@strypey Federated #Dreamwidth would be SO AWESOME and do much to extend the platform's reach. Wohali in the linked discussion makes a valid point, though, that Dreamwidth circles are much finer-grained than Mastodon's "folower only" security level. Theoretically, though, DW could continue to have its (awesome) access controls on its own site while being compatible with federation on its outward face? If that makes sense?
@strypey @UserCoffee The devs certainly seem supportive of other people running the DW code, http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/Dreamwidth_Installation and list interoperability among their guiding principles. https://www.dreamwidth.org/legal/principles In the end it's a question of priority and developer time, but If someone started, say, running a DW instance and successfully implemented ActivityPub that may get the devs' attention.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
