solid:instanceContainer), or in a specific document (using
solid:instance). But nothing would happen automatically; it's up to client applications respect listings in the type index, and to add their own if no listing for their data exists yet.
Due to a disagreement with Twitter on whether they should have my phone number on top of my real name, I'm revisiting mastodon, so if any of you folks are also using mastodon and wish to connect, you'll find my tech account here: https://mastodon.cloud/@SAFEpress
Mastodon has improved a lot (mainly in responsiveness and quality of the community) in three years, and there's a very nice alternative UI called Pinafore, and an associated side-bar add-on for Firefox.
Hopefully Solid can move into this space too before long. I think comparing any Solid offerings with the performance of mastodon will be a good benchmark - it is seriously responsive. I have two accounts on different instances (servers) and if I have both open and toot or delete toot on one, the feed on the other updates instantly. Same with follows/unfollows, it is impressive and a far nicer UX than twitter. I think Solid should aim to match the mastodon UX in terms of usability and responsiveness, and if it does this could help adoption as I think twitter is getting less friendly and more invasive (as to be expected).
So join me on mastodon for a play and a chat. Lots of like minded folks on there. https://mastodon.cloud/@SAFEpress
