Subject: Re: [Ows_solutions] Lorea - social system

yup, we know :) we've been talking to them for a while. issue is that
it's not actually built on drupal - it's built on elgg :( but one of
their lead dev types is in #ows-fga with us, so we're DEFINITELY talking.

the interface and orientation of lorea aren't quite the same as what
we're looking at for fga - we've got a heavier groups & collaborative
tools focus, i think. the federative boundaries seem a bit different,
too, which is pertinent some foundational aspects of the user experience.

what's clear, though, is that we're all working in a very similar vein,
and we're looking at a focus on standards and interoperability - after
all, these decentralized systems oughtn't be just the new version of
silos, right?!!? so yeah, lots of conversation there, fear not.
