Day 3. Today's theme is "breaking news intro song", and also "Aaron attempts to spend less than 5 hours on this today unlike yesterday". I think I accomplished both! #100daysofmusic #100daysproject #the100dayproject

Loving these so far! BTW - what license (if any) are you making your #100daysofmusic posts available under?

Currently debating between #100DaysOfMusic or #100DaysOfIndieWeb for my #100Days project. #100DaysOfMusic - The goal would be to write a short 10-20 second song every day. The goal would be to write something that's "finished" enough to be able to use it as a podcast or video intro song, so it doesn't have to be long, but has to sound decent. I want to get back into writing music, since I've only done a tiny bit over the last couple years, and it helps to have a more concrete goal. The only w...

This sounds like a really great challenge either way! I am rooting for #100DaysOfIndieWeb because I learn so much about #IndieWeb from your stuff.

Thanks to our guest Terry Withers for makin’ it hot this week!

Bikey friends: talk me out of getting this used Brompton folding bike to replace my stolen bike. It's a 2016 M6L from the Clever Cycles rental stock, on sale for $1349 down from the normal price of $1812. It has the Dynamo hub already built in. It seems like a really good deal, and from everything I've heard, Bromptons are the best by far, despite being way more expensive.

I love my Brompton. They fold so small that I typically carry it in wherever I ride it. It’s amazing for multi-modal travel; I’ve taken it on buses, trains, taxis, and ferries.

Great write-up by Aaron Parecki about web reviews, the dangers of letting individual companies control standards.

Hi, Joe. We get that not everyone feels the same about machine learning. If you'd prefer, you may opt out. http://bit.ly/2hs7NEX

It’s overdue, but the new TOS pushed me to act. Tonight I liberated my Evernote content. Likely will import into laverna.cc.

HWC Baltimore 12/14 Wrap-Up

Baltimore's final Homebrew Website Club meet up of 2016 happened at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center on 12/14/2016. We had a nice quiet writing hour followed by discussion and demos!

Notes from the "broadcast" portion of the meetup:

Jonathan Prozzi (co-organizer) - Completed 2017-01-01 commitments of h-feed and h-entry markup. Working on webmentions setup. Also figuring out separate post types (e.g. status vs articles). Also settled on a permalink and taxonomy structure. Documenting process of making an indieweb-compatible Hugo theme. Added self to /hugo.

Jean-Carlos Cedré - Has an older website. Wants to revisit it and get portfolio pieces on there. Might want to move off of Wordpress.

Marty McGuire (co-organizer) - Completed image-related 2017-01-01 commitments. Needs to write up some new ones. Working on owning his own events. Event posts with photos now get a nice Facebook-inspired poster look to them. Added upcoming events section to home page. Wants to add RSVPs to that list. Also working on a new micropub client for creating and RSVPing to events. Discussion led to the name suggestion "Slater".

Adam Bouhmad - been focusing on classwork, Docker, GitHub issues. In 2017 wants to get back to working on a malware collection site, starting with a UI design.

Here's the customary HWC group selfie:

We also took the time to tune in with the Virtual HWC meetup. Sorry to all the folks in quiet time that had to listen to us have our social time. :}

We are excited about the turnout and the discussions at HWC Baltimore so far! We hope you'll join us for the first HWC Baltimore of 2017 on 1/25!
