My Notes from our Virtual Homebrew Website Club

I lost noterlive halfway through but here is our discussion. It is summary and paraphrasing not direct quotes:

Chris Aldrich:

Chris shared a blog from a read post that he set up with a newspaper in Colorado

David Shanske:

Is hsowing how to change the settings in the

wiobyrne:

does a 1-2 posts a week as his new “tick-tock” About a few weeks ago he built up a site to as his book.

I am trying to have a little breadcrumb site in a meaningful and intentional way. and keep my long form writing on another site.

I need to really understand this so I can explain it to people who won’t go and try to figure it out.

now I am trying a set up a process, that isn’t working, about trying to bookmark and summarize and little by little I will fold in more things on my breadcrumbs site.

I am looking for one good tool to build on my site to be my breadcrumb trail

Taylor Jadin:

We are going with a #DOO project. For years teachers have been using wordpress sites, and giving students the rights as authors.

Tim Clarke:

Jim discusses his #DOO project at a university in Allentown, PA.

Gregor Love:

Gregor has been developing a secret project that is a micropub read/write reader.

Chris Aldrich:

Shares coloradobolevard.net which gets his first read posts. It is so cool to see #IndieWeb posts on blogs

Twitter used to have a nice open API and there were 1,000s of apps. Micropub is an open API that allows you to post anywhere and create a nice API for specific posts

I uses reading.am and PESOS back to my site and then the other time I am using Press Forward. It is an rss feed reader built in my website. I use that a good bit to read stuff in my WordPress install.

wiobyrne:

I would like to pull people up for 20 minutes and just have people go through their site and say this how I work. So you could take half that story like just your mobile workflow. then another on yoru desktop workflo

Greg McVerry:

I think @wiobyrne found his #IndieWeb podcast show topic. 10 minute tours

Chris Aldrich:

Shares how the #DOO project was very connected in the early days of #indieweb but so much is working better now we need to rehook them in.

Greg McVerry:

I share that i think for the #indieweb and #doo to work you would need to start with a turn key template. @chrisaldrich shares the myspace analogy. You tinkered and played.

wiobyrne:

You used to start with a template and they would hate it, but if you start with nothing they hate it.

Taylor Jadin:

shares stories of giving students a canned template or a blank page

Tim Clarke:

shares how his university went real slow and rolled-out a few domains at a time

wiobyrne:

We spend a lot of money on e-portfolio systems that is lousy. We are locking it down.

Gregor Love:

Wants to slap our wrist for letting the conversation get to badges….Yet I am stoked I he shared: https://indieweb.org/indorsements
