!tell snarfed skimmed OPD proposals, thinking seems pretty sound. Maybe drop 24h restriction for original posts found through existing algorithm (since those have bidirectional links incl rel-syndication link back to POSSE copy)
#

Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next

In other news, my website is now more ready to use Micropub
#
GWG
I still keep messing up my POSSE
#
GWG
I've had POSSE problems from Day 1 that I arrived here

#
tantek
GWG what's a recent specific example of a POSSE problem that you've had?
#
GWG
So, it doesn't matter what tool I use, either Bridgy Publish or a WordPress plugin...
#
GWG
Everything but manual POSSE, something goes wrong in one case or another.
#
GWG
I can't get it to distinguish different post types/kinds properly.
#
tantek
what do you mean by "it"?
#
tantek
I will say this, getting POSSE to work well across numerous possibilities has definitely been a lot of work! Especially to Twitter in particular, which is why this section is so long: http://indiewebcamp.com/Twitter#POSSE_to_Twitter
#
tantek
hmm - that post of yours is a very interesting example
#
tantek
it's commentary on a news article (on its own domain), including relevant quote in the reply-context citation. yet the commentary as written does not seem intended to show up as a comment on original article.

What is the difference between a reply and a comment?

It looks like we don't have a page for "difference between a reply and a comment" yet. Would you like to create it? http://indiewebcamp.com/s/102C

GWG, a reply is a post with its own permalink
dietrich joined the channel
#
tantek
a comment is a reply shown in the context of the original post, on the original post's permalink
#
tantek
hey I suppose I can define that though perhaps outside the window
#
tantek
The difference between a reply and a comment is that a [[reply]] is a post with its own permalink on its own permalink, whereas a [[comment]] is a reply shown in the context of the original post, on the original post's permalink.

GWG
So, when the intended audience are people following me, as opposed to the original article, what does that make it?
#
GWG
I have nomenclature issues as well.
#
GWG
So, here are two more.
#
GWG
These are more reply like, I suppose
#
GWG
Now I'm back to my crisis of faith when I couldn't decide if I wanted to favorite, like, or bookmark
#
tantek
GWG, I think you are breaking new ground with the combination of interesting post types and POSSE, perhaps that is why you are finding it challenging, you are doing things and combining things as others have not done before.
#
tantek
one example at a time
#
tantek
note that the "original post" article that you replied to / commented on, has a tweet "POSSE" copy itself: https://twitter.com/CBSNewYork/status/637400305257222144
#
@CBSNewYork
New Yorkers Are Getting Into Dining Solo As Long As You Mind Your Manners http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2015/08/28/dining-solo/
(twitter.com/_/status/637400305257222144)
#
tantek
GWG, does your reply UI on your site have a field for (optionaly) manually entering the tweet POSSE copy of the post you're replying to, so that you can do POSSE tweet threading?
#
tantek
that is, you could have POSSEd your reply to Twitter, with an in-reply-to-status-id of 637400305257222144, which would have threaded your POSSE copy with the POSSE copy of the original article!
#
tantek
This technique is described in more detail here: https://indiewebcamp.com/Twitter#POSSE_Replies_to_Twitter
#
GWG
tantek: No, it actually doesn't. I haven't gotten basic presentation on the silo down. Advanced presentation would be next
#
GWG
I hadn't even thought of threading yet, I admit
#
tantek
GWG, I (in Falcon) have a field for (optionally) manually entering the tweet POSSE copy of the post I'm replying to because my Falcon code is not yet smart enough to auto-populate it using rel-syndication from the original.
#
tantek
GWG, threading is essentially for when you want to reply to indieweb /note posts which themselves have tweet POSSE copies.
#
tantek
s/essentially/essential
#
Loqi
tantek meant to say: GWG, threading is essential for when you want to reply to indieweb /note posts which themselves have tweet POSSE copies.
#
GWG
tantek: It would be nice, I agree.
#
GWG
I just still can't get things to show the way I want, short of writing my own POSSE code
mblaney joined the channel
#
tantek
GWG, yes I found I had to write my own POSSE code, and that's why I documented all the different cases I had to figure out, on that section: http://indiewebcamp.com/Twitter#POSSE_to_Twitter
#
Loqi
mblaney: aaronpk left you a message 1 day, 2 hours ago: I fixed the IRC logs! the irc-people update script broke a few days ago http://indiewebcamp.com/irc/2015-08-29/line/1440832270546 http://indiewebcamp.com/irc/2015-08-29/line/1440889968461
#
tantek
perhaps I should try to package up just the Falcon code that I have that implements /Twitter#POSSE_to_Twitter , just to see if it would be helpful.
#
mblaney
woohoo! thanks aaronpk! :-)
#
GWG
tantek: I figured someone should have a library.
#
GWG
I've always hated the bloated nature of SNAP
#
GWG
Before you ask...
#
GWG
What is SNAP?
#
Loqi
SNAP is a POSSE plugin for WordPress and stands for Social Network Auto Poster https://indiewebcamp.com/SNAP
#
tantek
:)
#
mblaney
I saw an interesting comment about good UX when POSSE'ing to twitter a few days ago, can't remember where now.
#
mblaney
basically adding a link back when there's more to be read, but maybe leaving it off id there's no more?
#
mblaney
I think I'll adopt that technique for my posts (which now have a "send to twitter" option)
#
tantek
mblaney - yes, that's what I currently do, and recommend: http://indiewebcamp.com/permashortcitation#Why
#
tantek
There's definitely mixed opinions, so you're encouraged to try what you think is best, and document the results you get!
#
mblaney
oh nice, there's a whole section on it.
#
mblaney
I agree it's definitely subjective.
#
mblaney
My post options to add a title and send to twitter aren't mutually exclusive, so at least when just the title appears in a tweet I can add the link back then too.
#
tantek
exactly!
davidmead joined the channel
#
GWG
I just don't know what that would look like in my POST UI.
davidmead joined the channel
#
tantek
GWG, it's another one-line field, perhaps right above the "content" field where you type the post content
#
tantek
in reply to URL: [________________________________]
#
mblaney
hi GWG, my sympathies UI is hard. would much prefer just a text box for input if possible.
JasonO joined the channel
#
GWG
The code I use for rel-syndication URLs is a box with one URL per line
JasonO joined the channel
#
GWG
I came up with that so I wouldn't have to ever code for a new service. It will display anything as a rel-syndication or u-syndication that is in the box.

