Anyone played with pngwriter yet? http://pngwriter.com I’m intrigued by the idea, and wondering about how I can get it to appear on my site. (copied here from chat.
# eli_oat joined the channel
#
jeremycherfas
Miklb: It doesn’t support Safari (yet?) but users have reported finding texts created on IOS waiting from them when using it on Chrome.
#
aaronpk
i guess it's an interesting technique for POSSEing articles to twitter
#
jeremycherfas
My question is, how to get it to POSSE automatically.
#
aaronpk
it seems like it's not really necessary to publish an image of text on your site, since you can just publish text
#
jeremycherfas
Manual till it hurts?
#
aaronpk
this would be something that silo.pub or bridgy publish could build in, so that if you tried to POSSE an article to twitter it would generate an image
#
jeremycherfas
Right aaronpk. So a simple copy and paste to pngwriter would be suffficient.
#
aaronpk
but in the mean time... manual til it hurts :)
#
Zegnat
This is best suited for either middle-length posts (though I would not ever bother reading those) or texts you want to be picked up for sharing on Facebook/Tumblr/etc (where text images are a norm)
# eli_oat joined the channel
#
jeremycherfas
Agreed Zegnat. Making use of the reach of silos essentially for marketing.
#
Zegnat
I do wonder why it doesn’t work on Safari. Is it using JS & canvas for everything maybe?
#
jeremycherfas
No idea, although Dave Winer does offer reasons
#
Zegnat
’s face meets his palm
#
jeremycherfas
pretends not to understand.
#
Zegnat
I think POSSE’ing through the pngwriter.com service might not work very well, jeremycherfas. So definitely manual ’til it hurts unless you build your own.
#
jeremycherfas
Why do you think that, zegnat?
#
petermolnar
jeremycherfas that shouldn't be hard to replicate
#
petermolnar
in any langugate
#
Zegnat
Because if it is using JS & canvas for all of this, you can’t make your server talk to it unless you emulate a browser
#
jeremycherfas
But — manual till it hurts FTW. It isn’t as if I am going to use it often.
#
aaronpk
unrelated, I really like the design of this blog and how the code snippets appear! https://mxb.at/blog/how-to-turn-your-website-into-a-pwa/
# eli_oat joined the channel
#
Zegnat
aaronpk, you mean how the background stretches out to the whole site and is not contained by the centre column?
#
Zegnat
I feel like someone else used to do that years and years ago (and maybe still) … Jonathan Snook maybe? Or PPK?
#
Zegnat
goes looking
#
Zegnat
That pngwriter preview is definitely some canvas stuff. Different font used between my default browser setup and my current testing in a sandbox. I am probably blocking JS from accessing my fonts, to stop browser fingerprinting.

#
jeremycherfas
Zegnat: what’s the plugin required for jit.si?
#
jeremycherfas
I didn’t know that would be involved, so delayed.
#
Zegnat
There shouldn’t be a plugin?
#
Zegnat
I am pretty sure petermolnar and I were able to jump in instantly with just browsers
#
Zegnat
When we tested 2 weeks ago that is
#
jeremycherfas
Safari wanted a browser. Chrome does not. So I am in.

I’ll be there ASAP jeremycherfas, just brewing tea

#
petermolnar
appear.in was fine, wasn't it?
# bnvk joined the channel
#
Zegnat
Was also fine, yes. I don’t know who brought up jitsi and why I decided to test that one now first
#
Zegnat
This does show bitrate and everything. Seems really nice for saving my bandwidth
#
petermolnar
because jit.si used to have dedicated clients which were not relying on webtrc, hence not toasing cpu a while ago
#
petermolnar
but I fear that's gone
#
petermolnar
so, then, jitsi.org or appear.in?

Apparently The Facebook Algorithm Mom Problem http://boffosocko.com/2017/07/11/the-facebook-algorithm-mom-problem/ is sitting at #1 on Hacker News this morning and has wreaked some serious havoc with my servers!
#

Thanks petermolnar (for the privilege and the pain)!

