Liked Re: GDPR Violation: ScribD acquires PII on 500M users in a deal with LinkedIn by Aaron DavisAaron Davis
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.

Replied to bookmark Site.js by Aaron Davis
Small Technology Foundation has created a simple library for setting up your own site quickly and easily on the web. This is discussed further in a presentation by Aral Balkan at Creative Mornings Istanbul on 26 June, 2020.

I spend a couple of hours last night trying to set up Site.js on a Raspberry pi, I got it working locally, but fell at the https cert and I think my firewall.

Looks fascinating as does Small Technology Foundation Personal Web Prototype-01: a mobile personal web server which is a portable server you can carry about in your pocket. Put together from a pi and some bits I wish I could afford to buy the bits for that. Reminds me a wee bit of the piratebox.

Replied to Poll: Has The Meaning Of The Word “Blog” Changed? by Aaron DavisAaron Davis
I wonder if the idea of what constitutes blogging is different for different people in different points in time? I wonder if it is as simple as talking about ‘posts’ and ‘blogs’? Or maybe what I doing here with post kinds is even blogging at all?

See also podcast and episode.

I think blogging is a good description of what you are doing Aaron. Since I installed Alan’s Posted Today plugin I’ve been re visiting a lot of ancient posts here. Lots of my early blogging consisted of notes, bookmarks, replies and likes. Just not formerly organised into kinds.

I voted for Posts.

Liked I miss the conversations that used to happen on blogs by Aaron DavisAaron Davis
One of the things that I have found useful is recording comments on my own site. For sites that use Webmentions, comments are automagically notified, however for others – like your own – I copy and paste the content. These reply posts add another dot to join together, to link to and build upon.
Bookmarked What If Web – My #pcPopUp2020 Presentation by Aaron DavisAaron Davis
In A More Beautiful Question, Warren Berger talks about the power and potential of different types of questions. One type that stands out is the simple strategy of asking ‘What If?’ Here then are my thoughts on what if the web were different? #pcPopUp2020 What if people had some sort of ownershi...

#pcPopUp2020 was one of the many online things I’d normally have paid attention to that I’ve missed. Aaron is using the Thread Reader App Micropub publisher which looks interesting too.

Replied to Allowing the Space to Fail by Aaron DavisAaron Davis
Early on in the crisis, our daughter cared a lot about learning online. However, as time has passed, this interest has dwindled. Although this has been difficult, it has has also highlighted the importance of a space to fail in order to learn.

Hi Aaron,
I am seeing a change in engagement with my class over time. I am still getting roughly the same numbers turning up to daily Teams meetings, but a slowing down of ‘handing in’ of tasks. I wonder if this is about not having classmates to spark off each other. Being physically away from the classroom meaning it is easier to skips things and other family routines becoming more important. It is really hard to tell.

Replied to No Deep Work in Shared Spaces by Aaron DavisAaron Davis
I have learnt that it is very difficult to do ‘deep work’ without a wife, especially when you are trying to work in a shared space.

I am not doing deep work, just trying to teach online. Despite the fact I am fairly tech literate with a good connection and no children at home I am finding things really time and head space consuming. I’d be in an even worse place if I didn’t get amazing support from my wife.
