Why the Fediverse is significant, beside privacy
Because big corporations are not forever.
Say about them what you will, but there IS a value in social media, they do satisfy the need, they do scratch that ancient itch of human beings to hear each other and be heard. They do it quite perversely, as a side-effect to filling their shareholders' pockets, but still, as a matter of fact.

Remember folks, these people walk amongst us, they express opinionsand can vote. Scary shit. #arch

So a work colleague sent out an invite over Google Calendar to a videoconference hosted on our company Jitsi server yesterday, and because Google is "smart" they decided to add prominent links to *its own service* to the invite...as in more prominent than the actual link to our Jitsi server that we were using. It did so without asking permission or prior warning.
After the customer sat in an empty Google meeting for 10 minutes we phoned directly to direct him to the proper meeting...
