Hey it's @cwebber, your quadruple threat Cassandra

- FOSS all the things
- federate all the things
- ocap all the things
- lisp all the things

@cwebber
I like "lisp all the things" part a lot. Maybe ActivityPunk could use S-expressions instead of JSON? ;)

@pfm *hides canonical s-expressions representation of linked data they've been working on behind their back*

@pfm I actually should probably just toss the canonical s-expressions representation of linked data stuff out there somwhere, it's so damn easy to write and use and also is a way simpler canonicalization algorithm than the rdf graph canonicalization algorithm (plus it preserves the tree shape, though that may make RDF nerds angery)

@cwebber
So... when do you plan to do that? ;)

I wonder how it would affect fediverse. There would be one more format / notation.

I'm curious - still you write something about that security model and community resilience you had in mind?

@pfm "CapabilityPub" writeup coming this week.

Probably I wouldn't ship data over-the-wire with the canonical s-exps representation unless a client asked for it with the HTTP Accept header, I'd just serve json-ld. It turns out the canonical s-exps approach is great for... canonicalization though.

@pfm As for when I'll write up the canonical s-exps thing, dunno... it's not hard, I'm just swamped.
