Thoughts on hosting an IndieWebCamp Pop-up Session

A few weeks back, I hosted a stand alone IndieWebCamp pop-up session. I had promised to scribble down some thoughts about the process and how it might be improved based on my experience. If anyone else has thoughts on how it went or how future events like this could be improved, I'd love to read…

A short post mortem, video and note links, and challenge from The Garden and the Stream IndieWebCamp Pop-up session

Thank you everyone! For those who attended yesterday's The Garden and the Stream IndieWebCamp session, thank you for participating! I honestly only expected 4 or 5 wiki fans to show up, so I was overwhelmed with the crowd that magically appeared from across multiple countries and timezones. I've heard from many--both during the session and…

Gardens and Streams: Wikis, Blogs, and UI—a pop up IndieWebCamp session

There has been some sporadic conversation about doing impromptu IndieWebCamp sessions and thus far we've yet to organize one. Given our physical distancing and the dearth of bigger IndieWebCamps, I thought I would propose this single topic stand alone camp session to get something rolling. I'd invite others to propose and schedule others in the…

Review of Typlog as a turnkey platform for IndieWeb as a Service

Yesterday I ran across a tweet in the IndieWeb chat announcing that Typlog, a hosted website/blogging platform, now supports Webmention. Webmention is supported on Typlog now: https://t.co/iiY5SgWssf — Typlog (@typlog) March 30, 2020 I looked at their website, and it also looks like they support a few other IndieWeb building blocks including WebSub and RelMeAuth…

IndieWeb idea for the extension of ThreadReaderApp

I'd love it if ThreadReaderApp had the ability to authenticate into my personal website and publish a copy of my own tweetstorms into my blog using Micropub.  This would be a great way to leverage their existing infrastructure and to allow people to put their own Tweetstorms onto their blog and solve the perennial "Why…

Improving the WordPress documentation on the IndieWeb Wiki

I had started it in November 2018, but today I spent a several hours to do some additional documentation and finally migrate the changes and updates to the WordPress pages on the IndieWeb wiki. The biggest set of changes is for the Getting Started on WordPress page which is hopefully simpler and clearer for the…

Narwhal Microblog Plugin for WordPress: Quickly Posting Notes to your IndieWeb Site

This morning, after reading a brief, but interesting snippet in the IndieWeb WordPress chat from last night, David Shanske made me think about an old itch I had to have a quicker and more stripped down posting interface for notes on my website. I immediately thought of WordPress's P2 and 02 themes/products which had a…

Read Ditching Event Platforms for the IndieWeb by Jamie Tanna (jvt.me)
Recently there's been a big shift to move away from Meetup.com as a platform. Something that may come as a shock to most attendees of events is that organisers have to pay for each of you to be part of the Meetup group, even if you are just there to keep up to date on events, but don't attend anything.