mblaney: I also have to deal with pre-existing UI

I still don't know what a response to an article is, where the audience is on my site, not theirs.
j12t joined the channel
#
tantek
GWG, I don't either - it's a very interesting post type!
#
tantek
closest is probably a bookmark
#
GWG
I have this intent issue with articles.
#
GWG
Some I post with no comment, some I post with a response. Some a comment on it for anyone who is following my feed.
#
GWG
I've had this problem from the beginning because I always found like a bit strong.
#
tantek
GWG, bookmark is like a neutral like
#
tantek
you can always bookmark something without any particular intent
#
GWG
then someone told me a bookmark could also be used for reading a book.
#
tantek
assuming you have URLs for the page#s :)
#
GWG
So, my replies should be bookmarks?
#
GWG
Now I have to figure out how to distinguish.
#
tantek
I think a reply has the intention that you are ok with / expect it to show up on the original article as a comment
#
GWG
tantek: I think I need to mark up a book differently than a URL link to the book
#
tantek
GWG, that is a reasonable argument
#
GWG
I think I should just post more
#
GWG
Maybe it is time for another part of my neverending travelogue
#
tantek
GWG, I appreciate your travelogues when I get a chance to check them. I too am trying to travelblog more.

voxpelli is there a fallback for the full page, for example on the body or html tag?

voxpelli
pfeffer__: that would probably be out of scope of the mf2-parsing
#
pfeffer__
voxpelli ok
#
voxpelli
pfeffer__: unless one would consider adding it as one has added "rel", but then there would be quite a bit of extra data that one might want to add – thinking this is to highlight exceptions

such as swedish posts on an english blog

ok here's some alternative thinking about /monoculture projects - what if we reached out (both passively and actively) to them stating a desire to federate with them? prioritize friendliest/smallest such projects first, most cynical/largest last, the assumption being that smaller projects have more incentive to federate, and it's always preferable to work with friendlier communities?
#
aaronpk
I think we've tried some of that in the past, even to the point of directly sending PRs
#
tantek
yes, we've tried some piecemeal minor efforts
#
aaronpk
I think we might need to be better about making the case about *why*
#
tantek
I'm talking about from the wiki on down
#
tantek
more of a holistic approach to showing a desire to federate with them
#
aaronpk
that'd be great

#

we shouldn't censor criticism (it's still there in a further down below section)

agreed.

however I wonder how much progress we could make by flipping the tone of the top of such pages

tantek
It's worth trying at least right?

