ActivityPub is not the only Fediverse protocol in town. Zot also allows decentralized social media.—and it has a game-changing feature: nomadic identity. 🏈

This is my experience using it 🧵 blog.peerverse.space/hubzilla-

1. Nomadic identity is my holy grail of decentralized social media. In a previous life, I worked on one attempt. Many have tried and failed.

So the fact Zot is not a proof of concept, and can actually be used by anyone is huge.

2. If you want to know why I'm excited about Zot's implementation of nomadic identity, take a look at this screen shot.

Notice anything missing? A password field! A channel address is all that's needed for authentication.

3. What makes Zot particularly nomadic is the ability to clone your channel. Upload a file or enter in credentials from another channel, and now you have true redundancy across multiple sites.

4. Mastodon's big weakness is that it has a class system: admins and users. Admins own user personas, toots, personal data. This creates a hierarchy.

Nomadic identity, as implemented in Zot, fixes this problem.

La gran debilidad de Mastodon es que tiene un sistema de clases: administradores y usuarios. Los administradores poseen personas de usuario, toots, datos personales. Esto crea una jerarquía.

La identidad nómada, tal como se implementa en Zot, soluciona este problema.
