A comparison of ActivityPub message creation format to e-mail and Matrix.
Makes me think ActivityPub is suitable for real-time communication...
Final call for suggestions on what the goals of the ActivitySub project should be!
I've laid out the goals I want the project to achieve, please chime in if you think anything is missing.
I've created a project here to start this journey: https://github.com/indirection-ctrl-a-ctrl-x/ActivitySub
It should not be too difficult to achieve. The biggest hurdle is deciding on tech which is efficient, cross-platform and will avoid bitrot.
Last night I continued to study the ActivityPub specification, and there's a few things left to figure out I think.
* How would you resolve the issue of making an existing instance use a domain you own?
* How can we create a federated instance list service?
* How can we implement a cross-instance, configurable user trust system? (So instances can decide on how they trust users)
@Gargron is there a technical reason why other instances can't be searched while not signed up there? DDOS protection, user protection, or just an oversight?
I'm taking @sir 's advice and switching from Protonmail to Migadu.
I was a paying customer of Protonmail but they've dropped the ball in many places. SMTP/IMAP support was the first (and the bridge was only for paying customers until recently!), no scheduled messages the second, and realizing the broken security model (even before Drew's post) the third, and I'm sure others could list other reasons.
While I don't think Protonmail is spying on emails, their system is broken.
@Gargron how do you handle storing media content uploaded to Mastodon? It must be crazy expensive?

This is a brand new server run by the main developers of the project as a spin-off of mastodon.social It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
