@MikeKra36812131 Perhaps a bit more free-form with a tangential name, but let's give it a whirl and see who would show up:
@vv4rner While I love what RSS enables and there's a huge ecosystem for it, I am against it for DRY reasons. It's stable in the fact that no one has iterated on it in over a decade. It also helps that WordPress core handles a lot of the admin tax for me on maintaining it, but it has caused metacrap issues for me in the past.
So what to do to replace RSS? If you look at most of my content, I've got the HTML marked up with (richer) microformats for those who'd like to consume that directly without needing a side file for it. There's an existing ecosystem of microformats parsers and even social readers that use microformats over RSS. Incidentally microformats are also part of the semantic layer that makes site-to-site converstions on IndieWeb-based sites work better.
@JamieTanna @fiinixdesign @hdv Try any platform (social or otherwise) that will let you add a public link to the webpage you're responding to, then use a service for sending them manually. Tumblr, WordPress, etc. should work, though may not be pretty.
@BiswasSholanki I've wanted to try out Ghost, but this part has been a blocker. https:/
@TYLTK Mine's back up, and from what I see in the Known chat, you should be back too. Details about the issue here: https:/
The invited talk "Take Back Your Web" given by the thoughtful and Inimitable @t should be livestreaming in just a few minutes from WordCamp US
#IndieWeb #DoOO #WCUS
Wishing I was at #WCUS today to hear my friend Tantek Çelik @t, web standards lead @Mozilla & @CSSwg, talk on "Take Back Your Web"
Could I volunteer some web development time/energy to help any interested @RadioRookies journalists build their own websites/platforms for empowering/owning their voices, stories, and reporting portfolios? https:/
This is one of the best end funniest uses I've seen yet for having a domain of one's own!
