I put version control hosting + activitypub (read: federated github-alternative) on tomorrow's socialcg agenda https://www.w3.org/wiki/SocialCG/2018-06-06
Speaking as a user — THIS 500 KB site is the web I want.
Speaking as someone who worries about the architecture of the web — I keep thinking that we’ve built a platform that is serves, in this example: 9% content, 91% ads and tracking.
The next tragic unfolding in the Allen/Farrow saga. Now we have abused kids on both sides of the Woody Allen debate. https://mosesfarrow.blogspot.com/2018/05/a-son-speaks-out-by-moses-farrow.html
I find this article highly credible, but also have high regard for Ronan Farrow who disagrees: https://twitter.com/RonanFarrow/status/999703910263742471
What exciting things do you have planned for your day in Berlin, Sandro?
Uh, sitting on a bench. Why?
Fellow panelists here in Berlin: Konrad Lischka, Jochen Spangenberg, Falk Steiner
Konrad opened with pitching algorithmic diversity via ActivityPub, but no one directly suggested #Mastodon
Just realized that fact: Mastodon instances should indicate the name of the company/organization providing the network for this instance.
The problem is: if in a country only one network provides connectivity for 99% of the available instances like (maybe) the OVH company in France, users should know this data in order to open a backup account on an instance hosted in another network, why not in another country.
Currently there's a discussion on the projects GitHub, and if you know anything that may help us that's the place to go. Please try to read the conversation before pitching in though!

Okay, finished my slides for #WebConf talk, enough to go to bed. Gentle comments welcome. Had to trim a lot I wanted to include due to time constraints (25 minutes).
This is an invited W3C talk at a web research conference, so I'm hoping to inspire researchers to do cool new projects on top of the Fediverse software and protocols.
