bret
shaners: are you doing a devlog of any kind?
#
shaners
bret: not really
#
Loqi
shaners: aaronpk left you a message on 9/23 at 9:32pm: why does the ruby mf2 parser parse the result using "_" in key names instead of "-"? example: (Microformats2.parse 'https://brid-gy.appspot.com/like/instagram/aaronpk/812343765104445747_1500881/1140655189').to_json
#
shaners
aaronpk: can you post a gist of that?
#
bret
shaners: not sure if I told you already, but congrats on jumping head first into some sweet projects!
#
shaners
bret: THANKS! I'm all in.
#
bret
lead the way!
#
shaners
there's lotsa ways ;)
#
bret
s/the/a
#
Loqi
bret meant to say: lead a way!
#
bret
it will be rad, we have transmat (js), known(php), and now homesteading (ruby) as seriously developed projects
#
shaners
s/developed/developing/
#
shaners
shit. doesn't work on others.
#
bret
err ya
#
bret
that
#
shaners
but yeah. i'm stoked about our community progress
#
KartikPrabhu
shaners: I see that you have a different app for each type of post. is that the sort of modularisation you were recommending a while back?
#
shaners
we've always believed that these ideas and technologies need to be exercised by multiple implementations. and we're geting closer to realizing that.
#
KartikPrabhu
also really like the Homesteading logo :)
#
bret
maybe its just my filter bubble, but lots of people really seem eager to judge ello against everything they hate about facebook. a really good sign for alt projects
#
shaners
KartikPrabhu: Yes-ish. I'm not necessarily reccomending it, but we're certainly trying it out. I belive in it, at least.
#
shaners
bret++
#
Loqi
bret has 28 karma
#
KartikPrabhu
the advantage seems to be that people can install only the type of events they want
#
shaners
KartikPrabhu: thanks. that's prolly just a temporary logo. i spend all of 30 minutes coming up with that.
#
parzzix
Good evening everyone
#
shaners
we'll do a real identity / brand effort when we're more ready for people to start installing
#
KartikPrabhu
re: logo: maybe a dash of colour might be good, but I like the geometic pattern
#
KartikPrabhu
also homesteading is a very apt name
#
KartikPrabhu
instead of doing some "clever" pun
#
parzzix
transmat is new?
#
KartikPrabhu
what is transmat?
#
KartikPrabhu
boop ^ no has been around for quite a while
#
shaners
KartikPrabhu: that's exactly the idea of the constellation model. you could install our events app alongside of known or whatever. or run just the hs-article app on your own site. or only the photo app if they're photographers, without all of the other post types. or whatever.
#
KartikPrabhu
ooo homestead-events with Known! that seems like magic :P
#
shaners
KartikPrabhu: I can't stand clever names. I *love* literal names.
#
KartikPrabhu
literal and metaphors (like homesteading) are very neat IMO. no interpretation needed
#
shaners
i'm glad you like it
#
parzzix
transmat looks real nice..reminds me a of ghost a little.
#
bret
the js mf tools are top notch thanks to Glen
#
shaners
parzzix: you can ask Loqi questions and Loqi will try to answer it with the wiki. For example,
#
shaners
What is transmat?
#
shaners
Shit. I thought transmat would have a better answer.
#
shaners
I didn't read your thread very well. :|
#
bret
ill fix it
#
shaners
what is homesteading?
#
Loqi
Homesteading is a personal publishing platform project (created with Ruby on Rails) where the creator owns the content and can syndicate copies to third parties http://indiewebcamp.com/Homesteading
#
shaners
That's what I was hoping for.
#
shaners
go get 'em, bret!

