Dear W3C CCG and DIF I&D WG,

DWeb Camp is happening this year! August 24th-28th, at Camp Navarro, CA, USA:
https://dwebcamp.org/

Here is a description of its purpose and philosophy:

The goal of DWeb Camp is to create a collaborative space for people to
connect, learn, share, and have fun as we work towards building a
better, decentralized web. A web that actualizes the principles of
trust, human agency, mutual respect, and ecological awareness.
Registration is open: https://buytickets.at/gatheringsforgood/683906

At these events, many projects have been represented, such as SOLID, Matrix, IPFS, GUN, Secure Scuttlebutt, and LibreRouter. (A lot more than this, really)

In 2018, a CCG work item was represented, the BTCR DID Method (Christopher Allen, Kim Hamilton Duffy); as was DIF's Universal Resolver (Markus Sabadello):
