i did not have much appreciation for Deep Purple until I listened to this :)
thinking even in UNO , and its interaction with other networks....

federation with diaspora is broken, all pods with version ≥ do not receive our comments or like in the posts started from diaspora.
Is a 'crippled' federation.
(and  I have also  some problem with the new versions of friendica - already talking about federation)

The main problem with diaspora is that the majority of the pods today use a version ≥ ...

The biggest need we have is neutral communication between project developers, free from rock throwing.

This was one of my biggest goals towards the end of my tenure at Diaspora. It is a very long, frustrating process - I've talked to quite a lot of people in different project spaces, and some of them do indeed like to throw rocks. Not Invented Here Syndrome sucks. So does settling on the most watered-down thing for cross-platform communication. But we all have to start somewhere, and I believe that many projects have good pieces to the puzzle.

This Jason have an account in hubzilla? Did he try to know hubzilla? did he try to talk with diaspora from hubzilla? Did he try to understand federation problems, communication problems ? Did he try to create connections from hubzilla?
He have a friendica account ? He tested a friendica account?

I get that perhaps trying out other platforms sets a good precedent - but it doesn't necessarily make you any worse of a person for not using other things. Some people within the federation are totally happy with the one platform they're using, and their desire is to simply get their platform to work with other platforms. Some people believe that confirming to protocols and setting up proper endpoints is all they need to do for their application - and their mentality is not entirely misguided.

You could throw the same argument at the MediaGoblin people for just using Pump and not using any other protocol - that doesn't necessarily invalidate their desire to put a working federated web together across multiple platforms. They're just following what they believe to be the best way forward.

I have mused on the possibility of writing federation protocol connectors for Hubzilla. I know nothing about it, of course, but I do know that Hubzilla can function as a polyglot for different protocols. If Diaspora, Hubzilla, and Pump all moved to use a specific protocol, we could implement it in the same way that Diaspora federation is implemented, and then figure out how to contribute zot's best bits to an upstream implementation of the spec. Or use Zot as a fallback for Hubzilla users.

Honestly, if we could just get MagicAuth for everyone, that would be truly fucking magical. You could resolve one of the biggest UX problems of interacting with federated content in different places on the web.
Well politics in a noble sense is about building a common vision, which helps working together towards a common goal.
Sean, you know what you have done in recent years ? you showed interest and not only had  interest, you've tried to understand, you used, you helped, all behaviors which then prompted other people to also have an interest in  #federation, the initial friendicaRED plans  with zot were not the ones to have federation with diaspora, things have evolved because people, devs saw interest from/by other people.

That's what I say, I do not speak technically.

Really people have to put aside the ego, and be more empathetic.
