@holden I'm wondering if you're planning on coming back to camp this year as well? I'm excited by the growing number of related folks who are planning on attending.


Yes: Given some earlier conversation in chat with Greg and Ian, I'm expecting a bit of conversation about at this meetup. I can't wait!


@SchumakerA Seeing your bio, I'll also note that there's a number of educators and related edtech folks in the as well.
Happy to help if you have any questions.


@heml There's even a group working on education related uses:


@amichaelberman If you find yourself down in the city in the future, I'll offer to treat you for lunch/dinner at Porto's to talk about people, technology, innovation, and .


@Joseph_Koivisto @edsu I would also encourage you to think about potentially proposing an Edu-focused session that Saturday to help get a broader conversation going around IndieWeb and education:


It seems like such a waste of effort/time for a 23 year old conference to *not* have a permanent Twitter handle. @DNA23UT


@nlafferty I suspect @wiobyrne has used @withknown in the past as well

Aside from one or two custom CSS tweaks, everything seems to be looking and working as expected! If readers or users see or experience any issues, please let me know.

I can't wait to try out all of the new core features and improvements that have arrived since 0.9.2! Including:

  • A simpler user registration experience
  • Fixed image preview rotation
  • Improved indieweb support (including for likes and reposts)
  • Improved migration support
  • Advanced access control internal API
  • Design and layout fixes
  • Better error pages
  • Support for PHP 7
  • Countless fixes and speed improvements in the background

You can get your own version of one of the best, most modern, and most forward-thinking Content Management Systems on the planet by contacting the fantastic team at Or host your own version: with lots of community developed plugins.

If you've already got Known and haven't upgraded, I've previously written up an outline about the upgrade process.

Coming up soon, I'll be upgrading my Known testing ground at which, in some sense, is its own social media site, but also allows users to sign up for an account to test drive some of the core functionality in addition to syndicating their content to sites like Twitter and also backfeed their comments back from Twitter. For ease of use, I recommend setting up the bookmarklet after creating your account.

The 1.0 version of Known is anticipated some time in June 2017, but to be honest, in the almost three years I've been using it, it's been both fantastic and rock solid.
