My name is Evan Prodromou. I'm an Open Source software enthusiast, best known for my work in wikis and in social software.
I work as Director of Open Technology at the Open Earth Foundation.
I live in Montreal, love to garden with native plants, make wine, cook, and live an examined life.
@evan this has to be one of the most under-stated introductions I have seen here!
StatusNet was the precursor of fedi.
Thank you @rysiek for correcting the record. I was in the room as #ActivityPub was matured and established as a #W3C standard. @evan was co-chair of that #SocialWebWG & co-editor of the spec. Plus, he may have brought @cwebber to the group, & perhaps others as well (Jessica Tallon?). (Apologies I don’t remember.) Instrumental effort, IOW! Not to mention his previous various contributions. And, he’s such a nice guy. Yay Evan!
404 ? No problem: it is in the Internet Archive https://web.archive.org/web/20110920072153/http://identi.ca/dennisjernberg
Wow, that's a lot of people with ancient identi.ca accounts in replies to this!
I wonder if it would be possible to make identi.ca an activitypub-compatible instance?
> Back in the day (a decade ago), he also used to run the biggest instance of #StatusNet, identi.ca.
@evan It's good to see you on here! I want to thank you for hosting me and all the rest of us over on identi.ca, and thank you for all your work on social media infrastructure. I hope you find it okay in here with us. o/
