Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Presented by Sarah Hibner

The ephemeral nature of the web and lack of preservation within media silos. We tend to save bookmarks and excerpts. But not entire pages.

Metadata is a Love Letter to the Future

Sarah Hibner

Meta data lets you turn around and do more with the information and there are different approaches to digital bookmarking.

Archive data for personal use, if it’s published you may run into copyright concerns. I frequently wonder how Evernote clippings don’t run into this issue.

As time goes on technology changes and media formats disappear.

Media preservation should be a goal of web users and developers. Should I save everything as .txt files? Print out every page?

Notes from listening to a podcast may be more valuable than the podcast itself after it disappears.

Peter Molnar mentioned his post about recovering old versions of his website that were lost over time.

Codeless automation tools and the IndieWeb + How Webmentions and the web works

Peter Molnar petermolnar.net discusses the flow in sharing content between proprietary platforms and our websites. Its a big mix of silos and the details change based on what APIs are available from these platforms. However, when the platform provides tools for sharing the process can be seamlessly automated. However, it requires that the service support the feature.

Webmention’s API converts and adds content inline to our websites.

Mebmention

Micropub is an API that our software can interact with. In my case WordPress adds a micropub generated to post to my database. An example of this would be using a service like Quill.

IndieWebCamp West

Spending the weekend learning about owning my own social media and online content at IndieWebCamp West. My biggest takeaway so far is that there is still an internet outside of the corporate silos. Integrating our website’s to share content back and forth automatically if we want, or manually if we prefer.
