2022/Pop-ups/Sessions

From IndieWeb
Jump to: navigation, search

If you're interested in hosting a pop-up session, feel free to use this page to brainstorm or flesh out your event(s), or ask for help in the IndieWeb chat.

If you instead want to see a session happen or want someone else to host a session on a topic, please bring it up in IndieWeb chat and see if you can find someone interested to host (and have them add it to the wiki instead of you).

The session planning/development progresses on this page, by trying to get a core group of individuals who advise availability and interest, with sufficient time for others to join as well.

Once you confirm a date, please create an event on events.indieweb.org with the tag "popup", and create a page for session notes on the wiki, for example 2020/Pop-ups/GettingStartedWithWordPress. See our guidance for organizing pop-ups.

There is also a list of potential sessions that were held over in 2020 which may make interesting sessions for the future.

An incomplete list of holidays and other nearby events can be found on the planning page to help prevent scheduling conflicts.

Microformats Roundtable

Let's work through and discuss some of the open Microformats issue trackers. The proposal is to schedule 60, 90, or 120 minutes at a regular interval, either every month, every other month, or every 3 months, so we can finally address some of the long-standing microformats issues we have in the community. If we choose an alternating schedule, we can have different people from our various timezones each time.

Proposed:

  • Name: Microformats Popup: Microformats2 Issues Resolution Session
  • Description: (draft, feel free to edit/improve)

    Designed for humans first and machines second, microformats are a set of simple, open data formats built upon existing and widely adopted standards.

    Let's discuss how we can close out some outstanding microformats2 issues.

    This is an intermediate session, with a prerequisite of basic knowledge of HTML and microformats. Experience with publishing and/or parsing is a plus. All are welcome.

    More details will be posted over time

Pipes

There are a number of common pieces of functionality that are shared across IndieWeb services, such as a means to provide /reply-context.

We can do this using i.e. a shared Python library, but it leads to be language-specific, and can't be used for folks in different tech stacks.

Instead, we can provide common HTTP-based services - perhaps backed by these shared libraries - to provide language-agnostic tools.

These services are pipes, and during this pop-up, let's discuss some of the existing services, as well as brainstorm some alternatives that we as a community want to go after.

InDWeb

Using DWeb tech on the IndieWeb. How can one leverage Tor/IPFS/Hypercore/Braid(OT/CRDT) on their website today? Also, a crash course of IW building blocks for people coming from the DWeb and an appeal to cross-pollinate by prototyping from your own site.

Personal Site Search

How can personal websites leverage search to provide a better experience to their users? What are the benefits and tradeoffs of deferring site search to an external provider like Google or DuckDuckGo versus building one's own personal search engine? What features should a personal search engine have? These are questions we would like to discuss in the Personal Site Search Pop Up.

This session is a place for anyone who owns a personal site, or who is interested in personal sites, to come and discuss web search in the context of their site.

Organizers

To discuss how we will decide to restart in-person events, reflect on how the online only model has worked for us, and other outstanding organizers issues.

Not sure if this is for you? See Organizers for a brief description of who is an IndieWeb organizer (changes every year!)

Positive Arguments

Many reasons we share to join the IndieWeb are negative, focused on why the corporate web is bad. In 2021, a lot of people are aware of the problems with corporate sites, but may see no other option, so could a perspective shift to focus on the positive attributes of the IndieWeb encourage more to join?

The goal of the session would be to discuss which parts of a 2012 discussion about positive arguments for the IndieWeb are still relevant, which might have gone stale, and if there's anything missing, add it, while making the page into a bit nicer to read. Additionally I'd like to add the topic of "self expression" is essentially missing from the wiki. We're in 2022, and communities like Yesterweb are gaining a lot of traction, because they focus on the same aspects as what made the web a hobby in the 90s and the early 2000s: freedom of (artistic) expression, having a home on the net, a custom representation of one's self. The epitome of this was probably Flash, the most popular of it was MySpace profiles, and I'm starting to believe that we're losing this from the web, and it was never a strong point in IndieWeb.

  • Tracy Durnell - interested in this from a marketing perspective, and maybe talking about whether / how self-expression and the "weird web" connect with a DIY / handmade ethos (webpunk?) and aesthetic
  • David Shanske
  • Binyamin Green - It's entirely possible to shift perspective, within the current set of arguments. Similar to Tracy, I'd like to see about improving PR for the IndieWeb.
  • Jacky Alciné
    • I'm interested to see how we can do a more-pro versus "ugh, the cons" and even weave that into our sites
  • Chris Lott
  • Add yourself here… (see this for more details)

Displaying Responses and Features

Incorporating aesthetics and functionality for displaying responses and quotes from other sites on our websites. (Less about the technical how-to, more about interpersonal considerations and user-friendly styling.) Some ideas:

  • how to display homepage mentions
  • how to style webmentions (e.g. do you want posts from people you know to show up differently?)
  • how to display a blogroll
  • how to style 'quotes' for different post kinds

Meta Gardening / Collective Community Science Online

Looking at the big picture of the personal website / blog ecosystem: what is made possible with our websites en masse? What could our websites contribute? There are community science apps and websites people can contribute to, is there an IndieWeb way to participate? It can be hard to find useful gardening information and learn from others' experience and wisdom.

  • ways to collate observational data from many websites for scientific use?
  • using microformats to mark up observational data and gardening info (e.g. companion planting)
  • collecting microclimate data corresponding to natural phenomena (phenology) - is this useful if collected in a standardized format by many bloggers in many places? is this useful to track for climate change?
  • how can we track our own gardening info in a way that's useful for ourselves, and others? (e.g. varieties, timing, companion planting, style of gardening, etc. to make planting decisions easier next year)
  • ways to exchange gardening advice on our websites

Personal websites as productivity tools

How can, and do, people use their websites as productivity tools or to increase their effectiveness? What systems and processes do people use to get the most out of their site?

Types of productivity and personal growth people probably use their websites for:

  • Tracking - quantified self
  • Task management - replacement for apps?
  • Learning / knowledge management - digital gardens
  • Accountability - personal reviews