Transmat is the software I have written to power for my personal site http://glennjones.net http://indiewebcamp.com/transmat
#
bret
meh...
#
KartikPrabhu
bret: good workaround. hopefully untimately it will get its own page and not a redirect
#
acegiak
kylewm: im in the process of converting all the posts in my favourite things list to use the favourites kind and metadata
#
bret
sounds tedious
#
KartikPrabhu
homesteading++ wow one-click to deploy to Heroku! nice
#
Loqi
homesteading has 1 karma
#
shaners
KartikPrabhu thanks. but it's very not ready for general use yet. namely, auth is implemented at all.
#
parzzix
cool thanks shaners
#
shaners
which means you can create/edit/delete in development only. but in production it's read only.
#
shaners
and there's no real docs around usage or installing
#
KartikPrabhu
shaners: better than nothing, and I'm sure you are working on those :)
#
shaners
you know it
#
KartikPrabhu
indieweb seems to be close to ready for some beta-level attention at least. Having multiple apps would be great
#
bret
KartikPrabhu/kylewm
#
bret
ooops
#
bret
KartikPrabhu/kylewm how different are the redwind and parallel transport projects?
#
KartikPrabhu
bret: very as far as I see. (must open source Bundle soon). Redwind is Flask based and Bundle is Django based
KevinMarks_ joined the channel
#
bret
django is pretty sweet, first time that I have been using a framework like it
#
KartikPrabhu
yeah it is quite developed. lets you do the useful things :)
#
KartikPrabhu
kylewm: and I use a lot of common python packages though. Like mf2py and mf2uitls
#
KartikPrabhu
is wondering if parts of Bundle and Red Wind can be abstracted out so others can combine them in useful ways
#
kylewm
KartikPrabhu: do you use one or more of bear's libraries?
#
KartikPrabhu
yeah I use ronkyuu
#
KartikPrabhu
might look at Ninka to do indieauth too
#
bear
i'm willing to work on anything that helps create python libs to be useful for others
tantek joined the channel
#
KartikPrabhu
bear: indieauth is a good start. the whole auth process takes a while to digest
#
kylewm
I would like to see what it would take to migrate my stuff over to ronkyuu and hopefully contribute back usefully
#
bear
ya, ninka is the bits I had to reference when I was adding /login to my site
#
KartikPrabhu
kylewm: having multiple projects is good though. even if they do the same things
#
bear
yep - I would gladly borrow any ideas you come up while working on your own ;)
#
KartikPrabhu
kylewm: for instance if one could abstract away Red Wind's storage and Flask interface, I would totally steal your Address Book :)
#
KartikPrabhu
shaners' idea of modularising code looks very useful for things like this
#
kylewm
KartikPrabhu: funny, i'm just working on the /contacts page today
#
kylewm
née addressbook
#
bear
oh boy would I love to see some flask examples on how to do contacts
#
bear
hmm, need to eat
#
KartikPrabhu
heats up the cheese mound locally known as lasagna
#
KartikPrabhu
thinks that the address book model could be nicely adapted to a "following" list
#
tantek
good afternoon #indiewebcamp!
#
KartikPrabhu
hi tantek
KevinMarks_ joined the channel
#
tantek
I'm making a few FAQ edits
brianloveswords joined the channel
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: should there be a general FAQ on the homepage? with links to other FAQs perhaps?
#
KartikPrabhu
in the sidebar
#
tantek
maybe?
#
tantek
i'm editing /faq now, almost done
#
KartikPrabhu
feels it might be good for beginners to browse through and get a general feel instead of looking at seemingly abstract principles and so on
#
tantek
interesting, prompt them to learn by presenting the (obvious) questions they might be thinking but not expressing
#
KartikPrabhu
also useful for people in the IRC-dark timezones
shaners joined the channel
#
KartikPrabhu
one faq also is "is there a video/article explaining the indieweb" looking for instances in log
scor joined the channel
#
kylewm
my $0.02, the homepage is already a little overwhelming
#
KartikPrabhu
kylewm: hence a link to /faq in the sidebar suggestion
#
kylewm
+1 for sidebar
#
tantek
this is a good intuitive suggestion, I often find myself looking for an FAQ for a site in their sidebar or footer
#
tantek
in order to get a quick overview of what the people running the site care about
#
KartikPrabhu
yeah. intuitive for sure. no data
#
tantek
in our case, s/people running the site care/community cares
#
KartikPrabhu
might also help people understand if "indieweb" is a solution they want/need

KartikPrabhu, kylewm do you think FAQ is important enough to put first under "Resources" in the sidebar? Or do you have another suggested spot in the sidebar?
#

good evening, tantek

edited /FAQ (+62) "/* Why can no one make something consumer friendly */ see also Who are we making software for"

#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: depends on who the homepage is catering to. if beginners then I would put all the beginner-centric ones on top like "FAQ", "Principles" "get started" and then the rest
#
tantek
good evening shaners
#
KartikPrabhu
fails to search logs for people asking for articles explaining the indieweb
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: consider ordering them in terms of maximum chance of getting them to start *doing* rather than just reading
#
tantek
what is the minimum a new person needs to read/see before they're convinced to just get started?
#
kylewm
intuitively I would expect it near the bottom
#
tantek
thanks kylewm
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: same in that case. FAQ makes deciding whether to have indieweb, Principles introduces the core philosophy, Get Started well gets them started
#
tantek
kylewm: near projects / CC0? before which of those?
#
kylewm
tantek: I was thinking right below projects
#
kylewm
hmm, I could also argue for above projects

I think above projects :)

