How conversations work in the IndieWeb
Desmond Rivet already wrote some pretty good articles explaining the IndieWeb (of which I already shared one on my blog) and now he adds another one about “How to Have a Conversation on the IndieWeb”. He explains things like Microformats, Webmentions and how those things play together. It’s a bit technical, but if you ever heard of words like “API” or “REST”, you’ll probably understand it.
I’ll say this again, because I think it’s kind of cool: microformats transform a plain, vanilla, HTML-based personal website into a RESTful data service.
