  1. #IndieWebCamp #Brighton:

    For my #hackday project I added a #serviceworker to my https://tantek.com/ home page with some #offlinesupport:

    1 Custom Offline page
    2 Precache home page, CSS, JS, and cache as you go photos
    3 Precache /contact & /pay pages

  2. ↳ In reply to Tantek’s note #LocalFirst #OfflineFirst #NoCloud #multidevices @IndieWebCamp #Brighton notes: https://indieweb.org/2019/Brighton/localoffline

    Thanks @aaronpk @martijnvdven @adactio @calum_ryan @sebsel @HeNeArXn @petermolnar @qubyte for the discussion!

    See you at #IndieWeb #hackday tomorrow!

  3. #IndieWebCamp Brighton:
    I proposed and am facilitating a session on:
    Local first vs.
    Offline first vs.
    no cloud,
    and multidevices.


    What’s the difference between #LocalFirst & #OfflineFirst?

  6. #IndieWebCamp Brighton @adactio adactio.com:
     The #IndieWeb is about a simple concept: You should have your own website. These days that seems almost disruptive. It’s hard to describe but it just feels good posting on your own site.

  10. ↳ In reply to @pvh’s tweet Wonderful co-hosting our hybrid #IndieWeb + Local-First meetup with you @pvh!
    Feeling inspired to build some #LocalFirst features into my site this weekend @IndieWebCamp Brighton. Thanks also for https://devdocs.io/ tip! Flight testing it soon :)

  11. 30 days til #TNFECS #Marin 50k. First “official” 50k race. Feeling reasonably trained for it. Last weekend’s 30k felt fine despite pushing, a day after running 7 trail miles. Travel makes training challenging.

  12. San Francisco cityscape backlit by orange sunbeams originating from near the center behind the buildings, against a blue sky with scattered clouds🌆 This morning @Nov_Project_SF. Felt like I was still recovering from the weekend. Just kept moving. And dawn turned into orange sunbeams like I’ve never seen before. #NPSF

  13. Sunday at #ChicagoMarathon2019, Brigid Kosgei set a new Women's Marathon Record 2:14:04!
    #NoHumanIsLimited. More inspiration. Went to Marin again, ran 30k+3500' to wrap up a 33 mile week. #2019_286 #20191013.

  14. Saw video of Kipchoge breaking the 2hr marathon this morning: 1:59:40 #NoHumanIsLimited. Incredible & inspiring to all runners. Despite being late to SFRC, I ran 7mi+1253' & neg splits. Great seeing @Amy_Leedham too! Another inspiration. It was a good day.

  15. ran to #NPSF this morning. @Nov_Project_SF 05:30 workout in darkness, in-between planks with Ali, and 06:30 workout while watching the sky lighten. Sunrise after, breakfast, and ran back.

  37. New issue on GitHub project “design-reviews”

    Proliferation of manifests at W3C

    Here at #w3cTPAC 2019 I’m learning that there are quite a few different manifest file format efforts by different groups for different specifications with different but often similar use-cases. Filing this design issue per @hober’s request to track the growing number of manifest formats and approaches to hopefully collapsing and reducing them.

    Here is a few I know of along with their individual TAG review issues.

    And one apparent need for a manifest: W3CTAG #218. There are likely others, please add more below.

    From a web author, developer, publisher perspective, it would be great if we could simplify the number of manifests, ideally one, perhaps with core properties, optional properties for specific use-cases, and a method of expanding each of those by separate working groups for maximum re-use and avoiding collisions / duplication of slightly different properties.

    This issue is intended as a meta-issue just to track the growing number of manifests.

    For specific proposals to provide guidelines to both spec and web authors about how to create some data and provide it in a manifest file, see: W3CTAG #95 (please do not mark as duplicate, I think these serve two different purposes). Thanks for your consideration!

  38. At #w3cTPAC this week: @CSSWG, #Future of @W3C, #WICG. Come say hi!

    Still reflecting on #XOXOFest themes & learnings. Particularly how much online abuse & harassment is growing.

