It's been suggested in the past, and I dismissed the idea because there are already good enough #wiki systems out there, but re-thinking it a federated wiki using #ActivityPub might bring a new aspect in that it would be federating pages between you and your peer group. That means unlike Wikipedia or another monolithic wiki there would be no single source of truth, and pages could travel the social graph and morph according to local conditions.

So a federated ActivityPub wiki wouldn't be a competitor to Wikipedia, but would be more about accumulating information directly relevant to your affinity group.


@bob is an experiment in distributed wikis, pulling together individual wikis in to a shared view.

Similar to FedWiki in the 'chorus of voices' approach, rather than decentralised editing of a canonical page.
