Homebrew Website Club - The Americas
One big HWC, for anyone in the Americas who wants to dial in. Let's talk about what we would like to do in 2021 now that it is here.
What's Homebrew Website Club?
Homebrew Website Club is a meetup for anyone interested in personal websites and a distributed web. Whether you’re a blogger, coder, designer, or just someone who wants to improve their presence on the web, this meetup is for you.
Join a community with like-minded interests. Bring friends that want a personal site, or are interested in a healthy, independent web!
What Are "Chat" and "Etherpad"?
If you have questions, ask away in the the IndieWeb chat channel, usable from a browser, IRC, Slack, or Matrix.
At each HWC, we take collaborative notes using Etherpad. This week's link is https://etherpad.indieweb.org/hwc-2021-02-10
Who's Running This Thing?
- Wrangler of 100%-Organic Zooms: David Shanske
- Host: Maxwell Joslyn
Timing and Agenda
HWC almost always overruns its nominal 90-minute scheduling. You're free to stick around as long as the Zoom room is active.
Here's a typical agenda as of October 2020:
- 5-10 minutes: Introductions, especially from first-timers
- 10-20 minutes: Demos of personal website breakthroughs
- 5-10 minutes: Vote on topics for freeform discussion
- 1-2 minutes: Take a picture (you don't have to be in it)
- Rest of the time: Share and discuss ideas from voting
If your website supports it, post an indie RSVP. You can also log in with your website and click “I'm Going” below.
If none of that means anything to you, don't worry about it: just show up! The Zoom meeting link will appear shortly before the meeting time.
What Else Can I Attend?
Check events.indieweb.org for next week's meetup, including those in European time zones.
I’ve updated my footer so the copyright dates include 2021. I’ve also updated the Webmention button so that it now points at my standalone endpoint for those who may not see or want to use the input box on individual posts. Finally I modified the text that appears on both the standalone endpoint as well as the individual post boxes on each post so that the same text works to properly describe both cases.
I also spent some time trying to fix my fragmention/fragmentioner, but I’m not quite there yet.
