@benwerd I like what @pfefferle did with OStatus and Activity Pub for Wordpress...I guess @Brokenarrow8 is a thing now wish I started with that account

@benwerd @pfefferle @Brokenarrow8 Though while I do understand the privacy concerns I do wish webmentions worked in Mastodon so all this could happen from my own Domain.

@benwerd Well Plume and write.as are both supporting it. It is interesting to think that I could use Mastodon to follow your Known blog, someone's Pixelfed images, and a person on write.as. It feels like the web of the future we were promised.

@sikkdays Yeah. I like the idea of being able to use multiple platforms in this way. I do have some worries about abuse - but also some thoughts about how to deal with it once the fediverse expands.

@benwerd @sikkdays it's worth to reach out to people on here who know and understand abuse. I'd even suggest to contract them for an analysis of abuse vectors that Known should take into account.

@frankmeeuwsen I don’t know if the open source community will build it, and I don’t know if I have the bandwidth to do it. So: human laziness, mostly ;)

@benwerd I wouldn't call it laziness. Maybe more something in terms of "lower on the backlog of priorities" 😂😂
If I had the chops to build it, I'd help you out. Too bad I'm mostly a copy-paste Stack Overflow kinda programmer.

@frankmeeuwsen Isn’t that all programmers? ;)

I’m forcing myself to have some time off this month, and coding isn’t part of the plan. But I do think this is worth doing, and I love the idea of everyone just being able to run their own profile from any kind of web host if they want.

@benwerd I was looking at building a compatible client and it looks daunting

@benwerd It'd be super cool if Known could become a part of the fediverse.

@benwerd it might be less work to add Webmention support to Mastodon
