IndieWebCamp SF 2019
Session: Reputation & Subjective Web
When: 2019-12-07 13:45



  • There's a distrust on the web.
  • Why are you sharing what you're sharing? Are those real followers? Is it fake news?
  • It's extremely noisy online now
  • It would be nice to mark something as "out of band" e.g. if you're shitposting or just being silly.
    • example: Chris Aldrich has chicken posts which are goofy/silly and just can't be taken seriously. How could this be expanded upon? Snark-mark posts?
      • chicken is v srs bizness in 2019 #chickfila -- gRegor remote shitposting in the notes
  • On Twitter you can either be super professional and share one type of thing or...
    • You get this "ambient intimacy" following people online

Subjective Web

  • Think of the web as a world with mountains, rivers, forests
  • Now it feels like there's all this industrial pollution
  • There are people who learn how to work in this toxic place. You may not know if something is toxic before tasting it.
  • How can we create a subweb for people who are experienced in filtering this toxic world to bring good things?
    • Kind of like a closed subweb, modular. You can interact with a lot of subwebs.
  • There needs to be a way to "break out" and not be implicitly in these algorithmic feeds
