It’s happening.

    Unless that’s an element of some bigger plan I’ve missed?

    Actually, yes! In a Verge interview, Mitchell Baker said, “The first step is to actually be an active participant in that world and do some learning.” Link. I’m hopeful that this is the first step toward making ActivityPub a part of the browser, which would go a long way toward elevating it to a staple of the modern web. (As a side note, I’d love it if they extended that sort of idea to RSS as well)

      Knew about it but first time I bothered to read it and there is a bit more than just that, but hard to tell if there’s any strong commitment. Have to wait and see I guess. Thanks for that link.

        Yeah, I hope so too. I mean, it’s hard to make any commitments without knowing what the needs would be; the need can be anything on a spectrum from “just money” to “more maintainers,” to “new products” or “bigger ecosystem,” all the way up to “help with governance” or “a forked codebase.” It could also be anything in between or any combination. Committing your whole organization to it before you know what the commitment is feels unwise, so I get it. But I agree, I want them to say more and do more soon.
