"It feels like ActivityPub as a standard might fit better to our use case than to Mastodon, so I'm really excited about what we might be able to do with that."
Where are you, #WordPress ?
By the way Mastodon IS NOT an ActivityPub full implementation, it's more correct to say Mastodon implements ActivityPub Server-to-Server protocol for the federation of its servers.
The "implementation of ActivityPub" should be more something like this:
that would be much more powerful in my opinion...
(to be precise the syntax with double @ is not part of ActivityPub, it's a convention in the UI/UX that Mastodon introduced)
No the [email protected] is just the syntax, they mean the "you interact with USER-at-DOMAIN" where DOMAIN represents an organization like a newspaper.
Instead on Mastodon the DOMAIN part represent an instance, that doesn't always match with an organization or some other entity.
I hope it's more clear now what they mean...
