I don't think anyone was suggesting reinventing, just documenting
#
snarfed
ah ok. maybe! there's lots of info out there already for SMB web sites
#
snarfed
maybe first we determine if anything new indieweb-specific is needed

I think when it comes to marketing for businesses, they can spend a lot of time, effort, and energy trying to reach multiple audiences on multiple platforms.
#
tantek
snarfed, my assertion is that given the shift/focus/obsession with "social media presence" for "brands" who also have their own website but no integration (maybe a JS widget at best), there's a huge opportunity for integrating indieweb solutions/approaches to using their own website more instead of depending on social media
#
chrisaldrich
If nothing else, the concept of POSSE is certainly a useful one for business use cases to know about.
#
tantek
exactly

I personally wouldn't mind if there were more indieweb ideas behind /analytics and /advertising

Alright, time to walk from my hotel to Mozilla.
#
[cleverdevil]
Hip hip hooray HWC!
#
tantek
oh yeah it's almost that time!
#
chrisaldrich
There are far too many businesses spending a lot of time and money on custom content for silos when they could be adding that value directly to their own websites.
#
chrisaldrich
I would also posit that businesses (especially large ones) are paying developers serious money to dovetail into social silos when that money would be better spent on building direct infrastructure for themselves.
#
pjz
the problem is that unenlightened businesses will then claim their personal direct infrastructure is 'secret sauce' and not share it, so instead there end up being N silos, all broken in unique ways.
#
[jgmac1106]
I think somebody who makes a quick http to https tool (i use two different plug-ins when updating client wordpress sites) could crush it. Customers freak when they see the http warning symbol now, even on static websites where there isn't a single form to fill
#
KartikPrabhu
pjz: you mean they would be closed-source?
#
[jgmac1106]
in terms of ecommerce the PoS (Clover...not sure abotu SWIPE) page builders are getting so good I often just tell folks to do that until they have time.
#
KartikPrabhu
indieweb does not have to be open source
#
KartikPrabhu
they are orthogonal
#
[jgmac1106]
pjz I try to only have 2-3 clients a month and ween them off my support hopefully within a similar time frame. Usually take 4-6 luckily clients are hard to find
#
[jgmac1106]
you can tell Karthik been studying his algebra and physics
#
[jgmac1106]
I love the word orthogonal
#
KartikPrabhu
I was going to use "mutually exclusive"
#
tantek
orthogonal++
#
Loqi
orthogonal has 1 karma
#
[jgmac1106]
but I am more addicted to Factor Analysis than physics applications
#
KartikPrabhu
ok then they are "uncorrelated" ;)

Loqi
kartikprabhu has 155 karma in this channel (193 overall)
#
chrisaldrich
open protocols like webmention are potentially so valuable to businesses that they'll certainly want to use them for the potential interaction.
#
chrisaldrich
it's hard to be able to silo those kinds of things...
j12t joined the channel
#
chrisaldrich
in particular, I image that the increased use of things like reviews (with h-review) and webmention could be a boon to those selling products online. Suddenly amazon's "Verified Purchase" could be done with acquisition posts and reviews....
#
[jgmac1106]
[chrisaldrich] spent more time with altmetric today. Had no idea you built something like it. That is the dashboard anyone in #OpenEd and #OpenScience would want
#
[jgmac1106]
I spend a lot of time working with schools on rethinking P&T I just draw what you already made on whiteboard as the future
#
chrisaldrich
I haven't built anything directly, but have sketched out an indieweb set up that would allow it based on /academic_samizdat + webmentions as well as potentially syndicating to pre-print servers and/or traditional online journals or other repositories.
#
[jgmac1106]
you know all the digped folks, that is all WP driven, maybe you could dogfood it on hybrid pedagogy if it gets to that point
#
chrisaldrich
for promotion and tenure, it's always nice that webmentions are bi-directional so there's the ability to do an audit of the references. They can improve both the communication side as well as the direct reference side at the same time.
#
chrisaldrich
The basic set up also goes a long way toward removing some of the incumbent power of the major publishing concerns within the journal world.

Now when I am logged into library there is link in Google scholar to the silo where the pub lives. It is so beautifully siloed. Have to read up on if Google Scholar has a knowledge graph or how to get one of those cool instant links

#
tantek
what is a zombie
#
Loqi
zombie is in the context of the web a website that had died (site-deaths), perhaps due to domain registration neglect, and has been brought back by some other looking sorta like it did before, but oddly broken, often with spam pages/links added, and eats a lot of CPU likely due to abusive scripts https://indieweb.org/zombie

Hi. I just found your great POSSE wiki page. While I like it, I also really like the mild privacy facebook gives by allowing to only post for friends. Is there any self hosted solution that coul somehow provide something simmilar?
friedcell joined the channel
#
petermolnar
anotheryou: that is a very tricky problem; in theory, a facebook app can ask for permission like that; however: given in theory you POSSE already world-readable posts that are on your site, may I ask what's the use case for it?

petermolnar: I like curating for my friends, but I don't like my various profiles to be publicly scrapable. Too easy to link them together by AI and idintify loads of personal data in a few years :)
#
anotheryou
further I don't like to have all too permanent records of what I write. If it's public it can be scraped or end up on archive.org and haunt me years later. On facebook my friends don't haunt me and I could delete my post and be rather sure none of my friends have archived them before.

https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=16764602 - context: friendica, for which I commented that protocols are still not finished for true federation. Do we have something on the wiki to answer the question of what should social web be capable of as a viable minimum product to replace something like facebook? SWAT0 sounds like one, but the SWAT0 page need a lot of indieweb knowledge.
#
Loqi
[amelius] Emphasis should be on the requirements. What do we want the system to do? And how can we control our privacy? Let's answer these questions first.