#
tantek
kylewm, shaners, appreciate feedback on /SGTM /LGTM :)
#
kylewm
I was going to use full names for everyone but then it felt really weird to call bear anything else
#
tantek
kylewm: I believe you can do that automatically by what data you have in the h-card for each person
#
shaners
in some cirlces SGB and SGS are also used to mean "seems good, bro" and "seems good, sis", respectively. though, i don't think that's worth adding to the iwc wiki.
#
tantek
shaners - indeed, not worth adding, because "in some circles" is a third party detached reference.
#
tantek
like "some say"
#
tantek
such phrases can be a linguistic dark pattern: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weasel_word
#
kylewm
tantek: I don't think I understood your point about h-cards
#
tantek
kylewm: sorry I left the thought half-complete
#
kylewm
what I want is to type @t and have it auto-linked to tantek.com
#
KartikPrabhu
kylewm: if the h-card has a p-nickname use that else use full name
#
tantek
thanks KartikPrabhu :)
#
GWG
kylewm: I like the look.
#
kylewm
bad news bear.im doesn't have a p-nickname
#
kylewm
(sorry couldn't resist lame movie reference)
#
KartikPrabhu
kylewm: you could add it yourself when you add that person to your address book no?
#
@jeremyzilar
â–“ @thomyorke of @radiohead just released his latest album, "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes" on BitTorrent — http://www.radiohead.com/deadairspace/tomorrows-modern-boxes #indieweb
(twtr.io/rCSX9cqcnm)
#
KartikPrabhu
indieweb should really engage artists who want to go indie... Warren Ellis is a great example.
#
tantek
kylewm: that may be just due to insufficient advice about h-card publishing
#
shaners
tantek: i'll try again. some of my (ruby) friends use sgb/sgs. i sometimes catch myself saying it outside of those friends. sgb/sgs mean roughly the same thing as SGTM/LGTM.
KevinMarks_ joined the channel
#
tantek
based on my experience, bear would prefer to be called "bear", yet that's not indicated anywhere visible (nevermind marked up) on https://bear.im/
#
kylewm
(thanks GWG)
#
tantek
before jumping to markup, perhaps we can state that this is something your /homepage should say
#
tantek
even just in prose
#
tantek
once we have visible prose examples, from those we can determine what markup makes sense
#
tantek
UI first as it were
#
tantek
shaners, interesting. I'll listen/look for those uses.
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: kylewm: true. use homepage h-card p-nickname if there is one, else the address book author could add one themselves for personal reference... ?
#
tantek
if such phrases start to get used here in #indiewebcamp, we can add them as well
#
kylewm
actually, the irc log is a really good reference for what i want
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: SGB ;)
#
tantek
s/start to get used/start to get used unironically ( :P )
#
Loqi
tantek meant to say: if such phrases start to get used unironically ( :P ) here in #indiewebcamp, we can add them as well
#
KartikPrabhu
kylewm: unlikely that I'll have a nickname in my h-card since I have never had one
#
tantek
looks at bear.im's invisible side files for additional clues
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu, absent a nickname, use "name" (full name, fn)
#
KartikPrabhu
yup. but if kylewm wants to locally store it as "inmateoftheasylum" I don't mind ;)
#
kylewm
so absent a p-nickname, do you think it would be nicer to convert @t to a real h-card with [pic]Tantek Çelik
#
KartikPrabhu
was just thinking that ^
#
tantek
kylewm - yes, and I think that's the same conclusion we came to the last time we discussed this which may have been 2011
#
tantek
which led to aaronpk's implementation of this
#
kylewm
I think people are fairly used to the strange formality of that on Facebook
#
tantek
this = automatically using full name of someone on indie posts, and translating to @-references on Twitter POSSE copies
#
kylewm
but I notice aaronpk has since stopped?
#
tantek
in response to typing (authoring) any of say @t, @tantek.com, Tantek
#
tantek
has he?
#
tantek
it only does that for names in his nickname-cache
KevinMarks__ joined the channel
#
tantek
!tell aaronpk why doesn't http://aaronparecki.com/notes/2014/09/11/1/ use users.txt? what happened to displaying icon+name on indie posts vs. tweet posse copies?
#
Loqi
Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next
#
kylewm
perhaps it is different with notes and articles
#
tantek
kylewm: possibly. I think barnaby does it for all though
#
Loqi
aaronpk: tantek left you a message 3 minutes ago: why doesn't http://aaronparecki.com/notes/2014/09/11/1/ use users.txt? what happened to displaying icon+name on indie posts vs. tweet posse copies?
Erkan_Yilmaz joined the channel
#
aaronpk
It uses users.txt to link @t to Tantek.con
#
aaronpk
I stopped doing the full name and photo in notes a long time ago because I want notes to preserve the original text I enter
#
tantek
that's a fascinating design decision from experience that's worth documenting/capturing somewhere! perhaps on /p3k ?
#
KartikPrabhu
why not store both the original note.txt and a parsed version note.html?
#
KartikPrabhu
only the txt need be copied and so on. the html can be generated by code again. HTMl as cache ?
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: that's what I do. I write/store "text" for my notes, and then generate the HTML dynamically using CASSIS auto_link
#
tantek
no caching. haven't needed it yet for perf reasons, ergo.
#
KartikPrabhu
me too. plain text notes ( but in a DB field :( ) and generate dynamically on post fetch

#
kylewm
all right, have another question. it's clear there was some discussion of /pubsub a while back
#
kylewm
i don't quite understand why the "ideal" solution involves a hub
#
kylewm
why can shrewdness not subscribe to get a webhook callback from me whenever i publish an update?
#
tantek
kylewm: it can, you can be your own hub
#
KartikPrabhu
kylewm: do you want to keep a record of all the people subscribing to you and send a PUSH to all of them on publishing a new post?
#
kylewm
so when shrewdness subscribes to my site, it goes through whichever hub i specify, not necessarily superfeedr?
#
tantek
kylewm: I believe a design goal of PuSH was modularity to help support small sites.
#
tantek
kylewm: correct
#
kylewm
ok interesting
#
kylewm
KartikPrabhu: I would be happy to :P
#
KartikPrabhu
hmm... usually feed reading is anonymous... i feel it would be better that way
#
KartikPrabhu
guessing. don't know enough details of PuSH
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: it's a trade-off. It's more work (coding, admin) to run your own hub, and yet, as you observed, you have much more data about your subscribers, which otherwise is bottled up in the hub.
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: i am wondering if subscribers would want that. In anycase, they have the choice to just poll my h-feed as they please so might not be an issue.
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: that's right - a PuSH *client* has to make that explicit policy decision / trade-off.
#
KartikPrabhu
nods. fair enough
#
kylewm
interesting conversation on twitter about this yetserday https://twitter.com/evanpro/status/515598700916539393

@evanpro
@dakami @kevinmarks @kragen @gojomo So two people establish a connection, one friend wants to view other's profile without server logs?

@evanpro
@gojomo @dakami @kevinmarks @kragen So you're saying people prefer turning over their personal data to a proven unreliable third party...

@evanpro
@gojomo @dakami @kevinmarks @kragen ...because they don't want their friends to know they've looked at their profile? C'mon.

