Live coding screencasts are way more awesome when the text can be copied. asciinema makes this possible.

The ability to copy and paste from video like this is tremendously awesome! Because it’s text-based, it also looks like I can annotate it with Hypothes.is too. Example: https://hyp.is/-Ay6wD7nEemnq3uyMRrhrA/asciinema.org/a/3uHCusbqQd6KAYNZ15NSv21bQ

This could be an awesome teaching tool, particularly for programming.

Reminder: IndieWebCamp Austin (& streaming) is this Weekend 2/23-24

Here’s a quick reminder that IndieWebCamp Austin is this weekend. If you’re in the , , or spaces and can’t attend in person, there should be some interesting conversations and work that can be done to participate remotely (via chat, video, etc.) to help you improve and better use your personal website.

We welcome anyone who is interested, so feel free to pass the invitation along to your colleagues, students, and friends who are interested in using their websites as more than “just a business card” or “just a blog”. Even if you don’t yet have a domain or web hosting, show up and we’ll see what we can help you create over the weekend. 

Feel free to come with ideas, propose an online session (maybe?!!), or just watch, listen, and absorb ideas from others. Find out more about what you can do with a simple domain name and website.

Perhaps sometime in the future we ought to have an IndieWebCamp specifically for the education space?! Let me know if you’re interested in helping to organize one.

Of course if you can’t join us this weekend, there is an IndieWebCamp Online coming up on 

Don’t worry if you can’t RSVP this late, just show up… We all hope to see you there!

📅 RSVP for IndieWebCamp Austin 2019

RSVPed Attending IndieWebCamp Austin - Feb 23-24, 2019 - Austin, Texas
IndieWebCamp Austin 2019 is a gathering for independent web creators of all kinds, from graphic artists, to designers, UX engineers, coders, hackers, to share ideas, actively work on creating for their own personal websites, and build upon each others creations.

I’ve desperately been wanting to go since it was announced, but sadly the best I’ll be able to do this weekend is attend virtually. While I won’t be able to see people in person, I’ll be there in chat, watching the streaming video and supporting everyone. 

If you’re planning on going and need any help/advice with getting WordPress going this weekend, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Special thanks to organizers Manton and Tantek and all the other fantastic community members who are putting this together!

Over the weekend we hosted the first IndieWebCamp in Austin. I’m really happy with the way the event came together. I learned a lot in helping plan it, made a few mistakes that we can improve next time, but overall came away as inspired as ever to keep improving Micro.blog so that it’s a standout platform of the IndieWeb movement. There’s nothing like meeting in person with other members of the community. I know this from attending Apple developer conferences, but the weekend in Austin only underscored that I should be more active in the larger web community as well.
