So I have an announcement. I sent an email to my work saying that I wanted to be able to focus on my work on taking advancing the federated social web to the next level. Read: better security / abuse resistance, richer interactions, virtual worlds.
How will I be funded to do this? I don't know. I do know that the state of the political world scares me enough that I feel I have to do this. If you want to support me: https://www.patreon.com/cwebber
Wish me luck. More updates soon.
Hi! You may most likely know me as co-editor of ActivityPub, the decentralized social network message which is more-than-likely how you're actually receiving this message! https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/
Other things you may want to know:
- I'm a user freedom activist (free software, free culture)
- I post a lot of leftie politics stuff
- Expect lots of tech posts around lisp, decentralized network stuff, obscure-ish programming history

Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!
@GetTogetherComm is a free open alternative to MeetUp.com.
The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.
There's an open issue for it here:
There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.
Can you help?
(It would be *so* cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance )
New episode of @librelounge is very on point for the fediverse! We talk about what federation is, how ActivityPub fits in, and @emacsen introduces his new WIP ActivityPub-using project ReviewPub https://librelounge.org/episodes/episode-11-what-is-federation-reviewpub.html
This is the first in what will be an ongoing series about federation, ActivityPub, and the decentralized social web. Hope you enjoy it!
Write up from the First Annual #CopyleftConf earlier this month, thanks to everyone who pitched in to help make it possible! https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2019/feb/22/1stCopyleftConf/

My personal account in the Mastodon/GNU Social fediverse is now this one, but I still use pump.io as my main social network (the Mastodon account will be a mirror of https://identi.ca/larjona, same as it was email@example.com).
Igalia is looking for a systems administrator, they particularly welcome candidates from under-represented groups.
