Thinking more about the health/activity data problem, I stumbled upon this: http://www.openmhealth.org
#
aaronpk
well that's a start
#
[cleverdevil]
Now, I'm trying to remember who had said they were interesting in collaborating on the iOS side of this...
#
aaronpk
we have log search!
#
[cleverdevil]
I'm thinking the right solution is to make the iOS app just basically collect *all of the data* and POST it up as JSON to a webservice
#
[cleverdevil]
Then, make the webservice be like OwnYourHealth, or something like that.
#
[cleverdevil]
Where you can toggle on which types of information you want to publish to your site and on what schedule.
#
[cleverdevil]
Keep the smarts out of the iOS app, because that's much harder to work with than a web service.
#
[cleverdevil]
I should really put this on the wiki
#
[cleverdevil]
What is health?
#
Loqi
Health is an iOS app from Apple that allows users to track data collected by HealthKit, which includes things like sleep tracking, heart rate, steps, exercises, and more, which are collected via the Apple Watch and the iPhone https://indieweb.org/Health
#
[cleverdevil]
What is Granola?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "Granola" yet. Would you like to create it?
[mko] joined the channel
#
[mko]
cleverdevil: I'd be down to help out a bit on that, though I'm not sure how much time I'll have. They used to have an App called Hipbone powered by Granola that backed the Health data up in Dropbox, but it stopped working for me a while back. https://hipboneapp.com/
#
[cleverdevil]
Granola is an [[iOS]] library for serializing your [[HealthKit]] data into [[JSON]] in a well-defined format called [[Open mHealth Schemas]].
#
[cleverdevil]
What is Open mHealth Schemas?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "Open mHealth Schemas" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
[cleverdevil]
Open mHealth Schemas is a set of standardized [[JSON]] schemas for health-related data, and can be found at http://www.openmhealth.org/documentation/#/schema-docs/schema-library
#
[cleverdevil]
Okay, I updated /Health with some ideas.
#
[cleverdevil]
mko awesome, I'll check it out.
#
[cleverdevil]
They also have something that can take data in from Fitbit, Google Fit, RunKeeper, Withings, and more, and serialize it to their format.
#
[cleverdevil]
So, building the webservice to use their schema seems like a decent idea.
#
[mko]
Yeah. I used their schemas for a while, but they're a little over-opinionated for my tastes at times.
#
[cleverdevil]
(Pretty old/stale though)
#
[mko]
I do think that they'll provide a good base for the schemas. I asked myself how would I convert them to a reliable Microformat when I embed a given Health record on my site, and they don't map 1:1 for how I would want to represent the data myself.
#
[cleverdevil]
This might all be too complicated, FWIW.
#
[mko]
I really like https://www.humanapi.co/ for health data structuring, personally
#
[mko]
Their "wellness" data API is very similar to how I already had my data modeled in my local datastore: https://reference.humanapi.co/#wellness-api
#
[mko]
Yeah. HumanAPI is one of my favorite med health companies right now
#
[cleverdevil]
What is HumanAPI?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "HumanAPI" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
[cleverdevil]
HumanAPI is a platform for real-time access to digital, structured health and medical data, including from mobile devices and apps.
#
[cleverdevil]
It looks like they run a whole API service already for storing/retrieving the data
#
[cleverdevil]
This seems like a much faster path...
#
[cleverdevil]
Yeah, this is pretty great.
#
aaronpk
it's like Bridgy Pro for health data
#
[cleverdevil]
They already have an iOS app
#
[cleverdevil]
and you can pull everything in HealthKit in and send it to their repository/API
#
[cleverdevil]
It would be much more straightforward to leverage this.
#
[cleverdevil]
Okay I'm out for the day but this is promising :)

#

deathrow1: awesome and welcome! (despite the ominous /nick!)
#
tantek
deathrow1 you are officially assigned responsibility for taking a photo of the HWC Berlin group
#
deathrow1
tantek: i'll officially delegate it then — have no (reliably) working camera =)
#
tantek
no "smart phone" even?
#
deathrow1
tantek: didn't you also pick a nickname in the 90s? ;)
#
tantek
deathrow1: you can do photo art direction
#
tantek
tries to recall 90s nicknames
#
deathrow1
tantek: yeah, no "smart" smart phone. have one i found in a dumpster, with cyanogenmod, which keeps crashing when taking photos. can't tell if it's the battery or bad drivers.
#
deathrow1
is a gamer badass coming back from the 1990s to frag everyone

