Announcing ActivityPub Conf 2019! September 7th & 8th in Prague, immediately following Rebooting Web of Trust. https://dustycloud.org/blog/activitypub-conf-2019/
Space is limited, see post for details. We are also soliciting talks.
Hope to see you there!
@tuttle instead of doing this all over again how about we just jump to https://octodon.social/@cwebber/102485994129690548
@cwebber Hello, I respect your choice of using a Gmail address, but as I’m trying to make my union switch to something else (self-hosted Magma, maybe?) I’m interested in how Gmail helps coordinating with limited resources.
I can totally live without an answer though. Thanks, any way!
@guillemot If someone hadn't stepped up to do that as the coordination mechanism right then, we would have canceled the conference. Sounds like some people think that would have been better. I'll admit, it's very disheartening, especially for the people volunteering, and especially because we're self-funding this gathering.
Someone pointed out we could have used RiseUp. That's a good idea; if we had thought about it, I would have enthusiastically endorsed that. But we didn't.
@guillemot (I should clarify, that funding isn't all coming from me either; some other volunteers are throwing in resources. But it's all voluntary support to pull this thing together.)
