1. Aral Balkan: So http : // twitter . com / @aral (sans spaces, of course) is a valid URL. If clients used it as a mention we’d have fully-qualified names.

    Aral Balkan current rough consensus is to use URLs as nouns, pingback (or webmention) as notification infrastructure.

    Personally I am doing some rather more complex stuff where I author notes using @-names, which get parsed by @cassisjs into .h-x-username twitter.com-linked anchors, then I transform those into .h-card’s with data either from my contacts DB (at the mo mirrored from my personal CardDAV share) or from the identengine.com API for people I don’t know. Then all the links in a note get sent pingbacks.

    Fat chance of twitter implementing that though ;)

  2. Sophie Dennis: @BarnabyWalters I agree with @laurakalbag : the challenge for #indieweb is ease-of-use - that, not privacy/control, is how platforms win

    sophiedennis one of the interesting things about is that there’s almost no discussion about privacy or security. It’s completely focused on sharing, content ownership and lowering the barrier to entry.

  3. Chris Messina™: @BarnabyWalters via ping back! Ha! I appreciate your dedication to #IndieWeb blogging! :)

    Chris Messina tbh I prefer to have actual discussions with people over IRC or hangout or other such medium, and use my website as a destination for solidified results of those discussions, and a broadcast medium to include others too. So I'd love to hear your comments on stuff I’ve said, perhaps in on freenode? :)

  4. Just catching up with the bits of #indiewebcamp I missed due to the time difference. Thankfully, the wiki is great, with every session getting a page and an etherpad.
