Twitter's Blue Sky project to turn the service into an unowned protocol instead of a centralized website has actually released some code.
V0.0 code, barely started. But there's a document describing it too.
Continues to sound more promising than I originally thought it would.
"The base layer ... creates a common space for speech where everyone is free to participate ... Indexer services then enable reach by aggregating content from the network .... Moderation occurs in multiple layers through the system ... There's no one company that can decide what gets published; instead there is a marketplace of companies deciding what to carry to their audiences."
A gateway into the global open conversation in the fediverse for Boing folks and anyone they know.
