There are quite a few decentralized social networks on the scene these
days.  Yet ineroperability between different nets still seems to be a
challenge.

Many or most use a specific protocol to interop with similar nodes, but
unless you adopt that particular structure, and identification system, it
can be tricky to get projects working together, which leads to
fragmentation.

I think the way forward is for more and more projects to realize, what can
be done with exsisting HTTP and build to that paradigm, using web standards.

As such the new "Tent" Project seems not too bad, using HTTP GET, POST, PUT
& PATCH with JSON

Will be interesting to see if this one gains traction or if it can interop
with some of the social nets we have working on the RWW.
