@wimleers @Google @drupal @timmillwood I remember doing an presentation at DrupalCamp LA a couple of years ago right after a Piwik (@matomo_org) talk and it seemed like an interesting solution at the time.

Something about his website makes me think that @weslinda might appreciate Homebrew Website Club in Baltimore next week: https://indieweb.org/events/2018-02-20-homebrew-website-club

 

@scottedwards200 Free business idea: solution for @DoorDash, @Postmates, et al. perhaps with a progressive web app?
Restaurants already have a website, a payroll, and the rest of the overhead. What value are these companies really adding? should be easier.

 

That's a great Christmas present. Congratulations! https://twitter.com/evrenk/status/959148056766754816?s=09

 

@terrainsvagues You might also find some useful and interesting philosophy on the topic of "Open" as well as identity on the web at https://indieweb.org. This might allow another level of business that's not commonly seen in the web (yet).

 

@estellevw While I have immense respect for the creators of noti.st, I'm going to follow Rachel's advice and host all of my events, RSVPs, notes, slides, etc. on my own site.

Within the past month [it's guestimated that over 1 million webmentions](https://snarfed.org/1-million-webmentions) have been sent on the internet. There's not really solid research on how many sites physically send and/or receive them, but as of [last June](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkc5afFohmI&t=2s) the conservative number was in the range of about 5,000 and the number is increasing rapidly, particularly with platforms like micro.blog (5-10,000 accounts) now supporting them out of the box and CMSs like Drupal (via plugin) and Perch having added them since then. This also doesn't take into account an anecdotally sharp uptick of adoption on WordPress via plugin, most notably by several WordPress core developers.

Mastodon already supports most microformats for webmention to be implemented more easily. https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/122 and https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/965

There are already a number of open source tools that might also be bootstrapped for something like this as well: https://indieweb.org/Webmention#Services

@jernst Thanks for your nudges and suggestions for improving the UI in the indieweb suite of plugins!

 

@benwerd I love the sound of this! It would be even cooler if it were baked into the version of Microsub that I hear is brewing: https://indieweb.org/Microsub

 

@amyhurst Since you can log into the wiki, you're welcome to add yourself as an example to the https://indieweb.org/Indieweb_for_Education page which may also have some resources you'll appreciate. Good to "see" you at camp this weekend!

 

For those interested in more and who know a bit of code, David's also got a "master class" on adding microformats to modern themes in his commit trail for updating/upgrading the TwentySixteen theme to be more IndieWeb friendly: https://github.com/dshanske/twentysixteen-indieweb/commits/master

While it isn't comprehensive and may not cover every eventuality for every theme, following along with his commits here will get you a long way towards better understanding microformats v2 use with WordPress. I think I've learned more about WordPress themes and microformats by following his changes here than anything else I've tried.
