[manton]Curious if [aaronpk] or anyone has feedback about this… After talking to another developer who wasn’t familiar with IndieAuth, I decided to write a help page from the perspective of thinking in OAuth when using Micro.blog.

Loqi👃 follow your nose is an intentional local & web-centric methodology for designing discovery algorithms that start with a specific URL that to discover things about, inspecting its contents, often for specific hyperlink rel values to predictably discover information about & resources for that URL, in contrast to the “well-known” approach of instead checking outside that URL, like using only its domain with a hardcoded path https://indieweb.org/follow_your_nose

[tantek]capjamesg re: link discovery, not from the summary/description, and not going to watch a video to answer a question. if there's a text transcript you can point to that would make it easier to evaluate.
