It's public now! Spritely (and myself) have been awarded a Samsung Stack Zero grant! I'm funded for the next two years to bring ActivityPub and the fediverse to the next level. Secure interactions, object capabilities, p2p content delivery, all that stuff! https://samsungnext.com/whats-next/category/podcasts/decentralization-samsung-next-stack-zero-grant-recipients/
From the article:
> Christopher Lemmer Webber is the co-editor and co-author of the now-ubiquitous ActivityPub protocol. While it provides a great framework for creating, updating, and deleting content across applications, it doesn’t provide any standardised mechanism for secure authorisation. With Spritely, Webber will work on extending the protocol in a backward-compatible manner, while at the same time building tools and applications that showcase its use.
I guess this would be a good time to mention #spritely on freenode, which currently is "population me" only.
Oh yeah, maybe you're like "WTF is this Spritely thing, I haven't heard of this before now...???"
Well I have talked about it a bit, but not enough... it's been in the planning stages for a while, and as of this week, starting to ramp up into the execution space. Read more here: https://dustycloud.org/blog/spritely/
I'm very interested in social games, but still more interested in what you're working on to keep small instances from getting Slash-Dotted as the network of AP services grows 😂😎
@cwebber please use keys. nested SSH sessions. whatever. do not use OAuth or things involving passwords or sending secrets around.
@cwebber that is excellent news, congratulations!
I didn't know about this grant at all, kudos for Samsung are in order, it seems.
@cwebber CONGRATS! Really excited for you. And now that golem is released, I'm going to try to dig into it given the little I know of Racket. :)
