Short writeup about #activitypub's shortcomings and 'worse is better' by @kaniini: https://blog.dereferenced.org/activitypub-the-worse-is-better-approach-to-federated-social-networking
@kaniini your last comment at the end reminded me of the #Signal team's argument for not including federation in the Signal protocol : "I no longer believe that it is possible to build a competitive federated messenger at all...once you federate your protocol, it becomes very difficult to make changes. And right now, at the application level, things that stand still don’t fare very well in a world where the ecosystem is moving."
A place for your photos and banter. Photog first is our motto
