↩️ Hi! Do you want to add any projects here ahead of the #DWebSummit? I'll circle back to the mapping possibility with indieweb after August.

Thanks [kevinmarks]. What do you think we'll think about social networks in the future? A necessary evil, pre-historic, or "as common as the air we breathe"?

@jgmac1106
Doing research for @wiobyrne and my book on Open Pedagogy I realized @davecormier’s Social Media and Open Education class is on @wikispaces this was precursors to all the MOOCs. I hope this bit of history isn’t lost forever. #digped #IndieWeb #edtechchat… http://jgregorymcverry.com/4272-2/

Ryan's been working on importing his old tweets to his site

up next Kia
#
tantek__
because the other forum she was using was very controlling by a single person
#

Kia says please share and encourage people to join
#
tantek__
it's a pretty vanilla forum, built in PHP
#
tantek__
she also built https://www.kiaikim.com/ using Known
#
tantek__
very simple, has long form blog posts
#
tantek__
she also plans to set it up to store all her social media there

Dori noted she has http://www.dori.com/ and set it up (along with most of her domains) to auto-renew, and took ~3 years to go offline
#

so now her website is still up and right where she left it

and we're done for the night here at HWC SF. good night everyone!

whoa I just clicked through from Ben's site next to chrisaldrich's site, then next took me back to chrisaldrich's site twice! before it finally took me to gregorlove's site
#

schmarty: ^^^ FYI next/prev should probably NOT just redirect back to the site they came from
#
schmarty
tantek: next prev are random right now. I want to make them deterministic before I write up the thing publicly
#
tantek__
can it be random minus the site it came from?
#

(if the random function returns the same emoji as the link, try again)

That's what I was suggesting with a DHT - if you use one of the DHT hash functions you can get a deterministic order that is consistent as you add sites.

#
petermolnar
[mrkrndvs]: micropub is a POST, essentially it creates a new entry; activitypub is more like websub/pub under indieweb terms
#
[jgmac1106]
@petermolnar I think he is also trying to get at the why? In our little corner of the web we see a lot of big names going with activitypub and not micropub as the api to create and write post. I think [mrkrndvs] is looking at the philosophical underpinnings of the choice. Why one over the other? Why doesn't IndieWeb use ActivityPub? Why does rest of the world ignore micropub?
#
petermolnar
those are very interesting existential questions
#
sknebel
activitypub doesn't replace Micropub
#
[mrkrndvs]
Yes, that is exactly what is was wondering. Thank you Greg
#
petermolnar
but... isn't activitypub only an rss replacement?
#
sknebel
or rather, it has a part for the same role as Micropub, but that's not used at all to my knowledge
#
petermolnar
micropub basically turns anything into a headless cms
#
sknebel
what people use is the server-to-server part of ActivityPub, and that's roughly does what feeds/Websub/webmention do
#
[jgmac1106]
yes, but @sknebel but few support both, and everything in the OER space seems to be going with activitypub just trying to get a existential questions before coffeee, always dangerous
#
[jgmac1106]
but that you both, that helps a ton. @mrkdvs those who use the server-server activitypub seem to rely more on the json rdf markup of scehma.org rather than the easier to use mf2, though you can have both and play everywhere
#
sknebel
its not schema.org, it's ActivityStreams
#
[jgmac1106]
but thank* you
#
[jgmac1106]
thanks again for clearing up misundertanding
#
[jgmac1106]
What is ActivityStreams?
#
Loqi
ActivityStreams (AS) is a standardization effort to define common types of objects and actions (verbs) taken on various social media sites https://indieweb.org/ActivityStreams
#
sknebel
our page for it might not really be up to date
yar joined the channel
#
sknebel
some rough points I can think of right now: AP uses JSON based endpoints instead of parsing from html. it's more optimized for the many user per server scenarios (like mastodon). getting a site to work with AP is more effort of basics you have to get running.

Did have a wonderful conversation about photos with [aaronpk] about how Flickr and "art" photos get titles but how Instagram and "memory" photos do not, but how sometimes if any post has a title it is seen as article
#
sknebel
where?
#
sknebel
but yes, the semantics of photo vs post containing a photo vs ... are kind of unclear, especially when multiple photos are involved
#
[jgmac1106]
.oooh geeze gonna head to vhat.indieweb.org to search
#
[jgmac1106]
yeah I was gonna start POSSEing to Flickr which meant adding a title to photos, but another interesting semantic debate before coffeee, not good
#
[jgmac1106]
@sknebel I was just thinking when does a photo cross the line and deserve a title? IRL this is usually a debate of "is this art".......rabbit hole
#
sknebel
hm, that's an interesting perspective. I don't think I post enough photos for it to really have come up. and unclear if "title" in the post sense has to be "title" as in "I choose this explicit name for this image"
#
[jgmac1106]
but in terms of UI a photo on flickr always gets a title
#
[jgmac1106]
but the majority of titles are probably just the filename from the camera
#
[mrkrndvs]
There you go, just as I thought I was getting somewhere I opened another door and found something I thought I kind of got 🤷‍♂️

#
[jgmac1106]
isn't learning fun 👩‍🎓
#
petermolnar
I think that a "location name, time" is a good enought title for a photo
#
petermolnar
and it even makes sense
#
petermolnar
eg. "Cliffs of Dover, 1970-01-01"
#
petermolnar
there's no need to add fancy, "artsy" titles
#
petermolnar
you can, if you want though

I have been playing with my CC Flickr Attribution tools tool add the "correct" mf2 is how it spit out before <a title="love" href="https://flickr.com/photos/laurens_pix/2309443722">love</a> flickr photo by <a href="https://flickr.com/people/laurens_pix">{faithhopelove}</a> shared under a <a href="https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.0/">Creative Commons (BY-NC-ND) license</a> </small>..needed to add an hcard for the author, p-name fo
#
[jgmac1106]
use u-photo, add license, almost got me stuck back into trying to do academic references again
#
[jgmac1106]
so I gave up and said, well as long as the post is wrapped in hentry
#
[jgmac1106]
thats what I care more about, correctly attributing others photos rather than sharing my own
#
petermolnar
[kevinmarks]: date is simple, use the exif date; location, now that's the big question
#
[jgmac1106]
wow [kevinmarks] you son is a spitting image
#
petermolnar
if there's geodata in the exif, the quess might make sense, otherwise yes, you have to write it by hand
#
[jgmac1106]
I use Google Photos as well for memories, never did Flickr, but I like all the machine learning stuff it does to my photos, for my sons pitching I take burst photos and hope to end up with a gif
