Nice to see you got Known working James and great write-up!

I would like to invite you to watch this brilliant video on why is a very cool project.

Johan Bové

The gallery looks great!

Why aren't we talking about digital identities like a transport protocol instead of user interfaces?

Johan Bové

Thanks for the link to that analysis. Interesting. Wondering if the situation improved a little in the last two years.

I'm thinking of any of the Ubuntu variants, so Debian based, like Xubuntu/Lubuntu or Ubuntu Budgie - or perhaps Linux Mint, but I don't want to spend too much time setting up and maintaining the OS. Want to have something convenient and popular so I can find solutions for the occasional glitch fairly easily and where I don't need to compile everything from source.

It's called POSSE, acronym for Publish (on your) Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere
For starters: https://indieweb.org/POSSE

I'm contemplating never to log in again to the bird site, even from before this rich-man-wants-to-control-the-digital-world drama - Logged out two weeks ago and thanks to Indieweb's POSSE I haven't had to actually interact manually with it anymore, all while still being "present" there.

It's probably a bit of both. I do know that not all vodka is Russian. I do think that Germany should abolish public street advertisement for strong alcohol and cigarettes.

“Moscow’s troops are confiscating identity documents from an additional 15,000 people in a section of Mariupol under Russian control” - How is it that with all the technology we have available to us right, we still depend on a piece of paper to have proof of who we are? @GETJolocom
is not a luxury, it's a basic need.

Johan Bové

Thank you for doing this!

@Cambridgeport90 Since my hardware is apparently too old for Windows 11, according to Microsoft, my next OS will most probable won't be Windows. Haven't decided yet which distribution to get. Biggest challenge will be to also get away from OneDrive and Office... Therefore I am testing NextCloud and OpenOffice.

@jackyalcine The hardest "Meta" app to ditch for me and my family will be WhatsApp - it's the only thing my parents in law are accepting right now as chat app. We have about 7GB worth of picture files in our family group. I backed these up, but still will be hard to replace with anything else.

Ben met Postman aan het testen :-)

@RangerMauve Not sure if you already had put the video on IPFS, here is the CID QmVEKci1FF4ZiLcayguVQ5512nCPxTkP98LZsmq6GCNPRB - pinning it from my machine and i'll keep it running. Also seeding your hyperdrive so it should at least how 1 connected peer. A snapshot of your site is at QmSSRVqtgtvGRJpG29tezwvdRryuwbUN8V6SKRH1yRqFVj

@johanbove Happy to add that Vitra "works on my machine" - Windows 10 with a Ubuntu 20.04 LTS as WSL. Was able to completely follow the tutorial and intro done by pfrazee. Had to add https://www.npmjs.com/package/node-seccomp as a dependency and compile it - but after that it all worked well. Using Node 16.13.2.

I would love a tiny house drone that collaborates with our vaccuum cleaner robot to do some dusting and clearing up cobwebs.
ps. Happy Birthday!

A couple of years ago the SOLID project was pre-launched - but it hasn't really yet taken off the ground yet. Wondering what is holding it back to becoming a great base for SSI that is not blockchain based.

For the record: I think you current avatar fits your site perfectly. No need to change it. :-)

@calum_ryan Wishing I hadn't gotten sick!

Johan Bové

I really wish I could join, but work responsibilities will make it a little tricky to attend fully. I can drop by over my lunch break just to say hi and hand over some little token of my thankfulness of what you all do for the Indieweb.
