A Name and a Purpose

If, according to the joke by Douglas Adams that the answer to life, the universe, and everything is 42, then in the realm of decentralization the answer is 42divide.

Yes, the answer is divided among the infinite possible nodes, communities, and people in web publishing that interact and share with each other through a set of interoperability standards. Whether large or small, well-known or obscure, they are all sovereign members of a federated universe.

The blog at 42divide.com is an exploration of the life in that federated universe and everything that it entails. It is an outside-in tour for the new and the curious. It is also an experience of and for the fediverse itself.