Looks good
#

i have been slowly pokeing around at other potential candidates to federate with. I have been hoping that known and WP plugins would be enough interest to get a couple of smaller ones

Funny that both HipChat and Slack supports XMPP-clients and Slack also supports IRC-clients
#
aaronpk
why does slack get so much credit for being "open"? https://twitter.com/harper/status/638404606196715520
#
@harper
@FallenPegasus @HipChat @SlackHQ yep. Agree. I don't think slack is federated. Only that it is a tiny bit better than the status quo
(twitter.com/_/status/638404606196715520)
#
KevinMarks
because it has integrations and webhooks
#
aaronpk
so does hipchat
#
aaronpk
it's just shinier and new
#
voxpelli
one is enterprise, the other is human
#
KevinMarks
was hipchat irc originally?
#
KevinMarks
haven't used it
#
voxpelli
KevinMarks: I think hipchat is built on XMPP
#
voxpelli
while Slack is built on proprietary WebSockets (they do expose it as an API though)
#
KevinMarks
slack preserves the flavour of irc better, but removes a lot of the oddness
#
voxpelli
Slack also works _much_ better with mobile devices – hipchat doesn't work well there at all – especially not when one jumps between devices
#
aaronpk
my point was not which is better, but that slack is somehow getting credit for being more open/friendly despite it being a proprietary silo
#
GWG
aaronpk: They haven't shut the door yet
#
KartikPrabhu
don't most new shiny silos get that credit for a while
#
voxpelli
aaronpk: that is weird, but I guess – supporting both xmpp and irc clients means one can use ones typical open client to connect to them and then one personally doesn't notice that it's a silo
#
aaronpk
yeah but those gateways are always second class citizens compared to their native clients
tantek joined the channel
#
aaronpk
often missing lots of features
#
KevinMarks
I think it's more that slack brings the logged irc channel pattern that a lot of engs like to a wider audience, with a god mobile client
#
tantek
checks context
#
KevinMarks
it does come back to UX mattering
#
voxpelli
aaronpk: true, services like Grove.io and IRCCloud that offer hosting of real IRC-channels are the more truly open ones
nedorito joined the channel
#
aaronpk
I'm not even saying that IRC is the ultimate protocol and everyone should just build better IRC clients
#
aaronpk
it's just sad that building something like Slack in a way that can truly be federated does not seem to be a priority
#
voxpelli
that one didn't work well last time I tried it though :P
#
tantek
yes, more open is often a way of saying more accessible - more accessible to more people, more accessible on more devices etc.
#
aaronpk
haha yeah ngoldman works with me and maxogden visits the office now and then :)
#
tantek
the same way that the Mac is "more open" than Linux. The Mac is more open to more people being able to productively use it, as opposed to requiring users meet a bar of becoming a Linux sysadmin. Such high bars are barriers, and thus make something less open.
#
tantek
we have some of that same challenge here on the IndieWeb

that's a good definition of "open"

a good mobile experience is probably one of the key thing Slack nailed – that and gif:s, emojis and simple bots :)
#

aaronpk - it's merely broadening the consideration of what is considered "open"

#
voxpelli
notes, likes, rsvp:s, reposts, maybe even events
#
tantek
voxpelli: I don't understand the distinction then, as articles are presumably social because they can receive / show /comments /likes /reposts
#
tantek
and the whole point of a *shared* bookmark is to be social with it right? rather than just bookmarking it in your private browser?
#
voxpelli
tantek: my blog will still mainly be my blog so I will keep articles up front, add a new section for links – like adactio has – and a third section for everything else
#
voxpelli
"social" because most of the everything else will be Twitter-like stuff
#
tantek
voxpelli: I look forward to seeing your definitions evolve as you post more of this stuff on your own site first :)

so everyone can be social to me, but my social interactions to others will be kept in one place :)

#

but notes and events are more like articles, than they are like likes, reposts, RSVPs,
#
tantek
... tag-ofs
#
voxpelli
tantek: I have +10k tweets and 20-40 blog posts – but the latter has a longer lasting value than the former – so I want to keep them separate in the main UI (they are all part of the same full archive though)
#
tantek
voxpelli: my "tweet" frequency went way down after I started posting from my own site, mostly as a result of becoming more thoughtful with my writing just because it was starting on my own site.
#
tantek
which is why I said I look forward to seeing your definitions evolve as you post more of this stuff on your own site
#
tantek
and eventually my notes got longer and longer and started to resemble mini-articles without titles/names
#
tantek
now I post a wide spectrum of short notes, medium length notes, long notes, articles
#
tantek
much better than the false dichotomy of tweets vs. articles
#
voxpelli
I'm especially looking forward to upgrade my Pinboard/Instapaper use to some much more valuable sharing
#
voxpelli
still a work in progress though – not sure whether a "bookmark" or a "repost" is the best

