Earlier, aral wittily quipped:
The CMS I use for my personal sites is called a file system. You might have heard of it. #indieweb
I disagree with this premise. Useful and easy as filesystems are, without a wrapper like Jekyll they don’t manage content (resources), they manage representations (typically HTML).
laurakalbag you mean you spend time doing… reverse spam filtering?! Doesn’t that negate the usefulness of spam filters completely? Personally I am inclined against leaving comments on other sites anyway, it may keep conversations in the same place but it fragments my identity. Hence developing Own Your Comments
Aaron Parecki funny you should mention that, I’ve been making a little indieweb-oriented icon set. Not public yet, I’ll drop it on GH this morning
benward heh, or not :/ Hopefully this time though. If not I won’t bother you with any more of these tweets :)
Here is the wrap-up of @t and @zeldman and others discussing self hosting and links: http://notes.tomhenrich.com/2011/01/own-your-data/ /cc @tommorris #indieweb/
Note that myself and Aaron Parecki are overcoming some of these UX issues with things like Indieweb Reply, syndicated conversations and smart truncenation algorithms.
tommorris yay! I feel honoured you've taken the time to install it on Christmas Day :) So does ferocity send/receive pingbacks? Next step is to stop relying on twitter for reply/notification infrastructure.
tommorris agreed. I am amazed that there is such a consumer culture in such a creative, technically-able community
