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
Speaking of recovering and getting back on track, trying to fix my mail setup a bit. For various reasons, an upgrade some time ago brought useful features in one area but broke another feature in others. It's lead me to be fairly behind on email.
Spent about an hour (?) working on it and it's fixed!
Amazing how long it can take to get around to stuff like that...
ha ha jokes, but by dads this time
