My keynote for ActivityPub Conference 2020 is now online a few days before the conference begins! Since it's a fully remote conference, the idea is you can (should?) watch the talks before the interactive/live sessions later this week.
Here's the keynote, which is about ways to provide value to users that CANNOT be re-centralized by the big corporations: https://conf.tube/videos/watch/b8d6c88a-0e73-46dd-9e35-d4645bb12db8
And all the other talks, which I'm excited to watch: https://conf.tube/video-channels/apconf_channel/videos
I reference OAuth a lot in my talk, and I can already tell that @aaronpk's discussion of OAuth 2.1 is going to be of interest to anyone who wants to develop the "suite of community apps" pattern from my presentation.
Evan's talk is a really good companion to mine, where he offers a lot of examples of apps that are missing from the ActivityPub ecosystem but also talks in more detail about some of the incentives that big corporations have to chase ("engagement", for example) that community-based social software providers simply do not.
