Homebrew Website Club

Tantek Çelik:

welcome to homebrew website club SF - June was very eventful; this month we moved to http://indieweb.org

so if you go to indiewebcamp.com now you will get redirected to indieweb.org which looks less like a wiki

this is the result of a lot of work by people filing issues and edit the homepage - see the history https://indieweb.org/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page&action=history

this is a huge improvement over what we had before, especially on mobile

we made the call to action clearer, and simplified the events sections

also, the chat logging has been updated- to chat go to indiewebcamp.com/irc/today#bottom - to read chat got to https://chat.indieweb.org/

we have move the more developer-related discussion to https://chat.indieweb.org/dev/

wiki notifications moved to the dev channel, along with the protocol notifcations about webmention etc to dev

related channels on microformats, bridgy and known are also show in the chat log page

if a tab you are not in has an update the tab turns yellow

if you have any suggestions to improve the homepage further there is a github issues link: https://github.com/indieweb/wiki/issues

Indiewebcamp Brighton is confirmed for September 24-25 https://indieweb.org/2016/Brighton

Joe Nelson:

I gave up twitter and move back to the original social network, email

I wrote a post about setting up and understanding DNS and securing it https://begriffs.com/posts/2016-07-08-returning-original-social-network.html

you can set up SPF, DKIM and DMARC records in your DNS to secure your own email

Email I affectionately call the “cockroach of the internet,” because it is older than the web yet we still use it

I'm now wondering if I should set up a usenet server too, as that is even more decentralized than email

I can see how gmail makes thing more easy, but you can be penalised for good behaviour like unsubscribe headers

Tantek Çelik:

thanks Joe, you should add yourself to the https://indieweb.org/silo-quits page for leaving twitter

I finally got around to blogging the text version of the keynote I gave at the indieweb summit http://tantek.com/2016/190/b1/state-of-indieweb-summit

Joe Nelson:

do you have webmention on your site?

Tantek Çelik:

I have an rsvp on my site http://tantek.com/2016/194/t1/homebrew-website-club-mozsf that shows up on kevin's site http://known.kevinmarks.com/2016/homebrew-website-club-sf-2016-07-13

Joe Nelson:

haas there been much webmention spam?

Tantek Çelik:

so far only through backfed spam from twitter via brid.gy Vouch will help with that.

Kevin Marks:

you can set up dynamic webmentions on your static site with webmention.herokuapp.com

Tantek Çelik:

webmention is now a w3c candidate implemention - webmention.rocks has test for you to try and report to w3c

try your site with webmention.rocks then do an implementation report here https://github.com/w3c/webmention/tree/master/implementation-reports
