So not really a read example

tantek: I'm still in the midst of building/refining some read flow, but I'm archiving most online article feeds as http://boffosocko.com/kind/read/?type=status?type=link. I hadn't considered indicating whether or not I read an article as a hardcopy and typically link to the URL version.
#
chrisaldrich2
I've been trying to scrape the entire article as a means of archiving it at the time it was read, but then providing a link and auto redirect after a second or so to the original article. (This last part is off while I'm doing some troubleshooting at the moment)
#
chrisaldrich2
I do like the idea of taking into account hardcopies of physical magazines/journals as I still read a lot that way.
#
chrisaldrich2
I've been tinkering at a lot of this for the past couple of weeks so that I can attempt to "own" all of my online/magazine/book reads for 2017 and hopefully have some useful metadata at the end of the year as a result.
#
chrisaldrich2
sometime in the next week I hope to have more of it documented as well.
#
GWG
Chrisaldrich, for your information, after the next location update, I will be doing some maintenance on Post Kinds

GWG
Chrisaldrich, after I finish the Simple Location work, I will likely be working on Post Kinds maintenance
#
chrisaldrich2
Evening GWG!
#
chrisaldrich2
Sorry I missed you the other night. I had looked at simple location ages ago briefly, but had never dug into the code. How's that going?
#
GWG
Chrisaldrich, I am completely redoing the functionality. I was going to ask if when I am reasonably happy, if you might be willing to test it
#
chrisaldrich2
I've spun up a few test sites in the last week for testing various things, and one of them already has simple location's name on it. Just tell me when.

I was looking at Google's timeline feature. Makes me want to do some more trip reports.

#
chrisaldrich2
I've been noticing google's timeline feature more lately as it sends me notifications to verify some places. I know it's there, but I don't go back to look at it very often however....
#
GWG
It has updated trips I took in 2013
#

Makes me want to write up old trip reports.

I thought about making an entry for my birth.
#
chrisaldrich2
Kind of like Facebook's timeline functionality?
#
chrisaldrich2
I keep meaning to use the tag: resume on posts that should be compiled onto my resume ultimately...
KevinMarks_ joined the channel
#
aaronpk
Interesting. What kinds of posts would you want in your resume?
#
GWG
Chrisaldrich, sort of, except I would curate it.
#
GWG
I'm curious about that myself, Chrisaldrich
#
chrisaldrich2
some posts with either interesting writing, work related things, awards, etc. could be tagged resume so that they're easier to remember to put onto it later. Though I could see doing something like GWG's suggesting with additional curation
#
GWG
It is as much for me as anyone else...like scrapbooking
#
chrisaldrich2
Or perhaps additional hidden fields within a post that could be displayed in an archive-type of view that could be made to be resume-ish.
#
GWG
Although I like the idea of my date of birth being an easter egg on my site.

One could also have a thought-resume of things that have been most influential in forming one's particular mode of thinking throughout a lifetime...
#
GWG
Chrisaldrich, intriguing
#
chrisaldrich2
/read /watch posts, etc... might make going through the prior year's posts more interesting to make a sort of personal year-in-review exercise as well.
#
GWG
Chrisaldrich, I definitely need to do more posting
#
chrisaldrich2
also when one has thousands of posts, where is a new reader going to be pointed to? Lots of old seemingly mundane posts, or the best-of-the-best in some sense.
#
GWG
If I added a bunch of classic content, I'd likely do a summary post.
#
chrisaldrich2
Lately, I've been posting everything I read online, but that doesn't mean I actually enjoyed or appreciated it all, much less recommend it all.
#
GWG
Chrisaldrich, that was my problem.
#
KartikPrabhu
what is timeline?
#
Loqi
The timeline briefly documents key IndieWeb terms/ideas/concepts, implementations, specifications, and other achievements; people involved, and dates/URLs for each https://indieweb.org/timeline
#
chrisaldrich2
I've been trying to figure out a way to indicate what I'd recommend as most worthwhile...
#
GWG
I tried to do that with like vs bookmark
#
chrisaldrich2
GWG: that kind of gets me into the territory of multi-kinds... though I suppose I could always add additional microformats to a single post for some of the metadata
#
GWG
Chrisaldrich, multikind is a project I am not sure I am ready to build
#
chrisaldrich2
but post-kinds doesn't make doing that easy. There's the "display it this way" portion and then there's the here's the wider semantics of what the post is about in a broader sense. I could have bookmarked it, later read it, and then further favorited/liked it.....
#
GWG
Theoretically that would be three posts.
#
chrisaldrich2
That's possible too...
#
chrisaldrich2
alright... time for dinner/family time.

