I wrote an answer to Dennis post https://schub.io/blog/2018/02/01/activitypub-one-protocol-to-rule-them-all.html about #ActivityPub

Hmm, I had some small comments on it, I'll read it again tomorrow on a bigger screen 😁

Well done, nice text!

Great post. Will keep it because there is a lot info about some technical stuff I was about to ask anyway ;) Thanks a lot.

I think you've got it backwards, @Deus Figendi. The point of @Michael Vogel was to explain that what was already done with the Diaspora protocol can also be done with ActivityPub.

My blog post is an answer to Dennis blog post. Every paragraph answers an aspect of his post. This post is not about what the Diaspora protocol is able to do. It is about what AP is able to do - and in fact (with the exception of private messaging) AP would be able to cover most parts of the requirements.

I don't know if there ever will be AP in Diaspora and I'm no advocate in this direction. I only wanted to state my personal view about the protocol. It has got problems, but there are workarounds. I also prefer AP before DFRN (our own protocol). When the last problems had been solved, the transition from DFRN to AP will begin. Then the whole communication will be done over AP.

@Michael Vogel du könntest das auch nochmal neu Posten mit #diaspora Tag. dann lesen das.noch mehr Leute.

@heluecht For sure, that would be really helpful. The SocialCG IRC channel is usually filled with people who want to talk about that sort of thing, but I don't IRC is a great format for those discussions - it would be better to have a forum where everything is indexed and searchable

Something more "offlineable" would be better, indead.

Well, the #Fediverse is fractured into different parts, #Mastodon users (programmers) could then not communicated with #Diaspora users. #Github got kind of evil because of #Microsoft ...

instead of trying to find ways to do it inside the frederation/fediverse

I knew the microsoft issue would come up ..
that's just kinda "different" battleground, although actually proves my centralized dependency point when it comes to: "let's discuss inside our realm!"

For me it’s kinda strange that any coder of the federation-fediverse hasn’t an account with any of the competetive but befriended projects.
I think this is a good point. I have accounts on many systems specifically so I can see it from the user's perspective on each not just my own that I happen to operate in mostly throughout the day. It also helps give me ideas of what works and what doesn't in how the various systems do things. It costs nothing but a little time to set up an account and dabble with it from time to time.
