CFP is out.
I still have problems with the sponsoring of the event. If Gaggle, M$ et al are sponsoring it, I might not be interested. I know there's a couple of people in the @fosdem organization that feel that way as well, but they're a minority. AFAIK the issue is to be able to spend time to find more smaller sponsors rather than a small bunch of large sponsors. So the more interested people, the more chances to avoid surveillance capitalist sponsors.
Anyone wants to propose a devroom for #ActivityPub?
Deadline is September 20.
@how I don't have the time nor expertise to contribute, but I'd definitely attend an AP devroom. The AP panel last year was extremely interesting.
@how Unfortunately I won't be there. :(
And yes I'd like to help make it happen. :)
@cj I'd love to have this discussion on socialhub.network, but the blockade is still going on, we cannot invite new people... So I'm trying to convince both @cwebber and @mxb to move to socialhub.activitypub.rocks, where it belongs. All we need is a backup of the existing discussion, an email address with infinite aliases, and a DNS pointing at a Discourse instance.
