Federating the Murmurations Protocol

(This topic is a follow-up to Improvement to FEDERATION.md convention: Murmurations)


The Murmurations project itself is a good candidate to be a federated application. By adding S2S synchronization to the The Murmuration Index and everyone can set up their self-hosted instances within the Fediverse.

Update: I notified Murmurations project about the federation idea: Federated Murmurations with ActivityPub.

Welcome to the SocialHub @olisb, so nice to see you here.

This #fediversity:fediverse-futures is mostly an ideation area, where we think about cool ways to further Fediverse-related technology, and tap ActivityPub’s full potential.

But going further with FEDERATION.md in the way described here, would first of all require interest from the ActivityPub application developers, and that takes time. In the meantime it may be very interesting to discuss Federated Murmurations in more detail.

Note that I brought up Murmurations on some other locations too, also merely brainstorming:

Note too that regarding federation the Murmurations Library also should be part of what is federated, so every aggregator can collect those schema’s they are most interested in.

Update: @olisb I have also brought Murmurations to attention of Yarmo, the Keyoxide maintainer: https://codeberg.org/keyoxide/web/issues/88

Hi @m3me
 a small heads-up: I saw you are launching The Ethics Tools Directory at Greaterthanlearning, and I think Murmurations might be of interest to you in that regard :slight_smile:

PS. Given time I will do some submissions. We should have some good candidates at HTC forum and awesome-humane-tech.

Thanks @aschrijver - the directory is just a concept for now but there is a fair bit of interest across the ecosystem for a dynamic and validated set of tools to support ethical decision making in digital products.

Murmurations definitely looks interesting. More reading for me to do :slight_smile:

I should also cross-ref an earlier thread here, that I somehow missed before, started by @strypey mentioning Murmurations:

At Solid there’s a use case to track Solid apps and Libraries using Linked Data, and there may be an opportunity to combine Murmurations federation with Solid technology flowing from that:
