Only got to catch the end of Evan Prodromou's #APConf2020 Q&A session, but I really appreciated the point he made about how we might grow the fediverse by only having certain interactions here (instead of cross-posting to birdsite, for example).
Not to mention all the things that #ActivityPub enables that you simply can't do on other social silos.
@matt I'm sad I missed his q&a, I liked his talk a lot
@darius @matt Good news: Most Q&As have been recorded, so maybe you're lucky and someone has asked a similar question already.
@darius @matt they mentioned you Darius
