My latest thought was to set up an email-based one-time password system so people could log in, RSVP, and select whether they want their RSVP to appear publicly or not.
I will probably experiment with this on my own site, but I could also see it as a Bridgy-like service that generates an RSVP post with mf2 and sends a webmention on your behalf.
Laurie: I'm not sure I understand your comment about they/them. Those are non-binary/gender-neutral pronouns and aren't used across the board by trans people. E.g. trans women who want to be identified as she/her use she/her.
That's interesting about it being triggering. Certainly if someone isn't comfortable with sharing their pronouns, they don't have to. I suspect that's a really small minority, though. The overwhelming response I've heard from trans people online and in person is that it's a good thing.
It is a small thing for cis people to do, which I think is all the more reason for us to do it. It shouldn't be a thing that only trans/non-binary people do.
Understandable. Next year we should have the meetups at least monthly, perhaps every two weeks, depending on interest and availability.
*whispers* Maybe don’t have popovers on your site at all.
Maybe don’t have an email subscription popover when I click the unsubscribe link in your email, B&H?
I wonder if wavelist.xyz could be involved here somehow, too.
Hope you can make it!
You’ll appreciate they had Bleed American higher, though. They had Clarity, Bleed American, Damage, Futures.
Hello and welcome to the indieweb! I think there is a tendency to think of those two principles from a developer perspective, like they are telling people to learn how to write HTML and do all the nitty gritty stuff. That isn't the intention, though. We can always improve the documentation on the wiki and would love to have you involved in the conversation.
National Blog Posting Month. The goal is to write a post each day in November.
Woo, 10 for 10 on #NaBloPoMo! It has been fun getting back into writing as well as finding other participants and reading them.
One societal change/advancement that we are discussing is what we should do about some people amassing obscene wealth while others go homeless. Framing this as “eyeing another man’s pocket” is disingenuous.
Sorry this took me a whiiiile to get around to, but I set an initial meetup on December 11th. Would love to meet y'all and talk!
Welp, Twitter is closed.
Very good points. Moving a couple times since 2015 has not helped, either. I am pretty hopeful San Diego is a longer term destination for me. I remind myself that it takes time, and try to put myself out there more.
That's a hyperlink.

Where can I find your 2012 novel?
The first draft — including the tada — came in at 277 characters. Only had to tweak it slightly to get 280 characters.
