CidjjvnrefgA friend mentioned indieweb to me very recently. I’m a heavy Facebook and twitter user, I feel constrained by basic Wordpress blogs and I keep thinking to myself “I should have a weird little website”. However I don’t have much money and I have even less skills. Any general thoughts?
CidjjvnrefgI had a look at that once but it’s not really weird enough... still has the linear blog/twitter flow... which might be part of what I would like, but I’d also just like to have weird zones and galleries - like when you find a weird artist’s website and it’s just annoying and you close the tab.
LoqiNeoCities is a free website hosting silo in the spirit of defunct silo GeoCities (Yahoo shutdown in 2009) that looks like a stepping stone to getting started on the IndieWeb https://indieweb.org/NeoCities
CidjjvnrefgOoh thanks I haven’t heard of that. When I experimented with HTML around 2001 I was annoyed at how quickly things were changing. One minute your site was fine, the next your plugin whatever was insecure and hack able
CidjjvnrefgMoving sideways a bit - I was looking at Roam (roamresearch.com) and I like the idea of something networked and bi-directional linking, something emergent and less heirarchical. The same friend shared this with me: https://blog.jethro.dev/posts/introducing_org_roam/ how hardcore do you think this is for a total noob?
CidjjvnrefgIs there much out there that’s like store-bought indieweb? Or is that a contradiction? I suppose micro.blog is like what I mean. You can pay, get a service, not need to code, and still be off the corporate web
[g33kcentric]A question - If one were to start thinking about setting up a homebrew website club, where would you start, finding people, getting to know their technical experience etc, im a web developer by trade so the tech part is nay problem, but stereotypically the social side is, especially when you dont have any contacts in the area you live.
jamietanna[m][g33kcentric] I started one in Nottingham where we have a strong tech community, and I knew folks would be interested in it. I've had folks join us who've not been in the community up until then. Where abouts are you based?
[g33kcentric]In Woking Jamie, its just south of london, i know there is a homebrew club in London, but we are outside of it enough, for it to be a bit of a bark to get too, especially considering its one of the busiest train lines in the country!

KopsiI just asked in the #dev channel and was referred to this one: I am researching IndieWeb for my masters thesis and was curious, whether there have been any recent privacy/security surveys of it. Google hasn't provided any results regarding this, so i was curious, whether there was something unpublished or published in a way that couldn't be found by Google.
jamietanna[m][g33kcentric] what's the tech scene like in Woking? I'd definitely recommend setting one up - you don't need to do anything like getting official venues, mine is in the cafe area of a boardgame cafe. I'd say just see what happens. I get between 1 and 10 people regularly 🤷🏽♂️
Kopsi@jgmac1106 Right now I am deciding whether my focus will be on privacy or security. Both have different implications, however security can affect privacy more than vice-versa. Since I am slightly more experienced in the security area, I will probably focus on that, but I was wondering if someone had done research in that matter already before I invest time to just confirm earlier findings.
TheCondorIn this case it's not open source or open protocols, an indie dev decided to sell its software to the tech company X backed SV money. The tech company X continues to tell to everyone "we are indie developers" and raising money on Patreon or Paypal suggesting their customers and people on the web they are helping indie developers to pay the server costs.
[tantek]in short, we should document the explicit phenomenon / examples of posting on your own blog first, then syndicating to a group blog with a rel=canonical link back to your original, as a way of helping empower individuals to assert their rights as creators
@radiomorilloContent Pro-Tip: If you’ve written an article or blog post under your byline for a publication or a blog that’s not yours, save a PDF version of your article. Sites go down, links break, or they disappear. You want to preserve that work for the future! I just did this today. (twitter.com/_/status/1236708694928297986)
[tantek]lol [jgmac1106] next time you're encouraged to use Dublin Core, please ask them *why*, *who* consumes it?, *how* do they process the information?, *what* do they do with it?, *where* do they display the results?
@judell@jgmac1106 It's hard to reconstruct what happened here. One thing I've seen: a site uses rel="canonical" href="[RSS_feed]" on every page, making all pages aliases of one another. Unless you need rel="canonical" for SEO I'd leave it out and rely on DC:identifier. (twitter.com/_/status/1230564237157662723)
Loqi[Chris Aldrich] Clicking through to the photo, there is no mention of this image appearing on this important announcement. Perhaps the author privately contact the photographer about using his image. Since Ken Doctor is so incredible with his media experience (i’m...