[chrisaldrich]
Hopefully it makes some reasonable coverage for Indieweb...
#
[miklb]
hands chrisaldrich a WP caching plugin
#
[chrisaldrich]
takes the plugin and stomps on it....
#
[chrisaldrich]
The sad part was that I had turned caching off a few days ago because of some random bugs it was causing.
#
[chrisaldrich]
It's back on now and hopefully the server won't have as many problems though I'll live with the bugs for a bit.
#
jeremycherfas
Kudos to chrisaldrich for that article. Luckily my Mom is not a problem
#
[miklb]
chrisaldrich which plugin are you using?
#
[chrisaldrich]
I think it's WP Super Cache
#
petermolnar
[chrisaldrich] sorry

tantek
oh oops
#
snarfed
ah, looks like the post date is the same as the event date, so falcon will only render it after the event has started/passed 😂
#
tantek
I wish I could say that was on purpose
#
tantek
because my *intent* is to only show the event in my stream / home page when it has started
#
tantek
but right now that's an accident
#
snarfed
is that really your intent?! you don't want to advertize upcoming events to your readers?
#
snarfed
maybe i misunderstand
#
tantek
not in my stream no, but yes in my event box
#
tantek
and perhaps separately in announcement posts
#
tantek
but then when the event starts, I want it to automatically roll onto the top of my stream
#
snarfed
ah, announcement vs event posts, interesting, ok

sebboh, might be a bit hard to telk while the London event is being live tweeted. But I would be happy to answer questions you have :)
#
KevinMarks
hi sebboh - it means that your site can work with indieweb
#
KevinMarks
have a look at indiewebify.me for a walk-through
#
sebboh
Indieweb is a .. software, or protocol, or something, not just a movement?
#
Zegnat
What is really means is still debated. Mostly it seems to come down to 1) owning your own identity online (most often a personal domain) and 2) look into how you can make that identity talk with others without needing a centralised service (silo) like Facebook or Twitter
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "really means is still debated. Mostly it seems to come down to 1) owning your own identity online (most often a personal domain) and 2) look into how you can make that identity talk with others without needing a centralised service (silo) like Facebook or Twitter" yet. Would you like to create it? https://indieweb.org/s/10og
#
sknebel
it's a movement that has come up with some protocols. We do write software, but there is not "the indieweb project" piece of software
#
Zegnat
Mostly it is a movement, but there are some common protocols that are used so websites can parse/understand eachother and communicate behind the scenes.
#
sebboh
ok KevinMarks, I'll read that. And thanks Loqi and Zegnat

The IndieWeb is about owning your domain, using it as your primary identity to publish on your own site (optionally syndicate elsewhere), and owning your data https://indieweb.org/IndieWeb

#

#
Loqi
ahahahaha
#
tantek
it helps if you have or want your own domain and to use it to publish content!
#
KevinMarks
I'll see if I can get Martin on that later
#
sebboh
so I see that owning your own domain is considered a first step. Personally, I would say that owning your own *namespace* is what is important. So example.com/~yourname would be sufficent. Some may argue that you don't "own" your public_html directory, but by that metric, it may be that you don't "own" your domain, either: your registrar does. A trusted sysadmin is just like a trusted registrar--they won't mess around in users'
#
sebboh
namespaces unless something is seriously wrong that can affect other users.
#
tantek
sebboh - words like "namespace" make pretty much zero sense to a typical user, so we avoid them here. we do have a dev-specific chat in #indieweb-dev
#
tantek
and strongly disagree that "trusted sysadmin is just like a trusted registrar"
#
sebboh
I just got thrown down the nerd chute.
#
tantek
in practice that's nearly never the case
#
Zegnat
To be fair, while the term domain is used that’s not strictly a necessity. Which is why I said identity instead :) I am on a folder on a domain myself.

#
sebboh
tantek: registrars just have better PR, and they are almost always organizations rather than individuals. But it's not an important point, I own half a dozen domains... I'm just thinking about the annual cost of domain ownership. There are various ways to get truly free name spaces. (and though all require trust... to wit, so does domain ownership!)

"another person" is far more accurate

petermolnar: I recommend working out a deal with rsync.net where you backup user dirs and give each user a key. That way, if you *literally* die (god forbid!), the users at least have a chance to survive.. :) Rsync.net doesn't appear to be going anywhere.

