This was a good decision! Glad I went. Got to see David, Angelo, and a few others who came in. Had a good chat about the Braid extension, Diamond Types, and now I'm curious about how I can play around with such a system.

I've already wanted to add support for edit posts, mainly to allow people to implement tag replies to posts and even own my edits that I make to the IndieWeb wiki via some sort of back feed (a pipe I would have to implement). There are other applications I can see—by translating updates over Micropub to be edit posts, I can make posts have an in-built history that readers can view applications of over a period of time. Lots of potential!

HWCs: Glad I Went!

Attending the PST-centric Homebrew Website Club the other night was refreshing! I got a chance to see some faces I haven't seen in quite some time and talk about—well, anything! I did get some perspective for my own use of the language around IndieMark and generations, something I'm hoping to write more about in the future. Not only that, but I've been comfortable hacking on my site and occasionally popping into chat to sync with people, but not everyone's plugged in there. In fact, there's some people I personally only interact with through HWC—something that rings the bell of plurality. This encourages me to try to make it to more of them when I can; especially in this more connected landscape. Maybe you'll find your way at the next one? Be sure to RSVP and come with your website, ideas or both! I know I'll be trying to show more five-minute demos of what I'm working on with Lwa and potentially get some feedback on it.
