they have been heard of, yes... start with the existing and easy stuff and then

sure it is... it offers another channel for communications... perhaps this

FidoNet's PURPOSE:

Very simple; it is a hobby, a non-commercial network of computer hobbiests
("hackers", in the older, original meaning) who want to play with, and find
uses for, packet switch networking. It is not a commercial venture in any way;

similar to ham radio, in that other than a few "stiff" rules, each sysop runs
their system in any way they please, for any reason they want.
