@wjmaggos @tchambers Would this be possible with simple HTML sites? WordPress seems very dominant already?

I'm very happy for @pfefferle : he's been working tirelessly on lots of #IndieWeb and #Fediverse open-source software over many years. Now Automattic hired him to better integrate Wordpress with ActivityPub, and he got a Techcrunch article to boot!

@aswath : So you are proposing to 1) have a personal website #IndieWeb-style, and 2) use it to #IndieAuth into all #fediverse accounts you have on various Fediverse apps, and 3) somehow (rel=me, maybe?) claim ownership of all of them, so people can understand that's all you "elsewhere"?

What about people who don't have or don't want a personal website, for whatever reason?

(updated from my last intro)
New server, new #introduction

Hi, my name is Coby and I like to play videogames, make music and write words and code!

Non-coding stuff:
Lately I have been trying my hand at some casual #speedrunning of Metroid Dread and looking for other games to learn glitches for.
Sometimes I write about nothing in particular on my blog which you can find in my bio.

Coding stuff:
For work I am working on tools for decoupled #JavaScript / #TypeScript front ends for headless CMS solutions aka #Jamstack things. At home I have been working on #IndieWeb things like #Webmentions and a blog engine built on #Obsidian.

I went through a coding bootcamp in 2020 and I'm interested in helping underrepresented people get into the industry, please don't hesitate to reach out!

I feel all fuzzy seeing a younger generation embracing all the fun of making a Web 1.0 #neocities website and just completely geeking out over animated GIFs and stuff like I used to back in the day 😁 #yesterweb #retroweb #indieweb. The web was fun and not boring back then! I really miss that vibe.

I don't normally waste time thinking about Elon Musk, but when I read about Meta working on an ActivityPub-compatible social media network, I did, just for a brief moment, wonder whether it's finally dawning on him that Mastodon's not his real enemy.

That what he's up against is an idea, about a better web, free from people like him. Hm.

IndieWeb Plugin Testing and Suggestions Project

I am testing some IndieWeb plugins and finally decided on how I could go about this. I am going to get the description and all of the features. From there I will test the features if I can. I don’t use the classic theme, therefore there are a few things that I won’t be able to test.

Important question:
#msdos #tech #indieweb


Pretty sure this article made me get off my butt to build my current blog, and then researching led me to #Indieweb principles that I applied to the site.

I’m looking for the comic where on panel one a guy sets up his little house blog and invites people to visit and on the next panel he gets enticed to move by Facebook to this massive condo and gets his guests to visit there instead. Later, he gets locked out because Facebook took away his things and his visitors unless he pays to get a fraction of them back.

This gets posted often around here and I can’t find it. It’s a perfect illustration of what may happen with the Meta fediverse project.

IndieWebCamp Düsseldorf planning, federated formatting, and BlueSky’s beta is brewing. It’s your < 10min update on the #IndieWeb community!

On POSSE and IndieWeb via Joel Auterson. #IndieWeb

I should probably make some sequence diagrams. My setup is a bit of a Rube Goldberg machine, but it's surprisingly robust and really convenient to use. For example, sharing photos happens right in the iOS photos app because shortcuts integrates into sharesheets. #indieweb

I'm really enjoying my POSSE setup. I publish to my micropub endpoint using my own iOS shortcuts for photos or study sessions (as events). For plain notes and bookmarks I typically use Omnibear.

The micropub endpoint pushes to a repository on GitHub, and an Actions workflow picks them up and syndicates photos, notes, and bookmarks to Mastodon. The workflow is fast enough that stuff frequently reaches Mastodon before Netlify has finished building my site. #indieweb
