Decentralized contact book (free and open source)
Mastodon thread: https://mstdn.ca/@narF/110956632601603108
Can follow a friend, regardless which server host their profile, to receive their contact info (phone number, email, home address, etc)
Always up to date: When someone change their infos, their server sends it to all their friends (followers).
Open protocol: Any app can implement it. (Should be part of all contact app!)
Private: Encrypted end-to-end. I can share only parts of my profile to someone if I want (ex: just my email, not my home address)
Why isn’t WebFinger used for this? (What is web finger??)
One of the problems is the user side
Flokk had a nice idea of how to solve this, but super limited to closed networks :( - https://flokk.app/#/
What is preventing this idea from happening?