HWC question: what's the best way to get non-programmer people involved?
#
Kongaloosh
I've been pointing people to wordpress and known. Some are doing it because they want to learn how to program in python, so I've been pointing them to flask.
#
Kongaloosh
figure that we get people up and going then focus on the specifically indie-things
#
Zegnat
Sit down with them, ask what they would like to do with their site, and get them started with either Known or WP. Those are probably the best lead ons

Zegnat
Sounds like you have been doing alright there :D

#

Feedback would be super helpful!
#
sknebel
yes, please do
#
Zegnat
Web Sign In with rel-me is a good first step once they have landing pages up. That’s also still the first thing on https://indiewebify.me/ (which is another good starting point)
#
Kongaloosh
I've been putting together my own personalized getting-started for people with no experience
#
sknebel
Zegnat: I always get "what for" as a response to that, without having a good immediate answer
#
Kongaloosh
because my general impression is that it's overwhelming for people
#
Zegnat
I always present rel-me as “proof of ownership”, rather than “it enables web sign-in”
#
Zegnat
(as answer to sknebel)
#
Kongaloosh
like, the mechanical engineering folks really need hand-holding, which is probably reasonable.
#
KartikPrabhu
Kongaloosh: if engineers need hand-holding then "normal" folk aren't going to be easier
#
Zegnat
the “journalism folks” we have sometimes tried to target need that too, Kongaloosh. So all feedback from those groups are super helpful.
#
KartikPrabhu
sknebel: "what for" is always the best question
#
KartikPrabhu
no one would do anything and spend a lot of time and effort unless they know why
#
Kongaloosh
KartikPrabhu:^ this
#
sknebel
KartikPrabhu: indeed, which is why I'm not sure putting that part early is useful (especially since I have no convincing answer!)
#
KartikPrabhu
the "why" is the biggest problem I have faced. Even people who ahve seen POSSE and backfeed on my site think "it' cool" but are not motivated to have that themselves
#
Zegnat
Why a personal landing page (“identity”)? Findability and control. You want an employer to find you? A family member? Something to put on your businesscard where people can find more ways to contact you? Landing page.
#
Zegnat
Why rel-me on the landing page? You control your landing page. You do not control your other identities. Point to e.g. silos taking people’s usernames away. Having rel-me to and from the other online identities means you have an easy way to show that those names are really yours. (Possibly demo this with rel-me-verify browser extension.)
#
sl007
Zegnat To be true when I study https://indieweb.org/Virtual_HWC#Platforms I would go for mumble + etherpad in a selfhosted way in a nice ui … I mean is there a benefit of seeing our wrinkles ?
#
KartikPrabhu
tbh I did the whole set my own site up and indiewebify it becaause I thought it was a "cool idea" not because I wanted to "preserve my content" when silos go down
#
Zegnat
Those explanations have been doing well for me, KartikPrabhu Kongaloosh sknebel
#
Zegnat
The preserve content argument I find to really only work with a small subset of people so far :( Landing pages are easier to understand.
#
KartikPrabhu
Zegnat: most people I know, don't care about those things since they think FB, Twitter, LinkedIn work for those
#
KartikPrabhu
and they don't want to mix those audiences either
#
Zegnat
If they really don’t want to mix audiences or have a single point of contact, it is moot. But that basically means they are not interested of owning a single web identity in the first place. Should you really try getting those people onboard then?
#
Zegnat
sl007: while webcam is secondary, we have used the ability to screenshare at different points. It is awesome for demos. You lose that with Mumble.
#
tantek
what is Mumble
#
Loqi
Mumble is an open-source voice chat platform https://indieweb.org/Mumble
#
sl007
with very low latency
#
sl007
Zegnat I see
#
KartikPrabhu
Zegnat: "single web identity" is not the only indieweb principle. To me "owning your content" is more important and people still feel using silos does that for you
#
sebboh
Zegnat: I'm new here but I think if somebody is using something like facebook, then there is still value in getting them onto their own website, so they can control how their data is used.
