There's Mastodon, the software. There's Mastodon, the project that develops that software. Then there's Mastodon, the misnomer for the network (in reality, "fediverse")
I suppose there's also Mastodon meaning mastodon.social for those who think those are interchangeable, which happens to be run by the same person responsible for Mastodon the project (me)
@Gargron I figured the band was gonna be one of these
@Gargron I think its silly to use them as interchangeable. But the reputation of the two will and do overlap, and rightfully so.
@Gargron I'm surprised people think Mastodon is the whole thing
@Gargron Actually, Mastodon is the scientist, the name of the communications network is Mastodon's Monster
