Quite surprised how many people decided to exit Facebook completely. People are realizing how much info they are making public by being on it

@cristomc haven't dug in to vidali yet, planning to support mircoformats2? what about webmention?

pinging you
@santiago to see if federation is working (from mastodon)

jf2.rocks is up, more importantly validator.jf2.rocks is up and running

ben.thatmustbe.me <does this get translated to a proper link?
ben.thatmustbe.me/ < does this?

want to just test this quick to see if just adding webmention sending to mastodon would do all of the federation TO indieweb that is needed

Apparently Microdata is getting updated w3.org/TR/microdata/

Didn't think it was a thing anymore really

Those in please review the minor changes to JF2 spec. IANA requested additional text in security considerations section.
Requesting update tomorrow.


@mmn would love some feedback about GNU Social on the above

Hello, Ben Roberts from the Social Web Working Group and Social Web Incubator Community Group and the W3C (that second one is open to the public if you are interested in joining). I was looking for some feedback.

In yesterday's Social Web Incubator Community Group telcon, I brought up the issue of WebFinger. The current implementations have had some differences in how they are implemented. Also there are several limitations to it. Its important to invest....

After a long process, the W3C Social Web Working Group charter has now been extended by 6 months so that ActivityPub can incorporate implementation experience, eg in Mastodon. github.com/w3c/activitypub

One place for talking details is the SocialCG, meeting in 1 hr. (Regrets from me for the first half of this week's meeting, sorry.) w3.org/wiki/SocialCG/2017-06-2

@maloki would love to talk some time about thoughts on simplifying and potentially replacing webfinger. Ideally keep the current format but extend it to bring in the indieweb, and simplify implementation significantly.

An updated w3c working draft of JF2 just went out. Now includes JF2 Feed profile. w3.org/TR/jf2/#jf2feed

@maloki @Gargron, If we were to experiment with webmention for some type of federation, as that's a larger change would you want a hand in it, or would it be better to prototype separately and come to mastodon with patches? Different people prefer it different ways.
I think the first one might be to check for salmon OR webmention endpoint in order to be able to follow them.

I feel like the first thing that is needed is the ability to add some additional URLs to your profile
