is developing a platform for open local knowledge.

openEngiadina is an acknowledgment that data creation and curation is a social activity. We are developing a mashup between a knowledge base (like Wikipedia) and a social network using the XMPP protocol and the Semantic Web.

The network protocol we have been using is ActivityPub. This seemed to be a perfect fit. We believe that managing knowledge is a social activity and ActivityPub is primarily a protocol for social interactions. Furthermore, ActivityPub can be extended to allow arbitrary RDF content via the JSON-LD serialization.

openEngiadina: From ActivityPub to XMPP — inqlab

^ note they go on to say why ActivityPub wasn't the right fit. But "We believe that managing knowledge is a social activity" is very interesting.
