Connecting the Social Web with OStatus at Future of Web Apps in London
Sometimes late, but always on time, Future of Web Apps added me as a speaker this week to the Carsonified-powered Future of Web Apps London event. After some swapping my schedule around since I've been speaking about the Federated Social Web at Joi Ito and Digital Garage's New Context Conference in Tokyo, I'l be speaking mid-day in London about connecting the social web.
Londoners and others, I look forward to seeing you on Monday and early next week. Here is the summary about the event:
We don't think twice about calling a friend in London from another phone anywhere on the planet. Right now, you cannot make a status update in Twitter and have it automatically be received by another service like Facebook or Linked-In, without some magical API connection that is custom implemented by each service. This presentation discusses the OStatus standard - a protocol stack involving Salmon, Webfinger, ActivityStreams, and PubSubHubbub - that open source social messaging service StatusNet, the decentralized new kids on the block Diaspora, Google Buzz, Facebook and more are using now to build simple federated connectivity on the open web.