miklb
what is multikind?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "multikind" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
GWG
multikind is allowing multiple post kinds on the same post.
#
GWG
So, liking and bookmarking
#
miklb
gotcha
#
GWG
I don't allow that in my implementation, but it is a feature request.
#
KartikPrabhu
are there any examples of multikind?
#
GWG
KartikPrabhu, acegiak was the requestor, not sure
#
GWG
I prefer to make each a separate post.
#
GWG
Which is more common, so I built it that way
#
KartikPrabhu
it is weird to start a page on the wiki for something that most likely does not exist

#
tantek
kevinmarks, it would strengthen your replies about POSSE were themselves clearly POSSEd

#
KevinMarks
What is a sidefile?
#
Loqi
The sidefile-antipattern is a violation of the DRY principle by the use of secondary files (typically in some one-off XML format) to provide information that is a duplicate of information available in primary files on a website (in HTML), and is an antipattern due to typical DRY violation problems such as out-of-date, missing, corrupted, or outright false data https://indieweb.org/sidefile
#
tantek
however, searching for sidefile (singular) brings up the third result https://indieweb.org/sidefile-antipattern
#
@artlung
@kevinmarks Indeed. The decay of silos highlights the raison d'être of #indieweb; silos are poor purveyors of publishing openness.

KevinMarks
Is schemas json ld an inline sidefile?

that sounds like an oxymoron
#
tantek
no such thing as "inline side-*"
#
KevinMarks
sidefile << webfinger
#
Loqi
ok, I added "webfinger" to the "See Also" section of /sidefile
#
tantek
schema's JSONLD is an in-document DRY violation
#
tantek
sidefiles is just one form of DRY violation
#
KevinMarks
Oops, missed the /
#
tantek
wouldn't have helped, the See Also shortcut doesn't parse wiki-relative refs like that

you have to use [[webfinger]]

davidmead, in https://indieweb.org/2017-01-01-commitments#David_Mead you mention plugins, which is a great self-reliance / invisible reliability/longevity goal. However, consider making an /ownyourdata goal for yourself too, since you're *so close* to doing it.

#
tantek
davidmead, excellent thinking and general area of challenge. there has been some previous thinking / experimenting on this.

aaronpk
my previous posting interface would trim my tweet text to fit the hashtags at the end. trying to find a screenshot

tantek
as you imply, specifically in how it impacts truncation of posts for POSSEing

ownyourgram + silo.pub?

Why does it seem like nearly every post I have to figure out some new(ish) indieweb(like) problem first before I post

I don't really think I'm overthinking things but maybe I am?
#
tantek
(notwithstanding asking that question itself)
#
tantek
also I'm figuring ownyourgram+silopub is better than IFTTT
#
tantek
but maybe I'll try both and find out?
#
tantek
I'm now treating creating new twitter accounts as cheap name registration, like DNS but on a silo, just to be able to @-name reference something instead of eating 23 chars with a domain name
#
davidmead
I create an twitter photo entry using IFTTT everytime I post on Instagram tantek. Downside is I have to add the syndicate link for it back on my blog manually
#
tantek
davidmead interesting!
#
tantek
did you IFTTT need access to your instagram? or was it able to just do it automatically from your public posts?

#
davidmead
you use your instagram account
#
tantek
so you still have to auth-in with your IG account?
#
tantek
seems like that would/should be unnecessary if it's a public IG
#
tantek
though perhaps that's deliberate design to avoid content "re-appropriation" ?
#
tantek
or perhaps by authing in you can do it more real-time like? or the API requires it?
#
davidmead
possibly
#
davidmead
it’s almost instantaneous
#
davidmead
in fact, sometimes, that works and ownyourgram doesn't
#

oh davidmead did you see i added an interface in ownyourgram to post individual photos if it misses one for some rason?