    Let’s chat about this at TPAC, brainstorm if/how we can improve web building blocks to reduce harm, especially toward marginalized individuals & communities.

  39. RSVP yes to: aaronparecki.com’s post going to the @xoxo #indieweb and #xoxo-mastodon breakfast meetup TODAY 8:30am at Cup and Bar with @kevinmarks!

    Open to all indieweb #distributedweb #federatedweb fans & enthusiasts, join us!

    ⛰🏃🏻‍♂️ 15km & ~2k' in #Marin 8/31 to finish #August at 216km & 7116m. Grateful for a month of consistent training at home.
    Traveling a lot soon — HMU to #run in Portland @XOXO, Fukuoka @W3C #TPAC2019, Amsterdam @IndieWebCamp #ViewSource, NYC & Brighton IndieWebCamps, London #MozFest, St. Louis @WordCampUS #WCUS!

    August was a monthly distance running PR and my second highest vertical climbing month after last October’s 207km & 8932m (also only my second time running 200km+ or climbing 5km+ in any month).

    Got a late start that morning and drove myself directly to the Tennessee Valley parking lot. Having forgotten to check the #SFRC route direction, I ran the opposite way again, up Fox with less fog(2) than last week, down Coastal to an ominously overcast Muir Beach(3). Touched the water(4) and noticed blue skies in the distance to the northwest(5). I cut the route short via the beautiful Middle Green Gulch trail up to Coyote Ridge. From the Coyotoe Ridge peak(6) I could see the north side of Muir beach, and a thin blue line of clear Pacific Ocean over the clouds(1). Looking south the city was still covered by fog, just a few buildings and Sutro tower poking through(7). Ran back down Miwok(8) to the Tennessee Valley parking lot and up/down a bit of Marincello to reach 15km.

    I’ll be making good use of the few September and October mornings I’m home and joining up with runners (especially on trails) on my travels when missing Marin #trails(9). Hope to see you out there!

    I’m working on custom "Add to gCal" links next because Google Calendar (website) seems to require its own way of doing things. Maybe that’ll work for the Android app too? Maybe we can experiment tomorrow at HWC SF.

    Off-cycle Homebrew Website Club SF this week: https://indieweb.org/events/2019-08-28-homebrew-website-club
    Week after I’m hosting a pop-up HWC @MozPDX during @XOXO conf week!

    Still coding, will follow-up when iCal/gCal links work!

    First, another run

  49. Tantek taking a selfie at the top of Cardiac hill, southern view behind him of clear blue skies above tree tops partially hidden by the thick clouds and fog below.Fox trail under a thick fog, with quail and a bunny up ahead on the dirt trail with bushes on both sides.Curious bunny sitting in straw next to bushes on the side of Coastal Fire road on the downhill to Muir Beach.Heather cut-off switch backs partially occluded by fog, lush trees in the foreground on the side of the hill.Coastal view trail in a lush misty forest with most of the trees leaning to the right with the wind.Moss covered trees trunks above ferns, diffuse lighting from the forest canopy.View from Cardiac hill, fairly barren in the foreground, a telephone pole rising up with a slight tilt, trees in the distance barely poking through the thick cloud cover.Looking down on Pirates Cove beach and across the Pacific Ocean, diffuse white light from the clouds, with a sign in the foreground indicating 350 feet to the cove, with various symbols.Tennessee Valley as seen from Coastal Fire road descent: green hills, Tennessee Valley trail winding them past a lagoon to the beach between two cloud covered hilltops.Miwok cut-off view of green hills down to Tennessee Valley shrouded in fog.☁️⛰⛅️ 20+ miles & 4k' of low quiet fog, quail(2) & bunnies(3), lush green hills(4) & forests(5,6), and finally sunshine above the clouds at Cardiac hill(1,7) before running back(8,9) to where I started and up/down another hill(10).

    Being prepared brought more confidence than last week. Started later than planned, yet before #SFRC. Took my own route up Fox trail(2), down Coastal Fire road (stopping only for a curious bunny(3)), thru the Redwood creek woods, across Santos meadow, and up the Heather cut-off switchbacks(4).

