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
i've defended rms' pedantry
i believe in free software
i believe copyleft is essential
i believe AGPL3 is the best license
i disagree with those who say "software freedom isn't important these days" or that ease of use is more important
but every time RMS makes the news he undermines the FSF and the free software movement 🤦♂️
i just e-mailed them to discontinue my recurring donation and told them why
gonna increase my donation to software freedom conservancy instead
