I'm so excited to present my work on #Fediverse-wide hashtag federation, search, and subscription at #ActivityPubConf.

The recording will be available later, but if you're interested in enabling a global consistent view on hashtags, know stuff about DHTs or #ActivityPub relays, you can have a look at the paper: git.orlives.de/schmittlauch/pa

Please contact me about any questions, remarks or other feedback!

So here's a TL;DR:

@schmittlauch Great initiative. Since I see that there are instances which require that users post OT content as "Unlisted" it is difficult to spread a message beyond the own group of followers or direct instance peers.

I wondered how would the hashtags be accessible in the UI? Would that be like a separate timeline, or would subscribed hashtags appear in the Home timeline?
