Listened A podcast about microblogging by Andy from andysylvester.com
I have created a podcast which is linked to this post (about 4 minutes long) discussing some recent microblogging experiences of mine, and I refer to a “secret project” related to microblogging – take a listen and see if you want to participate (tease!)… http://andysylvester.com/wp-content/...

🎧 Listened: A podcast about microblogging by @AndySylvester, Looking forward to more episodes. Also the ‘secret project’. Recorded in the car, I’ve though about trying that a few times. Going to listen (huffduffed) to episode 1 to see if there are tips.

Listened 008: Blogging at Scale with Google Sheets from Reclaim Today
Jim and Tim sit down with John Stewart of the University of Oklahoma to discuss a recent solution he blogged about in which he's using Google Spreadsheets and APIs to drive a fast and scalable blogging infrastructure to support a course with 1,000 students.

This was a fun listen. Although I am reasonably committed to having my blogging on my own domain there is something appealing about this.

Listened Tide Episode #107 from tidepodcast.org
This week, Doug and Dai discuss inter-railing, Android’s digital wellbeing controls, building ethical technology, how hacking works, taking time off chat apps, personality types, and more!

The first long podcast I’ve listend to in a while as I’ve mostly been listening to microcasts (some great ones listed on Microcast.club).

I’ve known Doug & Dai for a good few years, although I don’t think I’ve meet Dai in person, so it is nice to hear the informal chat going weaving round the edu (and not so edu) tech.

The most interesting link for me was PixelFed a federated image sharing platform, powered by the ActivityPub protocol. An instragam like service avoiding some of the drawbacks of instagram. I signed up, johnjohnston on PixelFed. It looks early days, but a not-yet working link to an API gives me hope of the possibilities of POSSE. I am still hoping that the new version of Sunlit will fill Instagram space for me, but I’ll try PixelFed for a while.

Listened The Abundance of Nature Our Daily Bread 01 by Jeremy Cherfas from Eat This Podcast
In the 1960s, using the most primitive of tools, an American plant scientist demonstrated that a small family, working not all that hard for about three weeks, could gather enough wild cereal seeds to last them easily for a year or more.

Fascinating stuff, looking froward to the series.

Listened An Indieweb Podcast – Episode 6: WordPress and Types of Posts by David ShanskeDavid Shanske from David Shanske
In this episode, Chris and I discuss how Post Kinds mapped Indieweb types of posts to the WordPress system and why, the defined as opposed to implied types set up, and avatars. While this is very WordPress centric, there are a lot of discussions here relevant to a broader Indieweb audience about add...

I’ve enjoyed the first 2 thirds of this (will get the third on my next drive home). Of particular interest was the way David Shanske has developed the Post Kinds plugin to be easily extendable by making another plugin. 👍 I’d like to have a ‘walks’ post here with custom content (gpx track and gallery like these). I wonder if I could manage that? Perhaps over the summer.

Listened Setting up WordPress for IndieWeb use by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich from Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko
I spent some time this morning doing a dry run through setting up a suite of IndieWeb plugins on a fresh WordPress installation. Going off of a scant outline I talked for almost two hours describing IndieWeb functionality as I set it all up. Hopefully it will provide a useful guide to newcomers to t...

A really clear guide to setting up your WordPress for IndieWeb use. Available as a screencast and audio file. I’ve listened to about half the audio so far. I would love to have had this when I started adding plugins in a random fashion.