    Made good time up Coastal view to the patch of misty forest where most of the trees have grown leaning with the wind(5). Moss covered trees rising from a floor of ferns(6), only a few hundred meters of forest canopy in the middle of an otherwise exposed trail. Still, such relaxing #greentime before finally emerging into the sunshine.

    The climb to Cardiac felt faster and smoother than usual. As a runner I’ve become grateful for fog and overcast skies, yet it was still nice to get some sun at my goal peak where I could look back on the clouds I had climbed through(7). After a brief snack break and saying hi to the volunteers at the Headlands50k aid station, I decided to chase the racers back down the way I came, all the way to Pirates Cove(8).

    Pirates Cove also felt faster, and less scary this time around. Kept encouraging the racers as they passed me on the climb, and chased them down the Coastal Fire road, stopping to snap a greener than usual Tennessee Valley for this time of year(9).

    Returned to Tennessee Valley parking lot at almost 18, hiked/jogged up Miwok trail to more foggy valley views(10), and scampered back down to round out my long trail run. Finally got my 20. ✅

  50. ↳ In reply to Tantek’s note The next step is to add a link or button on the #indieweb event like:

    📆 Add to Calendar

    to #interoperate with existing apps & services via .ics download (@IETF #openstandard #RFC5545). @schmarty & @gRegorLove do this. I’ll add code for my events too

  51. ↳ In reply to Tantek’s note The #indieweb has #federated events and RSVPs using #Webmention and #microformats2 h-event.

    That Homebrew Website Club SF event was a demo thereof:
    https://tantek.com/2019/233/e1/homebrew-website-club-sf (note RSVPs)

    Quite good, yet as observed, insufficient for Google Calendar users

  52. ↳ In reply to @dietrich’s tweet Replacement is a good goal @dietrich.

    The #indieweb recognizes replacement may be impractical for a person or their friends in the short term.

    The indieweb strategy is to federate, interoperate, and build bridges to transition in parallel.

    Let’s begin

  53. ↳ In reply to @dietrich’s tweet @dietrich yikes! Hope you feel better soon.
    Please share any cures you came up with!

    Planned to do a half marathon after Saturday’s 11 miles of Marin trails, ended up a mile-ish more. Slow start, but drank/fueled and felt pretty strong in the second half of Golden Gate Park. Spreckels lake sparkled in the sunshine(2). Reached the beach(1) and felt encouraged to go further. Ran up to the Sutro Baths for a beautiful view(3) and thru Lands End for a clear view of the Golden Gate!(4)

    Happened to look upward in the Sea Cliff neighborhood and see an old air raid siren(5). Against the deep blue sky it reminded me of Depeche Mode’s Music For The Masses:

    By the time I ran up Lincoln Boulevard to the bridge, Karl the Fog had enveloped the tops of the towers(6). Ran down to the Warming Hut for another view(7) and over to Crissy Field Marsh(8).

    Struggled up the final climb to the Presidio, and up to the top of Arguello Blvd, then easy cruising all the way home.

    25+ mile weekend done! ✅

    I planned to start at 7am at the Tennesssee Valley parking lot, arrived at 7:05. Overcast as expected, yet much colder. In contrast to last week’s quiet fog bank (https://tantek.com/t51y1), the wind howled through the valley, bending treetops and swirling up dust like I’d never seen before. I’d only worn shorts and a t-shirt and wouldn’t last 10 minutes in that wind chill.

    I sat in my car in parking lot for almost an hour waiting for it to warm up a bit and for the wind to quiet down, berating myself for having forgotten a long sleeve. Just before giving up and going home, I decided to double check the shallow depths of my trunk.

    Tucked into the bottom of a beach bag I found an SF Marathon long sleeve. Threw it on, and took off up the fogged-in Marincello trail(2), connecting via Bobcat trail(3) to Alta trail’s lush peak(4) instead of the windy coastal route I’d planned.

