One of the reasons why I keep my IRC connection going is the amazing IRC channels. Thanks to some awesome bot programming (Loqi) you can follow up pretty neatly what is happening in a unobtrusive, ad-free manner.

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.

Just a reminder that all of the tools are made by enthusiasts in their spare time and are open source, so if you see something off, then please report. Helps a million.

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

Reminds me I need to send some moneys to Tim for keeping my Mastodon instance up over at https://indieweb.social.

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.

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.

Hi Tilman, about the "unfurl" URLS - I must admit I'm not sure entirely how it works. The Known CMS I use was prepared mostly by Marcus Povey (https://github.com/mapkyca) and was build by other developers. I only changed the template a bit. I will have a look in the source code and see if I can dig up how it works.
There is also an article here about what "unfurling" is about https://indieweb.org/link-preview

All of the Known source code can be found here: https://github.com/idno/known

Update:

So as I understand it, the Known PHP system will parse through post body content and it will find URLS to external sites. The application will then do a get request to the external link and it will parse the response it will get back and it will look for any "schematic" data it can find, mostly micro-formats.

IT and futures — John Conor Ryan

If you’re a disgruntled user of social media, or an entrepreneur or investor seeing opportunity in the wave of disenchantment, you’re wondering if alternative social media are important, or is “just” creating more walled gardens a bad idea? Instead, do decentralized intermediaries, such as T decentralization, dweb, indieweb, syndicated

Even after two years on the IndieWeb, I still get the process to reply to a reply _wrong_ sometimes.
