Twitter / Bluesky 

@bob @nicol

I don't know either. I mean the things these specifications try to solve I'm behind. But I'd rather wait until something rolls out of all these efforts that looks like it sound, broadly accepted, and finds widespread adoption.

Maybe @rhiaro could shine more light on the direction all this is going?

@humanetech @nicol first I heard about it, got any links?

The announcement came together with the news that The Elon wants money for "state actors" or organisations.

From 1 article
“Bluesky joined a field already occupied by several decentralized networking protocols, including ActivityPub, which powers the Mastodon platform. But its researchers have stressed that they’re trying to learn from and build on these efforts, not simply replicate them. ADX is a long-awaited step forward — and a chance to see if that promise holds up.”

@sl007 @rhiaro @humanetech @nicol “we can sign content by the user's key” – I don’t like the sound of that at all. So they’re going to hold the private keys. (Of course.) I mean, this is likely going to be the worst possible right-libertarian and corporate implementation of such a thing given who’s behind it. Not sure why we even still give billionaires the benefit of the doubt. No billionaire or trillion-dollar corporation is your friend.

@aral @sl007 @rhiaro @humanetech @nicol It's worth looking at who the initial team is. They made a pretty straight forward announcement that they are now 100% independent of twitter as well and set up a PBC to show it.

If they are “independent”, they would probably say at least where the millions come from.
On the other hand I had shared the criticisms against Musk of the team like the rabble thread on socialhub or Graeber pieces from twitter or even Golda Velez github.com/blueskyCommunity/ao

But I can't trust without transparency.
I only believe, what I see.

If they are “independent”, fine.
We are expecting their questions on socialhub and we are expecting them at the meeting next Tuesday.
Usually we speak about proposals. Together.
