Edit: Wow, I just remembered that this will be our 1-year anniversary of when we started this meetup, back in September 2016! To celebrate, there will be stickers and maybe cookies! So if you have no idea what Homebrew Website Club or the IndieWeb are about or don’t know if you want a personal website, come on out to celebrate with us anyway!

Baltimore! Come on out to Digital Harbor Foundation starting at 6:30pm to work on your personal site and learn more about escaping silos like this one.

We’ll also be talking about the upcoming IndieWebCamp NYC!

Can’t make it? That’s okay! Tell your friends by sharing this event. We’ll meet again in October!

Great first day of #IndieWeb Summit! Really enjoyed the opening talks by Aaron, Tantek, Lily, and Ryan.

Also really loved the discussions about special micropub clients, events, updating the IndieWeb site to be less dev-heavy, and especially the lovely tour of interesting personal pages on the web.

Now for dinner and socializing and sleep!

HWC Baltimore 2017-05-31 Wrap-Up

Baltimore's second May 2017 meetup for Homebrew Website Club met at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center on May 31st.

Below are notes from the "broadcast" portion of the meetup.

jonathanprozzi.net - Since last time, did some cosmetic updates to site. Also did a lot of traveling. Catching up now on finishing a series of posts he started at last HWC (May 10th). Now one-and-a-half posts behind his schedule. Wants to stick with consistency of writing something once per week.

amyhurst.com - Working on a website for work (something that is usually on her "some day" list). Gathering student questions from emails into an FAQ on a Wordpress site.

martymcgui.re - Added JSON Feed to blog.adafruit.com because it was easy and why not? Also talked about webmention notifications in his home Matrix chat server via Hubot. Is interested in more textual/conversational interfaces for things in his life and fewer apps and pages to remember to look at.

metamage.com (jjuran.org) - All sites now HTTPS. A couple are HTTP/HTTPS for classic MacOS clients, others are HTTPS-only. Used PNG/GIF and CSS to make a screenshot of an emulator animate when moused-over (bottom of https://www.v68k.org/advanced-mac-substitute/). Some fun browser issues w/ image handling (dithering?) in Safari. His site uses a homebrew Perl static site generator, shared CSS across all his sites. Planning to rework it in the V language.

Chatted about Micropub becoming a W3C Recommendation, including going through Aaron Parecki's announcement post, which is a very clear walk through of the development process. Talked about micro.blog as an up-and-coming social platform that supports Micropub out of the box. Talked about the power of social nudges (like "how's that project going?") for making progress on projects. Two of us (jjuran and martymcgui.re) will be at IndieWeb Summit in Portland later this June and are looking forward to it!

Top-to-bottom, left-to-right: jjuran.org, amyhurst.com, martymcgui.re, jonathanprozzi.net

We hope that you'll join us for the next HWC Baltimore on June 28th at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center!

HWC Baltimore 2017-05-10 Wrap-Up

Baltimore's April 2017 meetup for Homebrew Website Club met at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center on April 19th.

Below are notes from the "broadcast" portion of the meetup.

jonathanprozzi.net - not been making his weekly posts in challenges with Marty. Inspired by a nearby bookstore closing, realized he had done lots of learning in bookstores over the last ~15 years. New idea for a series of posts cataloging all the things learned in a specific place over the years. Wants to journal the things he is learning on a weekly(ish) basis to build an archive.

brianey.com - been writing up lots of ideas for his blog but not finishing them. Based on that unfinished work, started writing about some new topics on creativity. For example, writing about starting things vs. achieving them. Looking forward to writing those including cute graphics of badgers, (em)barkers, etc. and being inspired by those posts to take on other unfinished posts.

amyhurst.com - working on an FAQ page for all the questions she gets from students seeking to get into the grad programs that she manages. It should be a useful resource for students, but also for her to copy and paste into emails from students who don't or won't read it.

martymcgui.re - brought a bunch of posts from an old blog into his site, including old comments from disqus. Did updates to site plumbing so he can add syndication to his posts after the fact with micropub updates, allowing him to get webmentions and notifications of interactions on Twitter, FB, etc via brid.gy without pulling out a laptop.

