"Here get in contact with me over the fediverse"
"Is this a webfinger id"
"No it's my email address, email is the original federated social network amirite"
@cwebber I love the idea that your email address, webfinger acct, and XMPP handle could all be the same string "email@example.com", even though the technology should also allow you to use different identifiers for each and connect them conveniently as you see fit.
@cwebber and one that also suffered from lack of nomadic identity imho.
@cwebber it does make me realise that we could repurpose email's support for + and - in the local-part for category filtering (if that's not already part of federation specs).
Imagine if you could opt-in or opt-out of just certain posts from people?
@ username@instance would subscribe to all my content
@ username+personal+security@instance would only subscribe to those filed under personal or security
@ username-shitposts@instance would subscribe to all, except filed as shitposts
