Attendee Introductions at IndieWeb Summit 2017.
Remote attendees introduced themselves in chat.
I'm Sven (sknebel), http://svenknebel.de/. I'm writing my own blog system and currently struggling with "what do I actually want to use it for?". Also currently working on Kaja, IRC/wiki-editing bot. help run HWC Berlin
I'm Sebastiaan Andeweg, http://seblog.nl/. I've had my domain for a long time, but it has been silent for quite a while and I'm glad to have IndieWeb make it noisy again :) using a modified Kirby CMS now.
I'm Mark Hendrickson, http://markmhendrickson.com, a designer / developer / PM for startups originally from San Francisco but now living in Barcelona, Spain for a few years now. My main IndieWeb project is Neotoma (https://github.com/neotoma), a PESOS-style consumer app to empower users to easily sync all of their silo data historically and going forward to their cloud storage of choice (Dropbox etc).
Martijn van der Ven
I’m Martijn van der Ven, http://vanderven.se/martijn/. I am probably better known as just Zegnat here on the chat. I have a task list up on http://wiki.zegnat.net/iws-task-list for this weekend. I also host the Virtual Homebrew Website Club on CEST time (upcoming Wednesday people!)
Planning to do a lot of community wrangling and outreach to organisers, so if that is something you are interested in helping with hit me.
I’m Calum Ryan, http://calumryan.com. I’ve written my own CMS in PHP for notes and IndieWeb features like sending Webmentions and Micropub for Instagram/Swarm. The rest of my site containing blog posts is rendered in Jekyll. I’ve organised Homebrew Website Club London for the past year
Hi I'm Kyle Mahan, https://kylewm.com. I've been AWOL for a while, catching up on what's going on in the community :) Good to see you all, albeit remotely. Exciting to see many people I don't recognize.
I’m Jonny Barnes, my site is at http://jonnybarnes.uk, it's written with the Laravel framework. Just recently got my micropub endpoint to work with OwnYourSwarm and OwnYourGram, though I need to fix the published date for ownyourswarm, I’ll checkin somewhere with the Swarm app, then goto my site and see the post say it happened “58 minutes from now”
Hi! I'm Aaron, http://aaroncommand.com.
- Hybrid dev/biz guy. Founded a WordPress dev agency and a travel site.
- "Gen 1"
- Found out about IndieWeb this year through media coverage and Tantek, very exciting. Currently in info-absorbing mode.
- Conference goal: learn more, launch a personal Indiewebified WP site, and stop posting to Facebook directly.
- The challenge that excites me the most: pushing this stuff out to Gens 3 and 4
- Also, resident in Bangkok where it's 2am. So likely to pass out before the day ends 😛
