Re: aaron + social web?

When talking adding a Matrix chat channel I might point to effort on SocialHub to bring more cohesion between otherwise independent initiatives, to avoid overlap and reinventing wheels:

There is currently a Fediverse Developers channel, where many people that are active both at the SocialHub and the SWICG mailing list are already present:

SocialHub community forum has an official liaison to the SWICG.. this matrix chat channel might be similarly associated. The initiative it was launched for can be found on

Note: In other SWICG mail thread there's discussion about impact of the Meta entry to the Fediverse. Any cohesion we might forge in our grassroots movement would make our position stronger in the face of such big corporate entries.