#

ah, hypothetical use-cases discussed on a silo.
KevinMarks__ joined the channel
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: related perhaps but different. The presumption that a "full" Indiewebstack is even defined is pretty funny :)
#
kylewm
I enjoyed evan's debunking the use case :)
#
KartikPrabhu
isn't Known such a thing? not a full stack but...
#
tantek
Known is perhaps the leading more broadly usable implementation of IndieMark features/levels.
#
tantek
kylewm: I don't understand why evanpro doesn't POSSE his replies from his own site (instead of silo-posting).
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: yeah I think people mean an "install and go" solution
#
tantek
what is install and go?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "install and go" yet. Would you like to create it? http://indiewebcamp.com/wiki/index.php?action=edit&title=install+and+go
#
kylewm
tantek the pump.io -> twitter bridge was always buggy in my experience... there was a while where his posts would show up on twitter DAYS later
#
tantek
kylewm - and this is a key reason why I don't take pump.io that seriously (yet). evan hasn't been able to get it to the point where it *replaces* his own use of Twitter.
#
tantek
whereas the number of us here who *have* replaced Twitter with our own sites & implementations continue to grow.
#
tantek
at a minimum for posting notes, and most of us that do that also post *replies* on our own site first, and POSSE thread/copy to twitter
#
kylewm
I read this quote from him the other day (documented on /pump.io) "I really want pump.io to become one of those essential pieces of infrastructure for development"
#
kylewm
it's just a whole different goal/mindset I think
#
tantek
kylewm that sounds like an instance of http://indiewebcamp.com/antipatterns#mass_adoption
#
kylewm
it's interesting right? because the cited examples memcached and rabbitmq were created to solve a specific problem that someone had and happened to be generally useful
#
kylewm
not "this will only be useful once everyone adopts it"
#
tantek
kylewm: I believe all such "essential pieces of infrastructure" are "created to solve a specific problem that someone had and happened to be generally useful."
#
kylewm
I think you're right
#
GWG

GWG
tantek, I'm still not at that level.
#
tantek
which level?
#
GWG
I just built reply and realized I haven't figured out what to reply to

tantek
a "reply-to" URL text field is a common minimal viable UI for that

#
GWG
How would I get the post into Wordpress
#
kylewm
like in the New post UI, where you added the in-reply-to field, why can't you read querystring params and pre-populate fields?
#
GWG
kylewm: The closest to that is the Press This option, which is not extensible, as far as I know
#
GWG
That is why the REST API is the better long term solution. I could use your post interface and send the data directly into Wordpress without touching Admin.
#
KartikPrabhu
moar APIs
#
GWG
Moar?
#
kylewm
ohhh I see, you mean JSON API for micropub
#
GWG
kylewm: No. I'd want it for implementing the creation of the endpoints you identified as well.
#
GWG
No point in writing something using XMLRPC, which is the best available right now other than the new stuff.
#
kylewm
ok, gotcha
#
kylewm
same concept, different plumbing :)
#
GWG
kylewm: Yes.

#
acegiak
just catching up from the hilight on whisperfollow earlier
#
shaners
build a little interface for setting: author name, author url, flickr username, etc. then pull those values in your markups to at render time. boom bam boom.
#
GWG
acegiak: It gives me a conflict with Semantic Linkbacks, by the way
#
acegiak
whisperfollow? yeah. that's an issue I'm trying to work out
#
acegiak
the problem is they're both loading the mf2 library from their own locations
#
GWG
acegiak: I see that. I was going to ask you if you had a solution before I fiddled with it
#
KartikPrabhu
acegiak: GWG: use something like if !mf2-library then load mf2-library no?
#
KartikPrabhu
if you put that in both it should work ?
#
acegiak
KartikPrabhu: I'll have to do it in both but I haven't got that to work yet

what is redwind?
#
Loqi
Red Wind (source code) is Kyle Mahan's IndieWeb-ready blog software written in Python and running on Flask http://indiewebcamp.com/redwind

ok so both have this for loading the mf2 library:

require_once 'Mf2/Parser.php';

acegiak
still throwing errors :S

ok I'll do a commit on both in two minutes, GWG
#

aaronpk: did you ever gist me that Ruby mf2 to_json dump?
#
GWG
acegiak: I have a question for you though.
#
GWG
acegiak: You used the JSON API for Whisperfollow. I'm just starting to play with it. Other than adding the response data to the return, what other functions does it make sense to implement?

GWG
acegiak: So do I. I'm using Image, Video, Standard, Aside, and Status Update. Quote and Link were unnecessary after the plugin was activated.
#
GWG
acegiak: The only different I have between an Aside and a Status Update is the styling.
#
KartikPrabhu
GWG: curious. what do you post as an aside?
#
acegiak
KartikPrabhu: I know imdb is a private enterprise but somehow it seems more official than last.fm? maybe I should just rock with last.fm though

#
GWG
KartikPrabhu: Aside is a style. I define it as no displayed title, larger font.
#
acegiak
KartikPrabhu: the problem is I don't trust last.fm but they're the only ones compreshensive enough and I DO scrobble to them
#
GWG
And a Status Update is an aside with a profile picture.
#
KartikPrabhu
"Aside" has somewhat of a diminutive connotation compared to notes though
#
acegiak
KartikPrabhu: yeah but it's baked into wordpress

