Excellent presentation slides on all things Indie Web.
Alex Kearney looks back on two years of owning her own data.
With a fully functional site up and running, I focused on my own needs and developed features to support how I wanted to use my site. In hind-sight, that’s probably the most indie thing I could’ve done, and how I should’ve started my indieweb adventure.
This really resonates with me.
One of the motivating features for joining the indieweb was the ability to keep and curate the content I create over time.
Here’s to two more years.
A great one-page intro to microformats (h-card in particular), complete with a parser that exports JSON. Bookmark this for future reference.
I need to wrap my head around the details of this approach, but it sounds like it might be something I could do here on my site (where I feel nervous about my current dependency on a database).
The slides from Calum’s presentation at Front-end London.
or: how I learnt to stop worrying and love the blog.
This is a really nice introduction to the basics of the Indie Web …with nice illustrations too.
Well, this is pretty nifty: Dan Gilmour is at Indie Web Camp in San Francisco and he’s already got some code up and running on his site.
Y’know, I’m not missing South by Southwest in the slightest this year …but I’m really missing Indie Web Camp.
I approve of this message.
Glenn gives a rational thoughtful explanation of why he’s as pissed off as I am about Google’s destruction of the Social Graph API.
More brilliant and useful code from Glenn: copy and paste contact details from one URL into a form on another URL.
There’s a Kubrickian quality to this picture Tantek snapped of me asking a question during his microformats panel.
As of today, every single public event on Facebook is marked up using hCalendar. Take the Great British Booze-up, for example…
A nice, neat, short introduction to microformats from Ben.
It's down for me right now, but this API from Qwerly looks like a great addition to complement Google's Social Graph API — it finds rel="me" links from a Twitter username.
If you aren't already marking up addresses in hCard, you really, really, really should start.
Basecamp is now chockful of hCards. Excellent!
