We had over 30 people across three offices and several remote locations attend the first @DreamHost Website Club! #IndieWeb
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! #Indieweb
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 - https://
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.
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.
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.
