Aral Balkan heh, that in itself is a good (if diluted) example of how surveillance and record keeping can be used against people
@benwerd okay, on hindsight it was a mistake. But I giggled every time they said “positronic brain”
Time to fix the fact that, for one reason or another, I’ve never seen I, Robot all the way through
Heard a good #mondegreen over lunch — not sure what the lyrics were supposed to be but sounded a lot like “I’ve got a professional… lawyer”
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!
#indiewebcamp 2013 in numbers:
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.
@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.
I’m beginning to think that I want to store two broad categories of content on my #indieweb site, content which is defined by the time it occurred/is published and content which is primarily defined by some other attribute.
Examples of content defined by time, which at the moment I’m using notes for:
Examples of content primarily defined by things other than time:
Can’t particularly recommend the soup at Fish and More (Reykjavik) — expensive but didn’t taste of much. You’re better off going to bergsson.is
The #randomchilies are growing super-fast in the eternal sunlight:
@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.
@benwerd “barnabywalters, international man of mystery. What is his real name? The microformats parser just can’t tell!”
