  • Jacky Alciné v2.jacky.wtf This is my entry for the quiet hour during the homebrew website club meetup this week. I’ve come across some interesting posts and wrote some thoughts I’d like to share with people. Neil Mather indirectly wrote a post about the “feudal” Internet that we live in and it definitely is going in my bookmark list of things to reflect and ground me when working on the Web. There’s early consensus around defining content warnings for the IndieWeb with Koype Publish being a potential adopter sometime soon. I provided a mock up of my site’s redesign as a motivator to work on Koype Publish and Koype to have its homepage driven by Microformats2. I wrote a bit about how I wanted that page to work in particular. I need to work on something to drive Microformats2 for specific “special” pages on my site though.