    The fog thickened on SCA trail(5), where I barely caught a view of the Golden Gate bridge(6) being overwhelmed by the fog. My favorite part of SCA trail is a brief lush forest tunnel(7) that I decided to stop and capture (usually I just run through it grinning). Soon after capturing the Golden Gate Bridge from a hill(1), I saw a couple of faster friends from the SFRC running crew and realized I had been running the opposite direction. Finished a short loop up the Bobcat trail(8), then returned down Marincello to the parking lot and barely made it to Good Earth just before 11, last call for breakfast sandwiches.

    11 miles done ✅ (not the 21 I planned, calling this mental game a draw)

    Afterwards I shared with a few trail running friends how I’d felt starting out, and they reminded me (correctly) to look more on the positive side:

    “Good job sticking with it. Deposits in the grit bank” [that’s a good metaphor to keep in mind.]

    “You toughed it out, nice job keeping it going in less than ideal conditions.”

    Even if that run was a mental draw, knowing I got at least something done will be good to remember next time I face a similar challenge, perhaps in a race.

  57. IndieWebCamps Timeline 2011-2019: Amsterdam to Utrecht

    At the beginning of IndieWeb Summit 2019, I gave a brief talk on State of the IndieWeb and mentioned that:

    We've scheduled lots of IndieWebCamps this year and are on track to schedule a record number of different cities as well.

    I had conceived of a graphical representation of the growth of IndieWebCamps over the past nine years, both in number and across the world, but with everything else involved with setting up and running the Summit, ran out of time. However, the idea persisted, and finally this past week, with a little help from Aaron Parecki re-implementing Dopplr’s algorithm for turning city names into colors, was able to put togther something pretty close to what I’d envisioned:

    New Haven  
    New York          
    Los Angeles    
    San Francisco      
    2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019

    I don’t know of any tools to take something like this kind of locations vs years data and graph it as such. So I built an HTML table with a cell for each IndieWebCamp, as well as cells for the colspans of empty space. Each colored cell is hyperlinked to the IndieWebCamp for that city for that year.

    2011-2018 and over half of 2019 are IndieWebCamps (and Summits) that have already happened. 2019 includes bars for four upcoming IndieWebCamps, which are fully scheduled and open for sign-ups.

    The table markup is copy pasted from the IndieWebCamp wiki template where I built it, and you can see the template working live in the context of the IndieWebCamp Cities page. I’m sure the markup could be improved, suggestions welcome!

Muir beach facing south, fog covering a lot of the hill.Looking up Fox trail disappearing into the fogMuir beach facing north, fog obscuring the houses onthe hill.It’s not always sunshine and flowers. Sometimes it’s endless #fog. Or miscommunication and isolation. Still grateful for 11 miles and nearly 2k' at #SFRC to #MuirBeach(1) and back.

    We can choose to be frustrated or grateful. To blame (ourselves, others), or be patient, accepting, and choose to be the best we can in the circumstances. We can anticipate conflict, or be open to hope and reconnection. It starts inside with the outlook we choose, and manifests with the words and actions we choose.

Started earlier this morning than usual, in darkness. After seeing Bryan, Hannah, and a few others disappear up the steps, I ran up the Mill Valley streets alone. Dark & seemingly empty while everyone slept, the #fog was particularly eerie, silencing any sounds. Whenever my headlamp lit up the fog’s swirling droplets, it looked like The Upside Down from Stranger Things. Hard to capture on camera(2).

    Slowly the sky lightened, and the sun crested the fog in the East(3). As it rose it started to disappear behind another layer of clouds, orange tipping the tops of the lower clouds(1). When I reached the #MtTam #EastPeak it had risen above those #clouds as well(4).

    Such a contrast of experiences, starting in darkness, running up nearly always alone, then seeing the sunrise, friends on the trails, and gathering at the top(5,6).

    The #run down was quite scenic as well, descending right back down into the clouds obscuring the forest and town below(7).

  62. Reflecting On IndieWeb Summit: A Start

    Table of Firefox stickers, pronoun pins, IndieWebCamp & microformats stickers. Over a month ago we organized the ninth annual IndieWeb Summit in Portland, Oregon, June 29-30. As frequently happens to organizers, the combination of follow-ups, subsequent holiday, and other events did not allow for much time to blog afterwards. On the other hand, it did allow for at least some reflection and appreciation.

