First OStatus Spec

Distributed Status Updates and Microblogging

Jessica Thornsby

OStatus have released a first draft of version 1.0 of their OStatus specification.

The OStatus mission is to provide a specification and usage of several web standards to allow people to communicate across different social networks. The related protocols OStatus applies, are PubSubHubbub, ActivityStreams, Salmon, Portable Contacts, and Webfinger. The OStatus team claim that “practically any software that generates RSS or Atom feeds could be OStatus-enabled.”

Please see the OStatus distributed status updates and microblogging project’s website, for more information.
