This is a conversation on this topic from the gitter.im/solid chat channel:

Does anybody know what format I would need to link to a message content in another pod rather than embed the message content in the chat creator’s pod file? for example, here is a truncated extract of the simple chat index.ttl with some chat flow and a message.
n:content "how are you doing?";
flow:message :Msg1556303342376, :Msg1556303387381, :Msg1556303454449.
Basically what I’m after is to store each chat in each pod respectively, rather than all the chat in the person’s pod who created the chat - does that make sense?

@Julian-Cole “Basically what I’m after is to store each chat in each pod respectively, rather than all the chat in the person’s pod who created the chat - does that make sense?” – does that mean that chat participants can change what they said?

@Julian-Cole I wasn’t really kidding. One person has a memory of a conversation and another has a different one. The memories evolve independently. And who has the definitive record? Can they be trusted with that?

Re April 27, 2019 3:56 AM, is it possible to move that to https://forum.solid.org so it can be discussed in a more memorable manner that’s also useful for future recall?
The answer to this question will also help others understand what Linked Data enables implicitly, ditto Solid app dev best practices etc…

@kidehen well, at this point I was just looking for loose opinions on what other people thought, I can move it to forum post once I have some more thoughts perhaps.
Julian Cole @Julian-Cole 11:17
@sideshowtom If i did a hash of your chat message and stored that in my pod against our conversation I would know if the chat had been tampered with; I was thinking that chat should work like social posts and comments, in that the message, post, comment belonged to you - not the person hosting the chat?
Julian Cole @Julian-Cole 11:26
@kidehen gitter chat is anything but “memorable”; a few months back i took the time to scroll though all the solid app-development messages from the beginning and I found some really great helpful tips on Solid which are buried amongst the other chat. If I was doing a ‘gitter’ style chat I’d want to add sticky questions / comments and an events board and maybe tags in there too
Tom @sideshowtom 11:32
@Julian-Cole Well I dont know I guess it depends on who is hosting the chat and what their filters are. Maybe theyre just looking for information relevant to a product they sell and maybe only positive comments, and they filter out and forget negative ones. If on the other hand each participant hosts their own comment maybe they want to revise their comments for some reason, say maybe to claim that they made a prediction that came true, like with a stock. BTW, I agree with Kingsley that this might be better on the forum.

@Julian-Cole I think its a big topic and it would be nice to have it there for future reference.
