skinny: tantek left you a message 2 days, 11 hours ago: see and read http://piedtype.com/2013/05/21/spammers-use-trackbacks-pingbacks-and-reblogs/ all the way through - including the blockquotes. This is why WordPress adoption is not the end-all be-all. Nor mass "adoption" in general. It's a misplaced desire.

skinny: tantek left you a message 2 days, 5 hours ago: thanks for the design/style feedback and suggestions. I've made most of the changes you suggested. Kept type slightly larger in a couple of cases, the better for mobile (without needing media queries). reload tantek.com

skinny: tantek left you a message 1 day, 9 hours ago: Looks like you haven't signed into IndieWebCamp.com since we switched over to IndieAuth - could you sign-in and create your user page (even with just your name and link to your site) so we can link you up on other pages?

tantek: have you seen how Disqus seems to use spammy tricks to hide advertisement from the site admin and display them to regular users? https://twitter.com/zedshaw almost all the 1st page.
#
neuro`
One more reason to host your comments.

franfran
hello all, I'd like to set something up on my website to participate in indieweb, I would also like to contribute to some open source software
#
JonathanNeal
aaronpk: that's a pretty web savvy coffee house.
#
JonathanNeal
And it's a Sunday.
#
franfran
I'd like to 1)have a blog 2) syndicate to twitter (although the other way around, would be fine by me too) I wouldn't mind being able to privately share some web stuff too
#
franfran
is ozten's innercircle a good choice?
snarfed and bnvk joined the channel
#
snarfed
franfran: are you more interested in writing code, or having something stable and easy to use?
#
snarfed
if the latter, try wordpress with the SemPress theme and pfefferle's webmention plugin
#
snarfed
you can syndicate to twitter with JetPack Publicize
#
snarfed
if you're more interested in writing code, take a look at the projects on http://indiewebcamp.com/ and jump into any of them!

aaronpk
really want to publish my travel plans for the next couple months. I'm thinking about making an "event" for each leg
#
aaronpk
some of them I would want to make private posts, you'd only be able to see them if you're logged in

#
barnabywalters
aaronpk: sounds good
#
barnabywalters
adactio was talking about implementing this on thesession.org
#
aaronpk
then I can make an .ical export from my data the same way I run my HTML through a microformats parser to have a .json extension
#
aaronpk
then I could add it to google calendar!
#
barnabywalters
paving the cowpath he noticed of people using the forum to say “I’m going to X on Y, what sessions/music stuff is around?”
#
barnabywalters
ooh that would be cool
#
aaronpk
I think I have some time today to hack on this. might go back to sisters coffee. (ping: bret)
#
aaronpk
is a flight an "event"?
#
barnabywalters
I’ve seen a bunch of people use the aeroplane unicode character between airport IDs to notate flights
#
barnabywalters
I think shaners does it sometimes?
#
aaronpk
oh yeah i've done that
#
ozten
franfram: innercircle doesn't syndicate to twitter
#
ozten
the main idea, is something more like a letter
#
ozten
you address a post to individuals
#
ozten
kind of a blog, kind of a shared personal space
#
ozten
but it supports webmentions
#
ozten
and needs a lot of work :) if you build on top of it, it would be fun to jam
#
ozten
notices franfran isn't in the channel
#
barnabywalters
ozten: webmentions for private content? how are you doing that?
#
barnabywalters
btw you can leave a !tell for them, e.g. !tell franfran blah blah blah
#
ozten
barnabywalters: I didn't know able tell, thanks! Is that IRC in general, or a bot that supports it?
#
barnabywalters
that’s Loqi being helpful
#
ozten
!tell: franfram: innercircle doesn't syndicate to twitte, the main idea, is something more like a letter. kind of a blog, kind of a shared personal space but it supports webmentions. Needs a lot of work if you build on top of it, it would be fun to jam
#
Loqi
Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next
#
ozten
barnabywalters: I think I've made the webmention posts public
bnvk joined the channel
#
ozten
you're right that the part where you check back would fail to see the content
#
barnabywalters
aaronpk came up with a spec for doing authenticated webmentions
#
ozten
interesting
#
ozten
thanks
#
aaronpk
ozten: would love some more people to test that with!
#
aaronpk
hm what happens if I create an event for a flight, and then change my travel itinerary?
#
aaronpk
guess we'll find out, since that's about to happen
#
aaronpk
also daylight savings time ends next sunday! prepare to have havoc wrought upon all your code that attempts to handle timezones properly :)
#
barnabywalters
aaronpk: my strategy of completely ignoring it has been working so far ;)
#
barnabywalters
goodnight all
#
Loqi
ciao

lawl. flights take place at two locations.

#
aaronpk
why does it always take so much time to research how to publish new stuff
josephboyle, lukebrooker, ozten and andreypopp joined the channel
#
aaronpk
man i've gone down a rabbit hole
#
aaronpk
now researching boarding pass redesigns http://passfail.squarespace.com/ and https://medium.com/design-ux/c72084d7793e to figure out how to display my flights
#
bret
aaronpk: would love to come but I'm in test grading purgatory right now :(
#
aaronpk
sadface
#
aaronpk
it's ok. i'm getting frustrated by any lack of guidance on how to publish my flight plans
#
bret
what do you mean? UI examples?
#
bret
hrmmm
#
aaronpk
I think I should quit and call it good
#
aaronpk
what more do you need?
#
bret
not sure
bnvk joined the channel
#
bret
a map and pins with hoverover info to display the data?
#
aaronpk
oh god maps
#
bret
maybe directional arrows
#
aaronpk
wasn't even thinking that
#
aaronpk
yeah that would be sweet
#
bret
you could put a flying loqi to approximate where you are on the map during the actual flight
#
Loqi
grins profusely
#
aaronpk
ok one thing at a time... I can't even figure out how best to put the damn dates on ther

#
aaronpk
oh god. I need to add support for different timezones for the start and end date to the date formatter https://github.com/indieweb/date-formatter-php
#
aaronpk
well at least that's easier than UI work :)
bnvk joined the channel

aaronpk
that wasn't too bad
