I think for a while there have been a big feeling that OSS/federated/etc services like these are for dingus nerds (hey look, that's us!) - but maybe the recent discontent in SHT twitter is bringing up the ideas that maybe centralized services, let alone Twitter, aren't good.
Of course, it's the problem of both getting here and dealing with its flaws. boofer says (and I agree) that once a critical mass comes, the rest will follow.

@samis @calvin @bhtooefr The attitude seems to be "I can write a web app too, and make it like twitter but not be twitter" which gravislizard sort of addressed as being against the point of twitter, something mastodon fixes by being interconnected. (I mean, we're having this 4-person threadconvo across three servers, like email but faster.)
