@Downes @benwerd The computer science program at my school is going to help on the project.

I am sure there will be plenty of folks in course willing to lend a hand.

I put in a 1.4 million dollar grant with Marcus Povey that will use webmentions heavily. If we get it we will be contributing back heavily to Known core, but using open standards and open source to build building blocks anyone will be able to use and play. Fingers crossed