and on a third topic, back to webmention and spam - the more I think about it the more I keep coming back to trying a 3rd parameter, a URL, that "vouches" for the source.
#
tantek
i.e. if A is sending a webmention to B (who don't know each other, i.e. B has never linked to A), A sends along a third parameter, let's say "voucher=" (new name please) that includes a URL to C, which has a link to A (thus "vouching"), and B *has* linked to C in the past.
#
tantek
this way you push the work of 2nd degree trust discovery onto the *sender* of the webmention, rather than the receiver
#
bear.im
created /Rackspace (+416) "rackspace stub"
(view diff)
#
tantek
this is merely a brainstorm at this point, however I plan on implementing it along with my webmention implementation
#
bear
that could with with a FOAF style signing
#
bear
I have you listed as a trusted source and in my list I included your auth token
#
tantek
bear - not sure that adds anything or is necessary. I'd like to build the simple thing first. before seeing if anything was/is necessary
#
tantek
also nothing based on invisible data (FOAF) should be used as a basis for anything
#
tantek
if you were to say visible XFN blogroll OTOH, then we might have a start
#
bear
thought that was simple
#
tantek
bear, nothing about FOAF is simple, nor is anything about "signing" simple
#
bear
yea, foaf was just a keyword to shortcut me having to explain a visible way of linking two trusted sources
#
tantek
and lastly, no matter how simple, anything *additional* should be avoided until there is a use-case that deems it necessary
#
tantek
following YAGNI principles
#
tantek
foaf has too much bag baggage to be a generic shortcut any more
#
bear
sure, but you said trust
#
bear
and that implies discovery and verification
#
tantek
trust means different things to different people
#
tantek
but you're right, I misspoke and used a loaded term
#
bear
if I want to accept webmentions because they include a marker from you - trust only has one meaning
#
tantek
so instead:
#
tantek
this way you push the work of 2nd degree link discovery onto the *sender* of the webmention, rather than the receiver
#
tantek
there, much simpler :)
#
bear
will wait for tantek to rediscover third party signing
#
bear
not saying that in any mean or bad way - sorry if it came across that way
#
bear
I am looking forward to seeing what flows you come up with
#
tantek
bear, is the signing necessary when a simple link will do?
#
tantek
a-ha! "what flows you come up with" <-- that is the right question. :)
#
bear
unless that link points to something I as the receiver can verify that both the sender and the person asking to vouch are who they say they are
#
tantek
you don't need identity, just a link from/to
#
tantek
as in , B->vouchlink->A
#
bear
in this realm a link within the domain space of a person *is* identity
#
tantek
it is, however there is no need for "who they say they are"
#
bear
if your sending a webmention to kevin with my link as a vouch it should be in the bear.im domain space
#
tantek
this is for the spam problem, not the spoofing problem
#
tantek
the spoofing problem is a separate problem and can happen independent of any spam problem
#
tantek
as has been demonstrated
#
tantek
when you say "my link as a vouch" that is redundant with "in the bear.im domain space"
#
tantek
the vouchlink can be *anything* that B links to, where the vouchlink *also* links to A
#
bear
is struggling with not going a layer deeper because crypto
#
tantek
does not matter who - i.e. I said nothing about the person
#
tantek
it's just a URL, that you retrieve, and check for links from
#
tantek
no crypto needed
#
tantek
or rather if you're worried about site-spoofing then the answer is /https
#
tantek
again, orthogonal
#
bear
i'm seeing what your describing... still have some concerns - but again, we need an implementation so we can discuss concrete points
#
bear
yea, https does solve the issue I was noodling over above
#
bear
yep - ok, looking forward to implementing your flow

looking forward to documenting it ;)

the way people share links informally in all sorts of ways

in addition, since such social questions are of interest beyond commenting (as evidence by FB and other silo's showing how many friends in common you have and who they are), there's likely to be one or more aggregators that surface this information in some queryable way

in which case, as a user, after commenting (and presumably having their "normal" webmention rejected), they could check a hypothetical service like socialsearchme.com for themselves, see that they'd linked to B, and then see how many (if any) people they have in common, especially, if there are any people that B has linked to that link to A, and if so, presto, that's a "vouch" URL.

I don't think it will be hard per se

since they are one direction and if the domain uses https, authenticated
#
KartikPrabhu
no it will be very hard for me to send a webmention to someone. If I want to send a mention to bear for the first time, I have to somehow get a list of people who have mentioned bear before (don't know how to do that spider all of bear's post comments?), and have previously mentioned me (spider my list of received mentions) and then create a voucher URL on match
#
bear
I don't think that is it
#
bear
you send a webmention to me along with a list of people who are vouching for you
#
bear
and if I trust that list, then I auto-add it

bear
"list of people" == urls
#
KartikPrabhu
bear: urls == url of someone else linking to me?

someone who is in your list of people who vouch for you

so if I was sending a webmention to tantek, I would give webmention info + url of my vouched-for list which would include you

2. KartikPrabhu "how do I know if the voucher I received is legit." you have to do 2 (relatively) simple checks. continued: "don't I have to verify that there is a link between sender and voucher" - in one direction only, that voucher URL links to sender's personal domain. that's the easy check. the harder check is you have verify that YOU link somewhere to voucher's personal domain (e.g. from your blogroll, whitelist, Twitter

tantek
followings, nicknames cache, outbound link cache)
ShaneHudson joined the channel
#
tantek
3. KartikPrabhu " but anyone can send me a webmention with voucher = kylewm, should I just trust that they know you?". No, no notion of "trust" needed. Just links. You MUST verify that "kylewm" (presumably a permalink at his site) links to the sender. continued: "or do I go fishing in your friendslist to verify it?" No. There is no need to crawl anywhere from the voucher URL.