We talked about the upcoming 2017 IndieWeb Summit June 24th-25th in Portland, Oregon and discussed the indie RSVPs on the site. From there we ended up on Aaron Parecki's site and chatted about the amount of information that is collected and shared, what things we'd like to be collecting for review about ourselves, what things we're comfortable publishing.

Left-to-right: martymcgui.re, brianey.com, amyhurst.com, jonathanprozzi.net. Also: many air plants.

We hope that you'll join us for the next HWC Baltimore on May 31st at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center!

HWC Baltimore 2017-04-19 Wrap-Up

Baltimore's April 2017 meetup for Homebrew Website Club met at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center on April 19th.

Notes from the "broadcast" portion of the meetup.

brianey.com – Been working on some content based on personal notes, which he takes all the time, about things like stuff he's read, etc. Thought about turning ~5 of his notes at a time into monthly lists, but has been writing a lot. Might be more like each note becomes a paragraph-long post. He also manages a newsletter that usually covers one topic, but might automate these new "listy" posts into a collection for the newsletter.

jonathanprozzi.net – Been working on a longer content post, part two of a series that started in March about creativity and code and his personal learning journey. Wants to keep up with post-a-week challenge. Started capturing ideas because he tends to forget topics if he doesn't get started on them. Doesn't want to have long spans of time between posts, so needs a system to keep track of posting as he gets too busy to take big chunks of time.

martymcgui.re – Been working on cleaning up cruft in his site implementation, not a lot of publicly visible stuff. Also been thinking a lot about things that stop him from posting, like not being able to easily syndicate posts while on mobile, and thinking of plans to make it easier. Tonight worked on the first part of supporting micropub edits for his site by working on source queries.

We also had a good discussion about how folks track their projects, keep ongoing notes, nudge themselves to make progress, and more. We talked about tools like Google Calendar and Tasks, laverna.cc, "GTD", and more that I forgot to write down.

Left-to-right: jonathanprozzi.net, mysterious air plant, brianey.com, martymcgui.re

We hope that you'll join us for the next HWC Baltimore on May 10th back here at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center! It's an "Off-Week" for the usual HWC schedule. After that we're back on track with another "On-Week" HWC on May 31st!

HWC Baltimore 2017-03-22 Wrap-Up

Baltimore's Marty 2017 meetup for Homebrew Website Club met at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center on Mar 22nd.

Notes from the "broadcast" portion of the meetup.

martymcgui.re has been busy since the last meeting. Added tags and displaying webmentions to his site. Launched Screech, a micropub client for posting audio. Uses it to post an audio edition of the This Week in the IndieWeb as a podcast. Started looking into better reply contexts for sites with no microformats2 info, maybe starting with Soundcloud (which requires using their API to convert permalinks into embeds) or using Aaron Parecki's X-Ray.

brianey.com missed the last meeting, so it's been a while. Working on a new site at thebrianyoung.com, set up his WordPress network to include IndieWeb plugins, including things like accepting Webmentions. Some small updates to imnotwrong.com. Committing to more (of everything) for next time.

eddiehinkle.com started blogging again back in February. Dusted off Jekyll and started delving back into IndieWeb. Reads a lot of books and wanted to have that info on his site from Goodreads. Uses a Node.js script to dump Goodreads data into Jekyll _data/ folder. Added microformats to pages. Posts project 365 photos to site, a little bit of a burden since everything is still manual. Current project is micropub. Plan is to set up a Node.js "controller" because he wants to do more responses and interactive things. Today added "On This Day", showing posts from the same day in previous years

maryreisenwitz.com was in the other half of the room working on laser-cutting projects, but did talk informally about wanting to add e-commerce to her site.

We discussed the shutdown of App.net, the upcoming micro.blog, the challenges of building everything yourself, and some of the laser-cutting projects that our host Mary was working on for an event next weekend.

