Listening to an interview with @Gargron on #TheChangelog podcast. It's really good! They talk about the early history of Mastodon, how federation works, and what's so exciting about #ActivityPub. I love seeing these sorts of publicity efforts - let's grow the #Fediverse!

Was in the middle of this episode when I decided to give mastodon another shot lol. Pretty interested in how federation works, never really took the time to look into it. It sounds a bit like an in between step from what we have now and what block chain is hoping to be if I understand correctly.
Any good resources for federation you’ve seen?
