I followed micro.blog’s suggestion to use emoji for post about books & casually extended it a bit. @mrkrndvs is thinking a bit deeper. Not hard to strip emoji out of titles? Converting to Post Kinds more so?

At the end of last year I started using Good Reads again, but quickly found I want to record what I’ve read but don’t want to write a review.
I am much happier writing one line notes/reviews here. I’ll probably manually POSSE to Good Reads, but consider this where I keep the record.
I’d really like to map posts with the book emoji, 📚, to the Read Post Kind automatically. That means posts from micro.blog would get sorted here without me having to go to the dashboard and edit. I do have a function on the blog to add a wwwd category to any post containing colon wwwd colon but I don’t know how to set the post kind in the same sort of way…
Unlike Safari’s ITP, however, Chrome’s adblocker has been created in partnership with the ad industry. The feature only blocks what the company calls “intrusive ads”, such as autoplaying video and audio, popovers which block content, or interstitial ads that take up the entire screen.
The whole article is interesting. Especially the anger from the ad companies about Apple blocking tracking.
I’ve stuck with Safari as my main browser over the years. First because it was quick, then AppleScript. I got used to the developer tools, as a non-dev they seem the simplest. Next the integration with mobile Safari. Now it looks like there is another reason.
And if I do want to use a different browser I can open pages from Safari in another browser from the develop menu.
📚 Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan Very enjoyable, pulled me along. Detail from several fascinating aspects of history (crime, war, merchant ships, diving) in the period. The drawing together at the end happened at a faster rate, perhaps too quick? ★ ★ ★ ★
BBC Radio 4 – The Reservoir Tapes Subscribed to the RSS feed. I really enjoyed reading Reservoir 13 last year, starts like a crime novel and then turns into a flow from the characters and place. 📚
the @wp_glasgow meet up tonight was good. A chance to sit with Gutenberg for a while beside other folk was very useful & has slightly mollified my knee jerk grumpiness.
With the lovely emoji tags on micro.blog I wonder if someone could create a WordPress plugin or snippet that would apply an #indieweb post kind to different emoji in posts? I’ve got one that applies a category if it contains a string, but I don’t know how to set post kinds.
