I wrote an article for the Mozilla Hacks blog that's a brief technical introduction to ActivityPub. I also provide an intro to my simple Node.js server.

@darius thanks for writing an ActivityPub article that doesn't focus on Mastodon alone. The power of AP is that it's an open standard, but most people using just Mastodon as an example dilutes that

@0x1C3B00DA I'm really excited for Pixelfed to get full federation so I can put it side by side with the various Twitter clones and say "look, these run on the same standard". (PeerTube is a little conceptually different since it's federation of metadata plus peer to peer content serving. I think that's extremely important but it complicates the AP story)

@darius nice, u know why the working group close? I feel, there is so much more to do.

@Transflux I don't know, perhaps because the point was to publish the spec. There is a community group in its place.

@darius oh I didn't find that, just a silent Google group... quite ironic actually

@darius hey, what are you doing with the dat protocol. I would like to include it in an upcoming project.

@Transflux no this is a public conversation since our statuses are set to public

@darius ups... :) anyway I thought it has great potential but the development seemed to slow down, so its great to see that you are taking it on

@darius totally dig ur stuff since years btw. I'm totally into weird chat androids too

@darius oho. ok i understand. so its probably not that straight forward. But it would be great if it would improve, ... not that I used it much. actually trying toshare something with it for the 1. time
