Homebrew Website Club
Welcome to Homebrew Website Club San Francisco
we do hardware - very small position sensors so you can tell how things are moving
I wanted to show an update of the distributed verification idea
if you go to kevinmarks.com you see green ticks on all my links because it is verifying them
I work for medium, and I run http://words.werd.io/ on medium now, to self-dogfood
at medium there are lots of people whose job is to make the editor work well, which is better than I could do
You'll notice that the green checkmark on the twitter link on my words.werd.io page because we do rel="me"
the interface on medium is designed to encourage longer responses, and the out-of-network ones are hidden by default
people used to count number of comments on their blog, but now they tend to turn them off
why are you putting red X's on people's sites?
well, the red X is more of a debugging thing - probably the green is a more positive message
but the red X has been useful in spotting links to places that aren't right
lots of the ad-blockers will also remove social media tracking and comments too.
My site is https://calumryan.com - I get rel-me green on twitter and on github
my site is on digital ocean and all done in Jekyll
the photo page is done with a php backend
I have a service worker setup so it works offline, which was why I went to https in the first place
I like the touch by showing weather
I get the weather from weather.io at the time of posting and render it in
I have my own frontend - it gets location from the browser and weather from weather.io
I got my webmentions working with both webmention.rocks and RSVP to tonight's page https://calumryan.com/note.php?noteId=328