tantek: will see. once had my camera stolen while backpacking (presumably) by germans who thought i was invading their privacy taking pictures which included shared friends and them. (they were later sneering, saying stuff like "maybe you shouldn't take so many pictures.") ze germans are pretty strict about their photo rules; stopped messing with them.
#
tantek
wow what
#
deathrow1
tantek: you should try your approach at german hacker meeetings, like congress
#
tantek
given how many security cams are all over the place, if people are going to be that physical about photos, they ought to wear a mask :P
#
tantek
deathrow1: the right answer of course is to make it explicitly optional to be *in* the photo
#
tantek
we have had HWC SF meetings where 1-2 people ask to not be in the photo and we always respect that
#
deathrow1
tantek: for sure, especially in germany and in privacy-aware groups, but that's not how cameras worked before the days of facebook (oh, happy days)

I just finished setting up oAuth on it along with the ability to post to my own personal site and crosspost into it.

It feels almost dirty to say, but I now officially "own my own silo". At least one can export their data....

not only can you submit top-level posts, but if you replied to a post, you could also syndicate your reply to indienews and it would appear under the parent post
#

aaronpk: I don't remember comment threading... that's cool.
#
aaronpk
it was a while ago. i built indienews in 2013 initially, just barely after we had webmention
#
[cleverdevil]
So, I kind of think something that would be useful for brainstorming would be helpful.
#
[cleverdevil]
Though, maybe the wiki and this channel are enough?
#
tantek
cleverdevil, yeah that's the idea, chat+wiki
#
tantek
chat for rapid brainstorming (which frankly beats ALL email / forum / etc. software) for speed and brevity
#
tantek
and then if an idea is worthy of capturing, wiki
#
aaronpk
Salt: I don't have any major sponsors this year yet, so I don't have a fund to draw from for the local events. you're welcome to raise your own sponsorship, or you can point people at the wiki sponsorship page and I can handle the bookkeeping and such, and reimburse you guys for expenses.
#
aaronpk
maybe this is a good topic for the #meta channel heh
#
[chrisaldrich]
cleverdevil the chat is also logged and searchable https://indiechat.search.cweiske.de/
#
[cleverdevil]
I still think a Known instance would be better at some things, but I also like that we've got something already working ?
#
tantek
my experience is the email/forums become slow/long/overworded piles of unmaintained meh
#
Salt
aaronpk, I've got a sponsor, they want to know where to send money
#
[cleverdevil]
Yeah, mine too, but I've been exploring some interesting projects related that I think may change that.
#
tantek
they're slow to use, so people take more time to write to amortize the overhead of using their UI, then discussions get laborious so people get distracted, tl;dr etc.
#
[cleverdevil]
Or at least have the potential to.
#
tantek
cleverdevil, speed / low latency is the key
#
aaronpk
Salt: awesome. there are details in the PDF and at the bottom of the page here https://indieweb.org/how-to-sponsor

#
[cleverdevil]
The WP thing is this: https://geto2.com
#
[cleverdevil]
Its interesting.
#
Salt
aaronpk, so we should just handle things locally and send excess to you post-event for bookeeping?
#
aaronpk
that'd work too if you don't mind handling the money
#
aaronpk
we're not a 501c3 so there isn't any tax benefit to having the money go through me

so that's something to consider too

Agreed about low latency and low overhead, but it is more difficult when time zones and diurnal rhythms isolate you. That's why asynchronous can be worthwhile.

I don't know. Kevinmarks mentioned him in a tweet stream last week: https://twitter.com/kevinmarks/status/849043081840250881 so perhaps he knows?

@BrendanEich @ckhonson @brave If you're building things into the browser, how about webmention and micropub?

notes that Eich's browser offers infogalactic as a `search engine`
#
tantek
what is infogalactic
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "infogalactic" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
GWG
If I add IndieNews to a plugin that is called Bridgy Publish, is that confusing?
#
snarfed
probably yes, since bridgy and indienews are unrelated
#
GWG
snarfed, submissions work the same way. I can't change the slug, but what would I call the plugin then?
#
[chrisaldrich]
GWG: if you do add IndieNews, perhaps add it in commented out code, requiring a snippet of knowledge to be able to uncover the checkbox. I suspect the Gen2+ users who have it in Bridgy Publish won't understand what it is/what it's for and will spam the site accidentally trying to figure it out.

