There's hope for @davewiner because we have webmention, <a href="http://brid.gy">brid.gy</a>, <a href="http://silo.pub">silo.pub</a> http://
“Because we've lived with this approach for the whole life of the Internet, there's always been this problem with posting in multiple places, there are all kinds of systems we can't build. Pipes that go from my hub for all things related to biking to someone else's hub for all things related to meatball heroes. How do we know there are no connections here? There might be. But these places don't exist. Can't exist. Because we split the world up in a different way. The person isn't important, isn't the central organizing structure. Facebook is.” http://
With webmention we have been building those pipes between hubs.
