Great suggestion and I would love this as well. I am a bizarre person who is terrible at managing my own music experiences, so unfortunately I don’t have anything for this right now! I’m open to try things if folks have ideas.
The bit I wish worked better on mobile is syndicating interactions with Tweets back to Twitter. Posting the reaction to my site works fine, and some of the tools let me set a syndication target for Replies, but none let me do that with a Like or Repost (that I’ve found).
I share a lot of these syndication frustrations, since I don’t want to build it into my site’s backend. For Wordpress sites I think it can be automated with plugins (brid.gy syndication links?).
I’m considering getting a Shortcuts flow going before Summit. 😅 Long term I would love a service that does this with Micropub.
It looks like I will be speaking at IndieWeb Summit! Specifically, I’ll be giving a keynote about how to “Own Your Mobile Experience”.
As a long-time enthusiast for these tiny computers we carry, I try to make most of the things I can do online into things I can do on my phone or tablet. That turns out to be… a lot of things.
I’ll probably keep the technical details light, other than naming specific IndieWeb building blocks that each piece relies on. I plan to make a (set of?) posts on my site explaining the plumbing, afterwards.
With just about a week and a half left to plan my ~10-15 minute set of demos, here are some things I am thinking of discussing / demoing.
“Even experts don’t have a full picture of the surveillance economy, in part because its beneficiaries are so secretive, and in part because the whole system is in flux. Telling people that they own their data, and should decide what to do with it, is just another way of disempowering them. “
Facebook shuts down a tool used to find human rights abuses.
For a company whose main problem is the public finding out about human rights abuses (and genocide) facilitated with its platform, or Russian attacks on American society, or the prevalence and activities of nationalist and neo-Nazi hate groups on Facebook, or any number of things, it’s a brutal tactic from a company that will apparently protect its own interests at any cost.
Here are notes from the "broadcast" portion of the meetup.
amyhurst.com — Did not work on her site today. Been updating her NYU-generated faculty page, instead, and thinking about how it fits in with her site. Trying to fix links to things like research papers, which are normally behind paywalls.
mfgriffin.com — Managing TODO lists today! Trapped in a "oh all these wonderful tools to choose from" situation. Made a lateral move to put his notes about IndieWeb into a local notebook in OneNote, re-reading them and splitting things up. Finding lots of old TODOs from IndieWebCamp and other meetings. Got FTP to his website functioning again. Amy reminds him to set up griff.fun to redirect to his main site, as it's parked right now.
tiaramiller.com — Been learning Amazon Web Services stuff, finding lots of IndieWeb examples of folks hosting on S3 and other services there. Doing research and making lists for things to try and learn next.
martymcgui.re — Updated his homepage feed of upcoming events. Previously, it would show future events that he had posted on his site, but it now also shows RSVPs
Other topics of discussion
We got a pretty decent table and an outlet, even! Sundays are pretty quiet here so that's good. The A/C was quite aggressive, though!
AWS does so many things and also has a very steep learning curve!
IndieWebCamp shirts are available now in two styles!
Always enjoy @violetblue spilling the cybersecuritea. Click for the Baltimore ransomware drama. Stay for the thrice-dunked Facebook. Then, learn how moralizing capitalists make bank creeping on and silencing sex workers.
We didn't really have a "broadcast" portion of the meetup, but we discussed some things and worked on personal projects! I'm writing this up nearly a month late, so I have forgotten many of the things we talked about. 😬
Matt (mfgriffin.com) and myself (martymcgui.re) researched ways for Matt to capture and process the many text, audio, image, and video artifacts that he creates across many projects, both personal and professional.
I showed off a bit about how I do this on my own non-public notes site, and spent some time working on an iOS Shortcut to post notes more quickly to that personal site.
We look forward to seeing folks at the next HWC NYC, at another weekend meetup on June 9th. We'll be meeting at the same location, and may even be able to grab some outlets this time!
