IndieAuth Spec Updates 2022 - Thursday Thu April 21, 2022

The week the open web won – Hi, I’m Heather Burns

So to me, this blog represents the original promise of the open web.

The one that’s here, and still is here, and always has been here, and is available to you.

Right now.

The one where you can speak the truths that you believe without the permission, or the editorial control, or the power dynamics, of anyone claiming to hold authority over you; or, perhaps, anyone keen to impose it.

Heather takes a break from her relentless crusading in favour of users against the idiocy of the UK government and reflects on the joy of doing it all from her own personal website.

And perhaps you should too, on your own blog, owned on your own hosting space, using your own words, and speaking your own truth. That sounds like a good little weekend project, don’t you think?

Bridgy stats update

A new CEO for Medium

My indieweb real estate website (part two)

It looks like Kittybox is close to its finish line and general protocol-compliance goal. The only unimplemented parts are:

  • In-house IndieAuth (auth and tokens)
  • Webmentions
  • WebSub pings

Then it will reach full protocol-compliance status, and I could go on to develop other things like pretty UI for posting, the Microsub server (because I really want my own!) etc.


Time to traumatize myself by implementing the entire IndieAuth spec by hand. The newest version that seems to be twice as complex as the one from three years ago.

I’m not sure if I should draft a will first, it seems overwhelming to me... (but I’m sure that in the event that I succeed, I will reap major rewards from it)

Here's a list of sites within the Fediverse that report supporting Webmention:

I'm not sure if Aaron Parecki has a public list of all the sites that are using webmention.io, but that would add a huge number as would all the native sites that are part of micro.blog. I'm not sure if either publishes a list of sites using their services for a variety of reasons.

The Message Behind the Medium of a Personal Blog - Jim Nielsen’s Blog

  • Each voice is individual and matters
  • Slow is ok
  • Diversified and independent is good
  • Not fitting a pattern is ok
  • Not being easily commodified is ok

This is very cool! Looks like I need to implement OpenID Connect for my #IndieAuth server so I can get in on this 👀

The @projectsigstore documentation has a new Gitsign section explaining everything you need to know to start signing your commits with an OpenID identity, such as your Gi...
@QwxleaA @ade_oshineye @houshuang In fact, here's a good example of one of @andy_matuschak's notes interacting directly via webmention to create bi-directional links (albeit just a notification in this case) with my notes. https://boffosocko.com/2021/07/03/differentiating-online-variations-of-the-commonplace-book-digital-gardens-wikis-zettlekasten-waste-books-florilegia-and-second-brains/#comment-368792
