@impiaaa "at least this one is pretty"
@impiaaa "also we're making up our own new protocol" i see no issues with that, especially when the people doing that have no experience building that kind of thing afaik
From the sound of it, they just mean something like LitePub, a version of ActivityPub with some added semantics. Not sure what the progress is on that protocol, though.
The blog post mentions that some of our mod tools "waste time", I'd be curious to hear the specifics and what alternatives they come up with...
ActivityPub is basically just email with more structured data and less caked-on layers of legacy support.
I'm interpreting this to mean one of two things: either they're designing something with blockchain because they heard that word once and are excited about all the nonsense orbiting around it, or they've got no ideas at all and the project is going to be cancelled when they realize that.
