Yes that's a grand title, dear fedizens :)
With the enormous rise in popularity of #decentralization we should think to what extent fediverse is applicable. Are we mostly Microblogging++ or can our tech be a true backbone to society?

I think Federated Identities is the missing piece. I should be able to participate in every aspect of the social cloud, while using only one identity for all of them.
(Unless I have some reason to create other identities. Although a dark pattern there is 'Sock Puppets'.)
This makes it simple and it means a video I post on PeerTube can be cross referenced to my Mastodon toots and Lemmy posts, everything linking back to the one identity.
There's one thing I think the #Fediverse is missing: Federated identities.
Let's suppose I have a #Mastodon identity. (I do. I even operate my own Mastodon server so that identity is fully under my control.) But now I want to participate in a different Fediverse activity, say on a Lemmy server – now I have to create a new identity there, one entirely disconnected from my 'main' identity here on Rusted Neuron.
This seems both wasteful and overly complicated from a UI perspective.
don't get me wrong here, I think the project is great and love it wholeheartedly, which is why I run my own instance. the motivation is to see it become something better.
Lemmy is the Fediverse's alternative to Reddit, allowing discussion and link-sharing in a familiar format. It's FOSS and federated, so different communities are hosted on different servers.
It's currently only federating between Lemmy servers, but it will eventually federate with other Fediverse server types like Mastodon etc.
just a semi-regular reminder that I maintain a list of AP implementations and it sees infrequent update from time to time:
Better lists are available elsewhere such as the Awesome-Fediverse list or the Feneas/Fediverse.Party watchlist for activitypub apps:
