Subject: Re: Fediverse for May topic
So the idea is to be able to join your own or your buddy's social media
site, and then it syncs to others. all the content and activity is still on
that main server, but people from other servers can still subscribe to you
from wherever they are logged in. and then this subscription is handed back
and forth when called/requested between the different services.

So your feed can pull content from just one server or 50 depending on your
subscriptions. but you still only have to deal with one social location. a
lot like a really pretty and interactive RSS feed, so you can use this for
news info, social updates whatever you want.
