#indieweb @cathielebland: I am focusing on content right now. When I go on contract I will be general education coordinator. The exciting thing about #indieweb is my phD is in CS but I have moved away from the technical This is getting back to technology
I am running into lots of issues. Starting on a project like this I am not sure the wiki format is best way to present information. I am still struggiling to get my head around it.
I can’t get #indieweb to look aestheically like I want so I have started a different WordPress installations for notes, and different articles, and photos.
go to listen @gwg last podcast and he explains why he used taxonomies and not custom type.
I demonstrate how I use the exclude categories plug in to only publish articles and then have the different archive pages for each.
Showing why she uses a different WordPress theme for each of post kinds to get the aesthetic look she wants
Working with @cathieleblanc to go through each of her individual WordPress instances to check all microformats. A lot of plug-ins don’t work on many of her themes
That visual aspect of making your website is going to be important. I love the sematincs but we need to worry about how things look
If I am going to do this with my students I can’t send them to the wiki for help. I need to make them a guide.
The pencast @chrisaldrich did was super helpful. It juts needs to be shorter students won’t sit through the whole thing.
If I do it with my students and I say pick one of these three themes. That just feels “unindie”
Even what you just said to me, that I have enough of an h-entry on my post but some thigns are missing that was super helpful. Do the kids need indpenendence or do we force them to be semantically correct
We may do a virtual IndiewWebCamp with #highered folks doing #DOO who want to focus on #indieweb but the big choice is do we force them into a theme.
Well force isn’t forced if it is knowledged based decision. Explain to kids why those three themes work
We need to make the tools easier to understand and easier move. This movement to decentralized software ..is good..if you can do plug and play…we just aren’t there yet. It’s really hard for a human to understand how all the pieces fit together
