I'm curious, does anyone other than Mike MacGirvin have any projects, live or coming-soon, that use the Zot/Zot6 protocol(s)?
Afaik, it's only Hubzilla and other projects of his that even try to use that protocol.
If that's right, is it due to technical reasons, or does Mike have a PR problem?
anyway yeah http://libertree.org and they literally called their nodes/instances "trees"
there was a toot i saw idk-how-long-ago that was thinking about (making? designing?) a social network that used a tree metaphor
and i didn't reply at the time bc i'd forgotten the name of a very similar network that already existed back in like 2010
anyway i just remembered the name is Libertree but i have absolutely no idea how to find that old conversation and let that person know (or even which person it was)
I'm really excited about all the activity in the federated, self-hosted space. However, I feel like there's still a missing piece around identity. I don't want to have to create a new user every time I want to use someone elses shiny new federated event sharing application or what have you.
There don't seem to be any great self hosted OpenID providers out there and OpenID only solves the authentication part anyway. Maybe I've missed some obvious solutions?

I'm not a part of Forkoff, I never have been, but this is an example of how everything in the Fediverse ends in me getting harassed.
