rename to indieweb

Main article: rename to IndieWeb
  • Aaron Parecki (for Ben Roberts) Rename main IndieWebCamp identity to "IndieWeb" - indiewebcamp.com redirect to indieweb.org, change IRC channel from #indiewebcamp to #indieweb and other related #indieweb-* channels. Maybe keep a separate channel for logs of camps and HWCs so as not to make it difficult for people to read when there is a camp going on (i'm probably going too far with that). All channels being bridged between slack would be nice as well.
    • +1 Aaron Parecki
    • Michael Bishop potentially move Loqi notifications regarding wiki edits to -dev or some other internal channel. Also think about testing wiki definitions outside of main channel. I would also suggest thinking about the retweets and other automated messages in the channel intended for newcomers be minimized if possible.
  • ...


  • create a new page with the proposal and details
  • encourage +1/0/-1 on the proposal (like we did with the logo)
  • goal: flip the switch on 2016-07-04


  • Shane Becker #homepage: Outside of the scope of the newskin, I think we can make the homepage better or redesign it altogether.
    • +1 gRegor Morrill
    • +1 Kyle Mahan
    • +1 Aaron Parecki I support this, but it's a dangerous rabbit hole to go down, and likely requires more time than a single session at this event. Maybe we can come up with some goals for what a new homepage should do as an outcome of this discussion.