7. KartikPrabhu: " If I want to send a mention to bear for the first time, I have to somehow get…" No let me stop you right there. The vouch protocol is a backwards compatible extension to webmmention. Step 1, you send a webmention as if you would today. Step 2. Perhaps the receiver is already a fan of yours (secretly, in their private whitelist, nicknames cache, etc.) and thus your webmention is accepted without any additional wor

what is vouch?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "vouch" yet. Would you like to create it? http://indiewebcamp.com/wiki/index.php?action=edit&title=vouch
#
tantek
barnabywalters: right, I decided to bounce it off people in the channel first
#
barnabywalters
tantek: sounds like the vouch protocol is a useful extension for webmention
#
barnabywalters
makes perfect sense as part of a layered anti-spam, anti-abuse system
#
barnabywalters
it’s another data point for webmention endpoints/proxies to take into account
#
barnabywalters
e.g. a social graph crawling webmention proxy could, on an incoming webmention, go:
#
barnabywalters
1) is the sender in my social graph? if so accept, otherwise:
#
tantek
7.. continued: Step 3, if for any reason the receiver of your webmention does not want to accept it, e.g. they've never linked to you before (or you're not in their private whitelist, nicknames cache, Twitter followings - per rel-me consolidation identity equivalency etc.), the receiver rejects your webmention with a 400.
#
barnabywalters
2) have they sent a vouch parameter? if so, check it, accept. otherwise:
#
barnabywalters
3) have they sent a hashcash parameter? if so, accept, otherwise:
#
barnabywalters
5) last resort: add to a manual moderation list
#
tantek
7.. continued: Step 4, at this point you may decide to send a webmention+vouch, in which case it is up to you, the sender of the webmention to find such a vouch URL and include it as the 3rd parameter in your resend of the webmention.
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: yeah Step4 is not so easy now is it?
#
tantek
barnabywalters: I'm not convinced about hashcash - spammers have shown they're willing to spend non-trivial resources sending spam.
#
KartikPrabhu
in fact at that point I would just think, "ok rejected moiving on"
#
tantek
I would actually dump a webmention after vouch failing and leave it to the person to attempt a sideband communication (e.g. saying hi here in IRC)
#
barnabywalters
tantek: given that no-one’s actually implemented any of this yet, I’d be willing to actually try it out and see what happens in real life
#
tantek
or perhaps have them attempt a mention through Bridgy, POSSE copy to POSSE copy
#
tantek
which raises the bar again, as they have to put their POSSE profile at risk, which a real person is willing to do, but not many spammers are (and it raises the cost for them)
#
barnabywalters
but of course everyone could choose what works for them — another advantage to the many-layered approach
#
tantek
barnabywalters: yes, everyone can try what works for them - I'm merely indicating a minimum viable vouch approach.
#
KevinMarks
vouch can apply to a shared membership too? Eg irc-people or hwc, or xoxo?

tantek
continuing in order

KevinMarks

that was 8… responding to barnabywalters re: 1…5 steps, summary: only 1..2 are necessary for minimum viable vouch implementation.
#
tantek
9. KartikPrabhu re: "Step4 [up to sender of the webmention to find a vouch URL] is not so easy now is it?" Unknown. For most conversations, e.g. people here in #indiewebcamp, I expect it will be trivial for you to find a URL just by checking the home page of the person you're trying to send a webmention to.

10. KartikPrabhu: "in fact at that point I would just think, ok rejected moiving on" - for that reason it may be worth introducing a new explicit error value: "needs vouch". The closest HTTP status/error code for this is 412 Precondition Failed - the precondition being - the request lacked a "vouch" parameter.

tantek
11. KevinMarks "vouch can apply to a shared membership too? Eg irc-people or hwc, or xoxo?" A vouch URL could be for example http://indiewebcamp.com/User:Kevinmarks.com, which obviously links to the domain(s) (known.)kevinmarks.com, and thus vouches for any permalinks at those domains. Then the receiver of the webmention has to decide, have I linked to indiewebcamp.com before (likely yes), ok I'll accept that site as a voucher, and
#
tantek
the specific vouch URL, and thus the webmention.
#
tantek
12. KartikPrabhu "I am still confused as to how to find a vouch URL to send?" If you're already a reader of B's content (which you should be, since you're sending them a comment on one of their permalinks), then you should already be somewhat familiar with who they link to (or can quickly check their home page or recent posts for people). You should also be relatively familiar with who links to you (hint: your recent incoming webment
#
tantek
to *your* site).
#
KartikPrabhu
yeah so that makes the whole thing manual. no auto-sending mentions
#
tantek
12. … thus with a quick look at B's home page (or recent posts) you should be able to trivially recognize oh hey there's someone that sent me a webmention recently, and go pull that out of *your* queue/history of recent webmentions, thus giving you vouch URL to use.
#
KartikPrabhu
this is making it too much work for sending...
#
KartikPrabhu
comapre to replying on Twitter
#
tantek
13. KevinMarks "So the vouch is a sponsor?" No, the vouch is not a "sponsor" or any other new term. The vouch is *just* a (perma)link, which B has linked to the domain of previously, and which directly links to A's domain.
#
barnabywalters
kartikprabhu: I don’t know if that’s true. You’re asking a) for human attention and b) for the reciever to put your content on their site. Both non-trivial requests

KartikPrabhu
barnabywalters: same with twitter replies. they show up below my tweet
#
tantek
14. KartikPrabhu "so that makes the whole thing manual. no auto-sending mentions". Not true. For example see 11 - it is likely your code can programmatically itself test indiewebcamp.com/irc-people and use it as a default vouch.
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: again people I already know is not the issue
#
KevinMarks
Twitter replies have a show all/show those from people I follow toggle
#
tantek
14.. continued: from there, you can decide how much intermediate UI you want to show, "The comment you sent is awaiting some form of vouching that they link to that links to you" with a URL field to enter. Plenty of opportunity to crawl, cache, innovate there. PLENTY.

KevinMarks: those are only show/hide. when I send a reply, i don't get "oops go find someone you both know"

15. KartikPrabhu "this is making it too much work for sending…" maybe. won't know until I (or others) attempt to implement and see what roadblocks we run into.

that doesn't make sense

kartikprabhu: twitter has a huge shared spam list (and it’s worth noting that even that is often not successful)
#
KevinMarks
How you respond to webmentions is already up to you

16. KartikPrabhu "compare to replying on Twitter" - compare to replying on Twitter to someone who has blocked you. Compare the noise of @-replies on Twitter to *any* permalink from *any* celebrity. All filled with crap. Often worse than YouTube comments.
#
KevinMarks
This is a way to change default processing

16… continued - Twitter is a lost cause in terms of reply quality. Nevermind the nonsensical twitter arguments/fights that otherwise intelligent people get into.