Easter Egg?

GWG
Or maybe I should call mine afikomen?
#
snarfed
easter eggs can be fun, but probably not appropriate for actual functionality
#
GWG
I suppose I could create another plugin, but it seems like duplication.
#
GWG
Oh well, I will think about it more
#
[chrisaldrich]
I kind of like the manual nature of markup to post to news.indieweb to remind me what it was like back in the day...
#
GWG
When you had to walk five miles through the snow barefoot to mention something?
#
[chrisaldrich]
And I had to fend off the bears with my hand-lettered and mimeographed Zine.
#
GWG
I didn't even have a zine. I had to write my mentions in a notebook and read them in the town green on a soapbox.
#
tantek
that's genius. next time a bunch of us are in London let's hold a HWC in Hyde Park and bring our own literal soapboxes with our domain names written down on them, and just read posts out loud from our home pages
#
GWG
Maybe someone will go on their own box and mention you.
#
[chrisaldrich]
that could actually be an interesting PR stunt tantek...
#
dgold
tantek: infogalactic is an alt-right fork of wikipedia
#
GWG
Would you open up a repository just to collect ideas about a project you aren't going to do right now?
#
GWG
But might in future?
#
snarfed
GWG: sounds like a web page?
#
snarfed
e.g. https://snarfed.org/ideas (warning, old and out of date)
#
Loqi
[Ryan Barrett] ideas
#
aaronpk
GWG: i've done that for a couple
#
aaronpk
to document specific features as issues
#
GWG
I want to collect my ideas on an avatar/nicknames cache in WordPress so when I am ready to work on it... I have them documented.
#
GWG
I want it to be public.
#
GWG
Maybe a page is best until I write anything
#
GWG
On the other hand, the repo would become the plugin repo with all the features as issues

just catching up on some of the discussions about IndieNews and stream.indieweb.org. IndieNews feels to me like a long-form post syndication site. I wonder if I mis-understand IndieNews or if something like stream.indieweb.org might be applicable to be a note/threaded conversation syndicated site?
#
[eddie]
Thinking of IndieNews more like a newspaper and stream.indieweb.org more like a “twitter” channel or back in the day before Twitter got big, a “global” timeline. However, it wouldn’t be global as much as just syndicated notes..... I don’t know. Just thinking about it, I don’t know that I would ever feel comfortable syndicating a short note to IndieNews and wondering if there is some place for that. Maybe, like cleverdevil and tantek sa

it's interesting what people project onto tools like IndieNews. there's certainly nothing wrong with posting a short note there. it will even format it nicely.

eddie, like a planet?
#
tantek
what is a planet?
#
Loqi
A planet, in the context of the indieweb, and blogs/feeds for even longer, is a site that aggregates feeds/updates from a variety of sources, typically focused on a particular topic or community https://indieweb.org/planet
#
tantek
that sounds like what you're talking abou in terms of a "global timeline" or stream
#
[eddie]
tantek: ah, yes, planet is what I was talking about ?
#
[eddie]
aaronpk: I guess it’s because I only see long-form writing on it ?
#
tantek
what is a global timeline
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "global timeline" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
tantek
what is a timeline
#
Loqi
The timeline briefly documents key IndieWeb terms/ideas/concepts, implementations, specifications, and other achievements; people involved, and dates/URLs for each https://indieweb.org/timeline
#
tantek
where is Loqi?
#
[eddie]
and aaronpk: They all get included in the newsletter, right?
#
aaronpk
they do
#
tantek
I thought we documented Twitter's global timeline somewhere
#
tantek
what is public timeline
#
Loqi
public timeline is a silo/aggregator feature that displays all profile/subscription public posts in a reverse chronological order, popularized by Twitter who dropped it in late 2012 https://indieweb.org/public_timeline
#
tantek
that's it
#
[eddie]
Not that I would have anything wrong with a short post being in the newsletter, but seems like the newsletter could get quickly cluttered if it became more of an aggregated note post platform
#
tantek
global timeline is /public_timeline
#
tantek
timeline << public timeline
#
Loqi
ok, I added "[[public timeline]]" to the "See Also" section of /timeline
#
aaronpk
[eddie]: well i could always exclude notes from the newsletter, and just link to indienews from the newsletter
#
[eddie]
aaronpk: That makes sense, that could make it feel less “haunting” to post a note if it wasn’t included in the newsletter.
