With Twitter announcing they will create an open social network, are you concerned?

I mean who even remembers pheed, right? But I think there was an opportunity to create an open protocol like email for social media, and maybe mastodon is it, or maybe Twitter will create it, but I am not so sure.

Speaking of "like email", I think that's something that needs to be revisited as well. More than half my emails are notifications anyway.

Wow, pheed was sold for $40m according to wikipedia. Not bad I guess,. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pheed But they actually got celebs to sign up for it back in the days. Boost if you remember!

Wow, I didn't know that this story continues to today. Pheed was apparently sold to an Isreali startup called mobile who has just last year been sued by its investors timesofisrael.com/beitar-jerus Complete with pictures of Leonardo Di Caprio!

I honestly cannot remember what tent.io was, but their GitHub org still exists. Any idea, @moellus?
