🇪🇺 Virtual HWC for anyone who either can’t make a regular in-person meeting or doesn’t yet have critical mass to host one in their area. Everyone of all levels is welcome to participate remotely! You don't even have to be in Europe. Hosted on the Mumble server.
Virtual on CEST.
- 17:30–19:30 CEST (15:30–17:30 UTC, 08:30–10:30 PDT)
Format: Because of the online voice chat medium, this HWC often becomes a free forum discussion about things that have been happening on the IndieWeb and the internet in general.
- This week’s topic: Whatever you would like it to be.
- … (add your own!)

Some of the topics we talked about:
- WordPress and titles when POSSE to silos; needs to be more workable.
- Problems with Post-Kinds and replying to a post
- jgmac1106 showed us how to go to Screen Options and tick Response Properties
- Then we talked about (human) languages for a bit.
- jgmac1106 explained about his learning of CSS and his continuing experiments with WP.
- Some discussion of CSS for different viewports.
- And the use of Retina images.
- The future of Known and more generally the desire for a turnkey IndieWeb solution.
- Talked about 10Cv5 a bit and micro.blog. No one solution will suit everybody.
- General agreement that Manton targetted a niche market and delivered what that market by and large wanted.
- People who want more out of their identity online will want more than micro.blog.
- Possibility of funding an update of Known.
- Many people want a social community, which places a value on being able to feed to micro.blog and elsewhere.
- IndieWeb focussed readers will make a huge difference.
- Discovery in a global timeline can be useful, although many people do not use it.
- somewhat open problem: Tags & discovery of others using them
- Bring back Technorati!
- stream.indieweb.org vs news.indieweb.org, limits
- tag aggregation that survives service failures?
