I was invited to consult a European research project called Eunomia. The project aims to implement a web of trust system for the spread of news in social networks, and I will be advising them on how their system can work with decentralized social networks, and Mastodon in particular. I'll also be doing community outreach, since at some point we'll need volunteers for trying it out.

The kick-off meeting is in January, in London. I bought the tickets today. Excited & equally terrified.

That's great! I'm already curious how it turns out. Keep us up to date pleeease😊

I'm not sure about the naming of the project though. Eunomia, the Goddess (central power) of law and legislation (censorship?). But that's probably kind of over-interpretation, let's wait for January. 🙂
