We had over 30 people across three offices and several remote locations attend the first @DreamHost Website Club!


Tomorrow is the first of many DreamHost Website Club meetings! Inspired by Homebrew Website Club, but for our employees to spend company time working on building their own websites. Should be exciting!


My grill is now updating its own site via , posting to Twitter and


Richard, it's early, but at last weekend's IndieWeb Summit in Portland, a small group of us started tinkering on what we hope could be the Timeline of the Open Web.

At this point, it's wireframing and prototyping, but check it out! We call it "together" and you can find more information on it on the IndieWeb wiki - - and on GitHub -

I believe that the what users will want isn't a traditional feed reader, but something more akin to the Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter timeline experience, but without nasty algorithms, ads, or surveillance capitalism.


I had an amazing time at . Excited for the future of the open web!


Excited for day two of ! Starting off by helping attendees get started with @WordPress and .


Used @Ipstenu's "Bury Your Queers" Alexa Skill as an example of amazing tech in this session!


Y'all, we're gonna build an WebRing.


Interesting insights from @anomalily re: being a "Generation 2" 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 @IWS2017. is getting a lot of love in @t's keynote at for launching native.


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 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! 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 :)


@kraft Yes please! I've wanted core IndieWeb support in @WordPress for years. Are you at ?


I'll be at @WCEurope next week. If you're in Paris, and want to meet up, let me know!


Well put, Colin. A platform like 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 don't know or understand any of the underlying foundations. Why? User experience! is simply leveraging IndieWeb technology and standards to build a platform that makes users happy.

While 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.
