The Murmurations protocol 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. But also note that this idea can be based on the concept of Murmurations only, not necessarily the already existing project.
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:
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
I just responded to a topic on the Solid forum by Sir Tim Berners-Lee about setting up a Solid-enabled FAQ application. My additional proposal was to extend beyond FAQ Q&A’s to any Linked Data snippet and turn knowledge aggregation around in similar ways as @olisb Murmurations protocol, but - drumroll… - federated, of course.
