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
nice to meet you 😊
@cwebber Hi! Took a peek at your website and noticed we're both in Madison, WI! Are there any FOSS or lisp groups in Madison that you're involved with?
@paluche Hi! There's a Clojure meetup I go to sometimes. My spouse and I are also running some workshops to teach Racket to non-programmers.
@cwebber ah yes, Scribble, right? neat. is that through the UW somehow?
@paluche We're doing it as an event through the UW Material Culture program
@cwebber catching up about ActivityPub and the standards process. Reading the w3c rec right now. Thanks so much to you, Amy Guy and others.
Sounds like it was an incredible commitment of time and energy. I am fascinated by this tech and the notion of federation on the web and so appreciate ActivityPub and related standards.
I'm working on a tool for community organizers and I think a decentralized model makes a lot of sense
Thanks again for all the work & for documenting yall's efforts!
You seem to be a most excellent social enabler, @djsundog!
