  • Tantek found that ATOM is much bigger than just html for posts. “hence my Atom feed only has 3 items now, while my home page has 16.”
  • Discussion about atom/rss versus html + microformats. There were concerns about performance (lots of people querying an index.html page). Tantek points out h-feed ( in response.

What is it

A summary of interesting (entirely subjective, obviously) indieweb related things that have happened during the week. It could live on the web, be sent as an email, or both.


There are lots of great things happening but I'm not sure it's very easy for someone on the outside (and I include myself in that) to see what's going on. I subscribe to a couple of other weekly 'roundup' type emails and quite like being able to see at a glance things that might interest me.


  • IRC logs
  • Twitter search
  • Google search (date restricted)
  • Wiki changes

Questions for indieweb folks

  • Do you think it's useful?
  • Any objections to the title / suggestions for alternatives?
  • Have I missed any obvious sources?
  • Should I include the IRC summaries?
  • Should I include the active pages on the wiki?
