History of Hubzilla
What makes Hubzzilla special?

"Hubzilla represents what I like to think of as state of the art in decentralisation technology. It goes far beyond what we did in Friendica when it comes to decentralising core services which used to be available only on centralised silos. We decentralise everything. This builds on work I started in Friendica but it took a platform re-write to fully realise.
Some federation bits were added a couple of years ago due to popular demand, but they are in conflict with a couple of core features such as nomadic identity. Nomadic identity is really special. You can create online clones of your channel and pop up at another site if your current site is having issues (either temporarily or permanently). This works incredibly well - unless you have friends on other networks. My original account has moved a few times now. All my original friends are still there. My Friendica and Diaspora friends however are not. They need to be reconnected, and this is silly because nomadic identity was created to address that problem.
The other feature we've spent a lot of time on is decentralised access control. This means you can publish webpages, videos, photos, create chatrooms, etc. and all of your web properties can have privacy settings that work seamlessly with anybody on Hubzilla. They don't need to have an account on your site. We can also create 'access tokens' and allow permissions to folks that don't have hubzilla accounts, so you can share a private video with your mom (as an example).
These features are totally alien to most every other network and service and you can't just create a patch to make them work. It's a completely different way of looking at the world and would take a complete re-write of most projects to realise or make compatible. As a result we were kind of forced to develop an entire suite of web publishing and cloud storage components which work with our services. This represents over four years of evolution from the original Friendica code base, so the projects are now quite different."
