Hi All & Happy New Year

I came across a beautiful protocol for the read-write web called "nostr"

https://github.com/fiatjaf/nostr

It stands for "Notes and Other Stuff Transmitted by Relays"

It uses standards such as JSON, Websockets, Digital Signatures and more, to
create secure social interactions and global identity

It's still in early days but there are already some implementations
springing up

Well known s/w engineer "Uncle" Bob Martin, wrote of it: "Nostr, or the
like, is the endgame solution for social communication. Decentralized and
secure."

I think it will be an interesting project, and I've added an entry to our
wiki ( which btw could do with some love :) )
