Somewhat inspired, I deleted my Slideshare account. Although I have issues with another company simply inheriting my data, I realised that I have not used the space for a few years and saw no reason to maintain a historical presence there. With my focus on a ‘domain of my own’, I have downloaded...

Took me a while to delete my empty slideshare account, Finally change password (did I have one?) and there is a link at the bottom. Needed to set a password via a link, logon with that and delete account. I also had a wee look at my linkedin settings, which was interesting. The tangled web of accounts and data we have on the internet is a mess. I think I may have another slideshare account from a long time ago.

Today we’re announcing an all-new P2 beta as a standalone product, powered by http://WordPress.com. We’re excited to have you try it out: https://wordpress.com/blog/2020/08/06/improve-your-remote-collaboration-with-p2/

We had the p2 theme in Glow Blogs and I though it had a lot of potential. I wonder if running your own p2 will be on the cards? I’d love to see it back in Glow.

We removed the p2 theme from Glow a while back and it hasn’t been updated for a few years now.

Update, this thread: Tom J Nowell on Twitter: “Interestingly enough this is in their public theme svn folder as P2020, which reveals why they aren’t letting you install it locally” / Twitter and this tomjn/p2020: A self hosted fork of P2 2020

Hey Pressto! Conference 2020 – A WordPress and ClassicPress conference which happens only on Twitter  #HeyPresstoConf20 organised by Phil Barker (@philbarker) and Pat Lockley  (@pgogy).

It seems to follow on from the 2020 PressEdConf Conference ( I took part in the 2018 one)

Plenty of interesting ideas, for example,  the strong mention of classic WordPress and the Environmental Policy.

A while back I wondered about participating in PressEd using a blog and bridgy that might be an interesting way to take IndieWeb ideas to Hey Pressto.

I didn’t find the lack of video for pupils a problem during daily lockdown classes. This post goes over the reason why video might be a problem and lists some ideas for compensating.

also keeping in mind some people are voice shy, and some people have noisy home environments

Although from a higher ed perspective it all rings true from a primary perspective.
