First week without Twitter went well - getting by just fine keeping up-to-date on the topics I am most interested in by means of IRC, RSS, ActivityPub, Webmentions, the Fediverse and the Indieweb.

Wondering about how webmentions would work on IPFS hosted sites? If there is no domain name to link the webmention to, then it simply won't work. An IPFS webmention would have to look at the content's CID hash instead to function. In theory this would actually be a much more precise way of identifying to what content a webmention belongs to; but in practice it would be hard as the CID change with every byte the content changes with. So a different approach would have to rely on the path set by the IPNS. The challenge there is that we can also use _dyndns txt entries. To be investigated.

Was able to send my first Beakermention using Sentamalins application. Yes, this is an implementation of webmentions in Beaker between Hyperdrives. Still early days. But seems very promising.

I'm enjoying my "Indieweb" enabled site as it allows to post my Tweets first on a platform I own and then republish to Twitter etc. Webmentions are also pretty cool as they allow to interact with other posts from my own site and the reactions show up on their site and mine. I can even use my own site to authenticate to multiple services. The movement gives me hope that there will be more to the Internet than corporate silos alone.

The process flow of replying on your own site through webmentions is still a little confusing to me, even after six months of playing around with a Known CMS site. Uncertain still as to where I should do a reply on a reply.

Wondering if my outgoing are coming through. Seems like Likes of post by Jacky Alciné on his site https://v2.jacky.wtf/ and my "like" post responses on Greg's site (https://quickthoughts.jgregorymcverry.com/) are not coming through. Wondering if it could be the Akismet antispam tool? @jgmac1106 Are you using that on your Known site?

Johan Bové

Would be cool if webmentions could tell if it's under moderation and queued up for review.

Installed the Akismet Spam filter by @mapkyca - https://www.marcus-povey.co.uk/known-plugins/
- looking at preemptively mitigate spam through webmentions.

That is some sound advice! The coolest new technologies I learned about are web sign-in, webmentions and microsub & micropub. It's really cool how I can use - essentially - my own domain name, a server and any editor or reader client to passively and actively participate online 🌐

Was wondering what kind of server requirements an enabled website would need for celebrities like Bill Gates in terms of integration with Webmentions.io and Brid.gy. Would a site like https://www.gatesnotes.com/ bring these services to their knees?

Used for the first time to share my own post to Twitter. Mainly because I'm curious if the instance will pick up the through brid.gy.
