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-2021-02-24, archived to https://indieweb.org/events/2021-02-24-hwc-americas.
Who's Running This Thing?
- Zoom Roadie David Shanske
- Host Tantek Çelik
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.
