#ActivityPub support on Write.as was just the first part of what I wanted to create for the #fediverse :fediverse: Next, I wanted a place to read everything in peace.

Here's just the start of that second part: Read.as, built from scratch to be #SelfHosted and #FOSS.

Soon you'll be able to create an account on the Read.as instance, and follow platforms like #Plume and #WriteAs that federate long-form articles — for now it just needs to be run locally.

@dhasenan Absolutely. The goal is to have a reading platform that works with several open protocols

@write_as

So, if we are doing the 'like existing services, but federated' idea, read.as would be similar to Feedly. Correct?

@dhasenan

@RussSharek Bingo. And besides federation, it'll be a little different by letting you curate posts on a public profile (for those who want to).

@dhasenan

@RussSharek Glad you think so :) I thought it'd be interesting, and useful in a bunch of new ways.
@dhasenan

@write_as

In addition to curating a feed. It might also be worthwhile to be able to curate a list of links, like pinboard.in

@dhasenan

@RussSharek Great point! I'm sure that could all be done on top of ActivityStreams / ActivityPub too
