Got a chance today to finally get back to ZOT planning, and the first thing to do was rip out everything that is ugly or not-elegant and go back to basics. I also think XML has had its day in the sun and despite XML's standard-ness and namespace extensibility, JSON is so much more efficient and will probably play a much larger role in zot2. JSON namespaces... hmmm, intriguing. 

Hey, off topic, but if anybody wants a couple of little projects that would be very useful, we could use auto-complete for private mail recipients instead of the ugly select widget.  Would also be nice if somebody wanted to port the bbcode comment editing from diabook to the zeros. Just some little things that would make nice little projects - not too hard,  and would make a difference.

XML has XSLT, which is an extremely useful tool. Is there something comparable for JSON?

@Michael Vogel zot is currently on the drawing board.

We were originally trying to provide something that would eventually allow statusnet,Diaspora, Friendica, and email to eventually merge into one protocol.

I'm trying something considerably less ambitious with zot2.

Currently we use DFRN, which is overweight and overly-complex, though it's pretty reliable and extensible.

@J David Eisenberg - yes, it's called JavaScript.
