Puck is creating really flexible decentralized social media

Hi! I'm a 19yo dev whomst write cool things, and recently, I've been writing many different things, all orbiting around one theme: decentralized social media. Some things i've been working on recently:

Kroeg

Kroeg is a server implementing what I consider the smallest usable superset of ActivityPub (both the client and server-to-server api!). As of right now it is the only server that inherently supports all future extensions of ActivityPub and can also store any content accurately, no matter its origin, since it uses pure ActivityPub and JSON-LD internally. Contrary to what some people might think, this has resulted in one of the least vulnerable servers.

Security research

In doing all this work around writing an ActivityPub server, i've learned the ins and outs of most other fediverse software currently around, and realised that developers really don't spend enough time looking for issues in their own code. So far, my attempts to get other people to care about the security of a platform that 2.5 million users seem to trust ended up lackluster, which, unsurprisingly, is discouraging me from finding any further issues. And obviously, finding vulnerabilities in open source software doesn't really pay the bills...

The future

And while all this is going on, I have a few plans up my sleeve, including what i would consider the "next generation" of social media. One that allows migration, integrates with existing infrastructure and culture, and makes the final step in data ownership: from instance to the actual creator of the data! All this while keeping security and privacy!

By throwing money my way (by e.g. using this Patreon, for other ways feel free to ask me, just put https://puckipedia.com/ into your favorite fediverse client) you can help me improve the present, and future, of decentralized social media!
Tiers
🔏
$2 or more per month

By choosing this tier you indicate support for the security research I do, and I will do more of it in the future! Also you will get earlier access to any security related material (blog posts, etc) that I will release!


(no you will not get 0-days)

$2 or more per month

Selecting this indicates your support for Kroeg, my flexible ActivityPub server, and as such, will get special access for materials relating to it!

✨🔒✨
$2 or more per month

This pool helps me develop things that i think will change the way the fediverse works. You will be kept up to date and get early access to the magic currently in development that will make all the things tick!

Everything
$6 or more per month

You care about everything and, as such, get to see everything early-access!