#
sknebel
sl007 Zegnat: might be worth investigating if there is something better at screen sharing than video. E.g. for colloberation I've primarily used Teamviewer or similar, without video
#
petermolnar
which is somewhat true, IF you have a proper, portable data option
#
sebboh
+ exclusively, like they only use one platform.
#
petermolnar
(re KartikPrabhu owning content)
#
KartikPrabhu
sknebel: talky works for screensharng too
#
petermolnar
talky burns my cpu
#
KartikPrabhu
petermolnar: yeah it is a bit intensive
#
Zegnat
I have been having a hard time selling it to people on “owning your content” because very few people seem to feel their content requires permanency. Instead I have found landing pages easier to sell people on. But YMMV KartikPrabhu :)
#
KartikPrabhu
Zegnat: we are not disagreeing at all. I think the main issue is to get people to care in the first place
#
tantek
what is a homepage?
#
Loqi
Your homepage represents you on the web, typically at the top of your domain, and shows your name and an iconic representation, often marked up with h-card https://indieweb.org/homepage
#
Zegnat
In fact, because they don’t require the permanency of owning yourself, they prefer Facebook because there they have the proper audience tools that we can’t offer
#
KartikPrabhu
and diff. people care abotu diff. things
#
tantek
what is a landing page
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "landing page" yet. Would you like to create it? https://indieweb.org/s/10ok
#
tantek
landing page is homepage
#
petermolnar
Zegnat there are different groups; eg. there are those who lost data due to silo deaths - those will indeed value the own your data thing
#
sknebel
Zegnat: Them having *any* independent web identity is a good step, even if you can't automatically verify that it double-links to their social media (really, do we/you use that outside of rel-me-auth? I don't think I do in code I actually use (yet))
#
petermolnar
those who've not yet been burnt - same with backups by the way - will find the "it's really mine" part more interesting
#
petermolnar
especially those who hadn't experienced myspace or the web before that
#
Zegnat
I wrote a rel verification browser extension, so yeah, I guess I use it, sknebel ;)
#
petermolnar
when you had the power to do something uniquely you
#
sknebel
Zegnat: you use that extension outside of demoing or testing?
#
Zegnat
sknebel sl007 having something next to mumble for screensharing/presenting would be really interesting. If there is such a thing we definitely need to evaluate. Teamviewer seems like overkill to me.
#
KartikPrabhu
petermolnar: "uniquely" is a problem, because having a "unique web site" requires a lot more work wrt personalising site design etc..
#
Zegnat
sknebel, very little, but my constantly breaking version of the extension also shows me when a page includes rel-me and that has made it a lot more interesting
#
sknebel
Zegnat: interesting
#
sknebel
why breaking?
# JohnBeales joined the channel
#
petermolnar
KartikPrabhu not really, no; you can make something generic quite unique with not _that_ much work by making it a bit different, a bit odd, compared to the "normal"
#
sknebel
Zegnat: yeah, teamviewer isn't ideal, just an example of a thing that does more screenshare than other stuff. I've done pair programming over Teamviewer for days, that's why I thought about it
#
petermolnar
(pair programming: ssh + vim ftw)
#
Zegnat
Because I am not yet used to either fetch api or the WebExtension API. I need to schedule a day of sitting down with it and actually getting it on track again
#
KartikPrabhu
petermolnar: "not_that_much work" yes for you and I maybe
#
petermolnar
no, I mean it; a long while ago there was a custom proto-social-network where you could, due to a bug, add inline ccs applied for the whole site
#
petermolnar
people ended up customizing it bit by bit
#
KartikPrabhu
yyeah needs you to know how to add inline CSS
#
Zegnat
unique is easy. Pair programming indeed. Teach them a little CSS and before you know it they have a 2 column website with a rotated photo! http://emmahodge.org/ (still my favourite indieweb site, as I believe it captures perfectly how you can start playing with your own site)

