This is a big list of decentralized web technology. I wish Urbit wasn't listed, but otherwise: cool! https://decentralize.tech/ #indieweb
Super-fun to see a Known to Mastodon integration demoed at #indieweb Summit. Really proud of this open source community.
Not quite true that some content types won't work on @Medium. Embedmaker lets you embed your own site: https://embedmaker.com/ #indieweb
Four years ago, I came to this event to demo something called Idno.
Four years later, Known is such a great community. I'm really proud to be back.
Extremely cool. Here's the entire #indieweb social graph of independent websites as queryable data. http://www.indiemap.org/
What's out there? @schnarfed built a web crawler in 15 lines of code and found 706K #indieweb social connections between independent sites.
New to me: Common Crawl does a regular public crawl of the web and makes the data available to everyone. #indieweb https://commoncrawl.org/
Worth saying: if you're helping people own their own content and monetize on their own terms, we should talk. #indieweb #imaninvestornow
"There isn't a good funnel I can push people into." @anomalily making a very good case for much easier, friendlier #indieweb resources.
An aside: I've stopped displaying brid.gy webmentions publicly on my site at http://werd.io. Facebook friends were complaining. #indieweb
Brid.gy is an awesome way to take silo comments (on Facebook and Twitter, etc) and host them on your site so you have them. #indieweb
WordPress is still the most customizable way for non-developers to host their own websites. #indieweb
"I want to monetize *my* way [...] So, how does someone who's not a developer take her shit back from Facebook?" @anomalily #indieweb
"I want to document that I made it." @anomalily wants to host her own work, and attach to her identity, so she can show it's hers. #indieweb
Says @anomalily: "I am not a developer". But she's been building and hosting her own website, on her terms, for 20 years. #indieweb
Webmention, micropub and websub are huge, and simple to integrate, ingredients for adding social functionality to the web itself. #indieweb
Websub, the publish/subscribe protocol formerly known as pubsubhubbub, is a W3C candidate recommendation. #indieweb https://www.w3.org/TR/websub/
Micropub, a lightweight, standard API for publishing to any website, is also now a W3C recommendation. #indieweb https://www.w3.org/TR/micropub/
Webmention, a lightweight spec for social interactions across websites, is now a W3C recommendation. #indieweb https://www.w3.org/TR/webmention/
Controlling your own identity online goes hand in hand with building a more respectful internet. #indieweb https://www.futurehosting.com/blog/the-indieweb-movement-will-help-people-control-their-own-web-presence/
Sounds good to me. #indieweb http://blog.vickiboykis.com/2016/11/20/fix-the-internet/
