Playing with scuttlebutt for the first time today. Very impressive.

Very appropriately, I met one of its developers in a pub IRL.

i'm confused. should that replace identi.ca? what about status.net and all the hype with mastodon? interoperate much? sigh.

pretty neat stuff... which pub are you guys on? does it matter?

I'm on several pubs, my impression is that at least the public ssb network is fairly well connected and it should not matter even if you ended up on different ones, I'd still see you.

It's a 3 hop gossip network, and pubs count as hops, so me -- mypub -- yourpub -- you works because 3 hops. Assuming our pubs are connected, and the pubs I can see are all interconnected.

Didn't know about the 3-hop detail. Thanks, joeyh.

Yeah, which pub doesn't matter.
