1. Erin Jo Richey: I appreciate companies that let me export my files when the company goes away, but putting them in 100 separate files to be downloaded? Eesh

    Erin Richie which company is that? I’m doing some research on the UX of data export at the mo and they sound like a good bad example :)

  2. Barnaby Walters: #indiewebcamp 2013 in numbers: 2 days, 4 rooms 43 Creators, 3 Apprentices participating in-person > 13 people participating remotely, including 5 by video 16 brainstorming sessions 11 selfdogfooding demos 11 hack demos 38 active IRC participants (people who actually said stuff) 60 people in IRC at any given time 2718 total IRC messages 176 wiki edits 35090 net wiki insertions (new chars) Most counts either manually from the wiki or scraped from the IRC logs, which are surprisingly nicely marked up. I received over 20 mentions via both pingback and webmention — I’d love to hear how many others received. Likewise, if anyone has personal stats like LOC or commit counts, please leave them in the comments! Does anyone who was there IRL have any other stats e.g. amount of food/drink consumed? Total bandwidth/electricity usage would also be awesome to know.

    I’m thinking of actually writing the code I used to calculate those stats and run it for previous and future indiewebcamps, too — might be fun to see how we’re growing!

  3. In reply to a post on twitter.com

    @zakkain at the moment everything I post is a note or an article, both of which get POSSEd to twitter automatically by my server and then to Facebook manually if I want. Delegating to an external service, even if it’s one I manage, is probably a good long term solution, but I always want to get the syndicated URL back on my site which complicates things a little more.

    I know others are having success using IFTTT for POSSE.

  4. Sandeep Shetty: # Liking Mutable Things On most silos where people can't edit stuff they've posted, you're liking immutable things. On the #indieweb, however, where content owners have complete control over __their__ content, you're liking things that are potentially mutable. One way to mitigate the problems of liking mutable things (like I do with #converspace) might be to quote the thing you liked along with your like post. #converspace #rssb #thinkingoutloud

    @sandeepshetty that’s the reason for reply contexts — dealing with content which changes or goes away. If you store the reply/like context then your copy of the data is always the most valuable, most complete. Otherwise it’s the copy shown on the remote site.

  5. Ben Werdmuller: I don't get why you'd use markdown to blog on your own site. Markdown is useful: an easy-to-use notation system that allows you to mark up your text in a safe, fast way.

    @benwerd I use markdown for initial authoring purely for speed, esp. when typing on mobile devices. After that I just edit the HTML. I’ve yet to come across a WYSIWIM editor which satisfied my semantic, well-structured HTML needs, any suggestions?

  6. Ben Werdmuller: @barnabywalters Btw, I don't actually see datetime format guidelines in the mf2 spec. Hoping moving to the time attribute helps. 8m

    @benwerd explained here and here — essentially <time class="dt-*" datetime="yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss±hhmm">human representation</time> is the preferred format.

    Sorry about the messy state of the mf2 docs at the moment, we’re working on it!
