Book progress and interview

mathieudutour/medium-to-own-blog: Switch from Medium to your own blog in a few minutes

Following on from Stackbit’s tool, here’s another (more code-heavy) way of migrating from Ev’s blog to your own site.

Khoi Vinh on How His Blog Amplified His Work and Career – Own Your Content

It’s hard to overstate how important my blog has been, but if I were to try to distill it down into one word, it would be: “amplifier.”

Khoi talks about writing on his own website.

I personally can’t imagine handing over all of my labor to a centralized platform where it’s chopped up and shuffled together with content from countless other sources, only to be exploited at the current whims of the platform owners’ volatile business models.

Fraidycat looks great! Kicks Condor keeps doing really interesting projects and showing a side of the web I don't cross paths with often :-)
I'm going!

Looking forward to another weekend IndieWeb Meetup!

Join some fun folks and work on your personal website, whether it exists yet or not!

See y’all Sunday at 1pm at Think Coffee on 8th Ave at 14th St.

Open gardens

As I've embraced indie post types, such as reposts, I've noticed that actually I've been using them wrong. Looking at it appears I've been conflating a "retweet" on Twitter with a "repost", thinking they were the same. Alas, they are not, and it makes more sense to be a bookmark. I've since updated the posts using the wrong type and will get things right next time!

Private posts: the move of the checkins

@TrevorFSmith 1 year later notification from your like!
@Timoni #IndieWeb folks are building & using their sites as memexes, with unique personal features.
Twitter is not anyone’s memex but theirs; we POSSE copies there to invite others to explore ours.

I feel like the IndieWeb is a great example of commons-based peer production, as per Benkler’s definition:

radically decentralized, collaborative, and nonproprietary; based on sharing resources and outputs among widely distributed, loosely connected individuals who cooperate with each other without relying on either market signals or managerial commands.

Medium | Stackbit

This is very handy! Export your data from Ev’s blog and then import it into a static site generator of your choice.

You may have noticed the recent movement of people looking to get off Medium. Most of us are motivated by a desire to own our content, have data portability and get more control over how/where our content is displayed and monetized. Most importantly many of us consider our blog/site to be a core part of our online identity and while Medium offers a fantastic writing experience it sacrifices other important values. Luckily there’s a modern approach to running your blog which aligns with these ideals, its called the JAMstack and its all around us.

Designing in the open

Indie web events in Brighton

#indieweb #homebrew #website #club #brighton #indiewebcamp #events your understanding is correct. microformats2 (specifically for a ) would work well to mark-up such useful asides and other notes / comments regarding MDN pages, notifying those pages using Webmention, and handling them accordingly via moderation etc.

How those asides or notes are displayed on the MDN page is up to the design of the MDN page.

In addition Webmention also allows for easily submitting updates to such asides, notes, and comments and having them handled automatically for accepted submissions, or again via a moderation step.

None of these are “surely a good thing” if you look at them from the perspective of a user:
