Sifting through the notes and videos from #IndieWebCamp Austin, and really wishing I could have attended! Lots of awesome information and details. I'm especially interested in @manton's progress on Micro.blog. – https://indieweb.org/2017/Austin

Some great memories from my website's "On This Day" feature today – https://cleverdevil.io/onthisday/12/08 #indieweb #ownyourmemories

Congrats to @danielpunkass on the launch of the new MarsEdit! Support for Micro.blog is awesome. My request? Support for Micropub! I’d love to use MarsEdit to write status updates, bookmarks, likes, reposts, photos, and more on my #IndieWeb website 😀

Gave a shout out to #IndieWeb in the Q and A for @briannaorg’s talk. Looking forward to inviting more people into the IndieWeb community.

Own your digital legacy 😀

Really enjoying Brianna Privett’s talk at #WCUS about using @WordPress to own your digital presence. She uses the phrase “digital legacy,” which I adore! I wonder if @briannaorg knows about the #IndieWeb movement?

Using the Micro.blog macOS app in full screen, splitting a space with Tweetbot in multi-column mode, is a perfect way to enjoy the IndieWeb :)

I'm interested in engaging a @Discourse developer to work on implementing #IndieWeb standards in the platform. Ping me! RTs appreciated.

Enjoying the 2nd meeting of the @DreamHost Website Club! Nearly 20 attendees working on owning their digital presence. #IndieWeb

Hey, look who is a headline speaker for this year's World Hosting Days USA! #DreamHost #IndieWeb

Awesome article on Post Kinds in @WordPress by Chris Aldrich! - http://boffosocko.com/2017/08/11/post-kinds-plugin-for-wordpress/ #IndieWeb

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

Introduction to the IndieWeb

Fantastic introduction by Chris Aldrich.

My grill is now updating its own site via #micropub, posting to Twitter and Micro.blog. #Indieweb

IndieWeb Summit 2017 Recap

3 min read

On June 24-25, I attended my first ever IndieWeb Summit in Portland, Oregon. IWS is:

...an annual 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.

IWS 2017 was graciously hosted by Mozilla in their very cool Portland office, which provided fantastic video conferencing gear enabling people from around the world to join in. Day one kicked off with keynotes providing an overview of the IndieWeb, the state of the IndieWeb, and real-world examples of IndieWeb sites. Following the keynotes, attendees had an opportunity to introduce themselves and show a demo of their own personal websites. In my introduction, I showed off my On This Day implementation, along with a live demo of my website automatically logging when I watch media on my Plex server.

The group then adjourns for lunch, followed by a Barcamp-style scheduling session, where individuals can propose topics of conversation, where we quickly filled four tracks with amazing hour-long sessions for the day. Topics included WordPress, specialized Micropub clientspersonal website designs, voice and the IndieWeb, and a session that I proposed on creating a timeline for the open web. Every session was fun, engaging, and thought-provoking. In the evening, I joined a group of attendees for dinner and drinks, and then headed over to Ground Kontrol for some classic arcade games before calling it a night.

Day two gave attendees some time for hands-on assistance with their personal websites. I joined David Shanske and Ryan Barrett in leading a session to help people interesting in IndieWeb-ifying their WordPress websites. The afternoon was all about personal hack time and projects before we wrapped the day up with demos. I contributed a Micropub Media endpoint implementation to Known and then started working on a new Indie-reader called "together" with Grant Richmond and a few others. To wrap up, there was an afterparty at Voicebox Karaoke sponsored by DreamHost, which was an absolute blast.

I have attended many conferences over the years, and IndieWeb Summit 2017 was one of my all time favorites. Kudos to organizers Tantek Çelik and Aaron Parecki for doing an incredible job putting the event together. Everything was top notch!

Probably the best news of all is that nearly every moment of the event was recorded and posted online, along with detailed notes of each session. I've been catching up on sessions that I missed over the last few days, and my appreciation for the event is only growing.

Can't wait for next year!
