tantek
is there any reason to use a highly overloaded hashtag like #open?
#
tantek
or should I try to take back a more specific (but no one else is using like me) hashtag like #openab?
#
KartikPrabhu
if you want to reach a wide (possibly unwitting) audience then sure
#
KartikPrabhu
I have seen people use such broad hashtags, but I find them annoying
#
aaronpk
my rule for hashtags is basically "would i search for this post on my own site to find it later based on this hashtag"
#
KartikPrabhu
good point
#
tantek
aaronpk, really good point
#
aaronpk
#selfdogfood
#
aaronpk
you'd be surprised how often i refer to my own tag pages
#
tantek
I would not, I know how often I want to refer to mine and mine don't exist ;(
#
tantek
that means if it's a useless hashtag on a POSSE destination like Twitter, then no reason to include it in the POSSE tweet! (leave it at the end of the original post, and include more content in the POSSE tweet instead)

what's the best way to archive photos out of Filckr?
#
aaronpk
I WAS THINKING THE SAME THING
#
DanC
Norm Walsh wrote a flickr backup thing years ago... I wonder if it still works
#
aaronpk
this is the best way once i double check it works https://github.com/aaronpk/Flickr-Archiver
#
aaronpk
i made sure that it archived albums, tags, comments, and everything
#
bear
cool - then I will wait for your updates
#
aaronpk
yeah a fire just got lit under my butt
#
bear
same - the yahoo news
#
aaronpk
ever since my raid drive double-killed itself i haven't restored that project, but now its time
#
DanC
all the APIs I used to know how to use flipped to newer OAuth protocols in recent years.
#
bear
for me it's only 211 photos, but still - a few of them that is the only copy
#
aaronpk
don't worry. flickr hasn't changed at all
#
DanC
no? I'm almost sure it has
#
aaronpk
actually that's not entirely true, the did finally start to support oauth 1 instead of their proprieary thing that flickr invented that was part of the development of oauth 1
#
DanC
funny: I actually use flickr as an offsite backup
#
aaronpk
but theyr'e still oauth 1, even though oauth 2 had pretty much taken over at the point they launched oauth 1
#
DanC
it's the one photo site that lets me (a) put the same photo in multiple albums (b) curate photos without sending notices hither and yon
#
aaronpk
yeah i have yet to see a site as good as yahoo
#
aaronpk
er flickr
#
aaronpk
that was awkward
#
DanC
flickr killed basic archive navigation. "my photos taken in May 2014" is gone. I think they still service the URLs, but there's no way to navigate to them. sigh.
#
aaronpk
it's still there, it's just hard to navigate to
#
aaronpk
"more -> archives"
#
DanC
no, that goes the the flargin camera roll thingy
#
aaronpk
I thought the camera roll was just a different view of all your photos
#
DanC
yes, but there used to be an archive page. no photos on it. Just years and months (and numbers of photos)
#
aaronpk
Oh I do remember that page
#
aaronpk
Yeah #ownyourdata
#
DanC
meanwhile, (a) flickr has built a better photo curating site than I have and (b) they make it not too painful to get my metadata back with an API.

huh, that's fairly dev-like isn't it

has anyone clicked on a facebook notification from bridgy recently?
#
aaronpk
i haven't seen one in a while
#
snarfed
they're broken right now, due to an FB config, so i'm not sure how long they've been broken. https://github.com/snarfed/bridgy/issues/716
#
snarfed
huh yeah i got a new token this morning and looked at it in https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/accesstoken/ , and it said "expiration: never," which seemed odd. maybe something changed...or maybe just because i'm an admin on the FB app
#
snarfed
oh wow it says that for your token too aaronpk. and that it was issued 2y ago (!)
#
snarfed
ah maybe this is for tokens that came from the 1.0 FB API
#
aaronpk
that's...odd
#
aaronpk
remember google buzz?
#
snarfed
i vaguely remember some of them were grandfathered into longer lifetimes somehow
#
aaronpk
apparently threads that i started and commented on are in my gmail account
#
snarfed
yeah that's it. people who first signed up for bridgy facebook after api 2.0 get the usual 2 month token expiration
#
tantek
what is google buzz?
#
Loqi
Google Buzz was a Google silo for posting small text updates ("buzz"), similar to Twitter, but without the 140 character limitation https://indieweb.org/Google_Buzz
#
KevinMarks
Buzz was integrated in gmail to read, do that makes some sense
snarfed joined the channel
#
tantek
KevinMarks: worse than that, Buzz auto-added all your frequent Gmail senders/receivers as Buzz friends, which resulted in a huge amounts of public awkwardness
#
tantek
so the "Buzz was integrated in gmail" was kind of a disaster overall
#
aaronpk
oh right lol
#
KevinMarks
Yes, that was a recurring disaster. There was a team in Israel that was crawling the gtalk/gmail graph and trying to do smart things with it, and in buzz it got unleashed.
#
KevinMarks
And got Google an FTC decree for privacy violation
#
KevinMarks
When I was on the Contacts team the "friends" api would return the user's contacts in descending order of interaction
#
KevinMarks
Which is kind of helpful if you are the user, and creepy as hell if you're anyone else
tantek joined the channel
#
KevinMarks
We built a test "friend of friend" explorer with it, realised how creepy it was and deleted the code. Clearly someone later did the same thing and thought it was a feature
