@bradenslen You make some interesting points. I think one of the things that has gotten us where we are is because often time when a community has a specific primary project as it's focus, its creates a monoculture around that. (Read on [Principle: Plurality(https://indieweb.org/plurality) for more on that). That said, I think we have reached the point in growth with various projects including a commercial product in Micro.blog that it is time to develop 1 (or 2, for plurality sake) turn-key IndieWeb CMS solutions. I think by building and producing such projects now, it is unlikely that it will overtake the current plurality of options. This is also true because even the most simple one click install will never be as easy as Micro.blog, which means we will always have many options for the IndieWeb.
@bradenslen Hey, coding not required, by thee or me. We've got LOTS of people around here who can do that stuff. As a talented explorer, you have a clear idea of where you'd like to get and when you get there, maybe you'll be able to help boost me up that last rocky path to the summit. And along the way, maybe we're gonna have a fun ride, whether we reach the very top or not.
@jenett What is easy for somebody with coding knowledge may well be incomprehencible to others. I think we often forget that. That and most bloggers just want to write and find a way to interact with others more. They don't want to nursemaid their blog script, they want to write.
@bradenslen Absolutely 100% important to remember!! I've been here since the Kickstarter and have seen tons of new features added. Manton kindly added the Archive feature to my blog. None of the other features have been implemented, because I have not taken the time to try to wrap my wits around all the suggestions. Yet I have actively participated in the community with my writing. I'd rather spend my time writing, rather than trying to figure out how to get the fancy stuff working. But if the platform is ever to expand beyond its very narrow focus of the technically agile folks in the Apple world, it will need to be very easy to use for the average person on the web . . . much easier than it is now.
@jenett still got web mentions on the todo list
