Hey everyone, out of an abundance of caution regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus), we have decided to switch this March 18th meetup to an online-only meetup.
We will provide a Zoom video conference link 20 minutes before the meetup on the event page and in the IndieWeb chat.

A canvasser for a Democrat running for Congress came by. They asked where I was leaning and I said “leftist.” They responded “ooh boy” and paused. I laughed a bit and asked if that was a good or bad reaction. They said “well, change is hard.” They didn't sound judgmental, but I’m not sure what this means about the candidate or my answer.
- “Avoid feigning surprise.” When someone says something like “I’ve never heard that you can do x,” instead of replying “You’ve never heard that?!” take a moment to revel in the fact the person is about to learn something new and cool. Let that frame your response.
- Avoid “well, actually...” if someone says something not quite correct.
- Avoid subtle -isms like “so easy my grandmother could do it.” That’s a subtle exclusion of women and older people.
Edit: these are based on the Recurse Center’s social rules.

Hi, Joe. Both! Trends more towards personal sites but we have some IndieWeb for business examples: https://indieweb.org/IndieWeb_for_business
I'll be there this weekend, too. Look forward to meeting you!
Agree wholeheartedly. I'm looking forward to seeing it again.
I’m hanging out on Beatsense playing some music if anyone wants to join in: https://beatsense.com/limbo#/

Aside (or not?) — screw this white nonsense from the author:
“This is not Colin Kaepernick’s brand of entertainment. Pratt’s endeavor boasts a uniting message.”
