@Hamishcampbell @bob It looks like this is the relevant specification document:
I'm not aware of anything currently using the OData format and in the context of federated systems I think it would be better to stick with the ActivityStreams vocabulary, which is what ActivityPub is based on.
@bob @Hamishcampbell this is based on atompub which is the same thing activertypub is built on. Am format agnostic as long as its #4opens am not soure that activertypub implements the update data option, its not in any of the apps. For the backend am looking to build a huge distributed "lossy" database - the data soup were the apps are just laddles tto this bubbleing coldren. No resion you can use activertypub to dip in for norshment :)
@hamishcampbell @bob @Hamishcampbell It sounds like what you want is a distributed database with redundant storage. Tahoe-LAFS is similar to that in that some servers can go down but the data can still be reconstructed, but those things are usually immutable data only.
If you're using text files as a database then the old skool method would just be to rsync a bunch of servers. Syncthing would be a more modern way of achieving the same result.
@bob @hamishcampbell bit more dinamic than that - its a human network/database built out of flows of trust http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2020/03/05/what-is-the-omn/
@Hamishcampbell @bob this is of coures what mastodon trys to build on the work of twitter. BUT mastodon is based on individuals - am looking to build the same based on "flows" which can be anything. This should speak activertypub, RSS, activertystreams and odata etc. its just data in and out - what matter is who conects the flows - the social side of tech, and what these flows nurish as an outcome #indymedia
