Evening.

#
[kevinmarks]
I'm pondering AMP
#
GWG
[kevinmarks]: Have you been hanging out with Jeff Jarvis again?
#
[kevinmarks]
Suddenly struck that amp with microformats could be a good combination
#
[kevinmarks]
As amp is much less likely to be overdone with styles
#
GWG
Do you mean amp + microformats or an amp-like thing with microformats?
#
GWG
You'll have to elaborate.
#
[kevinmarks]
And that amp really needs a feed model
#
miklb
what is amp
#
Loqi
Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) is a Google-led project that speeds up a subset of HTML through caching and dependencies on google: https://indieweb.org/AMP
#
[kevinmarks]
I mean pole should bake microformats into their amp templates
#
GWG
pole?
#
[kevinmarks]
s/pole/people/
#
GWG
Oh, that makes more sense.
#
GWG
Got Proof of Concept?
#
GWG
My concern is still the JS hosted by Google.
#
[kevinmarks]
Well, the known ones have microformats
#
[kevinmarks]
I have an amp viewer hack

Hi, hello ... Is there a script to create a feed from all h-entry of a site ?
#
cweiske
there were two web applications for that
#
hs0ucy
cweiske: ok, thanks. And de the second one
#
hs0ucy
?
#
cweiske
no idea
#
cweiske
$searchengine is your friend

cweiske: all right :)

aaronpk
i have this weird idea for a new kind of post i want to make for my site, but not sure the best way to go about it, or whether there are other examples i can look at
#
GWG
aaronpk: Share with the group.
#
aaronpk
i want to make daily "roll-up" (or stats?) posts that show summaries of things about the day that don't otherwise fit into post-sized pieces
#
aaronpk
examples: number of steps walked today. list and amount of time spent in each project in my text editor. MB of cell data used.
#
petermolnar
sound like a cal for h-summary
#
aaronpk
i'm thinking about prototyping it in a super simple way, basically not adding any code to my site, and just posting them as HTML articles at first
shiflett joined the channel
#
GWG
aaronpk, would be interested to see a prototype even though I don't have such a thing on my horizon.
Pierre-O and [kevinmarks] joined the channel
#
[kevinmarks]
That does seem like a common type of post, though not sure what you'd call it
#
GWG
Summary Post?
goodoo joined the channel
#
aaronpk
Can you think of any silo examples of this?
#
GWG
I get summary emails on a weekly/monthly/etc basis from various sites. For example, I mentioned I installed Automatic in my car and now I get car usage summary emails.
#
@jimpick
@bmann @Stv This is the first one I will have been to, but I was at the Indieweb Summit a few months ago. I'm curious about the format.

#
aaronpk
Ah yeah they are more often seen as emails!
#
GWG
I remember seeing some WordPress plugins that would do a Twitter stat page every day/way.
#
[kevinmarks]
Round-up post? There have been things that do that for tweets or bookmarks for a while
#
hs0ucy
sknebel: thanks

[Aaron Parecki] Just set up a "like" button that works from any iOS app using the IFTTT "Do Note" app. I can "share" a URL from any app and turn it into a Micropub post via an IFTTT recipe.... https://aaronparecki.com/2016/08/10/10/share-from-twitter.png

wow - zero mentions of anyting IndieWeb related in that article

i'm also reading the thread Kevin started
#
aaronpk
why can't we just be friends
KevinMarks joined the channel
#
bear
seriously
#
aaronpk
i keep thinking about the chicken and the egg problem
#
aaronpk
in order to get this "adoption" everyone keeps talking about, it's ultimately going to take a company building a service with indieweb features
#
aaronpk
but right now, it's hard to justify doing that when there aren't enough other things to talk to at the scale that theoretical company would be operating at
#
bear
yea, it would have to be a grass roots service that then gets popular
#
aaronpk
part of me wonders if there's something around search that we could take advantage of
#
aaronpk
google has gotten so bad about blog search lately
#
aaronpk
and historically that was a major driver of "indie" things like having a website or adding microformats markup
#
bear
search + notifications maybe?
kbs joined the channel
#
aaronpk
superfeedr was in a good position for that, but now i don't know what the situation there is
#
miklb
seems bridgy would be the first thing that needs to scale
#
aaronpk
bridgy wouldn't be necessary if services supported webmention and microformats natively
#
aaronpk
the ultimate goal is to put bridgy out of business :P
#
miklb
somehow I don't see twitter implementing webmentions, but I'd love to be proven wrong
#
aaronpk
it's true, it's very unlikely. it would have to be something like a bunch of other webmention-supporting services suddenly got popular and twitter was forced to implement it otherwise the twitter users can't participate in the larger conversations
#
miklb
but if more platforms adopted, something like snippets.today could put Twitter out to pasture
#
miklb
though I still post more ephemeral stuff to Twitter that I don't post on my site even though I have the ability to

