There's still lots to do on Postmarks, but here's a couple larger ideas describing where I'd like to see it go after the initial launch.
Postmarks currently makes it possible for you to follow one instance from another, but the "comment" functionality that exists on the platform is read-only and thus only aggregates replies from people who see your post when it's federated to a platform like Mastodon or FireFish. Building commenting functionality directly into the Network page will allow you to interact with the fediverse at large, but also make Postmarks a self-contained platform for all aspects of its functionality.
There's a lot of excitement around ActivityPub right now and it's nice that it enables two-way social functionality, but I'd also like to build some lightweight support for other publishing protocols into the app, so that no matter what methods your friends use to stay on top of what's happening on the web, Postmarks can provide that information for them. Atom support is already in the site, and if there are improvements that should be made there please let me know on the Github repo.
(lost? This is a demonstration bookmark for Postmarks, a new piece of software that lives on the Fediverse.)
