SVG is a legit way to make infographics
#
jgmac1106
agree…and I am partial to just CSS bc I am weird…but the infographic tools that exist…an html first version very possible
#
KartikPrabhu
HTML memes are harder to copy-paste
#
jgmac1106
feature not bug
#
[kevinmarks]
you can still shitpic SVG memes
#
jgmac1106
but yeah…I agree, still when I work with young teeenagers and introduce them to the web, I usually start with Mozilla x-ray and they make a fake news article about them selves…then I go into making meme…its a decent intro pathway into html that reflects their online culture
#
jgmac1106
but go and look at every infographic out there, it is a background img, and a bunch of numbers displayed on a grid…a html first infographic tool possible and can be an entry point like fake news and memes onto the web
#
jgmac1106
x-ray goggles they are called….usually have them find a local newspaper change headline, image, text..don’t realizie it but learn <h1> <img> <p> tags..then they make meme..and be all like , “Oh Snap” I built a web page

100% correct. An important read as I try to apply for grants to bring the #IndieWeb to schools to teach sourcing skills and argumentation. I firmly believe you can not know how truth gets shaped online until you shape your own. (http://jgregorymcverry.com/5723-2/)

↩️ I don't need to ask why to leave, but I should ask why to stay, as that can help offer suggestions on how to stay connected. For instance, using webmentions to stay connected to conversations via your website. Twitter is the big one on my list to fully switch to #IndieWeb

Shoutout to @indiewebcamp #indieweb from @jeckman. Smaller communities like this pushing for an open web. They need help bridging the gap w/ non-technical users. #wcpub
(twtr.io/1gvtv00Ybyh)
#
@ChrisHardie
Appreciate @jeckman noting that nostalgic calls to “return to the open web” are sometimes referencing an experience that wasn’t inclusive or diverse. Even movements like @indiewebcamp @decentralweb may appeal mostly to technical tinkerers. #wcpub

@voxpelli
↩️ We don’t need yet another monoculture and I disagree that federated social is the given path. Mastodon is doing a good job, but so is eg. the IndieWeb community and the specs they make enables everyone to own their own web presence, rather than an account on a federated instance

#
@voxpelli
↩️ Of course Mastodon can be part of an IndieWeb future, but plurality and the possibility of a true indie presence are key to not again arrive with what we have today
(twtr.io/1gw31Jxr0Z4)
#
@voxpelli
↩️ The IndieWeb currently also breaks apart the different areas of responsibility in a way that I so far haven’t seen Mastodon do. In the IndieWeb you can have one application for posting content, one for hosting your content and presenting it to the world, a third to read posts etc

@voxpelli
↩️ Breaking it apart in such a way has enabled individuals within the IndieWeb community to each on their own, or in smaller groups, become expert within one or a few of those areas and build really excellent tools without having to also consider all the other aspects

voxpelli: snarfed left you a message on 2017-12-30 at 6:17pm UTC: hi! when you get a chance, mind counting the total number of valid webmention wm.herokuapp.com has received that aren't from bridgy? ie source domain isn't [www.]brid.gy or brid-gy.appspot.com. i'm hoping to roughly pinpoint when we hit 1M total wms. not urgent.

hi voxpelli!
#
[jgmac1106]
hey @voxpelli thx for the heads up on webmentions

voxpelli
Yikes, sorry for not responding in a timely manner to that ping snarfed!

ha ha, I wonder what the longest !tell is
#
voxpelli
[jgmac1106]: you’re welcome! I’m long overdue with some updates to that endpoint and with that the opening of some new accounts on the hosted instance
#
voxpelli
Personal life in combination with work life has kept me away from this community for a far too long time :/
#
[jgmac1106]
yeah trying to see if I can replace the overly complex #OpenBadges spec with two webmentions.
#
voxpelli
[jgmac1106]: cool! Feel free to open a brainstorm issue about that as well if you wasn’t to figure out how that would work with my endpoint
#
[jgmac1106]
there is already an open issue, but that was about enabling indielogin and self hosting
#
voxpelli
Right, yeah, either comment on that or reference it from a new ticket, I’m not so picky, just glad that I get feedback :)