literally just walked away to take care of something in the other room for a minute, came back, and the "Your account has been locked." screen was showing
#
davidmead
question ben_thatmustbeme - if i were to use inkstone to post to my blog, how do i syndicate it to the silos (twitter, et al)? does the blog have to do that?
#
aaronpk
i'd be curious to see if they do that to a new account from a brand new un-cookied browser. i wonder if they recognize that browser was previously used on other twitter accounts
#
tantek
"Your account appears to have exhibited automated behavior..." uh, no, there was literally no "behavior" other than the manual step of signing-up, searching for and following *one* account as part of the sign-up flow, and then confirming the account via the email they sent.
#
tantek
then all I had to do was wait a few minutes and it reloaded into the locked screen
#
tantek
aaronpk, good q, I could try that from a private browsing session too to see what happens
#
tantek
if they're doing that, they're likely checking from-IP also
#
tantek
I didn't even post a single tweet
#
tantek
or follow anyone else
#
aaronpk
i'm sure this is just part of their attempt to stop one-off troll accounts
#
tantek
guilty until proven innocent? sounds like a silo tactic, similar to how they rel-nofollow all links from content
#

davidmead: yes, thats all on the blog's end, basically the micropub endpoint just gives a list of syndicate-to options, those are presented in inkstone's UI and then whichever options selected are sent with the post request

davidmead: what are you using for your site right now?

I have a plan for adding support for that

gah I don't have time to deal with Twitter being dumb at the moment, going to have to post about this later

KevinMarks: did you ever get @svgshare unlocked?
#
tantek
also - did you ever post about svgshare getting locked as I suggested earlier?
#
tantek
we should document all these errant instances of Twitter over-aggressively locking accounts
#
GWG
davidmead, the Bridgy Publish plugin should in future register itself as a target

I posted on twitter, and yes it is now unlocked
#
KevinMarks
Do they now lock by default if you don't give them a phone number?
#
tantek
permalink to your post? and time between post and unlocking?
#
tantek
it appears that not giving them a phone number may lock an account
#
KevinMarks
I also sent a support ticket and replied to that email, and tweeted that

Hello everyone. I wanted to introduce myself again. I'm developing my (static) website using indieweb principles and using the experience to learn html, css, js, etc. It's plain html right now but will slowly be improved from there.
#
tantek
mindB - awesome! and welcome, again! :)

!tell petermolnar your feed 404s .. I had been using https://petermolnar.net/category/article/feed/
#
Loqi
Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next
#
petermolnar
missing rewrite rule, probably
#
petermolnar
works without ending /
#
petermolnar
I swapped the wp install with the static one
#
petermolnar
still hunting bugs
#
cweiske
for now I removed the trailing / in my tt-rss subscription
#
tantek
sidefiles gonna fragile
#
petermolnar
true, though this is mostly my fault
#
petermolnar
trying to keep backwards-compatibility is tricky
#
tantek
feedfiles in general are a backcompat issue
#
petermolnar
I would have said parsing them is easier had I not read aaronpk's troubles a while ago when trying to make an rss/atom crossbreed
#
tantek
it's definitely one of the myths about them
#
tantek
the "parsing is easier" myth about feed files, XML, RDF, insert-fancy-new-format-here-that-rots-when-adopted-with-growth
#
petermolnar
...json...
#
petermolnar
I had more trouble with json parsers than with plain text with linebreak protocols
#
tantek
now that's pretty hilarious
#
petermolnar
cweiske it should be fixed
#
tantek
aaronpk, I am seeing Twitter indicate "8" replies to your tweet https://twitter.com/aaronpk/status/810170583291809792 but only one shows up at that link - are there more private replies there? or does that 8 included quoted tweet "replies" ?
#
@aaronpk
Oh Google. Remind me why I should trust the longevity of any of your invented formats/vocabularies? Schema FAQ 2014… https://twitter.com/i/web/status/810170583291809792

petermolnar
^^^ that article is a prime example why json is problematic, and when you try to use python json to send to perl json, it sometimes gets really messy
#
petermolnar
for example
#
aaronpk
tantek: apparently I was using that as a test post and my private account replied to it a bunch

hah ok

thanks Loqi
#
Loqi
you're welcome
#
mindB
Wait. If json is frowned upon as well as xml, what's the recommended format for data transfer? csv?
#
mindB
I tend to think json is superior to most other options.
#
tantek
mindB, depends on the context
#
tantek
the problem is without context, JSON seems like a fine data transfer format, as does XML etc.
#
tantek
in practice, if your "data transfer" use-case is "how do I server information from my webserver to someone who wants to view it", then HTML+microformats is the recommended "format"
#
tantek
and superior to XML, JSON, etc.
#
tantek
*serve information
#
mindB
Ah. Gotcha. Most of my coding has happened in a data analysis context before so that tends to color my perception. Web presents different issues.
#
tantek
yes, the contextual difference in those use-cases is quite significant!
#
KevinMarks
Csv is far worse than json
#
KevinMarks
Tsv is better than csv
