Invitation to prepare the ActivityPub round table at FOSDEM

Please send this message to people you invite!

Dear X,

the Decentralized Internet & Privacy Devroom at FOSDEM 2019 is organizing an ActivityPub round table with the ActivityPub editors, promoters and implementors. You’ve been identified as one of these actors and therefore invited to participate in the preparatory phase of the round table.

There will be two phases:

  • during the month of January, as many actors as possible will gather online to discuss federation topics and select the stage for FOSDEM. This message grants you access to the online platform that is going to be used to prepare the event. It requires Internet access and a bit of time and will;
  • during FOSDEM, on Saturday at 18:00, the ActivityPub round table will gather selected people from the online phase to push the public discussion live and on record. It requires presence in Brussels for live participation, or a remote access for video streaming from the FOSDEM facilities.

During the first phase, you and other actors of the ActivityPub federation will discuss the topics to be addressed during the round table, as well as help select who is going to be on stage. We want this to be a collective process involving as many people that have created the standards and are implementing code and the communities using it! Even if you’re not going to be in Brussels for the upcoming FOSDEM edition, we’d be happy to have you on board for this preparatory phase.
