Manton Reece

Manton Reece wants to work on micro.blog parsing webmentions to make sure there's nothing it missed, showing replies correctly, post-type-discovery type things

May follow up with some of the Micropub extension things discussed on day 1.

Aaron Parecki

Aaron Parecki was inspired by the payment session. Going to try to get the new Payment Request API working

Stretch goal: improve documentation on micropub requests. Create micropub examples for each type of posts, remove examples from Micropub and instead link to each individual section.

Tantek Çelik

Tantek Çelik wants to implement the number feature on his pay for requesting specific payment amounts (like Aaron Parecki's site)

Also would like to implement the Payment Request API from the perspective of someone who has never worked with Stripe.

Work on person-tag-of posts

Marty McGuire

Marty McGuire already did his first hack day project today. Made an IndieWeb workflow for Alfred to open wiki pages. https://martymcgui.re/2017/12/10/111432/

Other major thing he would like to do is work on the site-building parts of his static site. Would like to use more microtools that use building blocks like Micropub, Micropub edits, WebSub notifications.

Smaller goal will be to improve WebSub notifications

Tom Brown

Tom Brown is going to work on IndieAuth to add login to an existing project.

Chris Grayson

First thing he wanted to do was get IndieAuth working and he already did that, including pgp support.

Wants to see if he can get OwnYourGram working

David Shanske

David Shanske wants to work on posting bookmarks from his phone directly to his site.
