just got the new Twitter desktop web UI - a bit weird/janky but feels simpler

[tantek]
especially once I narrow the window to get rid of the right column

#
[Michael_Beckwit
promoted/sponsored content is the sludge of social media

What is archive
#
Loqi
archive in the context of the indieweb refers to date-grouped (often monthly) sets of posts (AKA personal historical archives, a common form of navigation), but can sometimes mean archival copy, a copy of a web page made (often by someone other than the author) at a particular point in time https://indieweb.org/archive
#
j4y_funabashi[m]
What is summary
#
Loqi
A summary is short text that conveys a post's main point(s), a small representative section, a post excerpt, or a plain text equivalent for kinds of posts like likes and RSVPs that use other properties to convey their meaning https://indieweb.org/summary
#
nikivi
what is this group for, Im a bit confused
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "this group for, Im a bit confused" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "this group for, Im a bit confused is ____", a sentence describing the term)

#
[jgmac1106]
welcome nikivi
#
[jgmac1106]
this group is for people who like playing around and hacking ont heir website in order to help build a better web
#
[jgmac1106]
and sorry for the strange bot response, if you want to ask about on the page on the wiki "What is," is a trigger. Then if there is no page you are prompted to make one
#
[jgmac1106]
What is IndieWeb?
#
Loqi
The IndieWeb is a community of individual personal websites, connected by simple standards, based on the principles of owning your domain, using it as your primary identity, to publish on your own site (optionally syndicate elsewhere), and own your data https://indieweb.org/IndieWeb
#
j4y_funabashi[m]
what is aggregate?
#
Loqi
aggregate is an overly formal way of saying collect or make a list, and like method, should be avoided in indieweb wiki page definitions; sometimes aggregate refers to what an aggregator does https://indieweb.org/aggregate
#
nikivi

#
nikivi

#
[jgmac1106]

#
Loqi
Join us for an evening of IndieWeb personal site demos and discussions! Any questions? Ask in the chatroom! More… https://indieweb.org/next-hwc
#
nikivi
so maybe its relevant :D
#
[jgmac1106]
I have an open source course template I am building so yeah it is relevant
#
Loqi
hey j4y_funabashi[m], [jgmac1106], we try to keep dev talk out of this channel, can you move to #indieweb-dev?
#
[jgmac1106]
Here are all the meet-ups: https://indieweb.org/Events
#
j4y_funabashi[m]
hmm wonder what triggered Loqi there?
#
[jgmac1106]
I know [KevinMarks] and [calumryan] organize a London HWC event every so often
#
[jgmac1106]
we try to keep jargon out of the main channel, my guess word template did ut
#
[jgmac1106]
nikivi IWC Brigthon is coming up in October right before MozFest...def go to MozFest... https://indieweb.org/2019/Brighton but any more event related questions we may want to head to #meta channel
#
[jgmac1106]
What is discuss?
#
Loqi
Join the #indieweb discussions via the web, Slack, IRC, or Matrix interfaces now with additional channels for dev, wordpress, and meta specific chat! https://indieweb.org/discuss
#
[jgmac1106]
no, but I believe there have been presentations there
#
[jgmac1106]
we are associated with no group, want to be IndieWeb? Have a personal website, that makes you a member and includes all the rank and privileges associated with the joys of your own website
#
[jgmac1106]
happy to talk in #chat or #dev about what others have been doing around curated learning pathways, been involved in Open Badges for long time,

HWC London is next week, every 2 weeks
#
[KevinMarks]
Calum organises it, I drop in if I'm in London that week
#
[jgmac1106]
I like the search and discovery idea for "Learn Anything" part of the reason I turned to IndieWeb for my open source stuff is I didn't like the nondirection OER was doing in terms of schema and discoverability
#
[jgmac1106]
while having a website is IndieWeb enough many of us add additional building blocks to make our sites more connected.
#
[jgmac1106]
these building blocks are all organized around a bit of data in your HTML called microformats, huge learning potential....any more discussion would be too in depth and should move to #dev
