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/

And here's where many of us here, including me, differ from Apple:
"We agree with Apple that security is at the heart of all data privacy and privacy rights. Where we disagree is in who holds the keys. Your data isn’t truly private or secure, if someone else holds the keys."
I wish copyright didn't hate archiving and hate the preservation of history and knowledge and human emotion.
Currently the only defense against copyright is trillionaire Internet oligarchy and surveillance capitalism, which is not an especially great trade. But it's the world, upheld by treaties and legislation, that our elders and betters (ie, Disney and Google, between them) chose to create.
Hopefully I don’t have to explain why this is a terrible idea: https://mastodon.at/@infosechandbook/100931519028849748
The Key Principles of the IndieWeb.
— Own your data, content, metadata and your identity.
— Publish data for humans first, machines second.
— Scratch Your Own Itches. Make tools, templates, etc. for yourself first.
— Use what you make!
— Document your stuff.
— Open source your stuff!
— UX and design is more important than protocols, formats, and data models.
— Build platform agnostic platforms.
— Longevity. Build for the long web.
— Have fun.
Just a temporary account, planning on setting up my own instance.
German, more or less male (if that's even important), computer nerd and I like #ActivityPub.