#
petermolnar
you don't have to go to extremes to make is unique, that's what I'm saying
#
KartikPrabhu
now good luck telling anyone else using a silo to do that
#
KartikPrabhu
again people who know HTML+CSS are not the issue here
#
petermolnar
eg. facebook: if one would replace all the blue with pink, for now, since that would be the only one like that, it's be unique already
#
KartikPrabhu
they can do wahtever they want/like
#
KartikPrabhu
petermolnar: "unique" is stretching it
#
petermolnar
people who are not willing to copy paste CSS will never get on board of indieweb
#
KartikPrabhu
Twitter already does color theming
#
KartikPrabhu
petermolnar: ^^ that
#
Zegnat
Emma didn’t actually know HTML & CSS before going to an event, which is why I think she makes the *perfect* example
#
sknebel
petermolnar: heh, there was a German social network that was like facebook, but pink. tons of people had userCSS to turn it blue
#
petermolnar
from fixed colors, which is a bad joke

I hope to minimize that someday with the the WordPress theme I’m building. Will support the “customizer” but be ready for all of the IW plugins w/mf2
#
KartikPrabhu
the point is to convince people who don't know CSS and HTML or any web thing
#
sknebel
how's the tumblr-verse in that regard? there you still have customization, right?
#
Zegnat
Tumblr is 100% customisable AFAIK.
#
petermolnar
KartikPrabhu why is that a point?
#
petermolnar
Zegnat it is
#
KartikPrabhu
wordpress.com has themeing too, but how many people use wordpress instead of Twitter or FB?
#
Zegnat
Tumblr basically gives you their own little template engine and you plus HTML, CSS, and JS in to your hearts desire
#
petermolnar
surprisingly, those who are willing to write, do use WP
#
KartikPrabhu
petermolnar: because that is what was being discussed, how to convince people to have their own websites
#
petermolnar
same for tumblr and weird artists
#
petermolnar
KartikPrabhu we have to accept that there is a significant mass of people who are not willing to learn or do anything that's not free, easy and already done
#
KartikPrabhu
petermolnar: if we are stickking to devs or people who know their way around silos, this whole discussion is moot
#
petermolnar
and I believe those people are way, way beyond our current reach
#
petermolnar
so instead focus on those who already have something, eg. WP.com, to start using our ideas
#
Zegnat
People need to have a reason. I think that’s what it comes down to. If they are not interested in having a centralised identity, nor interested in the permanency of their content, anything will be a hard sell. If you can get them on either of those two points (make a landing page on a domain that is your prefered name!) (post to your own place firs
#
Zegnat
t and have that place post to your usual channels instead, instant backup!) you can start bringing them onboard.
#
Zegnat
For everything else … multiuser known instance managed by a third party? Mastodon?
#
petermolnar
we have gen1, some gen2; KartikPrabhu you're talking gen4 when we should be aiming gen2 long tail and gen3 early adopters
#
KartikPrabhu
petermolnar: even those "need to have a reason" as Zegnat put it
#
KartikPrabhu
"do this becaause it is cool" is not a reason for a lot of time/effort investment for anyone
#
Zegnat
asks Isi to make sure to write down questions that come up during Ft Colins HWC tonight
#
KartikPrabhu
for instaaance "why shold wordpress make the effort to switch from mf1 to mf2" ?
#
Zegnat
I hear there will be 3 people at HWC Fort Collins. I am not sure anyone there is gen1!
#
KartikPrabhu
that is even a gen1 question for wordpress core devs
#
sebboh
Hm, "because it is cool" is totally a reason, it's like .. the most important reason. I got my own members.<isp>.com/user site when I was, hm, 15? Because it was cool! Later, geocities.. then <my buddy's linux box>.net/~hobbes, and later my own domain, served off that same machine.. Because it was cool!
#
KartikPrabhu
sebboh: yes, it was for me too. but not for most people
#
sebboh
How much of this indieweb movement is targeted at children? I think the answer should be "a lot". Mozilla knows this. Tons of their "learn html using this interactive widget!" stuff is targeted at youth.
#
sebboh
come to think of it, there was a time when geocities was superior to <isp>.com because I'd lose the latter anytime I switched ISPs.. but geocities was on the net, independent of my ISP.. oh, irony...
#
Zegnat
I don’t know if any of us is working with kids for indieweb. I know jkphl does the Nürnberg CoderDojo which is aimed at kids
#
Zegnat
I am assuming snarfed is making sure his daughter inherits bridgy and keeps that running for us? ;)
#
sebboh
What do kids do on the net in general? Snapchat?
#

I wouldn't say "aimed at" but we've definitely had a young kid demo before. It was rad. https://indieweb.org/2014/Demos#Faire

The wiki isn't encouraging, but is there anything we can do to drag Disqus into the indieweb?

probably the lowest hanging fruit is letting people sign in with their domain to disqus, instead of requiring a disqus account or twitter/etc
