Invited talk 5: Social Web Protocols and the Foundations of Trust
Speaker: Sandro Hawke (MIT)
The recently completed social web protocols (including ActivityStreams, ActivityPub, and WebSub) allow ordinary, websites to implement features traditionally seen in large social networking platforms. They do this by applying standard data-on-the-web technologies (eg JSON-LD and REST) to the domain of social interaction. This talk will explain the approach, recount highlights of the journey, and look forward toward next steps for social. We will also consider other areas where these techniques might be applied, especially Credibility. Participants are encouraged to try out the technology by getting an account at https://w3c.social.