Do we need to build Technorati again?
#
aaronpk
that's kind of where i was going with that :)
#
aaronpk
this company seems to have done something like that already https://mention.com/

#
KevinMarks1
hm, that's annoying given I have mention.tech - they may get all trademarky
#
KevinMarks1
how is this different from datasift etc?
#
AngeloGladding
i see a personal crawler as a core necessity
#
KevinMarks1
I'm going to make a wikipage to fill in Anil's comparison chart - what should I call it?
#
aaronpk
datasift and the other one i forgot only talk to like twitter and facebook
#
aaronpk
at least mention.com crawls blogs
#
aaronpk
AngeloGladding: i totally agree. that's essentially the only way i read twitter now, i dont go to the home timeline. i would love to extend that idea to everyone's indieweb sites, but building a crawler is hard
#
AngeloGladding
i believe Python > PHP for such background purposes
#
aaronpk
eh it's not the language that makes it hard
#
aaronpk
i run plenty of background processes in PHP anyway
#
AngeloGladding
so you have a cron task run a PHP script?
#
aaronpk
i have a bunch of php scripts that get run at boot by the same OS mechanism that runs the web server etc
#
KevinMarks1
I wrote the technorati crawler using Twisted, and it was process-parallel
#
AngeloGladding
so you have a long-running PHP script?
#
aaronpk
several
#
AngeloGladding
Twisted was probably very well suited way back when
#
KevinMarks1
if you do it right you have a lot of things blocking on reads, so node could be a decent model too
#
AngeloGladding
Python has built-in asyncio nowadays
#
AngeloGladding
Guido (author of Python) wrote that
#
AngeloGladding
I was hitting all of your sites hourly about a week ago
#
AngeloGladding
sorry didn't respect robots yet..
#
AngeloGladding
integrating w/ webmentions will be a bit more complex but i think both are needed
#
AngeloGladding
@aaronpk what else did you crawl?
#
KevinMarks1
I was thinking a webmention sender like telegraph would go well with a crawler
#
KevinMarks1
as it fetches every target anyway
#
Loqi
[Aaron Parecki] Why I Live in IRC
#
KevinMarks1
every potential target
#
KevinMarks1
what is lost infrastructure?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "lost infrastructure" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
KevinMarks1
lost infrastructure is [https://medium.com/@anildash/the-lost-infrastructure-of-social-media-d2b95662ccd3 The Lost Infrastructure of Social Media] a silo post by Anil Dash calling for indieweb-like tech
#
KevinMarks1
maybe I can morph mention-tech into that
#
KevinMarks1
as it caches mentions anyway
#
KevinMarks1
wow, Anil's table is a bitmap
#
KevinMarks1
did you see Paul's article on AMP? https://trackchanges.postlight.com/were-bullish-on-amp-abfc6e1f10a1
#
AngeloGladding
aaronpk: well that's quite the approach w/ irc bots
#
AngeloGladding
you must have been the one to show me weehcat back in january
#
aaronpk
possibly!
#
aaronpk
i'm using weechat via a web interface now, it's even better
#
AngeloGladding
i suppose you can grep the logs and utilize all the standard unix flat file tools
#
aaronpk
yep, I do that often
#
AngeloGladding
but having the crawler parse structured content (microformats) and pushing that into a database for all kinds of output seems so much more robust
#
AngeloGladding
do you do that as well?
#
aaronpk
yeah, that's my ultimate goal
#
aaronpk
i'm getting there
#
AngeloGladding
i'm working on releasing my code and a one-click installer so i've halted feature dev for the last week or so
#
AngeloGladding
but i'm looking to websocket new crawler finds to my site as I use it
#
AngeloGladding
similar instaneity but keeps it in the browser
#
AngeloGladding
how do you use weechat in browser?
#
AngeloGladding
very interested in anyone's indieweb crawler dev.. e.g. decentralized technorati
#
AngeloGladding
gg get ready for HWC
