Day 1: Lwa’s in Pre-Pre-Alpha by Jacky Alciné

First day of my IndieWeb Challenge for December and it’s going to be about Lwa. I think this whole week might be! I’ve released a “stable” candidate that lets you know what your site needs to work with it. Be sure to try it out and let me know what you think! I’ve also added a page to let you previe…

I just have to say. This is pretty great. I need to try it out; last couple of times gave a internal server error, though I am sure those have all been caught by now and fixed. Good luck, and I will tell you how it goes`! fo the win!
Ditching Event Platforms for the IndieWeb by Jamie TannaJamie Tanna

How we can replace event platforms like Meetup.com with your own IndieWeb-backed platforms.

Love this solution, for the most part, and I have some ideas as to how to implement a less centralized approach to event discovery. From what I have been able to glean through reading, both Foursquare and OpenStreetMap have APIs. I think the best bet would be using the Foursquare API for place search, and have filters implemented so that folks can narrow things down. Not sure how this would work on a decentralized level though. Probably using webmentions to display from sites where events are posted? Or creating a post kind of type event?

IndieWeb Part 4: Cleaning Up

During the past few days, I have noticed some things that need to be looked into up here in terms of IndieWeb functionality. Not sure if anyone else has noticed, and not sure whether this issue is with WordPress itself or with the third-party IndieAuth enabled services I have connected, but either way, I am going to attempt to assist the IndieWeb community by finding out and potentially fixing what I can. I will be honest and admit my very limited knowledge of PHP, however, it is a seemingly simple language to pick up (if others disagree, please discuss in comments because I want to hear!) so providing I can keep my focus in one place (though I won’t be the first to state that is oftentimes more difficult for me than not), I might be able to fix a plugin or two by the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020 at the latest.

Current Situation With This Site

at the moment, I seem to be encountering an issue with my micropub endpoint where it is displaying a 500 error if posting content from third party applications. I have not touched anything in the configuration settings for the plugin, so if anyone has any ideas as to what to look for while troubleshooting, that would be appreciated. Noticed this yesterday or the day before that while attempting to compose a reply via Quill, which failed. The odd thing? My text-enabled check ins seem to be working just fine when posting from Swarm, so not sure what the difference is. Both services, at least to my knowledge, are running on the same infrastructure. I will provide updates for you if I find out anything interesting. I am sure I will at this point.

The upside of sharing personal data

We had a rather interesting lunch yesterday at the MyData Silicon Valley Hub, on the occasion of a visit by Julian Ranger, board member of MyData Global and founder of personal data startup digi.me. Julian offered a striking proposition that I had not heard before. It is very much worth writing abou…

Yes. definitely worth a read. Thank for the insight.

I’m under the weather in LA attending IndieWeb Summit remotely today. There’s some good documentation, but ping me if you need help getting into the chat, finding streaming video, or accessi

Do you know by any chance when the next one of those in Boston happens? I need to get there if you do. Let me know if anything interesting in this area shows up. Not to mention, I think I need to take two of my friends, as well. They would freaking love it.

IndieWeb Journey Part 3: Fooling With Themes

This will be a new experience for me; looks like in order to get everything to work as beautifully as I would like, I’m going to have to dabble with CSS, which should be fun. I’ve switched things up just a little bit, swapping Autonomie for IW26, both of which are respectable IndieWeb compatible themes, so thanks David Shanske for the inspiration.

Colors are still a work in progress, so keep that in mind if you see the webscape changing a bit more than normal over the course of the next few days. My goal is to find a means of getting all of the colors to match up to what is in my head, (sort of hard to do when color schemes are visible in one’s mind, but the eyes are often not on par, you know, side effect of being blind?) but look for red/blue variants, considering those are my two favourites. I’ll keep everybody updated as the times go on, so, stay tuned
