Hi! SocialWG meeting is in 15 minutes, now would be a great time to connect to Mumble and make sure your audio is working :) w3.org/wiki/SocialCG/2017-05-0

W3C Social Web Community Group is having its kick-off call in a little less than three hours! (Friday, May 5th of 2017 at 4PM GMT!) Let's talk the future of the federated social web!

* Call details wiki page: w3.org/wiki/SocialCG/2017-05-0 (feel free to add topics)
* Original announcement: w3.org/community/swicg/2017/05

Hope to see you there!

Okay, yup, so I moved over here, to the octodon.social account. Update your subscriptions!

I might repost a few of the posts I make here on the toot.cat account that are Social Web Incubator Community Group organizing stuff so people who haven't noticed the move are still in the loop. But I'm mostly moved over.

Thanks to both admins of toot.cat and octodon.social for being nice and giving me places to hang out here!

About toot.cat, I'm gonna miss it, though hopefully I won't have to miss it too much because federation. I really enjoyed being there and the people are great. A whitelist probably doesn't work for me because I'm trying to get the word out about a federation standard, but all the best for what toot.cat needs!

So, setting this up as my new account, though I'm slightly nervous because I've seen a few 500 errors since I set up the account. Seems like a nice place with nice people on it though! (Once Mastodon and friends are running ActivityPub I'll self-host. Due to heavy amounts of irony, federation standards deadlines are keeping me from doing best by federation and self-hosting at the moment.)

hm, octodon.social seems to be throwing errors atm.

Last week at Emacs Berlin I gave a demo of Synaesthetic (image glitching tool) and of Mastodon.el (toot from Emacs). Here's the video youtu.be/qnSrxrihiBQ

@xor Have a link to an article explaining the phishing atttack?

I'm not using gmail, but I'm curious what it's doing.

And in ActivityPub, that's basically selecting who you insert this notice into their inbox for.

You can imagine AS2 addressing as basically email addresses. Sending to such an address means actively POST'ing to a specific inbox endpoint, which usually triggers adding to the inbox collection.

@arunisaac Plan to run my own server of something something ActivityPub, but I'm waiting till I redo my server hosting setup (which is on the agenda, but getting ActivityPub spec out the door comes first, including the test suite and spec work and...)

I've made a github ActivityPub issue for this search-engine controversy, with the idea that protocol support might help. Consider summarizing your thoughts in github.com/w3c/activitypub/iss

@Balor @vhf @cwebber @maiyannah

Hm, if toot.cat is going whitelist-only, I think that's fine for toot.cat, but maybe not fine for me. Maybe I should move.

Any node recommendations I might consider?

Removing items from my agenda like a boss.

Actually I'm just removing due dates and tagging with "reschedule" like a wimp.

Cleaning up my orgmode agenda. I haven't touched it in so long I've become afraid of it.

@maiyannah @sandhawke Not familiar with what that means. Is that like a tag on a person's profile?

Distinction is, if I select "family", I'm probably selecting my own family, not everyone's family :)
