There should be an #indieWeb alternative to Gravatar. I shouldn't need to create a wordpress account or upload my image to every_social_network. Host it on one place (my site) and just update it in one place. ..Or am I missing something?

Happy Towel Day! now; let's see that Facebook all of my data in JSON format download.
#
petermolnar
Facebook definitely changed the data export page since I last logged in in ~1 month ago
Pierre-O and friedcell joined the channel
#
petermolnar
oh, this is intersting: ads/advertisers_who_uploaded_a_contact_list_with_your_information.json
#
petermolnar
Facebook export: mostly useless. Eg. 'even_invitation' have JSON entries with name, start, end - that's it. No link, no ID, no nothing to actually find the event on Facebook.
#
petermolnar
same for pages, friends, groups, basically everything
#
petermolnar
interesting info though: in your_posts.json every media attachment has EXIF and upload_ip extracted
#
petermolnar
so.. on Tumblr, if you remove the cookie consent switch, you are immediately redirected back to the agree to cookies and there's no way around it.
#
petermolnar
is this the very close end to tumblr?
#
petermolnar
oh, this applies to their RSS feeds as well
#
swentel
apparently on twitter if you do not consent, the next screen is something like 'You are starting the process to remove your account'
#
swentel
with a continue button :)

I appreciated the fact that Twitter made it really easy for me to opt out of almost everything.

can you curl them?

haven't looked into it in detail, just noticed that it works

[jgmac1106]
If we are talking curl maybe #dev better place?

petermolnar
[jgmac1106]: just because a tech word sneaked in? :) Given this is a rather mixed topic of gdpr/consent/rss/cookies, maybe, maybe not

thanks. nextcloud reader appears abandoned, and nextcloud is a very heavy solution for just a reader.

I didn't have it written up anywhere, though I've given the step-by-step on here a few times

it's convoluted and differs by browser. i'm hoping the centralized logging will simplify things

swentel
snarfed, the webmention endpoint for fed.brid.gy to send to is https://fed.brid.gy/webmention ?
#
swentel
should've asked in dev sorry
#
snarfed
swentel: yup. normal discovery on https://fed.brid.gy/ should work
#
swentel
ok, let me try, I think I should be able to reply now (fingers crossed)
#
snarfed
expect it to be brittle, at best 😢
#
swentel
no worries :)
#

I'm marking this as experimental too in the drupal module :)

202 response! If this is Mastodon 1.x, their signature verification probably failed. :(
#
snarfed
yuuuuup that's the most common one when everything else works
#
Loqi
[Ryan Barrett] Working on connecting Mastodon with the #IndieWeb! https://fed.brid.gy/ https://snarfed.org/indieweb-ostatus-bridge
#
snarfed
mastodon sometimes/often responds 202, which means, "got it, everything checks out, but i still may not accept this, because reasons."
#
snarfed
(even 2.x)
#
[jgmac1106]
because reasons
#
swentel
in theory it should work on that url right, I see a reply from Greg there
#
swentel
ok, let me send it again (unless fed blocks double requests)
#
sknebel
do follows make it across now, or is Mastodon still expecting some Mastodon-isms there?
#
snarfed
it definitely can and does sometimes work! but sometimes not. we tracked down lots of those reasons, often along with the mastodon people, but not all.
#
Loqi
[snarfed] #21 translate following, both directions
#
swentel
funny that /responses say it's 'complete' though
#
snarfed
swentel: yeah, since it doesn't know any better
#
snarfed
202 often means mastodon ate it, but occasionally means it worked
#
snarfed
more importantly (and re sknebel), bridgy fed's fatal flaw is that it only propagates responses back and forth right now, but what people really want is full featured interop, including following, propagating *posts* back and forth, etc
#
swentel
well, I follow in indigenous now, so that's kind of fine for me
#
swentel
(unless I miss something)
#
snarfed
swentel: but i assume you want mastodon users to be able to find you and see your posts too, right?
#
Loqi
misses something too
#
swentel
yeah, that would be awesome indeed

hey [cleverdevil]
#
swentel
ok let me try that out
#
swentel
that piece of content was not in my atom feed
#
snarfed
but if it mattered, i think you'd get non-2xx response

yeah, probably

good to know people are thinking about this stuff!

I feel like it's not as important (though it would be cool) for people to be able to have their own domain day one, it should be as easy for a user to move from whatever easy thing they set up with a third party to move to their own url/website
#
tantek
[Natris1979]: as people said about people having their own phone numbers in the 1980s

and domain names are cheaper than phone numbers, annually

[tantek] good point

@KartikPrabhu that's different, I'm talking about a non-profit model where you'd still own you own data and the costs were paid for not from selling data but as a *true* public service, not as a data warehouse masquerading as a benevolent organization.
