Guiding Compass Homebrew Website Club

June 1, 2022

The first HWC of the month, let's talk bigger picture IndieWeb, beyond our personal websites. The “guiding compass” is a twist on a standard HWC with an emphasis on community collaboration. This is a new, evolving format.

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, come join us!

What will we talk about at a Guiding Compass HWC?

  • Get input on and share communal projects you're working on
  • Big picture web trends and the IndieWeb ecosystem
  • Current wins/gripes from people outside the community
  • Break through sticking points on IndieWeb projects
  • Share what you're working on /itches
  • Discuss IndieWeb projects and ideas
  • Connect and get feedback across disciplines
  • Inspiration from outside the IndieWeb
  • Get a hand testing things you need
  • Work on collaborative Wiki gardening

This week's Etherpad:

Notes for first-time attendees

  • It's fine to join any time during the event, and head out whenever you need to, so don't worry if you're running late or can only come for a little while
  • You can stick around for as long as the room is active
  • We take collaborative notes using Etherpad - add yourself as an attendee and use the Etherpad to share links and take notes as we talk
  • Ask questions in the IndieWeb chat channel, usable from a browser, IRC, Slack, Discord, or Matrix
  • We take a picture to include in our This Week in the IndieWeb digest, which is syndicated to Twitter - you don't have to be in the picture
