A nice thread to contemplate for community CoC. #indieweb https:/
@AneliseHShrout You can find the IRC/Slack/etc details here: http:/

Another useful resource is the IndieWeb wiki which also includes http:/
@billbennettnz @davewiner I think I mentioned to you that @Chronotope was mulling something over along these lines:
I'm curious if there's a middle ground? The way that @davewiner does his blog with updating hashes throughout the day would be interesting within news distribution, that way the URL changes, but at the same time it doesn't really. Example: http:/

Imagine how powerful a long running story could be with all of these features? Or even snippets of inter-related stories which could be plugged into larger wholes? Eg: The Trump Administration's handling of North Korea seen in fact snippets over time spanning months while pieces of this could be integrated into a larger Trump Administration mega-story going back to January or even the beginning of his campaign. Someone who hasn't been following along could jump back months or years to catch up relatively quickly, but still have access to more context that is often missing from bigger pieces which need to stand on their own relatively.

Comments back to this are welcome, as is conversation in the #indieweb channel, or even brainstorming on the wiki (perhaps the generations page: https:/
