Made an update over at my Patreon account: "ActivityPub Conference and much more"

It's also on my blog if you prefer

As you can see, a lot is happening. Thanks to all of those who are donating; funding this work is very difficult, but I know that donating can also be difficult. I usually work about 60 hours a week towards user freedom; I hope you can see that I am trying to make good use of your donations.

We prepared your next In-flight Entertainment :
#apconf Intro, 2 keynotes, 9 talks featuring unique delight by @cwebber and others -->


Happy Landing and spread the word.

#ActivityPub Conference #Video
#Federation #awesome

I'm really happy that all the videos from #apconf are now available on #ConfTube, a #PeerTube instance dedicated to conference and community events: @apconf

During #ActivityPubConf #apconf : What are the downsides of #ocaps ?
@cwebber : Well, they can be delegated really easily (but so can ACLs by proxy so ACLs are misleading)

me (in my head) : noooo, ACLs are difficult to delegate in practice and that's what counts. BUT ocaps can also be made difficult to delegate by requiring each action to be signed using a key that is also used for other things !

It's inspiring to see so many sparkling eyes, so many different people genuinely do their best to try to change the world. I've heard this phrase countless times in startup pitches and it always seemed empty. I didn't hear it once today but it was in the air and it was filled to the brim with meaning, with hard work, with dreams. I'm extremely honored to be among this crowd and thanks all for the hard work!

So much wonderful stuff yesterday at #apconf between Mark Miller's keynote and the really truly wonderful unconference sessions.

It'll take a while for me to unpack it all, but I'll write it up soon!

My dream for Mastodon is for it to be a viable choice as a publishing platform for any creator. In other words, for people to not feel like they're locked in to Twitter or Instagram if they want to be professionally successful.

Ich habe ein Kapitel zum Handbuch beigetragen. Es erscheint übermorgen im Verlag S. Fischer. Mein kurzer Beitrag schon vorab hier:

@dmitri hi there! in case you use a desktop browser: there is a "Enable advanced web interface" in preferences - for multi-column views

A Twitter employee asked why their employer won't ban neo Nazi tweets like they banned ISIS tweets.

The answer is that if you teach an AI to ban Nazis, it bans a lot of Republicans.

When haters go after your looks and differences, it means they have nowhere left to go. And then you know you’re winning!
I have Aspergers and that means I’m sometimes a bit different from the norm. And - given the right circumstances- being different is a superpower.

As many people know, right now my main source of funding is the Samsung Stack Zero grant I got to fund my work on Spritely. (Thank you again to the Samsung Stack Zero team for having faith in me!)

Some people have asked: what's your funding plan once that grant runs out? I don't have one other than the Patreon.

I have a buffer, but I've been burning it for some time; it's not sustainable. I do know the work I'm doing now is the most important work I *can* be doing.

I was able to export/import my follows into the new account on a different server and within minutes my home feed was the same as I'm used to and felt like, well, "home". I haven't done that many times before so it's still fascinating to me.

@Gargron congrats to v2.9!

We would like to propose the integration of DIDs ( into the current mastodon fediverse.

There seems to be a lot of overlap with your work on the move functionality, so we wanted to ask if this concept is fine from your point of view:

We hope @cwebber likes this approach too 😃 - a small pot of funding has been secured for this project here:

The team consists of @peacekeeper @fonfon and myself.
