Interesting insights from @anomalily re: being a "Generation 2" #IndieWeb participant. How can we Gen 1'ers enable her?
Now @anomalily is sharing how she uses @WordPress as a great way to be a part of the #IndieWeb @IWS2017.
I have arrived at Mozilla Portland for the 2017 IndieWeb Summit. Huzzah!
Off to PDX for IndieWeb Summit 2017! Looking forward to building on the open web. ✊🏻🎉
Also pondering how to best present @-mentions across the IndieWeb and how they should be represented in Micro.blog. Curious to hear your thoughts, @Manton. Thinking my extensions to JSON Feed may be useful, here...
@Kraft great to have you involved! It was good to hear @photomatt's views at WCEU. I think WP can and should lead by example in IndieWeb. But, it's going to take movement in core and Jetpack!
@www.altplatform.org/author/ricmac/ exciting, feel free to reach out if you need any guidance. We're a happy and friendly bunch in the IndieWeb IRC/Slack channels, too. Thanks as well for the mention of my website :)
Well put, Colin. A platform like Micro.blog has a great deal of potential to advance the adoption of IndieWeb building blocks like Micropub, IndieAuth, Webmention, and mf2, even if the users of Micro.blog don't know or understand any of the underlying foundations. Why? User experience! Micro.blog is simply leveraging IndieWeb technology and standards to build a platform that makes users happy.
While Micro.blog is a great step forward for the IndieWeb, I still believe that the holy grail is getting native support for IndieWeb deep within WordPress core, including broad support from themes. WordPress runs over 28% of all websites, and IndieWeb support in core could be the tipping point for broad adoption.
