@ted The Place and Event parts of ActivityPub would work, but I'm not aware of any other implementation using them for anything, are you?

@mhall119 @ted just noticed this and it looks interesting...

Not aware of any widely used AP implementations that use locations, events, etc. but I think Nextcloud@mastodon.xyz is heading in that direction.

Also I think objects can be (or contain) multiple types so an event could also be a note which Mastodon could munch on making for interesting ideas to spread announcements? My AP knowledge is limited though.

@cwebber is a busy person but a good person to bounce ideas off...

@mhall119 @cwebber @msh @ted I'd like to participate as well but Telegram is a bit of a non-starter (requires an app to get started). Is there a log of conversations somewhere that can be followed (or an IRC bridge?).

If not no worries. I'll follow along via github.

Thanks!

@craigmaloney @cwebber @msh @ted You can use the Telegram web app to join in. I haven't added any bots or anything to it yet, and don't have an IRC channel

@msh @mhall119 @cwebber @ted Unfortunately I couldn't find a way to sign up without the app. :( Perhaps I'm not looking in the fight spot though?

@mhall119 @msh @cwebber @ted Once you enter a phone number it wants you to use an app to create an account.

I downloaded the desktop app and it then wanted me to upload a photo.

Sorry, but nope.

@craigmaloney @msh @cwebber @ted I assume that's just for your profile picture, why not use the same one you have on here?

@mhall119 @msh @cwebber @ted That's quite alright. I already moved out of my comfort zone in running the app to log in. Asking for a photo confirmed that Telegram wasn't going to be a pleasant experience for me.

@craigmaloney @msh @cwebber @ted I've been considering Gitter as an alternative to Telegram, but you'd still have to log in to something for that

@mhall119 @msh @cwebber @ted I actually use Gitter for Tootstream (was selected by the project author) so I'm already there.

The issue I had was having to run an app in order to create an account that got me out of my comfort zone. That's all. :)
