Nostr - decentralized communication protocol

An interview was done with (I believe) an SIL affiliated outlet.

The interview is with the creator of a client for the Nostr protocol.

In brief, Nostr is like Mastodon/ActivityPub without some of the drawbacks like a server owning your account.

Some things that might interest SIL in particular is that SIL could run their own Nostr relay and/or work with Nostr clients to promote a wide range of languages, font support, etc.

Nostr use cases are often more focused on broadcast and less focused on things like private communication, but the protocol is so generic that there are a wide range of apps popping up (even a Reddit clone, cyberspace protocol, etc).
