It would be fun to have other folks in the community read the “standard” introductions for each section of This Week in the IndieWeb Audio Edition! I can take them in .wav for or .flac or anything that Audacity can open in a lossless way.
Regarding the webring: there has been no progress! I intended to circle back with Doug Beal about it but it was forgotten. I have been playing with glitch.com for several IndieWeb-related projects, recently, and that would be a fun one!
