Thanks for reaching out. This whole thing has been a nightmare of a puzzle. I tried to reach out to everyone I had information from for GNU social but got bounces or alternating accounts. The biggest piece of information I had was from a post that Mikael made in 2016. I used this as the basic framework and dug where I could to fill in the missing pieces. I will try to update this article accordingly to your notes, but I’m getting a little mixed up with some of these details.
@maiyannah Btw to get the history straight: 1. Evan makes Laconica. 2. Evan gets funding, it turns into StatusNet, cool…social.umeahackerspace.se
Also, good avatar.