17. KevinMarks "Twitter replies have a show all/show those from people I follow toggle" I see no such toggle, neither on my tweet permalinks, nor on others. For an example of poor conversation, e.g. see replies here: https://twitter.com/WhiteHouse/status/516248523096866816

in this vouch model an interaction like this: https://twitter.com/kartik_prabhu/status/516168689549193217 would never happen. I don't know any one who know Erik Spiekermann

KartikPrabhu: in general my goal with "vouch" (seriously, feel free to suggest a better name) was something *easy* for the *receiver* to process. Putting more burden on the sender IMO is the right principle/approach given how *less* burden on the sender turned out for email/trackback/pingback.
#
barnabywalters
kartikprabhu: so you could choose to put that webmention in a human moderation queue (as per my flow above)
#
barnabywalters
I see things like this as ways of automating moderation, with actual moderation as a last-resort fallback
#
KartikPrabhu
barnabywalters: one could do human moderation without this vouch thingy too
#
KartikPrabhu
i don't know what the vouch model adds
#
tantek
I'm determined to build a system (at least for myself) with zero moderation tax.
#
tantek
I don't have time nor inclination to read through all the crap that gets stuck in moderation - from experience moderating comments on microformats.org.
#
barnabywalters
kartikprabhu: of course, things like vouch, hashcash, social graph crawling etc. remove the need for vast amounts of moderation
#
tantek
you may choose to do so yourself, but it should be a choice. I shouldn't *have to* moderate.
#
barnabywalters
leaving the rest to do manually, or ignore
#
barnabywalters
human moderation with some spam prevention is the existing status quo (see: wordpress)
#
barnabywalters
all of these other spam prevention/blacklisting etc. ideas simply layer on top of the existing methods, making them less and less work
#
barnabywalters
it’s progressive enhancement of comment moderation
#
KartikPrabhu
do people go back and see if their comment was accepted by moderator?
#
ben_thatmust
well at some point someone has to say yes or no, it can't be all automated
#
barnabywalters
kartikprabhu: I believe aaronpk has implemented async webmentions, with a status page which indicates the status of acceptance
#
ben_thatmust
i think the goal is to make that as minimal as possible for those that choose to moderate.
#
KartikPrabhu
yes, but does anyone go back to see the result of moderation, even in traditional comment forms?
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: I don't understand what your example of https://twitter.com/kartik_prabhu/status/516168689549193217 demonstrates. I

#

see that you mentioned *his twitter* and linked to *vimeo* - neither of which accept webmentions.
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: if Erik had said "i don't know you, go find someone to vouch for you before I read your tweet" what would I do?
#
ben_thatmust
barnabywalters, kartikprabhu, I implemented a status of acceptance in the webmention receivers on openblog i just never turned on moderation (or had a UI) in theory its the exact same its just automatically setting to accept now
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: this is not webmention specific. just some interaction that would fail if it happened through webmention+vouch model
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: that thing I said before about using POSSE copy to POSSE copy threading to bootstrap
#
tantek
just as we have use POSSE/Bridgy to bootstrap interactions with people stuck on silos
#
tantek
we can use silo's own weaker mention policies to bootstrap into our indieweb 2nd degree
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: no. assume that this was not happening on Twitter but on indiewebsites.
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: yes that's my point. assume that it's happening on indieweb sites
#
tantek
and that you're both POSSEing to Twitter
#
KevinMarks
This is a solution to the sea lion problem
#
tantek
and that you're both supporting rel=syndication (including discovery), and original post discovery
#

what is the sea lion problem?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "the sea lion problem" yet. Would you like to create it? http://indiewebcamp.com/wiki/index.php?action=edit&title=the+sea+lion+problem
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu, your indieweb post webmention to his webmention post *fails* because he doesn't know you, HOWEVER
#
KartikPrabhu
so what's the point? if my mention goes through Twitter anyway
#
tantek
your indieweb post's POSSE tweet copy @-mentions his Twitter profile, through which he he does original post discovery on your post and then can add it that way.
#
KartikPrabhu
I'll just go an interact with him on Twitter then.
#
tantek
the point is that Twitter becomes just an ephemeral step in indieweb to indieweb mention recognition
#
tantek
purely mechanically
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: why is going through Twitter more legit than sending a webmention?
#
tantek
your site automatically POSSEs, his site automatically does original post discovery
#
tantek
rather than "just go an interact with him on Twitter"
#
KartikPrabhu
so POSSE becomes more mandatory
#
tantek
no, fallbck
#
tantek
as they are already today
#
KartikPrabhu
what if I don't POSSE
#
tantek
because not everyone has their own network
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: irrelevant - you do POSSE.
#
KartikPrabhu
you are saying, even if 2 people have indiewebsites for some intereactions they need to have silo accounts and POSSE to them
#
tantek
we can ignore worrying about such "what ifs" until we have real world implementations and real world comments to test.
#
KartikPrabhu
this whole spam is not real world yet
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: it is, my webmentions queued in webmention.io are filled with spam
#
tantek
due to Twitter spammers @-replying me
gr0k joined the channel
#
KartikPrabhu
well so going throiugh Twitter did not help either then :P
#
tantek
so I personally (itch) have no choice here - I *have to* solve the webmention spam problem before I can even deploy it :/
#
tantek
no "either then" - different scenario
#
KartikPrabhu
so you will filter out any Twitter @-mention from people you don't know
#
tantek
first scenario was indieweb->POSSE copy->POSSE copy->Indieweb
#
tantek
this second scenario is purely indieweb->POSSE copy->silo reply

