Hubzilla seems to do so many things, I wonder why social.coop don't use it? It has forums, blogs, wikis, calendars, events, chatrooms... and it federates.

Mind you, Drupal looked pretty nifty when I first started using it. Didn't take long for me to get disabused of that... it's all singing, all dancing, somewhat in the way that an aircraft carrier is.

Abridged comment from [Loomio group](loomio.org/d/dbiroxpy/37) by @strypey

"Hubzilla and the Zot protocol are incredible, definitely worth a look. The UX could use work, and it takes a bit of getting your head around. But that's because it can be hard to grok the brilliance of Zot's solutions until you've had some painful experiences of the more head-scratching federation problems it sets out to solve."

e.g.
- node downtime
- nomadic user data
- privacy / selective sharing

@wu_lee yeah it can be quite an undertaking to get it to do what you want. It is quite powerful though.

Just to be clear, do you mean Drupal or Hubzilla, @clayton?

@wu_lee Drupal. I'm working on a project to try and address that problem in Drupal, through . It's a work in progress but we're getting there. :)

@wu_lee personal opinion: it feels bloated and frankly overhyped....

@wu_lee but does it do it well?
There's such a thing as too many features.

@wu_lee there’s something to be said for doing one thing, and doing it well.
