Ten years ago the 1st commit to the git repository of Mistpark was made by Mike Macgirvin, a project that since has become Friendica accumulating some 27.000 commits contributing the work of more then 250 people from all around the world.
Together we have build a social media platform that had many faces over the years. It has grown from a decentralized communication platform into an integral part of the Fediverse and Federation. Allowing its users to interact with their friends and family across the borders of nodes, projects and physical distance outside the world of data-harvesting corporations.
Thank you Mike and everybody else who has contributed their time to the project over the years! And while we are preparing the 2020.06 release of Friendica, lets have a big party to celebrate ten years of this wonderful part of the free social web.
