Last Friday: #IndieWeb Leaders gathered (📷 @iwontsignuphere) and discussed improving our community, our outreach, and even our website, which updated that night, right before the IndieWeb Summit: indiewebcamp.com
Leaders are those who have stepped up and organized an IndieWebCamp in the past 2 years, or have hosted at least two Homebrew Website Club meetups (and documented them, with at least one photo).
Regardless, we organized our little mini IndieWeb Leaders pre-summit in the open including remote participation: https://indiewebcamp.com/2016/Leaders and took notes in our main channel: https://indiewebcamp.com/irc/2016-06-03#t1464986967180
It was really great to have a chance to talk about community issues and improvement that we are all passionate about, without having to take time to do so during the IndieWeb Summit itself.
We concluded with the key steps to flip the switch on our site & logo updates (Aaron distributed new stickers), and discussed what steps to take to potentially switch from indiewebcamp.com to indieweb.org. The way we as a community openly discussed and agreed on the logo change made sense for this too.
Afterwards we celebrated our first successful IndieWeb Leaders Summit with snacks, drinks, and video games at Ground Kontrol.

(Written while sitting next to rhiaro.co.uk who asked if I automatically send webmentions to my person-tags and I realized I did not! So I just added support for it. Starting with this post, any person-tags on my photos get homepage webmentions at publishing time!)
