Homebrew Website Club
I had a flurry of activity on my site this week https://kylewm.com - I updated my tweet shortener to autolink
it has a list of all the new TLDs as of Sunday by getting them from ICANN
I added .space for Lancey to my shortener too - I do it when someone has an indieweb site on a TLD that legitimises it
at first the new TLDs were a layer violation so eg .tel was for vcards
now the TLDs is a kind of passive aggressive takedown of large corporations, so apple had to get .apple
julien has river.news
the other thing I added was the etag/last-modified stuff prompted by @kevinmarks
you could also just statically generate your atom feed and serve that from the filesystem to get etag/last-modified
I'm realising that my hovercards are pretty inefficient as they are loading lots of iframes statically
so if I have a lot of back and forth discussion they get slow as there is one per hcard link form noterlive
indieweb updates this week: http://indiewebcamp.com/this-week/2015-09-18.html
one topic last week was abuse via bridgy as twitter via XOXO
the twitter API does not filter for blocks so you get all the noise in your feed
and also twitter doesn't filter your own page's comments for your blocks, so you don't see what others do
so my twitter URL is not me - I don't have agency over it as anyone can scribble on it by replying
we're documenting comment problems
as bridgy has access to your blocklist, so could in principle remove the replies you have blocked.
what if twitter refused to post replies that are from people who you have blocked?
on the indieweb when you post you think of the public of both the post and where it is POSSEd to
but someone who replies to it does not have the sense of the other publics if they just see the POSSE copy of it
I've had that happen - "why is there a picture of my cat on Google plus?"
bridgy is trying to tell if someone else mentions your site then it is probably not a POSSE copy
I started to document the specifications that we are implicitly building on at http://indiewebcamp.com/specifications
can we specify these tightly enough that we can have examples and tests for them?
yes, that is the hope that we can make them consistent between implementations
this is also a place to gather things that we can make consistent enough to submit to standards bodies
we need to think about possible dates for indiewebcamp SF this year https://indiewebcamp.com/2015/planning Nov 14-15?
we're talking about how to reach out to silos and monocultures to make them indieweb friendly and solve problems for them
our indieweb principles now go to 11, as I added Plurality https://indiewebcamp.com/plurality
