Maique joins us this week from Lisbon. He worked for two decades as a photojournalist before becoming an independent photographer. He talks about the challenges of doing photography when you can’t travel, and how he copes as a new dad with the flood of baby photos.
We also chatted about the upcomi...
Well that was nice. It is comforting to hear a professional photographer talk about the value of non professional photos in the A Day in The Life microblog challenge.
Join hosts Martin Feld, Andrew Canion, and Jason Burk as they make their way through topics such as technology, coffee, books, culture, and more from different hemispheric views. Plus, cool accents! ;)
Listened: It’s Very Internet! @canion, @Burk & @martinfeld with guest @macgenie. Really enjoyed this one. The micro.blog section was good and The Oldest Thing In Our House” was great. Has me searching the house! Super show notes.
Thanks @adders and @macgenie for another great microcast. Really enjoyed the journalist take on blogging and social media. A lot of food for thought for educators too.
@manton & @danielpunkass speaking of Tumblr as competition for mb. I think the a differentiator is the relative calm of micro.blog, both in interface & community. Lots more to chew over regarding WordPress & Tumblr.
I started to write the odd weekly recap of my view of micro.blog and it misfired in a very confusing, to me, way. The post went through to the micro.blog app as a titled post. I had kept the character count down to under 280. The post was a status post. It should have appeared in all of its glory on micro.blog.
I looked at it for a while and then headed over to the micro.blog slack community to bother @manton. Only after that I looked again and thought it through.
My script that removes titles in RSS from my status posts if the post <280 chars didn’t account for emoji being counted as multiple chars. It wasn’t till I’d posted to slack that I figured this out.
I’ve figure out how to work round this, replacing emoji with one character using a slight change to this function from @mdhughes. I’ll probably have to wait until next week to post another recap and see if it really will work.
I’ve updated this gist: functions that have do with micro.blog and microblogging that live in my child theme’s functions.php
It is getting time for a rethink of how the tubes are connected here, I need to simplify a little I think.
I am not sure I really grok this, but it sounds like a great idea.
