@plexus So what ever happened with Matrix? Love that this seems to be gaining momentum, but I'm concerned that the technical underpinnings are...lacking? (i.e. Is there an official spec for federation if I want to build my own server?) Matrix seemed to have a much sounder footing there, and be useful for a wider range of applications...
I think it's crucial for #mastodon that the platform/protocol needs a way to smoothly change instances while keeping your followers, to let people migrate out into smaller/more specific instances without friction. That would do a lot to help keep the federation as a whole healthy.
