ActivityPub now a W3C recommended standard. Important to decentralize control over social network interaction. Right path to end walled-gardens e.g. Facebook & Twitter. Like e-mail & WWW vs. olde AOL or non-standard, closed systems. https://www.fsf.org/blogs/community/victory-for-libre-networks-activitypub-is-now-a-w3c-recommended-standard
“When the scoop is open, a jaywalker simply can’t get run over, and sometimes that’s more than he deserves.”
A 1930s contraption for catching pedestrians instead of running them over, apparently a topic of innovation in the 1920s and 30s.
I like the mission of this new W3C Publishing Working Group aiming to make Web publishing able with respect to "...accessibility, usability, portability, distribution, archiving, offline access, and cross-referencing."
