At the last IndieWeb Dinner, we discussed implementing realtime display of indieweb comments when viewing a note. This is analogous to when you're looking at a post on Facebook and someone adds a comment, it shows up automatically with no page refresh.
I was sitting at the back of the API discussion at the Quantified Self Conference this Friday in San Francisco, and realized that there is something wrong with the current way these quantified self devices are built and marketed. I don't want to buy a device and be trapped in the company's ecosystem of apps and be stuck in yet another social network. I want to use these physical devices as inputs to my own data store, and have a completely separate set of companies handle the social and aggregation of data from the data that I own.
Since I live in Google Calendar every day anyway, it would be great to use that interface to browse my #indieweb events as well! Since my events page is marked up with h-event microformats, all it would take is to write an h-event to iCal converter script to generate an iCal feed from my list of events. Then I could just subscribe to the iCal feed from within Google Calendar.
