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/
Now on my blog too: https://dustycloud.org/blog/samsung-stack-zero-grant/
Well that's kind of handy!👌 🙌
@cwebber federated social games?
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 I'd very much care!!!
@ChrisWere @grainloom We'll see! It's a driving use case. The reason for the distributed game is partly that it tends to be a good driver for building cool things, even if the game part doesn't succeed itself. At any rate, the game part will come a bit later, but you can see the pre-fediverse game I did on the video of this page: https://www.gnu.org/software/8sync/
@cwebber the more standard scheme compatible the better I say.
@cwebber congratulations! you're gonna do some great things!
