Hi there, I’m just checking in since i received an email invitation
I’m not sure I’ll be physically present, however, I’ll follow the discussions with interest
I’m Eliot Berriot, Funkwhale’s maintainer. I live in Marseille, France, and work full-time on this project, which is roughly three-years old now.
The idea behind Funkwhale is to build a decentralized, free and self-hostable audio server where people can share and enjoy their music, podcasts, engage with their favorite creators, etc.
To implement the “decentralized” part of the roadmap, we’re in the process of implementing ActivityPub. This is still a work in progress, but we are successfully using the protocol to federate audio content between Funkwhale instances, and federation of user activity should kick-in during the first quarter of 2019.
I’m rather new to the decentralized stuff, so I’m interested in anything that can make the implementation and maintenance of an ActivityPub server easier. Another project I want to start in 2019 is to work on a small specification targetting content creators and consumers to help them send/receive donations, because I think it’s one core missing features of the decentralized internet.
I’m also interested in everything related to account migration/redirection and single-sign-on, but I never actually worked on this
Thank you for the invitation anyway, I’m looking forward to an interesting discussion!
