@kurisu i know? i'm not saying that. i'm saying that *the entire implementation of mastodon* is a) isomorphic to what the person on HN was talking about (in that it is a complete social network in an of itself) and b) was done entirely by gargron in less then a year
of course he didn't invent the idea of ostatus. he also didn't invent rails, or ruby, or computers, or the internet. We all build on the shoulders of the work that's come before us.

This is just one part of the network, run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
