But I'm not sure how that would play out, or if it's even possible.
The fediverse is a federation of decentralised protocols, whereas SSB is a distributed protocol.
These are two different technologies.
hah. great! finally you came!@staltz
I rememberd a short discussion we had 1-2 years ago via twitter with me asking you to join us. That time you had a different opinion.
I'm glad you changed it, and hope for you for fruitfull conversations with other devs. and alike.
@paulfree14 Hi! I still have the same opinion on Mastodon: it's functional and great UX, but fundamentally not decentralized enough to give a persistent solution to the problem it addresses (i.e. distribution of power). I believe Mastodon isn't that much different to other software in the Fediverse, but Mastodon had a significant success simply because of good UX. I came here because there's a good audience here, it's like a second Twitter. :)
I agree with your arguments.
I mainly wanted to have you joining because:
- of the audience and the discourse about p2p service it can foster
- many devs. around interested in federated/decentralized plattform development
- a federated alternative to currently existing social network
@paulfree14 Thanks for the warm welcoming :)
