I've been awarded the Samsung Stack Zero Grant

By Christopher Lemmer Webber on Thu 31 January 2019

Good news everyone! I've been awarded the Samsung Stack Zero Grant. But why not quote them?

Christopher Lemmer Webber is the co-editor and co-author of the now-ubiquitous ActivityPub protocol. While it provides a great framework for creating, updating, and deleting content across applications, it doesn’t provide any standardised mechanism for secure authorisation. With Spritely, Webber will work on extending the protocol in a backward-compatible manner, while at the same time building tools and applications that showcase its use. This will enable developers to build applications that enable richer interactions through a federated standard.

This should fund my next couple of years of work on full time advancement of the fediverse.

You may remember that I've talked about Spritely before. In fact I am finally in launch-mode... I am currently sitting in a wizard's tower at a hackathon, getting out the first release of Golem, a Spritely artifact.

Anyway, I'll be at FOSDEM 2019 giving a talk and on a panel. And after that I'll be speaking at CopyleftConf. Maybe I'll see you?

More news soon...