    Day 1 Badges, Pins, Shirts, And Breakfast!

    Lillian at the table of IndieWebCamp t-shirts. Saturday morning June 29th went relatively smoothly. We had everything setup in time. I finished preparing my “state of” outline. Everyone signed-in when they arrived, got a badge, chose their color of lanyard (more on that later), pronoun pin(s), and an array of decorative stickers to customize their badge.

    Breakfast buffet containers of scrambled eggs, potatoes, vegan scramble, etc. For the first time we had an anonymous donor who chipped in enough in addition to the minimal $10 registration fee for us to afford IndieWebCamp t-shirts in a couple of shapes and a variety of sizes. We had a warm breakfast (vegetarian and vegan) ready to go for participants.

    Captions, Codes of Conduct, Safety, And Photo Policy!

    Another first for any IndieWebCamp, we arranged a captioner who live-captioned the first two hours of Summit keynotes, introductions, and demos.

    After welcoming everyone and introducing co-organizers Tiara and Aaron, I showed & briefly summarized our codes of conduct for the Summit:

    In particular I emphasized the recent addition from XOXO 2018’s Code of Conduct regarding safety vs. comfort, which is worth its own blog post.

    Tiara, photo policy lanyards of different colors, and policy summary. Another Summit first, also inspired by XOXO (and other conferences like Open Source Bridge), color-coded lanyards for our photo policy. Which was a natural lead-in for the heads-up about session live-streaming and where to sit accordingly (based on personal preference). Lastly, pronoun pins and a huge thanks to Aaron Parecki for arranging the logistics of all those materials!

    I told people about the online tools that would help their Summit experience (chat, the wiki, Etherpad), summarized the day 1 schedule, and thanked the sponsors.

    Video, Outline, And Always Aspiring

    Here’s the 8 minute video of the Welcome. I think it went ok, especially with so many firsts for this Summit! In the future I’d like to: reduce it to no more than 5 minutes (one or two rounds of practice & edit should help), and consider what else could or should be included (while staying under 5 minutes). That being said, I feel pretty good about our continuous improvement with organizing and welcoming to IndieWebCamps. As we’ve learned from other inclusive conferences, I encourage all conference organizers to explicitly cover similar aspects (excerpted from the online outline I spoke from)

    • Code(s) of conduct (with multiple organizers and contacts)
    • Photo policy (with clear indicators to self-select)
    • Pronoun pins (or stickers)

    Consider these a minimum baseline, a place to build from, more than goals. Ideally we should aspire to provide a safe and inclusive experience for an increasingly diverse community. Two more ways conference organizers can do so is by recognizing what the conference has done better this year, and by choosing keynote speakers to provide diverse perspectives. More on that with State of the IndieWeb, and the IndieWeb Summit 2019 invited keynote speakers.

Spreckels Lake with green water, a few radio controlled model boats, and eucalyptus trees on the opposite shoreGeese sleeping on the shore of Spreckels LakeOcean Beach on a cloudy August day, a few people in jackets in the foreground, Cliff House in the distant backgroundSunday long #run on tired SFRC legs in Golden Gate Park, stopping at bodies of water to stare and contemplate. #Cloudbank over green Spreckels Lake(1), so quiet even the geese slept-in(2). Kept running down JFK to the bison paddock, stopped to look but they were hiding. As I turned to run back, saw my pal Emilie approaching on the path, and instead ran with her to Ocean Beach. Classic San Francisco summer #Fogust, people wearing jackets at the beach(3).

    Felt surprisingly strong for the day after SFRC, better than the last time I did something similar (Bay to Breakers in May https://tantek.com/t50a1). Over a year since my last training run all the way through Golden Gate Park to the beach and back. I’ve started using music and earphones on my road runs again, restarted 3 weeks ago at my last long run before the SF Marathon. Kept up 4-5 minute run and 1 minute walk intervals. Had planned on about 7 miles, felt good so I ran the rest of the way home.

    8.7 miles done. Back on back-to-back ultra training runs.