don't conflate them
#
gRegor`
KevinMarks: That is hilarious. Love it.
#
KartikPrabhu
not conflating. vouch model makes both of these very complicated to handle
#
tantek
I still don't understand *what* in particular you think is "complicated"
#
tantek
pretty sure I've explained simply how to implement receiving vouches
#
tantek
and sending vouches depends merely on the human/UI of picking a vouch URL
#
tantek
which I think is a reasonable burden to place on a sender
#
tantek
especially since for now, we're small enough as a community that anyone can add themselves to indiewebcamp.com/irc-people
#
tantek
that's not complicated
#
tantek
nor hard
#
KartikPrabhu
<shrug> if you don't mind many people not doing the second step even if their comment is legit, then its fine
#
KartikPrabhu
I wouldn't bother for instance
#
tantek
sure, adoption (by both sides) is an unkown
#
tantek
you wouldn't bother checking for vouch or sending vouch?
#
gRegor`
So if A mentions B, and B says "I need a vouch", but you have no vouch in common with B, you use the POSSE copy as a fallback, correct?
#
KartikPrabhu
gRegor`: who uses POSSE fallback?
#
tantek
gRegor`: I'm fairly disbelieving in "you have no vouch in common with B", I bet you could even crowd source it here in the channel
#
KevinMarks
Would your twitter followings be an implicit vouch for webmentions POSSEd by bridgy?
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: hence I gave the Spiekermann example.
#
tantek
KevinMarks: you could choose to treat them that way. that's one of the methods I mentioned above.

tantek: Someone sets up a withknown.com site and we have no interactions or mutual friends. Seems it could become pretty common.
#
tantek
gRegor`: I am going to predict that the first widescale webmention spammer we are going to see will be from a withknown site.
#
KartikPrabhu
this is all fine and good, if you already are in the same extended circle
#
gRegor`
KartikPrabhu: By "POSSE fallback" I mean since B won't get your webmention, they will see your POSSE copy mention instead. I'm not sure I'm full understanding this vouching conversation though, so just asking questions.
#
KartikPrabhu
gRegor`: but they don't know me on twitter either but they accept Twitter copy.... this seems weird
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: another way of putting this is that vouch URL discovery (finding vouch URLs between you and some other person) will be a source of a lot of innovation, search, crawling, indexing, caching etc.
#
KartikPrabhu
that is what I don't understand
#
tantek
and that's a *good thing*
#
gRegor`
Unless they're private or have you blocked on twitter, there is no "accepting" you. They just get a mention, plain and simple.
#
tantek
right, maybe they're ok with the silo profiles being more spammy
#
tantek
than their own personal site
#
tantek
that's fine, we aim for higher quality on the indieweb
#
tantek
if spammers resort to only using silos, then we've won
andys joined the channel
#
gRegor`
So if my understanding so far is correct, in that situation, how do A and B get to a point where the webmention can be sent and vouched? Will B have to manually add A to his approved senders / nickname cache / whatever first?
#
tantek
gRegor`: that's part of the beauty of it - that's up to B to decide, thus making it opaque to spammers, thus making any generic/global approach not scale, thus making it uneconomical to spam.

gRegor`

tantek: Out of curiosity, is a lot of your webmention.io junk from people mis-typing a twitter name? I know @justin gets a lot of mis-addressed tweets like "@justin bieber" heh
#
tantek
gRegor`: no bridgy doesn't send those.
#
tantek
only @-replies to actual tweets
#
tantek
which have a in_reply_to_status_id set on them
#
gRegor`
Ah, right
#
KevinMarks
That is a big defect in twitter
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: btw, when people don't have webmentions show up (due to any kind of rejection) they will do what they do today
#
tantek
they come here to IRC
#
KevinMarks
(twitter as it is now)
#
tantek
and say hey I tried webmentioning so and so
#
tantek
did you get my webmention?
#
tantek
the last fallback will be human-to-human, actual social networking
#
tantek
which is just fine
#
gRegor`
I will be interested in seeing vouching implemented. I think it will help me understand it better.
#
KartikPrabhu
heh most Known signees aren't even on the IRC, i doubt more people will be
#
@samusclone
ello implemented the ability to reply to someone BEFORE implementing blocking, which is a fun "how to tell men designed this" game
(twtr.io/r9UTBYzfJ8)
#
KartikPrabhu
stays out of the "men did this" game
#
gRegor`
Heh, yeah. Not sure most withknown.com users know what webmention is, or that they can comment on other non-known, non-silo sites. E.g. this thread with my firend Scott https://twitter.com/gRegorLove/status/512650030184804352
#
@gRegorLove
@itsscottwilder If you have @withknown set up, try posting a status in reply to http://gregorlove.com/2014/02/1180/ and it will show up there. #indieweb

wrt blocking, I’m a little stumped as to how to implement it effectively in shrewdness
#

I have some Ello invites, by the way, if anyone would like to check it out.
#
KartikPrabhu
gRegor`: yup. so if webmention is rejected people will ask here is not right
#

(Scott's reply to my note up there was "really?")
#
barnabywalters
hiding anything matching a domain or domain+path is easy enough, but what about other cases like POSSE copies and reposts on other sites
#
barnabywalters
or, for example, people quoting blocked people’s content without linking to it in e.g. u-in-reply-to
#
barnabywalters
if I block troll.com, should a post from one of my friends which links to troll.com be shown?
