@wion Indeed :)
Thanks! I'm glad you think so. Really want to see people considering these things outside pure technology as we're building these new models.
There was conversation floating around a while back about federated blogging -- the 'Medium alternative' -- and it didn't make a lot of sense to me in that light. But it kind of does here. I think you'll have something quite popular.
@m3tti thanks! Glad to hear it :) Would love to get your feedback on it as it moves forward
I'm planning to make it fully open source by the end of the year, but for now if you want to help with Read.as (the reading-focused, AP-enabled platform), I'm going to make that open source to start with. I'd love some help with that once it gets going!
@matt Oh, definitely! Send me a message whenever. I'm not sure what my availability will be, but I'm 100% interested.
@starbreaker Yep! Though that part I still need to figure out -- the ActivityPub support would mean that a Write.as blog is actually an individual account others can follow. But crossposting to your existing Mastodon account would be a separate feature (that I still plan to add)
@matt Awesome. Thanks for the the explanation.
@matt Woo-hoo! Great job. Following quietly, because it's not my domain of knowledge, but reading you write about it helps. :)
