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.

Hi. There has not been too much nostalgia posting here lately (well actually not much at all, so there). Maybe last June? But who cares if I feel like dipping into my tech past, it’s there. I…

Hi Alan,
One of the first 623 sites! Blows my mind. Way beyond early adopter.

There should be a badge or medal.

#tdc3188 #ds106 I now have heard how to pronounce Phenakistoscope (I still can’t say it). This reminds me of a rabbithole @cogdog sent me down and lead to

CSS phenakistiscope

&

More phenakistoscope.

I might have to play again now…

4/15 #HeyPresstoConf20 For fun try adding /wp-json/wp/v2/posts/ to any WordPress url or /wp-json/wp/v2/posts/?per_page=1 will get you the latest post or /wp-json/wp/v2/comments for 20 recent comments or /wp-json/wp/v2/search?search=splot will return search results for "splot"

Alan, you might like Multi WP Blog search from a while back. Local storage could make it actually useful.

There you go, try guess the nature of this blog post from a word heavy vague title.

I think I’d guess that a post with Glitch, Remix, and Exquisite Corpse in the title is one that is I’d be interested in;-)
Glitch is a pretty interesting place. Interestingly I made something there a while back of which Kevin was the only user!
Excited to see what range of things you get up to with glitch.

Hi Alan,
Love the random. Had a wee go at forking and having a googlesheet as a source. It might be a way of folk making their own without having to edit html…

I always like the random…

I’ve a vague idea you could run this from a google sheet allowing folk to generate more of this sort of thing.

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.
