I'm going!

IndieWeb-friendly personal sites can work together to provide all kinds of social features to the web. Likes, replies, bookmarks, GIF responses, reaction videos, and way more!

But should our sites do this? Recreating the dopamine-hit, engagement-maximizing, abuse-inviting patterns of the social silos is likely not the answer.

How can we make the web social while protecting one another?

Let’s start a conversation and find out in this IndieWebCamp Popup!

Stumbling – Lucy Bellwood

Our footpaths converged around the same 5-10 platforms, each with its own particular manner of communication. I have learned, unintentionally, to code switch every time I craft a new post. It’s exhausting, trying to keep track of all those unspoken rules shaped by years of use.

But I don’t have rules like that on my blog. I turned off stats. There are no comments. No likes.

Yesterday my repaired (and nicely cleaned up!) 7 year old Macbook Pro came back, and this morning the new Air intended as its replacement arrived as well. First I now will have to ‘move out’ of E’s Air I had on loan from her since Christmas, back to my old laptop, and then move from there to the new one. And of course then think of something useful to do with my old laptop, now it has regained a new life.

This is a RSS only posting for regular readers. Not secret, just unlisted. Comments / webmention / pingback all ok.

“In the case of Capsule, each content creator has their own website — has their own address, like Capsule.Greenwald.com — and then people go there and their first discovery of the mesh is through people that they’re interested in hearing from.”


I had to think about this for a bit, but I think I like this idea as an extension of the current IndieWeb ecosystem. Most people don't want to pay for a domain name or hosting, so I wonder whether Capsule can find a way to enable both groups to interact successfully.

The question for me is, will non-paying servers be able to operate as first class citizens in the federation, with a trusted identity? Will be interesting to watch development.

#indieweb is the best web

My new year's resolution is to read and respond to comments on my blog. Getting a bit hard to respond to every question on twitter, and I think this might be bit more manageable. conscienceandconsciousness.com

Week Notes 21#01

Tonight I've been investigating a few things for my #Postman API Hack and I've found that Postman's OAuth2 support is pretty awesome - it works very nicely with #Indieauth which is an important part of my hack 😉 I'm also pretty happy with what I'm planning on doing - hoping to get some good progress with the hack itself this weekend, too!

Robin Rendle › Newsletters

A rant from Robin. I share his frustration and agree with his observations.

I wonder how we can get the best of both worlds here: the ease of publishing newsletters, with all the beauty and archivability of websites.
