrings may not have had all the features of modern federation, but they were still a form of agreement-based federated social network. One could even argue RSS/Atom syndication produced a degree of web federation. @wolf480pl @drq @alcinnz
