Homebrew Website Club - The Americas
One big HWC, for anyone in the Americas(or who is just available) who wants to dial in. This week, we have a special topic: "Facebook and Instagram down? No problem...I have my own website."
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-2021-10-06
Who's Running This Thing?
- Host David Shanske
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:
- 5-10 minutes: Introductions, especially from first-timers
- 10-20 minutes: Demos of personal website breakthroughs
- 1-2 minutes: Take a picture (you don't have to be in it)
- 5-10 minutes: Informal Vote on topics for freeform discussion
- Rest of the time: Share and discuss ideas
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.
