In this parallel dimension, people self-organise into open groups that create art, write code, and even build cities. Their technology runs on consensus and their society is fuelled by data. But data is not just a resource — it’s an extension of individual identity and collective culture. People give informed consent to data gathering and enjoy transparency of use.
Journey to a new world and bring back powerful, resilient technology; explore radical, paradigm-shifting ideas; and take part in cutting-edge discourse. Explore protocols like DAT, IPFS and ActivityPub, alongside ideas such as net neutrality and proof of stake. Experience decentralised platforms like Matrix and Mastodon, and support the equal commons of all.
We submitted a proposal which gets tracked in this GitHub repository. You can track the progress of the proposal as well as we can by keeping an eye on this GitHub issue I hope we get accepted: would be a ton of fun and hopefully we would meet a few members of the community too
I think that’s the right topic at just the right level. Work through the process of creating a website to show how simple it is and then explain what’s happening in the background. Maybe you (or someone here) could create a few flashy sample sites to show off, or a couple of new templates or something?
Will you need to preregister some accounts to Level 1 beforehand? Otherwise the first 60 mins might be a bit quiet
Yes, I don’t know the exact specifics but I’m thinking we come with a few invite codes to get right into the meat of it. The idea is to first blow their mind with how simple it is to host a website on this SAFE thingy, then lure them into the forum and the nitty gritty
Even with invite codes they need to be Level 1 to create a SAFE account. Depends how hands-on the session is I suppose, but as it’s a Mozilla event I’d have thought a lot of people would turn up with their laptops prepared to join in.
I’ve got the framework working, so just need to hook up FUSE operations to the SAFE API, although that’s a decent amount of work as I’m building a JS layer to simplify the API at the same time. It is now at the stage where people could join in and help though, and if you wanted to demo the above this could be done as a shortcut.
