“…the IndieWeb is a toolkit. A collection of ideas, technologies, and services that can help you solve some particularly tricky problems. If you're wanting to get involved in the #IndieWeb, the first question you need to ask is: what problem do I have?” https://theadhocracy.co.uk/wrote/one-year-in-the-indieweb
Playing with http://indielogin.com and it's pretty spiffy - I can authenticate as my domain using my PGP key. Now I'm looking into using more bits of the p3k system https://indieweb.org/p3k from @aaronpk to add bits of #indieweb dynamicness to my simple static site.
One of the biggest issues I have with some folks in the #Indieweb community right now are the people who want to demetricate social media posts. My opinion on that, is that metrics aren't bad in themselves.
Frankly I agree, I find value in some metrics for various reasons, it's not always a bad thing. There also isn't a single #IndieWeb opinion on this kind of thing, which is the great part about the IndieWeb.
This year, the IndieWeb community has been making progress on iterating and evolving the IndieAuth protocol. IndieAuth is an extension of OAuth 2.0 that enables it to work with personal websites and in a decentralized environment.
I'll be hanging out at ActivityPub Conf this weekend, starting with my live Q&A session tomorrow! I'm always happy to chat about all things OAuth and authentication! Check out my recorded talk ahead of time, and join the discussion on the forum!
