Back home after an excellent three week holiday in Italy!

Loved spending time with the family and enjoying good food and fun activities. Also, we escaped the last heatwave in Düsseldorf that way. Spent a very relaxing and refreshing two week vacation in San Vigilio di Marebe in South-Tirol.

More to follow later.

> I’m talking about reaching people who are unlikely to ever attend such a meet-up. To use the IndieWeb Generations definition, I’m thinking about the 3s and maybe 4s in my network.

Thanks for the pointer to IndieWeb Generations (https://indieweb.org/generations#IndieWeb_Generations). Had missed that page completely until now.

Going to have to analyse that page first and think about how we can resolve your original point.

> seeking a way to engage and coach these particular users into their first steps, rather than relying on them to work through a guide or documentation.

Most regular people don't want to have a site for the sake of it, why do most people enjoy using silos (Facebook especially) so much?

What are their main activities there? Actions like safely sharing pictures of their children with their family etc. Silos simply work and are popular so it's easy to find friends and family to connect to. They are available everywhere, are free (if you take away the price of given away your privacy) and require zero technical knowledge. ( Wondering if somebody studies why Facebook is so popular?)

How can we enable them to achieve those actions using IndieWeb solutions, with the same ease as when they stay within the silos?

Projects like Known and micro.blog share those ambitions. So I'll try to contribute to those projects in order to make them "more mainstream" as-in "easier to use". Creating documentation and training will of course help too.

Had a fun day at the park yesterday. Joined some friends at a kids music festival. was impressed by the number of other kids, but was more interested in trying to pet the dogs than the music. He got all covered in sand when playing in the sandbox too.
