Often the IndieWeb is re-creating functionality from traditional media or the social spaces to our own sites. Who is going to innovate and turn the tide in the other direction?
Where is the avant guarde? Who is going to be the next Stan Brakhage, George Antheil, Luis Buñuel, or Walter Murch of the web?
How can we push corporate social media back onto their heels?
I can’t wait for someone to create the next social media craze because it’s something they’re creatively posting on their own website as a media format that social silos don’t allow.
Who is experimenting with quirky multimedia posts on their websites? Who’s going to have the next meme generator/Tik Tok/SnapChat stories/inventive new functionality first? I’m imagining something in the vein of Marty’s Kapowski, Aaron’s emoji avatars, or Jeremy’s Indy maps, but I’m sure we could go crazier and push the envelope even further.
Bonus points if it’s done in the form of a micropub client! 🙂
Just published two minimal packages to help building micropub applications!
The second one is a small IndieAuth middleware that can be easily plugged into an Express.js app!
Testing out Malcolm Blaney's relatively new Unicyclic feed reader. Very clean and simple! I love that it handles Twitter feeds in a much more natural way than any of the big corporate feed readers out there. Of course the fact that it supports micropub is also a major bonus! IndieWeb tools FTW!Syndicated copies to:
Made some significant progress today on an approximately 2,800 word feature article on the W3C Micropub spec with some motivation, examples, use cases, etc. Needs some editing, a bit of artwork, and some screenshots, but we’re nearly there.
Have a few ideas about placement already…Syndicated copies to:
