EN: At FLISOL - Loja I had the chance to talk about one of the things that excite me when I teach. The surprised faces of students wondering how a text file can become slides, a PDF or an html, and even a word docx.

#Twitter is launching #Bluesky, a.k.a. Authenticated Data Experiment.

It'll lead to a more decentralized social network, a more open-source platform, federation across instances, shared protocols, and users in charge of their own "Personal Data Repositories" that they can easily share and move around.

In other words, Twitter is reinventing #ActivityPub, and ignoring years of progress already made on the protocols and infrastructures of the #Fediverse.

I'm really wondering what's the point. If you're a company like Twitter, that has already been struggling to turn profitable for the past decade, what's the point of pouring even more resources into rebuilding ActivityPub from scratch instead of reusing what's already available?
