Seems to me that your home page is great as a professional About page. Just add some markup like an h-card. You have a contact form, which is important, what more do you need?

An IndieWeb Book Club is a really interesting idea for people who like that sort of thing, but I am a bit Groucho Marx about clubs. I may get around to the book, or I may not, but right now I will watch from the sidelines.

Replied to a post on medium.com :

Very hard to believe that Tanner Campbell chose to put his very IndieWeb idea about podcasting on Medium rather than on his own domain. Of course, the idea will never work because the big players don't need it and the small ones won't hurt anyone by witholding their labour.

This news of a site for IndieWeb on Textpattern is very exciting. I used to use TXP back in the day for one of my sites, but moved it to WP. Maybe I'll move it back ...

Getting ready for two days of IndieWeb in beautiful Nürnberg.

Chris Aldrich's discussion of the rewarding discovery that a friend has read something that you are reading, before you see it in their feed, is spot on. It is fun. And it reminds me of two things. The most important is that I really need to get to grips with my tags, both in Zettelkasten and, perhaps even more importantly, in Pinboard.

The whole business of bookmarking, storing copies, highlighting and annotating remains a source of confusion for me. There are just too many moving parts. I quite like Chris' suggestion of making it a topic at a future IndieWeb Camp. I've got two projects on the go, either of which could be my thing in Nürnberg in a couple of weeks.

Have you taken a look at indieweb.org? There are people doing lots more than hinting.

Twitter weirdness. Ability to follow links seems to have changed. In Safari, with mu-block, I can click on a link shared directly by someone, but not on a link in a retweet. Is this a change in behaviour, or something I simply never noticed before? Or both.

Managed to find some time to join [virtual Homebrew Website Club](https://indieweb.org/events/2018-08-22-homebrew-website-club) today. If you're interested in and have a moment, come and join us.

It says here https://indieweb.org that "The IndieWeb is a people-focused alternative to the 'corporate web'", but that's just a start and of course there is more to it than that. More a state of mind than a thing, I'd say.
