Replied to What Are You Tuned Into? (cogdogblog.com)
I can also not help to wonder how they listen so much! But that is the beauty of this media form, it being really the only one I know of that you can partake of with attention, while doing something else.

Hi Alan,
A rich list, adding to the already overflowing pool of podcasts. I like to listen to a range of non-Edu podcasts. Even with two 40 minute plus commutes every day I still can’t get through much. Like you I really only listen to podcasts while driving. There are a couple of things that I find useful.

Castro, is a podcasting app that lets you sub to many podcasts but triage the ones you want to hear into you “queue”.

The other is Huffduffer, this is a bookmarklet that will pull individual episodes into your own RSS feed which you can then sub to. It will even rip YouTube videos to audio and host the mp3 for 30 days. https://huffduffer.com/johnjohnston is mine. Now I am off to huffduff some of your suggestions:-)

My class had great fun with the skulls last week.

Paper Plate Skulls

We took an idea from Darrell Wakelam to make some Day of the Dead skulls from paper plates.

We then took it a bit further

Frank & Aaron I did a little more digging. I could not see any kind info in the Rest API representation for a post. Then I saw:

Posting capability via custom REST API endpoint has been removed due improved Micropub support

from: dshanske/indieweb-post-kinds

At the moment I’d be more than happy to post as a draft and set the kind myself. I suspect that I’d reply using the WordPress editor, like now, rather than Drummer anyway.

Replied to Publish to WordPress with Drummer by Frank Meeuwsen (diggingthedigital.com)
Why not crosspost to your WordPress blog with your Drummer CMS? When you publish a new thought on your Drummer blog, you can also post it on WordPress? I think I have a first version of a script in Drummer that makes this possible. It makes use of the global root object to store sensitive data of yo...

Frank,
This is really exciting. Thanks so much. I am going to try asap.

Replied to Drummer has a feature called the glossary … by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (collect.readwriterespond.com)
I love the idea of a glossary for my site. For example, when I say Ben Collins, it would be cool if it would automatically link to his website, similar to how Google+ worked. I sometimes do this at the moment by linking to my own posts. For example, when talking about care as the first principle, I ...

Hi Aaron,

Drummer has a lot of interesting features, I am kicking the tyres a little. When I started this blog I used pivot, a flat file php blogging system. It also had  this sort of feature, although they didn’t call it a glossary. I would think someone could write a WordPress plugin to do the same sort of thing.
A previous outline & blog system from Dave Winer, Fargo, had a post to WordPress feature. I am wondering if this might be possible for Drummer too.

Replied to Command Line — The MagPi magazine by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (collect.readwriterespond.com)
MagPi / RaspberryPi put together a guide to getting going with command line.

Hi Aaron,
This is a useful guide. I remember  Oliver Quinlan, a guest on Radio EDUtalk talking about the eloquence of the command line compared to pointing and grunting.
I enjoy using the command line, often with Raspberry PIs, but it is easy to miss some of the basics which this guide covers well.

I might need a WordPress plugin than converts all links to run them through the Wayback Machine. Mansy days it feels like 90% of my blogged links are dead.

I used amber for a while & stopped for reasons i can’t recall. Used the archive option. Currently got a JavaScript that sorts broken links to my old, now gone school site where a lot of my early links pointed. I now use On This day, thanks Alan, to tend my links most days.

This is Vinay’s preferred option, and the only one he thinks is scalable and realistic. It’s “numerical” by which he means quantitative, not qualitative. You simply imagine that every human being has equal right to the planet’s “material bounty”, and then divide up what’s available, and how much they can emit.

Hi Doug,

Thanks for this link, I’d not heard Vinay Gupta before. A good listen although some of the verbal style grated a bit.  I’d heard the idea of fair shares, in relation to air miles, before and liked it. Possibly because I very seldom fly;-)
