Hi all, I am in the process of indie-fying my #wordpress site (michaelmccallister.com). Some time in the past, it seems I created an h-card. The other day, I was testing the site with the Sempress theme in the WP Customizer. Under each post on the front page, instead of displaying my name, it shows the h-card code: "<span class-p-author h-card'>Michael McCallister</span>" This does not happen with the currently active theme (Twenty Thirteen)
#
[workingwriter]
created a new h-card that's sitting in a footer widget, with no change. What's happening?

Can you switch to the WordPress room, I'll help you

@FourthWorldSys @ranimolla @campbell_brown Great point and post. If we don't quickly build alternatives to this "TriNet" it will be too late. #IndieWeb offers opportunities for people and businesses to take back the web, by shifting where we post and hang out: https://www.godaddy.com/garage/indieweb-facebook-opportunities/

Is anyone out there collecting “notes” that are specifically clippings or quotes on their indiesite?
[kevinmarks] joined the channel
#
[kevinmarks]
Kinda - I usually do big pull quotes for links
#
[kevinmarks]
And my noterlive stuff is quotes
#
[gerwitz]
that’s in line with what I’m cobbling together
#
[gerwitz]
“repost” does not seem accurate for this.

(I will be PESOSing from goodreads quotes, clippings.io, and highly.com)

I kinda do that with bookmarks

some of my bookmarks have quotes from the page

(tho my formatting on those is a bit of a mess right now)
#
[gerwitz]
I don’t know why I didn’t think to call these bookmarks
#
[gerwitz]
maybe because some don’t have source URLs 🤔

So … I’m throwing an event with Hackaday+Ultimaker at New Lab that includes lightning talks (90seconds!), tips and tricks about from everything from digital fabrication to coding to hardware design. As I’m now really passionate about Indieweb, I’d love to invite anyone from the Indieweb community in the NYC area to come participate — and evangelize something awesome that you are doing with your sites or tools towards potentially sparking a

Yeah, yeah… the Navy Yard isn’t in Queens, so not the most convenient for some of the NYC-area indieweb crew, but dm me on slack or email me at m.griffin@ultimaker.com for a 100% off coupon code should you be in the area and wanting to participate!

Event is February 28th (and no, I didn’t get the chance to setup invitations and thus explore non-eventbrite tools!):

Sorry to keep wondering out loud about my “clippings” but…does anyone have an opinion about whether a found image (e.g. Pinterest pin) is a “bookmark” or a “photo”?
#
KartikPrabhu
[gerwitz]: maybe bookmark or like
#
[gerwitz]
ah, I hadn’t thought of “like”. Now I have a tri-lemma 😉

Facebook on iOS has a new link in the menu called “Protect”. Clicking it takes you to a page that installs absolute literal spyware on your iPhone. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DV5GP9qVwAAvj6l.jpg

#

[gerwitz], I’d make the entire clipping an h-cite nested in the u-bookmark-of. Then whether there are any other properties (maybe even for photo) within the h-cite doesn’t really matter.

Kinda like a repost

Though that is probably a jargony topic better suited for the dev channel :)

tantek
kevinmarks, I'm pretty disappointed in danah for that article. she is conflating so many things as if they are the same thing when they are not
#
tantek
and in all cases she knows better
#
tantek
e.g. Friendster's "fakesters" were not fake accounts, but rather real accounts with fake images. cartoon characters and such.
KartikPrabhu joined the channel
#
tantek
but worse than that, her conflation of "obvious" bots e.g. @NYTimes vs. bots that *pretend* to be humans (with human icons, seemingly custom written messages) is much much worse
#
tantek
and then she acts surprised after she has performed this artificial conflation "t boggles my mind to think that any regular Twitter user hadn’t seen automated accounts in the past. " really? seriously? come on danah, get real.
#
tantek
I can't help but wonder if the article got badly edited by the silo/publisher she posted it on (newco.co)

It looks like we don't have a page for "Memberful" yet. Would you like to create it? https://indieweb.org/s/113q (Or just say "Memberful is ____", a sentence describing the term)

Memberful is https://memberful.com/, a is a crowd-based, recurring funding/membership site to support and pay content creators.
