From IndieWeb
Jump to: navigation, search was set up on 2018-May-31. I've had the domain for awhile. The site is the minimal HTML to login with to this wiki, and begin a little indie web adventure.

  • Add the other fun stuff, micropub, pubsub, etc. etc. (still sorting it out)
  • author a 'social coding with IndieWeb' thinger which describes what a first-time pull-request sender should expect from IndieWeb (I am the least qualified pull-requester to write this at the moment)

Community Projects, Maybe Contribute

  • - remember my page address between steps
  • fix the trailing slash on my h-card not working as a representative h-card (perhaps by adjusting the WP plugin, perhaps by working with author(s) to improve the check -- must firstly determine what the spec says about trailing slash in this context

Tier-2 Itch

  • is there any activity around extending the HTML spec to include a _meta_ global attribute for elements? Anything similar (or previously shot down)? My specific use case: for the exclusive purpose of including machine-readable data. Contrast this with the current _class_ global attribute, which may or may not have machine-readable data there.

I stopped publishing original content online, other than some code, years ago. This includes all the social media stuffs, whether in silos or otherwise. I lately was reacquainted with the Fearfully Big one, to be an outreach channel for community organizations I enjoy (Rotary, and a Makerspace). My experience with that was disheartening -- everyone online but so few autodidacts! What are you guys doing with your time on here?!?! So … I was on hold for awhile.

I have more time lately and will do some in-the-open stuff again now. I'm reading terms of service for silo A, news about silo B and … no, just no. My pleasure is to produce original content on my own terms. Starting from scratch more or less (because it's hard lol). I'm very glad to find the IndieWebCamp community here.
