Baltimore's second November 2017 meetup for Homebrew Website Club met at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center on November 15th.
Below are notes from the "broadcast" portion of the meetup.
jonathanprozzi.net – Is back after lots of travel and writing a post about that, including a roadmap of getting back into things. Archived several posts from his old Hugo site into his new WordPress site. One of his 2018-01-01 goals is to practice posting status updates to his site instead of Facebook.
brksavage.com – Bought a new domain for a blog a couple of months ago, transferring it to BlueHost now. Been looking over old content. A 2018-01-01 commitment: small goal - write something small and publish it before end of year.
bouhmad.com – Working on a first post to go up tonight! Realized the original scope for his "first post", which was going to compare multiple host-based intrusion detection systems, was going to take weeks! So, he's starting off with one, then planning to get back to it after he graduates (hopefully!) in December.
dariusmccoy.com – Just got started with his domain, just a landing page. Wants to add more content to it.
IndieWeb 2018-01-01 Commitments.
- echo-chamber.js - a fake commenting system that stores comments in the browser, so the commenter (and no one else) can see what they are saying.
- IndieWebCamp Baltimore 2018! We talked about what an IndieWebCamp is and how it is structured.
- IoT and the IndieWeb (mentioned the IndieWebSummit session on IndieWeb for Hardware).
- Twitter and Facebook business models and how they benefit from outrage.
- IndieWeb generations, specifically the way that participating in the IndieWeb right now almost requires you to be a developer.
- The creepiness of Amazon Key.
Thanks to everybody who came out! We look forward to seeing you at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center for the next one! We'll be meeting again on November 29th.
