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
Book-burning, concentration camps, cult of the strong leader, you know where this train terminates. https://twitter.com/gerryshih/status/1203518725921460225
I put up a tutorial of how to hack the activitypub.rocks website https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/how-to-hack-on-activitypub-rocks/375
> Basically, if you aren’t a Scheme hacker, editing the activitypub.rocks website is a great way to learn to become one! ;)
Hey all! Just a reminder that the next SocialCG meeting is in 45mins! https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/12-7-socialcg-telecon/339/5 https://www.w3.org/wiki/SocialCG#Meetings
hi all! just a reminder that the next Social CG meeting is tomorrow! Please take a look at the agenda here and let me know if you have anything to add!
I think this is about twice as hard for me to learn and execute as mutable datashards was, and that was a challenge.
Similarly to that (for mutable datashards, I was studying Tahoe-LAFS; for spritely goblins' distributed code, I'm studying CapTP), I'm not really inventing much new, just tweaking existing documented ideas, but it's a lot for me to soak in.
The spritely goblins networked programming stuff is moving along. I'm out of research mode and into "thinking about the protocol mode".
It's still slow. But you can see the influence of CapTP here: https://gitlab.com/spritely/goblins/commit/87f381c7696b35beaed6aafb38249f25e4ce5a2e