I dunno but he still lists "microformats" as one of his projects in the sidebar of his site
#
tantek
I think that's due more to sidebar inertia than anything else at this point

perhaps a positive way to figure it out would be to encourage him to add microformats2 to his site :)
#
aaronpk
neat, he was experimenting with POSSEing to medium http://meyerweb.com/eric/thoughts/2015/07/30/medium-trials/
#

GWG, since you're our WordPress Outreach Club chairman, perhaps you could reach out to @meyerweb and let him know about all the awesome IndieWeb WordPress plugins there are (Eric Meyer runs WordPress on his site meyerweb.com)
#
tantek
heh, already documented aaronpk :) http://indiewebcamp.com/Medium#Eric_Meyer
#
aaronpk
oh nice
#
tantek
is he on the Slack?
#
aaronpk
I don't see him there
#
tantek
what's the name of his XOXO talk? or is he just listed as a speaker?
#
aaronpk
I don't think they've announced talk titles yet. might be announced today tho.

does anyone have a (physical) pin maker? I'd like to make pins like we did for IndieWebCamp NYC 2014

GWG, you really should reach out to @meyerweb on Twitter suggesting that he try out the IndieWeb WordPress plugins (feel free to cc: @t)
#
tantek
either he'll try them out and use them, or he will give you EXCELLENT feedback about challenges in their UX, and perhaps suggestions for improving them

@meyerweb Read your attempt to post to Medium. Have you tried any of the IndieWeb plugins for WordPress on your site?

I need to just emphasize this point from aaronpk: "Long URLs are not clickable since they wrap multiple terminal lines" http://aaronparecki.com/articles/2015/08/29/1/why-i-live-in-irc
#
tantek
what is URL design?
#
Loqi
URL design is the practice of deliberately designing URLs, in particular, permalinks, typically for a better UX for everyone who creates, reads, and shares content https://indiewebcamp.com/URL_design

aaronpk, have we discussed auto-embedding images/audio/video URLs in the logs?
#
aaronpk
not sure
#
tantek
what's the backend of the logs written in?
#
tantek
which autolinker are you using?
#
aaronpk
my only concern is making the page load super slow since there would be potentially a lot of images
#
aaronpk
i'm using my own autolinker, since it also has to match a bunch of custom stuff like the twitter lines and such
lukebrooker joined the channel
#
tantek
aaronpk - got it
#
tantek
in that case - could do client side auto-linking
#
tantek
er, auto-embedding
#
aaronpk
i'm still worried about autoembedding stuff on such long pages
#
tantek
if I've done my code right, you should be able to use cassis.js auto_link on the page on the client, and it should leave existing auto-links (from any source) alone
#
aaronpk
especially because the heights of the objects are all unknown, so if you wanted to quickly scroll to the bottom of the page you couldn't, because the bottom would keep getting pushed down farther as more stuff lodas
#
tantek
a-ha, interesting challenge for progressive enhancement
#
aaronpk
i would have no issue doing it on the single-line permalinks
#
tantek
yes! that would be a good incremental enhancement
#
tantek
if it helps, just copy/paste the relevant code from cassis.js autolink into your own auto-linker
#
tantek
the whole auto-link function is Apache licensed (since the regex I re-used and extended was Apache)

if I make my hovercard code more resilient, coudl add those too
#
tantek
can you make it as stylistically nice as Twitter or FB's hovercards?
#
KartikPrabhu
aaronpk: setting full height on Element 1 should do it (from what I've read of flexbox; never used it)

setting flex-direction: column seems to be the trick
#
KevinMarks
to do it in flexbox you would a vertical flex for 2,3 inside a horizontal flex with 1 in as well
#
KevinMarks
but if you make 1 fixed it is still going to be annoying on a mobile screen

tantek: not sure i have the design skills, but that was my initial goal
#
KevinMarks
we don't have a way to mark up header images
#
KevinMarks
which both of those rely on
#
tantek
KevinMarks - then for now just put in the IndieWebCamp logo as a default header image
#
tantek
as a placeholder in the design
#
KartikPrabhu
hovercards without header image are also fine
#
tantek
yes - simpler design is even better
#
KevinMarks
thats what i have now
#
KevinMarks
but they aren't greta yet
#
tantek
they feel like they take up too much space for the information they provide
#
tantek
Kevinmarks, at least mimic the minimal typography etc. that Twitter & FB hovercards have
#
KevinMarks
I should document them properly
#
KevinMarks
hm, where is the indie anywhere link on http://indiewebcamp.com/hovercard supposed to point?
#
KevinMarks
ah, 1st link works, nto 2nd one

Spotify is a playlist hosting silo and streaming music service https://indiewebcamp.com/Spotify

eh i'd give them the benefit of the doubt on that
