Thanks to everyone who joined me last night at #TechNott for my talk about the #IndieWeb - you can find the recording of the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFXOZww5mmE - I'll also look at getting it uploaded to Archive.org for longevity!

Not long now till you'll be able to hear me talking about the #IndieWeb at tonight's #TechNott - hope to see some of you there to learn what it is, why some of us want to own our data and be our own platforms, and more!

Happy #TechNott day all! Looking forward to seeing you later to hear a bit more about what the #IndieWeb is, and the ways you can get involved owning your data and building cool things for yourself https://www.technottingham.com/events/tech-nottingham-april-2021

Looking forward to talking about all things #IndieWeb, owning your data, and some of the cool open standards and tech we've worked on to take back a bit of control 🤓

If y'all haven't seen there's a cool thing called the #IndieWeb that is all about trying to do some of these things! https://indieweb.org/why

I run an #IndieWeb site which means I'm able to store my likes on my personal website and easily browse them at https://www.jvt.me/kind/likes/ 🙃

What in particular are you finding difficult? I'm running a Hugo site and have quite a few #IndieWeb integrations

I'm quite heavily into the IndieWeb movement, in which we've designed a new standard Microsub which allows for a slightly better API than "regular" RSS/Atom readers, as it allows for you to use different feed formats on the backend. It also splits between the client and the server quite nicely, so I can use Indigenous for Android when on the move, and Monocle when I'm on the desktop. The best thing about the standard, aside from allowing extensible feed parsing, is that I can use different clients to read it, instead of relying on a single provider - which I believe we've seen with some of the RSS/Atom readers around currently.

The server I use is Aperture, built and run by Aaron Parecki, and I subscribe to a mix of RSS/Atom, JSON Feed and Microformats2 feeds

You can make it work with tools like https://twitter-atom.appspot.com/ or https://granary.io (from Ryan Barrett) which help convert to a feed format of choice. Those of us in the #IndieWeb are still heavily using open standards 👍🏽
