Liked The Logos, Ethos, and Pathos of IndieWeb by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (boffosocko.com)
The IndieWeb is attempting to remove these barriers, many of them complicated, but not insurmountable, technical ones, so that we can have a healthier set of direct interactions with one another

This is a lovely essay on the IndieWeb. Too many quotable sentences:

Venture capital backed corporate social media has cleverly inserted themselves between us and our interactions with each other.

Bookmarked My Indie, Integrated Feed Reader (colinwalker.blog)
For a few years now, it has been a goal (or more of a dream) to build my own feed reader which integrates directly with the blog making it easy to perform indieweb actions such as likes and replies.

This is a really beautiful looking setup. The best thing, I’d guess, is the integration with Colin’s blog using indieweb actions. The UI looks great. The video of mobile looks perfect.

The upside of a DIY system would be it works just they way you want it. I wonder if something similar could be done for WordPress, using FeedWordPress as a reader perhaps.

Liked Happy 10th Birthday, Bridgy! by Ryan BarrettRyan Barrett (snarfed.org)
https://snarfed.org/10th_birthday_cake.jpg Today marks 10 years to the day since I first launched Bridgy, my little IndieWeb side project to connect social networks and personal websites. Happy Birthday, Bridgy! I’ve always loved the internet, but I’m n...

Bridgy is part of the IndieWeb suite of tool I’ve been using it since 2015 without full understanding but with full appreciation. Along with the Post Kinds Plugin and the Syndicated links one has very much changed my blog.

Bookmarked Working Around Post Kinds Plugin Lock-In by Ton Zijlstra (zylstra.org)
I’ve been using the Post Kinds plugin for a few years on this WordPress site. It allows you to easily style a specific type of posting (a like, bookmark, reply, rsvp, read, check-in etc), it automatically pulls in the relevant information form the posting you’re reacting to, and adds the right m...

Although I’ve found the post kinds plug-in amazingly useful I’ve wondered about the problem of moving away from it.

As I review old posts I do find some surprises in the way the display of posts has changed, having the post kinds “stuff” in the post would help I think. I’ve no idea how I could do that if I wanted to.

Replied to a tweet by Kenny Pieper (Twitter)

'Twitter did something that I would not have thought possible: It stole reading from me. What is it stealing from you?' https://twitter.com/janinegibson/status/1412044936476872704

1. Reading your & other blogs.
2. Resources, Twitter is good for easy short term sharing not for long term discovery.
3. Time

Posting this via my blog, where it belongs and is organised by me in my online memory.

Replied to RE: My Ratio of Signal to Noise by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (collect.readwriterespond.com)
I really enjoyed your assessment of where you are currently at. I have wondered lately about my commitment to capturing my breadcrumbs lately and can really relate to your point about it being exhausting. I wonder if something like Roam is any less exhausting? I am left thinking that with so many of...

Hi Aaron,
I do hope you do not get too exhausted. I find you breadcrumb trail useful and interesting. In some ways breadcrumbs are a more productive vein to mine that piles of full articles or loafs.

Replied to Re: Browser Bookmarklets for Giving Credit by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (collect.readwriterespond.com)
I am all in on this Chris, but I just can’t seem to get it to work. I created the bookmarklet, highlighted the name and clicked the bookmarklet, but there was no pop-up. I must admit, I do not use many bookmarklets, only Alan Levine’s really. I may therefore have to dig into this a bit further a...

Hi Aaron,

I am glad you posted this. I like bookmarklets. I run one a bit like this via AppleScript on my mac. This has an advantage of letting me add a keyboard to send straight to the clipboard.

I am going to add the indieweb mark up to that using Chris’s script for reference. Like you I couldn’t get it working at first I had to mess around with he single and double quotes. This works for me:


javascript:(function(){let text = "";if (window.getSelection() != '') {text = window.getSelection().toString() + '\n';}var tocopy = '<p><small><cite class="h-cite via"><abbr title="via">ᔥ</abbr> <span class="p-author h-card">"' + text + '"</span> in <a class="u-url p-name" href="' + location.href + '" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" >' + document.title + '</a> (<time class="dt-published">' + document.lastModified + '</time>)</cite></small></p>';;d=document;d.body.appendChild(Object.assign(d.createElement('textarea'),{value:tocopy})).select();d.execCommand('copy');})()

I’ve not got much of a handle on JavaScript so YMMV.
