๐Ÿ‘‹ Hey yโ€™all yarners ๐Ÿค— โ€“ @darch@neotxt.dk and I have been discussing in our Weekly Yarn.social call (still ongoingโ€ฆ come join us! ๐Ÿ™) about the experimental Yarn.social <-> Activity Pub integration/bridge Iโ€™ve been working onโ€ฆ And mostly whether itโ€™s even a good idea at al, and if we should continue or not?

There are still some outstanding issues that would need to be improved if we continued this regardless

Some thoughts being discussed:

  • Yarn.social pods are more of a โ€œfamilyโ€, where you invite people into your โ€œhomeโ€ or โ€œcommunityโ€
  • Opening up to the โ€œFediviseโ€ is potentially โ€œuncontrolledโ€
  • Even at a small scale (a tiny dev pod) we see activities from servers never interacted with before
  • The possibility of abuse (because basically anything can POST things to your Pod now)
  • Pull vs. Push model polarising models/views which whilst in theory can be made to work, should they?

Go! ๐Ÿ‘

Iโ€™m worried that Yarn will become just another ActivityPub frontend. This integration threatens to split the community in two. Users of Twtxt clients without ActivityPub support wonโ€™t want to follow Yarn users because theyโ€™ll be engaged in conversations that are inaccessible to standard Twtxt clients. It will only force the split deeper if ActivityPub is an option to be toggled by users or pod operators.
