Webmentions are Hot

Drüben bei A List Apart ist ein Artikel von Chris Aldrich erschienen, der sich mit Webmentions befasst.

Put simply, Webmention is a (now) standardized protocol that enables one website address (URL) to notify another website address that the former contains a reference to the latter. It also allows the latter to verify the authenticity of the reference and include its own corresponding reference in a reciprocal way.alistapart.com

Im Indieweblager ist Chris kein unbekannter, umso mehr hat mich gefreut, seinen Text in der angesehenen Webentwicklerpostille zu lesen. :-) #ischkennleud

Seit dem Beginn meiner Beschäftigung mit dem Indieweb und ...

Hystery Repeating…

Here's a string of tweets I wrote this morning, a topic that's dear to me, but I never found the time to make a concise blog post out of it. So for now, the raw bites.
(Not to diss Flash or the Flash-developers or the creative work that got acomplished back then and helped to shape features of the web that came after. Also not to diss the JS-frameworks or -devs currently who likewise now are dabbling in stuff that the web stack by itself is only slowly beginning to adapt, waiting ...

IllHIll - Holger Lamers

In my series of "Thank you"s regarding the community around the Beyond Tellerrand Conference, next is Holger.

Not only has he done one of the epic conference shirt motives himself, but has printed several editions of the yearly shirt editions.

Holger has been on nearly every Beyond Tellerrand conference, with his screen-print machine and fine collection of shirts, caps, sweats, you name it, and for years now we always have some chats in the breaks, and usually I find myself with the urge to buy something off his table sooner ...

The Dangers of Being a Web Developer - Jens Oliver Meiert @ Beyond Tellerrand Düsseldorf 2018

view directly on vimeo

I've been following Jens' output for over a decade now. Not regulary, but every now and then some of his smart observations and thoughts surface in my information stream.
So I was excited to see his name in the speakers list, and his talk about the pros and cons of being a web worker did resonate with me.

So thank you Jens, for reminding me why I am doing this for two decades now. And again, that I am not alone, even though I often feel isolated when working in clients work, feeling like I ...

How to Build an Atomic Bomb - Mike Monteiro @ Beyond Tellerrand Düsseldorf 2018

view this directly on vimeo

Wow. It was on the historical date of May 8th, that Mike Monteiro held this intense talk, reminding each and everyone who cared to listen of the conseqences and the possible impacts of the "I'm only doing my job here" mentality.

This talk gave me several goose bumps, having seen "5 came back" only recently, and still seeing this one shot of the inside of a german concentration camp, where right after the allied troops went in, a film team documented not only the unimaginable horror and piles of dead and starving ...

The indieweb privacy challenge (webmentions, silo backfeeds, and the GDPR) - Sebastian Greger

A thorough article on the current challenges, technically and ethically, regarding the use of elsewhere published public data that can be regarded as 'personal data' in the GDPR/DSGVO sense. Data that will be published for example by pulling in likes, shares and comments posted on Twitter here in my blog, as 'reactions' alongside with 'real' comments on my posts.

As Sebastian writes

Just the fact that I can aggregate a “facepile” showcasing everybody who clicked “like” on a tweet of mine does not mean that my motivations for doing so are more important than their right to stay in control

The Illusion of Control in Web Design - Aaron Gustafson

Recognizing all of the ways our carefully-crafted experiences can be rendered unusable can be more than a little disheartening. No one likes to spend their time thinking about failure. So don’t. Don’t focus on all of the bad things you can’t control. Focus on what you can control.
Start simply. Code defensively. User-test the heck out of it. Recognize the chaos. Embrace it. And build resilient web experiences that will work no matter what the internet throws at them.alistapart.com

WorkingDraft Rev. 336 zur DSGVO

Podcast mit Sebastian ("the designer"), Balthasar ("the lawyer"), Joschi ("the developer") und Hans ("the host"), zum Thema Nummer Eins, das gerade für große Verunsicherung in meiner Web- und Kundenblase sorgt, natürlich kurz vor Ablauf der Deadline.

Anhören!

Nach meiner persönlichen und sicherlich nicht repräsentativen Erfahrung haben die wenigsten Kunden/Webseitenbetreiber eine Idee davon, was da alles mit inkrafttreten der DSGVO zum 25.5.2018 getan werden muss, um unfallfrei durch die zu erwartende Abmahnwelle durchzukommen. Datenschutzerklärungen, Auftragsdatenverarbeitungsverträge, Verfahrensverzeichnisse… nicht wirklich hilfreich ist, dass nun, kurz vor knapp, natürlich auch aus allen Ecken teils widersprüchliche Tips und Empfehlungen kommen und derzeit viele Angebote, Generatoren ...
