Someone said to me that I was "somebody who is responsible for stewarding the ActivityPub specification."
Let me be clear:
I am not associated with the W3C in any way, and had absolutely no hand in creating ActivityPub. Chris Webber and many others deserve that credit. Not me. Also, I don't attend the SocialCG meetings either (which are open to all).
I am not stewarding the specification.
- Built a library implementation in Go (there are other Go projects out there)
- Chirped up occasionally in the discourse
- Occasionally had voice chats / in-person meetings with people who have worked on the AP spec
- Make scarcely read, lengthy blog posts
I'm a bad "steward", especially compared to someone like nightpool who is a force in keeping the community moving forward and engaging with it.
@toast Maybe I put it too negatively, but I've valued their efforts at keeping the socialhub discourse forums active, where folks who want to evolve the AP standard congregate.
I'm just sitting here trying to get more people to adopt AP.
@toast Thanks! I really appreciate the positive sentiment.
