Yes, we want to talk about ActivityPub - because it's what drives many popular fediverse services (e.g. mastodon). We will cover history and basic structure of the spec. And then discuss whether or not this a case of XKCD 927 and if Moxie Marlinspike's blogpost applies. This talk will provide a complete picture of the current form of whats known as "ActivityPub". We will answer all the big Qs: - What is it? - Where did it come from? - What is it good for? - Is this the bootloader of skynet or just another instance of XKCD 927 https://xkcd.com/927/? - Who is behind all of this? about this event: https://conference.c3w.at/eh19/talk/AUSLFD/