Left-to-right: eddiehinkle.com, brianey.com, martymcgui.re

We hope that you'll join us for the next HWC Baltimore in April back here at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center! Check back soon for the date!

Two for the Road w/ Old City (feat Hostel!)

Single Carrot Theatre 2600 N Howard St, BaltimoreMD, 21218

There are a thousand bars in Old City, and, every Friday at 9, you’ll spend the evening in a new one.

Digital Self-Defense: A Workshop

Space 2640 2640 Saint Paul St., BaltimoreMD, 21218

Ever worry that the internet knows more about you than you know about it? Companies, governments, and individuals can collect and track our communications and metadata whether we give informed consent or not. Meanwhile, those most vulnerable to these online risks may not have the greatest access to the information and resources to defend against surveillance and discrimination.

We can organize to change this, but in the meantime, there are also steps we can take to protect each other and to educate ourselves about what’s at stake. Learning to navigate digital space safely is a process, but you don’t have to get started alone.

Join us 3/19 for a workshop on digital privacy, inspired by the international Cryptoparty movement. We’ll talk about why surveillance matters for all of us and why you don’t need a technical background to start taking control of your online privacy. You’ll have a chance to ask questions, try out tools on your phone or laptop, and learn more about specific topics like mobile phone security, secure browsing, and more.

All people and all levels of experience are welcome.

The event will be FREE, however donations to help with the costs of the space and event will be welcome and appreciated! We’ll also have snacks available but welcome others to bring more to share, potluck style.

Learn more and (optionally) RSVP via our Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/158952891285370/

Notes from the "broadcast" portion of the meetup:

martymcgui.re - reworked his micropub server to support the media endpoint he was working on last time. also added venue pages to his site for event locations. made progress on event-posting micropub client (eventually will be released publicly). also added support for deleted posts with dt-deleted and meta http-equiv status 410 gone.

jonathanprozzi.net - refactoring site templates. spent a lot of time debugging some simple problems, h-cards. wants to figure out a way to track incremental work on website when other work things are crazy so threads don't get lost. wants to keep segmenting his Hugo template while maintaining mf2 stuff. goal is to get to working on appearance of his site theme.

jjuran.org - currently working on a CV on his site. first use of img srcset to feed high-res images to clients that want them. uses his own Perl-based static site generator that is "showing its age". working on his own programming language so he can spend most of his time writing code in a high-level language.

We discussed the challenges of building your own tools for fun vs. starting from the goal of posting more (e.g. via Wordpress).

HWC Baltimore 1/25 Wrap-Up

Baltimore's first Homebrew Website Club of 2017 met at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center on 2017-01-25.

Notes from the "broadcast" portion of the meetup:

martymcgui.re - mf2 for deleted posts. Packaged and released his first Python package, a Flask IndieAuth lib for micropub servers, has a proof of concept micropub media server built on Flask-HashFS.

brianey.com - lots of WordPress IndieWeb plugins setup on his site. Has IndieAuth working. Thinks micropub is working. Also integrating these into humor/fake-advice site imnotwrong.com, POSSE to Medium. Discovered that people still use StumbleUpon and got some good traffic from there.

jeancedre.com - wrote down list of things to do to refresh portfolio site. Chose new color scheme and brought it into Sketch to start designing. New website will mean new logo, layout, etc., and eventually business cards based on that. Not sure if wants to use WordPress "because it's overkill". Discussed how he wants to "use" the site, as the author, since WP provides a nice CMS that supports lots of workflows.

jonathanprozzi.net - did lots of refactoring of his Hugo theme into logical partials. Goal is to make a Hugo theme that supports IndieWeb via mf2 out of the box. Has also started making an ongoing list of all the changes he has been making, or wants to make, on his site.

We discussed the renewed IndieWeb interest in automatically archiving our posts and links to the Internet Archive, prompted by the content deletions and Twitter censoring of the new U.S. gov't administration. We also discussed the upcoming CryptoParty Baltimore happening in a little over a week on Feb 4th.
