@kevinmarks
@jensenharris The pattern we have used in #indieweb is “chat for conversation, wiki for permanence” and a bot we can use to both query and update the wiki with information. With a culture of doing this, the filers can help the pilers by creating structure for them to query.

ok, I added "[[giving-credit]]" to a new "See Also" section of /via

!tell zegnat I tried that for about a day and half back when, and wasn't surprised it never took off.
#
Loqi
Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next
#
Zegnat
Oh, yeah, I wouldn’t argue for bringing it back either jeremycherfas. But it is an interesting prior art I was reminded of :)
#
jeremycherfas
Right. One problem is that in the attention economy, unscrupulous people will never see the point. I always try and go back to original sources when, for example, a popular post on Science Daily comes my way. Usually it has just been lifted word for word.
#
sknebel
never heard of those proposed symbols, interesting
#
dgold
why use them and not h/t or via.
#
dgold
it doesn't make any sense
#
jeremycherfas
Because internationalism in cyberspace
#
dgold
you say internationalism, I see proscriptive cultural normativism
#
petermolnar
when is VHWC?
#
petermolnar
I'll try to dial in today
#
Zegnat
Are we doing vHWC today? Actually, I think I can be available!
#
petermolnar
well, the link Loqi copies says 2018 | 3.14
#
jeremycherfas
I thought today was not happening. You're still in Netherlands, aren't you, zegnat
#
petermolnar
I could be wrong, I was just following the calendar, but it seems like it has every week listed there
#
petermolnar
ah... ok. vHWC redirects to basic HWC
#
petermolnar
forget it :)
#
Zegnat
Yeah, that calendar blob is just the default HWC footer
#
Zegnat
I got back to Sweden yesterday, jeremycherfas
#
Zegnat
So if people are interested, I am available and wouldn’t mind putting up a vHWC to catch up with what everyone is doing!

This essay on how reddit tries to shape discourse is well worth reading, both for the text itself and the subtext of how successful Ohanian and Huffman have been at erasing @aaronsw from the Reddit story. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2018/03/19/reddit-and-the-struggle-to-detoxify-the-internet #Indieweb

#
Zegnat
petermolnar, what time would you be interested in?
#
petermolnar
preferably after 17:30 GMT for the talkative part (that's when I get home, approximately)
#
Zegnat
jeremycherfas, sknebel, thoughts? Any other EU folks interested in a chat? (Jeena?)
#
jeremycherfas
I'm up for an hour or so, but not the whole stretch.

I could maybe join in - I'm in London today and late afternoon is fluid

My late afternoon and evening are definitely free, so I would much rather those of you with a stricter schedule settle on the time :)

does anyone have a writeup of their indieweb workflow with POSSE and backfill? How do folks reply to tweets, for example, from their own domains? Or do they not, and simply rely on brid.gy to get the Twitter-posted replies collected into their sites?
AngeloGladding joined the channel
#
Zegnat
I am pretty sure several people write their twitter replies on their own domain.
#
Zegnat
Quill (the micropub client) can be set-up to syndicate the reply to Twitter directly, I believe. Other people might have their CMS syndicate (e.g. Known comes with tools for that IIRC). And others might be using Bridgy Publish or SiloPub to push to Twitter after posting the reply to their own site (the oposite of backfill, using an external service to copy a local post to a Twitter post)

#
skippy
i'm curious how people do this. do they read tweets on their domains, too? or do they leave whatever twitter reader they use, go to quill to compose a reply, and then post?
#
skippy
reading aaronpk's indieweb-reader post was fascinating. that looks really slick.
#
aaronpk
that's how I reply to a lot of tweets now
Kyle-K joined the channel
#
aaronpk
but I also have quill's bookmarklet in my browser, so when i'm looking at a twitter permalink I can click it and it jumps me to quill to reply
#
aaronpk
also the omnibear extension is pretty cool cause it works within the twitter timeline
#
skippy
cool.
wolftune joined the channel
#
jeremycherfas
The big decision is whether to do everything on my own domain or be selective about doing some things on Twitter and some things on my site. In general, I tend to do Likes in Twitter and replies where context matters there too. The rest is on my site.
#
jeremycherfas
But it is very fluid. No hard and fast rules.

aaronpk
I like having my "likes" on my site since it acts as a neat collection of things i've read on the internet
#
jeremycherfas
This goes to the recent post by chrisaldrich about what a Like means for each of us. A Like, for me, on Twitter, is not something I need to own. A like of a blog post is different, and closer to a bookmark.

omnibear is a great client for micropub in your browser (firefox and chrome) and it works with twitter (and h-entries)

Zegnat: I'd be up for a bit of vHWC too. set a time
#
Zegnat
petermolnar’s 17:30 translates to 18:30 our time. I’d be up for just being around then and seeing who turns up
#
Zegnat
Unless jeremycherfas wants to start before 18:30 CET?
#
jeremycherfas
No, 18:30 is good for me. I'll be able to stay for 45-60 minutes
marcthiele joined the channel
#
Zegnat
Alright, let me add that to today’s page then! No worries on not being around for 2 hours or w/e, jeremycherfas. I imagine it’ll mostly be a quick catch up. We can maybe also discuss how we want to drive vHWC forward :)
#
Zegnat

Curses! My avatar seems to have gone missing again.
#
jeremycherfas
The photo is in the h-card, but it doesn't seem to be showing up. Not that it matters, except that it looks broken.
#
Zegnat
Hmm, it seems to follow a 301 redirect to a 404?
#
jeremycherfas
But it does show in /IRC_People which is getting it from somewhere else. Cache?
#
jeremycherfas
Mf2 parser shows "photo": ["https://www.jeremycherfas.net/user/plugins/aboutme/assets/avatars/zoot.jpg"] and that definitely exists.
#
jeremycherfas
As you can see :)
#
Zegnat
Yeah, but your template on the wiki uses a hardcoded URL

I'd love to join in - but spend my wednesday evenings waiting for my son ti finish rugby training

Right. Thanks. Of course I forgot to check the template. Now, which one to change? I think I know the answer.

Zegnat
We were considering doing some sort of scheduling poll, dgold. To try and optimise for a timeslot where people didn’t have to cancel based on it being in their commute time. If you think you could regularly appear (and want to do so) on a different day do pitch in!
