Tired: Application with Web-based user and programming interfacesWired: Application with email-based user and programming interfaces
@alexbuzzbee oh no, anything but email, please
@alexbuzzbee inspired: ActivityPub based interfaces
@bugaevc ActivityPub is a subset of Web-based
@alexbuzzbee kinda, but also not really.
It uses HTTP, and post contents are HTML, so yes, web technologies. But it's not something you would read/use with your regular web browser —
you need specialized software, like the one I'm using to write this toot, and the one my instance will use to send it to you once I got that blue button
@bugaevc Yes but the ActivityPub protocol is a Web standard designed to use Web technologies, so I consider it part of the Web more than its own thing.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
