getting ready for Homebrew Website Club - our video link is too hard to configure
we should spend our time talking rather than doing IT
I'm Brian, I worked for USGS, got bored. now I'm building my own site, because making HTML from FORTRAN got old
I work at the Museum of Art, and I have an image for every object in the collection
I found it easier to scrape our own website to get the images than to work on internal politics
I have a little box called "Occupy Here" which creates a local network to upload and share
Occupy Here will connect to an uplink if there is one, if not it works locally as a host
Alan Kay started a new research lab with Vi Hart and some other interesting people
there was a Stanford vis group site based on census data that you could visualize. I want to do this with seismic data
Maps are what I'm most interested in; I want very specific comments with permalinks
After an earthquake the USGS updates the event
there a projects looking at getting reports form twitter- I'd like to mesh them all together
I'm just glad to not be using FORTRAN
I run a service called brid,gy check it out. I switched my personal site to SSL for everyone
mainly people who use privacy tools are a minority. We should make encryption the default
the more people using SSL, the less suspicious it is by default
for whatever stack you use, there is a write-up. You can get free certs for open source projects
there are good write-ups on the indiewebcamp wiki for Apache and nginx for SSL
turning on SSL is an hour to a half day of work, but it's a break from coding
I am intrigued by everything being a file, and how far I could push that
FreeMount https://github.com/jjuran/freemount is my codebase for distributing apps in file-based way
the bytecode I have selected is the Motorola 68K machine [sounds like QTOS - @peterkinoma]
they redefined the syllables to be pronounced by runes, and they built a system based on that
more of my code is up at http://www.metamage.com/ I plan to merge this into a useful git repo
I've been doing contract work at a law firm, and I need to find people who speak my language a bit more
It's been a culture shock moving here from Dallas, especially living in Marin County
I'd like to bring up webmentions of homepages
webmention is simplified pingback where you can tell if there is post, a reply, an RSVP etc.
webmentions have mostly been used for permalink to permalink, but we do mention people by name
on Twitter and Facebook you have mentions pages for when people refer to you
Invitations are interesting for this too - you can webmention their homepage to invite them
inviting people to a chatroom - mentioning them so they come to a place. would a webmention work?
would a webmention per message work, or is this for inviting them into a conversation?
webmention may be a bit heavyweight - it would work for starting a conversation
@aaronpk has built a model for keeping conversations live over websockets using replies
webmentions work as conversations between client and host? 2 hosts are involved
using webmention for email-like conversations could work, with address by url not email
what we're looking at with idno is that there are keys embedded in the page that can be used to sign
on the receiving side, none of us know what to do with homepage mentions
I have the backend for homepage mentions, but not the frontpage yet Sochi is keeping me busy
Happy 10th Birthday to microformats!
the problem with search engines is they have secret sauce and we don't know how it got there.
I've seen images show up from indieweb pages that are form other pages entirely
you can't run the silo's crawlers is the problem - adding Twitter cards to the Gallery is tricky
If you use a CDN, the tools don't always reflect your site well
we now have a lot of redundant data on our site fro twitter, facebook and google
how do you extend microformats? What if I want geopoints? - you can use gel lat long, structured address.
if we don't know how to do something, we look at published examples in the wold
a point with #microformats is that they are composable - you can add new elements
