Easterhegg 2019 – ActivityPub, the Fediverse, and Everything.

https://media.ccc.de/v/eh19-197-activitypub-the-fediverse-and-everything-

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?
