Homebrew Website Club

Tantek Çelik:

welcome to homebrew website club!

I deployed https embeds of vimeo videos - when I post a note on my site it does an autoembed of the video

it uses their magic vimeo embed markup without doing any network queries

cassis autoembed is in my library cassis.js that compiles as PHP and JS

Kevin Marks:

we now have a python version of the cassis autoembed thanks to Kyle https://github.com/kylewm/cassis-autolink-py

Tantek Çelik:

Jay: what would it take for you to tweet from your own site like tantek.com

Jay Zalowitz:

why would you do it that way?

because that way I have more control over it

Tantek Çelik:

rather than use my website code I'd recommend using withknown.com - I've open sourced some of it as cassis.js

Jay Zalowitz:

the site I have that works best is http://setonia.com/

Eric A. Meyer:

I don't have much to say, I'm here to listen - I recently got my admins to fix my wordpress install

Kimberly Blessing:

my known site is kimberly.withknown,com -something is afoot at the circle K

Dan P. Gailey:

I'm still confused about indieweb vs corporate web - I read indiewebcamp.com about 10 minutes before i started

techendo was blogging for founders - and they were too busy, now it is bootcamp reviews

now working on channelpie which works on all my social systems

now I'm working on a robotics meetup and a way for bootstrappers to find money from smart investors

Tantek Çelik:

by corporate web we are referring to social media silos like facebook, twitter g+ instagram etc

rather than create an account on some corporation's site, have your own domain, but be able to do the same things

we do the things like tweets or likes or invites and rsvps on our sites, and send copies to the corporate sites

see http://indiewebcamp.com/site-deaths for all the corporate sites that have lost people's data

Jay Zalowitz:

why not use the blockchain?

Dan P. Gailey:

I don't like polluting the blockchain

we find tat urls and websites keep working

Tantek Çelik:

we find that URLs and websites keep working and other things don't

I can post an RSVP to my site and have a copy on facebook- it's peer to peer, but facebook is distribution

with indieweb we see these corporate silos as distribution mechanisms - we don't shun thme, we use thm

Kevin Marks:

also new is feverdream.herokuapp.com which lets you post to wordpress.com, tumblr and blogger using micropub

Tantek Çelik:

we figured out the likely candidate date for indiewebcamp 2015

we spend the first day starting with demos, then brainstorms. the 2nd day is a hack day, then it ends with new demos

last year we did indiewebcamp simultaneously in berlin, new york and portland

this year we're looking at July 11th and 12th in Portland, and potentially adding other cities in parallel

if anyone wants to do another location at the same time as Portland do please step up and make one on the wiki
