IndieWeb Summit 2019
Session: Temporary/Ephemeral Identities
When: 2019-06-29 16:10



  • Participate in the IndieWeb without defining your identity by having a site?
  • GPDR- right to be forgotten - how do you get forgotten when your posts all got syndicated out all over the place?
  • Maintaining multiple identities, like "fandom trash" versus "less trash"
  • What do you do when you need to move your identity somewhere else? How do you move your identity from place to place. rel=me's can be flakey.
  • IndieWiki requires a domain name. It used to allow OpenID but it switched to IndieAuth.
  • Creators need to own their content. Can IndieWeb provide support or an easier way to begin to start making it easier for Creators to get started?
  • Posts that are more ephemeral that exist on Patreon. If Patreon disappears, what happens to their content.
  • A need to move content onto your own site.
  • What is needed to own the space for your community?
  • OAuth / Membership List (Patrons) = Patreon
  • Community = Discourse
  • Content/Distribution = i.e Podcast, Images


  • Expiry dates in the protocol.
  • Redirects from former domain to new domain
