This interview with the author of #Zot & #Hubzilla has some interesting criticisms of #ActivityPub:
"The W3C editors haven’t provided a level playing field and I truly believe the specification is now worthless as a unifying force for the free web. [...] Any opportunity for free web unification using a common stack has probably been lost. Ironically, I believe this was ActivityPub’s primary goal, and that makes the specifications [...] flawed — critically."
@wu_lee Presumably someday ActivityPub version 2 will come along and fix some of ActivityPub's deficiencies. And surely Eugen will gain experience over time.
"These [zot] features [nomadic identity, decentralised access control] are totally alien to most every other network and service and you can't just create a patch to make them work. It's a completely different way of looking at the world and would take a complete re-write of most projects to realise or make compatible."
If you're saying #Zot is overcomplex, that might be valid - I wouldn't know.
But wanting to migrate your identity and set privacy settings on that identity's data, surely that *is* valid? Everyone knows how awkward it is to change your email address, which is why people get locked into Yahoo or Hotmail or wherever.
In fact I bet there's a lot of users at witches.town wishing for that feature right now: https://witches.town/@TheSupreme/99790692010452099
