In-reply-to » @prologic Re: Chat system, What if the base specification included a system for per-user arbitrary JSON storage on the server? Kind of like XEP-0049, but expanded upon. Two kinds of objects: public and private. Public objects can be queried by anyone, private objects cannot and must be encrypted with the user's private key. Public keys could be stored there, as well as anything else defined by extensions. Roster, user block list, avatar, etc.

Actually it’s good : RFC for Encrypted Feeds

So… Here’s a thought…

If [Matrix] is built on a decentralised/distributed event syncing and a basic model of “Room”

And:

IRC is a centralised text based protocols with client to server and server to server networking and a basic model of “Channels” and “Users”

Then:

Yarn.social can build a “Chat” system based on the already existing and established decentralised/distributed syncing of feeds with a model of well umm feeds

🤔 🤣
