Something you've done much better than Mastodon, Diaspora, etc. in my opinion is to build the shining city on the hill first, get a lot of stake from users, and then generalise it and give it to people to equip the wider community.
It could have been much harder (and less successful) to try and drop that software a year ago if that had been the priority. But now you have a crowd really excited about the whole thing.
P.s. Happy to see you folks explicitly using the POSSE term (first time I've noticed it here) as it's been clear for a while that that's what you're going for.
Loving everything about this. Thanks Dev team!
