The IndieWeb is a thing! They’ve got a conference coming up and everything. The New Yorker is even writing about it

I guess that’s what’s so cool about all this IndieWeb stuff. Like a Progressive Web App, every step you take towards it is useful. The more people that do it, the better it gets for everyone, but it’s useful anyway.

I thought that was rather well put. Every so often, I wonder if my rather casual effort is worth it. The idea that ‘every little counts’ is welcome.

@johnjohnston getting mad love in the #IndieWeb summit for all of his Flickr tools as we think about making trip tracking posts.

Thanks Greg, I presume the walkmaps. I have hope to build different views of these and eventually to bring them into WordPress in someway. What I like about flickr is that its API is easy for amateurs to play with. Amazing resource.

Now imagine, for a moment, an environment where a decentralized fabric of connected personal sites allows everyone to publish their own content but also enables each individual to engage in an open discussion – answering, challenging, and acknowledging the ideas of others through this universe of personal sites.

Comprehensive discussion of the ins and outs of running your own website from an IndieWeb perspective.

I’ve been dipping my toes into IndieWeb principles  for the past few years I hope this is the direction the internet is going.

Since my blog go updated and https is turned on I can expand my IndieWeb experiments a little.

The updates allow me to use my blog to sign on to other services. I am unsure of how this all work, but it akin to using facebook, twitter or google accounts to sign on to various services.

I’ve set up an account on aperture which is the first bit of a reader app, I then can use Microsub clients like Indigenous for iOS, Together and monocle to read and respond to these article, the responses will be posted through on my own blog.

For now I’ve only got a few sites flowing through aperture and I am unsure where this sits with my rss reading. I’ve made a few posts through the readers, with varying degrees of success. Certainly worth continuing with. Some of the services are in Beta mode, but because it all happens through my blog I will not lose any content that I create.

"15. Thank you for being here. And maybe the next time you present some information, share it with a nice little WordPress website and see how it goes! Oh yeah, if you want to see this presentation on a WordPress site, here you go: https://t.co/vT8Fe2m9Xn #pressEDconf19… https://t.co/l0qvy2SSuP"

WordPress for presentations is a great idea. I couldn’t follow live so appreciate this more than a pp. WordPress can post replies to tweets too;-) #pressEDconf19 #IndieWeb

Bookmarked Nothing Fails Like Success by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (Read Write Collect)

Jeffery Zeldman argues that in being unable to pay mortgage associated with the web, we have become indebted to the mob that is platform capitalism. This has led us into the money trap, which demands unrealistic rewards that care more about clicks than community. Zeldman’s suggestion on how to fix…

Aaron points to Nothing Fails Like Success (A List Apart).  

Aaron links to several fellow travellers reactions that make great reading too.

Aaron’s own blogging has gone a long way along the IndieWeb path and is a excellent one to follow.
