"15. Thank you for being here. And maybe the next time you present some information, share it with a nice little WordPress website and see how it goes! Oh yeah, if you want to see this presentation on a WordPress site, here you go: https://t.co/vT8Fe2m9Xn #pressEDconf19… https://t.co/l0qvy2SSuP"

WordPress for presentations is a great idea. I couldn’t follow live so appreciate this more than a pp. WordPress can post replies to tweets too;-) #pressEDconf19 #IndieWeb

Bookmarked Nothing Fails Like Success by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (Read Write Collect)
Jeffery Zeldman argues that in being unable to pay mortgage associated with the web, we have become indebted to the mob that is platform capitalism. This has led us into the money trap, which demands unrealistic rewards that care more about clicks than community. Zeldman’s suggestion on how to fix...

Aaron points to Nothing Fails Like Success (A List Apart).  

Aaron links to several fellow travellers reactions that make great reading too.

Aaron’s own blogging has gone a long way along the IndieWeb path and is a excellent one to follow.

Those big time motivational speakers who talk about starting to learn with a problem you want to solve have never really accounted for serendipitous learning. Is everything as simple as problem -&g…

Hi Alan,
This is interesting stuff, you had me at serendipitous😉

I think the IndieWeb is worth raving about, I’ve not really figured out all the technical details, I tend to install, see if it works and forget.

Even more exciting is with the IndieAuth plugin you can log in with your own blog as opposed to relying on twitter or github.

I love to chat about some ideas around aggregated courses and the IndieWeb that are floating around my head inspired by micro.blog.

Hi, my name is bava, and I have an Instagram problem.  I never planned to get on Instagram, and I was even less inclined to enjoy it. But 616 posts and 18 months later I’m realizing I am…

Hi Jim,
I’ve been enjoying Duke’s life by proxy on instagram. It is the sort of thing that keeps me there despite the algorithmic post order, many adverts and lack of friendly API. (The best thing about flickr imo is that it has an API that can be used by mortals).

Have you seen:

Which pulls your instagram into your own blog, indieweb PESOS style.

Personally I just post photos to my blog first, often via micro.blog, and then manually post them to instagram.  I use the tag #manualposse if I remember.

I wonder if the problem is part of the solution? As I slowly explore the IndieWeb ideas and tools I find that quite a few don’t do exactly what I want. So I slow down. Think. Tweak. Often delete a draft.

For example, I am starting to understand Indigenous, I’ve Micropub posts set to be drafts. I don’t like the way my theme presents these posts. I remove the auto generated excerpt, tweak the title and perhaps the quote. This helps me think the post through. It becomes a little less knee-jerk.

I’ve a long way to go. I get distracted, meander, I click and like, but I think the IndieWeb is making me a happier blogger.

Replied to Experimenting with turning on comments for a week (Doug Belshaw's Thought Shrapnel)
I noticed a general downwards trend in the quality of online comments.

Hi Doug,
Glad to see this. There has a been consistent drift to twitter & other social for comments. I think this is a pity for several reasons.

I am responding to this with a webmention, which it looks like you have adopted. I’d hope that the quality of comments received via webmention might be better given that the comments will be published on the commenter’s own site. These might be less knee-jerk or throwaway than a tweet or toot?

There are still a few wrinkles to be ironed out of webmentions but I have high hopes that they will be more widly adopted and be a good thing.
