An evolution into a platform that reaches farther. This is the culmination of what I have imagined for Write.as, the open source platform: enabling disparate writers to publish to a single writer's hub, e.g. read.write.as, to create a reading destination with many different authors, à la Medium.
Goals: Integration with the wider web. Implementation of “social” and other protocols that help writers share their work farther and expand the “tiny island” that is their personal blog.
- Support for publishing to “writing hubs”
- Ideally, open-sourcing the backend for the writing hubs
- Integrations with conventional silos like Twitter and Facebook
- Support for more publishing mechanisms, e.g. Micropub