The SWAT0 page on the wiki is mostly about mapping it to the IndieWeb. Is the general https://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/federatedsocialweb/wiki/SWAT0 better, petermolnar?

[jgmac1106]
one issue with indieweb model of syndication in just algorithm punishment. I started publishing much more natively on LinkedIn because engagement is so much higher then using their writing platform or a syndicated post. Any company blog post still lives at home and syndicates to LinkedIn
#
tantek
[jgmac1106]: what kind of meaningful "engagement" do you see on LinkedIn? Personally I haven't had reason to ever post anything to LinkedIn, so I'm curious what motivated you (and am seeking to better understand)
#
snarfed
[jgmac1106]: indieweb doesn't require automated syndication! eg i POSSE to twitter, FB, and IG manually.
#
snarfed
("manual until it hurts." different goal, but related.)
#
tantek
snarfed: true!
#
tantek
one possible generalization of manual until it hurts: manual as long as the cost to doing so has a greater benefit than the reduced cost of doing it automatically minus the cost of setting up / maintaining automation.
#
snarfed
maybe. heavy caveat that those costs are both highly personal and highly difficult to estimate
#
tantek
all those details are - benefits as well
#
snarfed
[multiple obligatory xkcds]
#
tantek
offered more as a more general way to think about the sets of tradeoffs
#
tantek
rather than overly simplistic dichotomies like "manual or not" or "indieweb model or not" etc.
#
snarfed
sure. also separate questions: "does indieweb imply/require automation?" and "when do you automate?"
#
tantek
what are syndication models?
#
Loqi
Syndication models are various methods of syndicating or crossposting content from one site to another generally based on the source and target of the original post and the copy (or multiple copies) as well as who owns the original version first https://indieweb.org/syndication-models
#
tantek

#
[jgmac1106]
The amount of lift versus laziness wasn't the point. And I don't know if it is audience behavior as well as as, or instead of, algorithm but for a business engagement is too costly of a trade off. I have no proof but my own stats and I don't have a huge network...and educator networks are always different, but the problem is I don't know if a syndicated link is weighted or not weighted differently. Feels that way. Mobile first. Automation second

Combined with some kind of dashboard like [aaronpk] built with a few quick analytics plug-ins (I think give away the platform sell the plug-ins is a model worth exploring) then you have a good story to tell

Perhaps this is the additional benefit of h-feed as one can continue parsing backwards and not relying on a separate RSS feed at all
#
[snarfed]
ugh, yes, post velocity is definitely a problem for some use cases, but no, fetching more backward isn't that much easier with h-feed in practice. https://github.com/snarfed/bridgy/issues/771

[snarfed] #771 original post discovery: handle sites with high post velocity better
#
[snarfed]
yes, there are rel links, but not widespread
#
[snarfed]
(i also encourage people not to put high velocity posts on their front page. doesn't help bridgy, but better ux for humans)
#
chrisaldrich
What are high velocity posts?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "high velocity posts" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "high velocity posts is ____", a sentence describing the term)
#
[snarfed]
maybe high velocity post types

I remember Facebook hiding some of their higher velocity stuff (scrobbles coming in via API) in a sidebar...
#
chrisaldrich
likes that kartik attempts to separate his physics and indieweb terminology ;)
#
KartikPrabhu
frequency and velocity are both physics ;)
#
chrisaldrich
I suspect it's a large potential issue for feed readers and maybe something that microsub may ease for many.
#
chrisaldrich
KartikPrabhu, I &nu; that... :p

Hey does anyone here know the status of the Open Source Bridge 2018 conf (mentioned on [schmarty]’s excellent podcast) as adjacent to the IndieWeb Summit in Portland in June? Their site http://opensourcebridge.org/ doesn’t appear to be updated since 2017.
#
aaronpk
[sdepolo]: i'm talking with them since they're hosting IWS in June
#
aaronpk

Thanks [aaronpk] do you know if the dates are confirmed? I am trying to bring a posse from GoDaddy to both events and pitching the team.
#
gRegorLove
chrisaldrich: you did! It was off the coast by LA
#
gRegorLove
Didn't feel it down in SD.
#
aaronpk
nice! they've booked the venue already and paid a deposit and everything. it looks like they are going to trim down osbridge slightly this year and it will be just a one or two day event. they're still getting the details sorted out. it'll be friday or thursday-friday.

gRegorLove, ha! must have been something in the 3.X range, I didn't notice anything. Usually it's the fires I worry more about than the earthquakes.
#
chrisaldrich
In fact right now I'm concerned about a sheriff's helicopter hovering over the mountain about 3 blocks away... typically means a fire of some sort.
#
gRegorLove
Glad you're safe

Problem is, it's so hazy and cloudy on the mountain, I probably could distinguish a fire up there today.

↩️ Yes, you have to publish first. Looks like there's something putting a lot of hidden svg files into your content. A plugin perhaps? You can also find some potential help in the chat at https://chat.indieweb.org/wordpress/
