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
Oooooh dang I did good and married a DOCTOR
That is all to say... @mlemweb just passed her dissertation defense and is now DOCTOR Morgan Lemmer-Webber! CONGRATULATIONS MORGAN
okay, now *that's* dedication to the GNU system: https://wiki.gnu.tools/git/gnu-tools-website/tree/logo.scm
Totally! I’m working through this kind of stuff with my therapist right now, and increasingly I’m finding the most important part of organizing for me is that I have to have it in front of my face. Apps on phones and computers are not at all useful for daily organizing because they get tucked away behind work.
The pixels don't really match the grid as well as I'd hoped, but all-in-all not too bad for my second quilt ever, especially since I finished it in less than a week!
More or less, CapTP provides a secure distributed object system, where no more access than which has been intentionally handed out is possible. Sitting on top of a "netlayer" component, the abstractions for a secure networked communication system are given.
All in all, you can think of CapTP as a new abstraction layer win, akin to how TLS and TCP save devs time.
