Got closeish: trying mysqlite: https://mercury-script.glitch.me n…

  • looking into indieping.me again
  • getting weird spam googlebot hits to /s?
  • TIL wordpress generates robot.txt by default
    17:55 I’m getting wierd google bot crawl results to ?s
    or /search/…/rss. They are series of
    characters. They don’t actualy show up in my
    search console. Is this some sort of attempt to
    game google?
    17:55 *** Loqi MODE +v dougbeal
    17:56 I’m thinking of keeping the bot away with
    robots.txt

Weird Indieweb Idea of the Day: Guestbooks

I think if you feel nostalgic for something, then it has some seed of intrigue left in it. For guestbooks, I wonder how you might innovate them…
One thought I have is—sometimes I get Webmentions to the root page of my site. I might make a ‘guestbook’ page that list any comments or links sent…

I’ve sent invite/webmetion/RSVPs to root domains, for lack of anything better to do.
Thoughts About Assertion Workflows by David ShanskeDavid Shanske

This is a preliminary technical workflow proposal for assertions, which would be needed for badges, endorsements, and other ideas. It is based on thoughts that I had listening to the badges session at Indiewebcamp NYC 2018.
Scenario 1: Individual creates criteria and wants to assert that other indiv…

Throwing out some thoughts to see what sticks

Issuer posts criteria
Recipient posts proof and webmentions criteria
Issuer validates and posts award and webmentions Recipient

Private/ephemeral/shared secret?/client specific? information in webmention?

geofence = GPS+Bounding

2 stage assert workflow for IndieMon

Monster Creator posts geofence (venue) [criteria] [Monster deployment post?]
Claimant posts check-in [proof] and webmentions geofence (venue)
Monstor Creator validates check-in, webmentions Claiment, includes list of Monsters [award, shared secret]

Claimant posts Monster [award, shared secret, proof] to (venue)
Monstor Creator validates Monstercheck-in, webmentions Claiment, includes list of Monsters [award, shared secret]

Decentralize
IndieMon webring? check-in to each site

Centralize
Venue clearing house (proxy-to-silo? swarm?)

assertion brainstorming
location
basic HTML req, GET, PUT, POST
indiewebify.me -> some measurable action

Its Hobbes The (microblog.omnigroup.com)

It’s Hobbes the cat! He’s buddies with Calvin, of course, and he lives with Michelle Knee, Software Test Pilot.
While Calvin’s nickname is “bumper car,” Michelle writes:
We won’t discuss Hobbes’ nickname considering he got it from waking us up at 4:30 am to ensure we get up on time… …

Hobbes looks so intense in the last picture. 😻
