The Salmon Protocol: Unification of Conversation Entities

Aimed at extending the benefits while mitigating the shortcomings of social aggregation systems like PubSubHubbub, the Salmon protocol seeks to unify the conversation threads from source publishers through to distributed layers and subscribers.
