Fedizens of the #Fediverse ..
I want to attract attention to the #weblite hashtag, as something important is happening!
A better alternative is now emerging on #Codeberg ..
New #weblite overview post: It's (or rather it will be) a family of specifications for a lighter-weight Web without scripting and focused on being simple enough to implement relatively easily, but still mostly compatible with existing simple sites.
The current plan is for the draft specs to go in the Weblite Codeberg organization. We should be able to accept contributions without a Codeberg account via email, though it may be more cumbersome than we'd like.
The main hub for conversation is currently the #Weblite tag on fedi, which isn't really optimal as hashtag searches are sometimes unreliable and don't necessary see everything. We'd like to get a better place to talk for that reason, maybe IRC/XMPP/Matrix, maybe mailing lists, maybe something else.
The specs currently planned for the first round are XMLite, HTMLite (based on XMLite's data model), CSSLite, and a bundle of recommendations for protocol and URI support. Standardizing HTMX as a user-agent feature for scriptless interactive applications more sophisticated than forms and links has also been floated and seems like a popular idea.
The main people who have actually started work on things are @email@example.com (who's most of the way through writing the first draft of the HTMLite specification as I understand it) and myself (I've sketched XMLite in informal terms and I'm currently admin-ing the Codeberg organization). Please pitch in if you have anything you'd like to contribute, use the #weblite tag so we can see it!

TIL that iphones regularly transmit the Mac addresses of devices attached to the same WiFi network to Apple. In addition to their geographical location of course.
So essentially you can be tracked across all locations where an iPhone is near you (and you haven't disabled your WiFi).
Monthly reminder that Twitter is awful for privacy (and in other ways). Switch to Mastodon instead and take back control of your data.
