@Schepp When it is finished everyone should travel to Prague for a cosy ActivityPub workshop [we are currently preparing] and after happens weboftrust.info/next-event-pag

@cwebber Was there ever a reply regarding the workshop? Now that everything was nearly organized; It is not far away from my summer holidays and I think Manus idea was very kind, wasn't it ?
On the other hand the organizers of Perpignan want me to reply now but I can't … … …
And off course it is too late now for the EU money because they have summer holidays as well …

@cwebber How about the SocialCG meeting mentioned in the mailthread ? Sorry, but 50 minutes was not doable because I listened to a talk at re:publica and missed it. Do we have a 'go' for Prague now ?

If you're a #nextcloud contributor, translator or app developer, we'd love to support your travel to the conference in September! Hurry up and submit a request before the deadline!

Eben Moglen in his keynote at :

"The federation of all services is not an inconceivable idea....This is the intended goal of the little gesture I call : the manufacture of simple, inexpensive, self-administrating servers that we can hold in the palm of our hands and distribute throughout the world like apple seeds."

It has a repository here github.com/EliotBerriot/mnm - btw: Did you got my messages regarding next "Rebooting Web Of Trust" and the ActivityPub Workshop ?

@ton Just think about the final text. All the WebSub Hubs will be illegal and there is no definition of a "SILO" in the final law. You will have the same responsibilities than the platforms now. You will have to filter. That was the reason why the EU council wanted to hear the indieweb.

However … If you make money with your page you need to filter. This is why we had built a charitable foundation and it just makes going indie much more complicated. Also read the doubt of the ActivityPub people

@cwebber The photo is from a reportage of the first prototypes of these machines, 17 years ago. But if you own e.g. credit cards or a smartphone it doesn't make a difference. Does Jetblue force customers to use it ?

@cwebber Yes, indeed . In another tab I am currently watching a very cool (german) presentation by @cypherhippie from Vienna. I guess he would like to attend an ActivityPub workshop as well ;)

@cwebber Just wanted to mention that I like the idea to do the AP workshop in Prague very much.
Indeed a cool intersection …
There are awesome places we could share to stay.
