The distribution idea is getting around

[Happy birthday to gyzki!]

Those who are involved in the effort to produce a distributed version of LJ *really* should take a dig into what's going on over on the Twitter side of the fence. Due to Twitter's fundamental instability, there's a movement afoot to create a fully-distributed alternative to it. Given how much momentum Twitter has, if this *does* happen, it's likely to happen big, and those of us trying to produce reasonably open conversational systems will probably need to accomodate it.

(metageek may be pleased to know that some people appear to be talking about just the sort of Jabber-based architecture he advocated in conversation last week...)
