@elizabethtai.com (@liztai@hachyderm.io) Thanks! It took us a while to come up with #POSSE too! Both the concept and name.

Roughly conceptually described in a 2010-05-26 interview^1:

 1. Publish on your own site, own your URLs, your permalinks, and
 2. Syndicate out to other sites. Your text updates to Twitter, your checkins to Foursquare, your photos to Flickr etc.

A few months later in a whiteboard architecture diagram^2.

Then *two years* after that @willnorris.com (@will@willnorris.com) and I finally came up with the name/acronym POSSE!^3
