The Fediverse is already dead | Leonora Tindall

A wonderfully well-written look at the state of the "Fediverse", and whether or not that term has any value left in it. There's a lot of interesting history and some slightly spicy takes in here, but for me the most useful part is the framing of the distributed social graph that the Fediverse creates as a "Social Archipelago". That's just a nice term that helps visualise the reality of it all a bit better:

“The Fediverse” needs to end, and I don’t think anything should replace it. Speak instead about communities, and prioritize the strength of those communities. Speak about the way those communities interact, and don’t; the way they form strands and islands and gulfs. I’ve taken to calling this the Social Archipelago.
