4. I signed up for a pilot account immediately. There were a host of apps to experiment with. I was particularly delighted to hear that I’d finally have institutional space and easy to use WordPress to run #10DoT https://10daysoftwitter.wordpress.com/ #pressedconf18

I’ve done something similar to #10DoT for independent authors before to promote their books, but it could also be an interesting model for helping people to set up #IndieWeb or #DoOO websites as well.

The underlying idea is also reminiscent of some strong advice to a beginner I saw in the IndieWeb chat last week: “Start small, then make incremental steps. Don’t eat the whale all at once.” – Scott Merrill

And then, just as I’m about to make this post and syndicate it out, I notice that Taylor Jaydin is doing something similar as an in-person laboratory for their #DoOO project:

This Open Domains Lab sounds very similar in nature to the long-running Homebrew Website Club concept.  It makes me wonder if we couldn’t help to better dovetail some of the IndieWeb and DoOO communities’ efforts? Perhaps we could utilize pieces of the IndieWeb wiki like IndieWeb for Education, DoOO, or similar pages. Perhaps the IndieWeb community might consider sucking the #DoOO hashtag into the chat there as well? If Taylor is open to it, perhaps it’s worth listing their Open Domains Lab on the IndieWeb wiki’s schedule of upcoming events? They might also use the IndieWeb chat functionality for the virtual portion of their program to increase interaction. I’d certainly welcome them to have interested parties stop by on either the wiki or via the simple-to-use webchat 24/7 if they need help, resources, or motivation of any kind.

Incidentally, I’ll note that Taylor very naturally POSSEd a copy of the post from his own website to https://knight.domains/thinkdeeper/open-domains-lab/ as well.

  1. @TaylorJadin You’ll notice their chat is bridged with multiple options for participation including a simple web interface, Slack, IRC, and Matrix. Individual users can chose which is best for their needs. Let me know if you need help.

  2. @TaylorJadin I’ll add it to the list and can help you log in to do so yourself for the future. I’ve also been planning on doing a virtual HWC meetup (via Google Hangouts) soon. Perhaps I can do one to coincide with your time on the 5th for those who are remote.
