It’s been a bank holiday week, and it’s also half term here, so this will be shorter than usual ☀️
I’ve written the first of what will be monthly updates, wrapping up the key developments for the projects and delving a little deeper in to some performance metrics.

We had an early meeting with Sport England to discuss opportunities for our tech.
We also connected with a wide array of publishers (including Bloomsbury Publishing, Sage Publishing, NewsNow, Schibstead Media Group, NBCUniversal, Financial Times, Bicester Heritage, Conde Nast, Dennis and Immediate), many of whom we’ll be meeting in the coming weeks.
And we’ve also arranged a meeting with one of the largest automative properties for the week after next.
Plans have been put in place for Workflow Workshops. They are designed to provide both a free service to potential customers and as a legitimate conversation starter for new business opportunities. Each workshop is a targeted one-hour listening exercise, auditing workflow for a company’s digital product(s). The output is a recommendation on how this can be improved, in many cases using our technology.
The PPA site is looking awesome. Concept to beta inside of one month. The development pace that you can achieve on our stack is quite incredible…
It’s being handed over to the PPA on Monday, and should go live on the network towards the end of next week.
The network engineering team have been preparing for a major upgrade to mainnet, bringing a little over a month’s worth of development work to live.
The team have also been debugging issues with telemetry reporting, exposed while in testing on test.network
And they have been working on the network-sync service, which is now building automatically and logging device sessions. While it’s not yet ready for deployment, it’s laying the groundwork for a very important piece of the network reporting apparatus.
Work on the integration of Vault into Consul ACL is ongoing. This is a big update to the platform that will take a number of weeks to bear fruit.
Finally a few of us spent some time volunteering with the foundation in support of the development if their training programmes. If you haven’t pitched in yet, now is as good a time as any. Hit up firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Foundation team will be at Rightscon in Tunis in just over a week. If you’re going to be there and fancy a chat, please contact them to set up a meeting.
And that’s it from me for this week. Have a good weekend.
