Gardens and Streams: Wikis, blogs, and UI -- a pop up IndieWebCamp session

April 25, 2020
Sat 10:00 - 11:00am (America/Los_Angeles)

There has been some sporadic conversation about doing impromptu IndieWebCamp sessions and thus far we've yet to organize one. Given our physical distancing and the dearth of bigger IndieWebCamps, I thought I would propose this single topic stand alone camp session to get something rolling. I'd invite others to propose and schedule others in the future.

Session Topic

We'll be discussing and brainstorming ideas related to wikis and the IndieWeb, user interfaces, functionalities, examples of wikis and how they differ from blogs and other social media interfaces, and everyones' ideas surrounding these. Bring your ideas and let's discuss.

  • Hashtag: #GardenAndStream
  • Session facilitator: Chris Aldrich

This is just a single one hour IndieWebCamp-like session (though we have the option to go over a bit since there isn't a session following us) where we'll brainstorm and discuss a particular topic. Hopefully the weekend time will be convenient for a wide range of people in Europe and North America who have previously shown interest in the topic. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Resources

To prepare for the session we'll be using the following:

  • Zoom: for the audio/video conference portion
  • Etherpad: https://etherpad.indieweb.org/GardenAndStream (for real time chat, questions, and note taking during the session)

  • Ton Zijlstra www.zylstra.org/blog/2020/04/13907/ This sounds like a good conversation to have. I have been and am experimenting with the blog / wiki combination basically since the start of this blog. And I dislike the disconnect between that and my note taking system, as well as the always manual creation of wiki content (though I used to have a script that pushed blog content to the wiki for further evolution way back in 2004) RSVPed Attending Gardens and Streams: Wikis, blogs, and UI — a pop up IndieWebCamp session Join the Zoom call: link to come This is an online only event.
