This weekend I attended the first Oxford Indieweb camp, kindly organised by Garrett.

Day 1

Due to an early start, and not enough coffee, I had left my phone at home, and so couldn’t log into anything. Two factor auth on things is great, but I think I’ve just spotted a flaw.

Anyway.

I didn’t go with much of a plan, except to meet some techy folk. So that much I achieved.

I had some thoughts about maybe looking into federalisation – cross user login, friend/follow etc. But I also sensed this was going to likely be more than was achievable in the time I had.

During introductions, I mentioned to folk that I was a contributor to Known and gave the project a bit of a shill, since I figured it might be interesting to folk by way of giving them a head start on a few things. So, spent the day helping one of the attendees write their first plugin for it.

After a day of discussion and coding, we retired to a local pub for some more relaxed conversation.

Day 2

Rain stopped play, which was a shame. Many folk decided to stay home. Nevertheless, had a pleasant morning chat over coffee and bagel with Beverley, hiding from the rain.

After braving the shops, and meeting up with a catch up with other friends, I went home and started sketching out some federation / Vouch ideas I had after some interesting discussions.

Great weekend of techy fun, more again soon, please!
