An IndieWeb Podcast: Episode 0 “Considering the User”

An IndieWeb Podcast: Episode 0 "Considering the User"
This is a test or alpha episode of An Indieweb Podcast (working title).

In it, David Shanske and and I talk about a variety of Indieweb topics, with the theme of “Considering the User”, inspired by an article we were reading this week. Other topics include: home automation, generations, itches, Webmention, and some examples of the Post Kinds Plugin in practice (exercise, issues, chickens).

In the future we hope to have additional broad ranging conversations and perhaps interviews with others about various IndieWeb related topics.

Part of this is also an opportunity to improve audio post presentations on our websites over time. While David posted the “original” of this post on his site, I had to debate whether or not I would technically repost it or make an original of my own. Ultimately I opted for the latter.

David, by far the more veteran podcaster, deserves the lion’s share of the credit for his audio set up and recording facilities.

  1. I’ve been listening to the inaugural episode of the currently unnamed IndieWeb podcast this evening. The episode offers some great context about the history of the IndieWeb, specifically the WordPress plugins. I haven’t finished listening to the episode yet, but am excited to continue listening…especially since the conversation is partially orbiting one of my recent posts!
    I’ve got to go to sleep before I can finish listening, but I wanted to take a moment to send a quick thanks to Chris Aldrich and David Shanske for the great conversation, and to let them both know that I am 100% willing and excited to roll up my sleeves and help out with this! My professional background is mostly in front-end dev. and product design, so I can’t help but to think of the IndieWeb in those contexts.

    I really enjoyed this pilot episode! I was particularly interested in some of the discussion around annotations for audio. I think I’ll spend some time noodling on using Jon Udell’s clipping tool to generate shareable snippet URLs, and updating my webmention handling to try and turn mentions with media fragment timestamps into pretty annotations.
