How conversations work in the IndieWeb

⚠️ This entry is already over one year old. It may no longer be up to date. Opinions may have changed.

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.
