"I would love for Tumblr to be a better part of the open web."
There was an explicit mention of Tantek Çelik (co-chair of the W3C group that standardize activitypub) that doesn't appear in the transcript. In theory they could go for the IndieWeb stack instead, tho.
@sandro @Gargron I'd note that @manton has integrated a cross-posting into #Microdotblog, so perhaps that may spark some ideas of how #Matodon could... Right now it seems that this is mostly RSS reading and friendly importing content from Tumblr.
@sandro @Gargron @manton - Here is the crossposting info for Microdotblog: https://www.manton.org/2019/08/23/tumblr-crossposting.html
