Was hoping omnibear had a link reply field. For second I thought I could keep Tweetdeck open and be able to reply to individual tweets and watch to keep threads correct. Played with monibear a lot today. I like it
#
[jgmac1106]
Had to install it on Chrome as well as Tweetdeck still too heavy for Firefox

[jgmac1106]
Nope just being able to handle my Monday Twitter chat schedule is the ultimate #indieweb stress test for me
#
[jgmac1106]
Currently I just double tab and keep Known open but I am almost there doing it in the same window. Need to be able to reply to links.

I am still running the 9.9 build. I need to update. It is pretty easy once you get it going

[jgmac1106]
[unoabraham] it generally works well. I have to break threads to embed a tweet or add an image. Not too bad but some chats are basic gif battles

gif battles SMH
#
[jgmac1106]
why the layers of meaning that can be contained and the props thrown for a perfect metaphor using something not over played. The levels of narratology built if folks can keep something visually threaded together. I love it.

[jgmac1106]
Play with your smiley faces and poop, I'll stick with gifs
snarfed joined the channel

but in terms of being able to keep up with fast pace chats using my current indieweb chats I can do alright. Was kind of today's experiment

Few years back I naively thought If I could figure out responsive layout I could make a set of css classes for different "quadrants" and kind of recreate what we did in Mozilla Popcorn that would allow people to remix html5 video, text, gifs, music, images etc. Spent forever trying to learn how text and image overlays worK making stuff like: https://thimbleprojects.org/jgmac1106/112688/ I think if I did use flexbox and had some div styled for di
#
[jgmac1106]
folks could remix a bunch of media.
#
[jgmac1106]
Kind of gave up on CSS animation for now. I love it as art but the amount of study it would take for something that doesn't have much professional value isn't something I can invest in currently

with some url hacking or a bookmarklet you can add an in-reply-to to make it a proper response

#
[chrisaldrich]
[jgmac1106] I saw a note in one of the channels earlier about quick posting for Twitter conversations. Are you aware of/using the Known browser bookmarklet for replies? It's hiding on your site at http://quickthoughts.jgregorymcverry.com/account/settings/tools/
#
[chrisaldrich]
[John] Do you have your own website?
#
[John]
I have a rather ugly site at evdemon.org. it's based on Known and is really an excuse for me to get more familiar with indieweb standards.
[jgmac1106] joined the channel
#
[jgmac1106]
[chrisaldrich] yeah had it in Firefox was was just giving OmniBear a try. It's a nice interface
#
[chrisaldrich]
I keep meaning to circle back to OmniBear... it is a solid idea to do that from the browser and I'm a browser bookmarklet junkie.
#
[jgmac1106]
[schmarty] and on Glitch so we can all poke around and see how it works. You have just made my day
#
[chrisaldrich]
[John] It's a hidden resource, but you can go back to one or more of the recent IndieWebCamps that were well video-taped and come up to speed really quickly if you need to. Known is a great place to start.

What is pronunciation?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "pronunciation" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "pronunciation is ____", a sentence describing the term)
#
[chrisaldrich]
pronunciation is an online means using text or audio to indicate how to say a person's name.
#
[jgmac1106]
[John] like the title a play on John Udell?
tomasparks joined the channel
#
[chrisaldrich]
I saw the title and went to this: http://www.smallpieces.com/
#
[John]
Ah. I had a blog with this name many years ago when I was a "SOA evangelist" (ugh).
#
[jgmac1106]
Was just showing my students the Creative Commons search page. Saw they now include attribution. Looks like it's just displaying but still neat
#
[jgmac1106]
Did I misquote someone and mix up the Terminator timeline in same night?
#
[jgmac1106]
Yes, yes I did. Time for bed. Hate finals week so I much grading
#
[jgmac1106]
[chrisaldrich] searched my blogs. I came across the book when Udell mentioned the quote in #connectedcourses a pop up learning community. Explains the error. Terminator unexcusable
#
[jgmac1106]
Though it is a vote for one canonical site. I usually spin up a blog and let it sit for our MOOCish gatherings was PITA to find correct one
#
[chrisaldrich]
Finals week excuses almost everything, including Terminator references.
#
[chrisaldrich]
I suspect that Weinberger could do worse than be confused for Udell. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Evening [unoabraham].
[unoabraham] joined the channel
#
[unoabraham]
Welcome [John].
#
[unoabraham]
Hey Chris.
#
[jgmac1106]
Hey [unoabraham] replied to one of your posts from my site but then realized it was your Tumblr page and not your micro.blog
#
[unoabraham]
[John] Chris has an excellent 2 hour video that will get you started on the IndieWeb. Highly recommended.
#
[unoabraham]
All good. Let me check on Tumblr.
#
[unoabraham]
I for one have not been able to get all of Webmentions working with WP.
#
[chrisaldrich]
Ah, the problem with having too many syndication targets... particularly ones which don't backfeed...
#
[chrisaldrich]
[unoabraham] still having microformats problems with your theme?
#
[unoabraham]
Ha ha... don't have Microformats. Plugin breaks permalinks and theme has no inbuilt support.
#
[chrisaldrich]
[unoabraham] I noticed you'd mentioned me a couple times the other day, but I hadn't gotten webmentions from them. I'm not sure if it was that you hadn't sent them or if something is wrong for me on the receiving end.
#
[unoabraham]
That was me, but Webmentions is broken on your site and also David's. I listen to your podcast.
#
[unoabraham]
Unless I'm doing webmentions wrong.
#
[chrisaldrich]
I see a few in your page, but it looks like it's even missing the ones that WP core usually throws in by default. How did you manage that?
#
[John]
I have a personal goal to write more instead of just sharing posts. Time continues to be a challenge.
#
[John]
Aaron Parecki's recent post about Indie readers made me want to hack an existing reader to add indieweb support. The Freedom Controller project looks interesting.
#
[chrisaldrich]
[unoabraham] I'd guess that the webmention problem may be microformats related, but it's a bit out of my depth to easily troubleshoot.
#
[unoabraham]
[chrisaldrich] Micro.Blog works and also Facebook Likes and comments. Twitter doesn't work though.
#
[chrisaldrich]
[John] time to write is certainly an issue... I always wish I had more.
#
[chrisaldrich]
[unoabraham] Odd that you'd get webmentions from FB and m.b but not Twitter.
#
[unoabraham]
Yeah. Going to troubleshoot that this week.
#
[unoabraham]
And I also get Webmentions from Mastodon.
#
[unoabraham]
No idea how that works.
#
[unoabraham]
I mean my account is not even linked on Bridgy or anywhere else.
#
[chrisaldrich]
Do you have an example of a Webmention from Mastodon? I'd love to see it.
#
[chrisaldrich]
It looks like your Brid.gy account for Twitter has been paused and it isn't polling or set up for publishing: https://brid.gy/twitter/unoabraham
#
[unoabraham]
Ok. Enabled them. Thanks for the heads up.
snarfed joined the channel
#
[chrisaldrich]
For pieces that are set up properly, you can nudge Brid.gy to reprocess particular posts for webmentions.
#
[unoabraham]
[chrisaldrich] My site has all the Mastodon syndication links https://abraham.uno/. Let me search for the Webmention.

"time to write" is not necessarily an indieweb problem. Anything you can write on silos should be writeable on your won site
#
KartikPrabhu
thinking that blogs/websites are only for long form writing is a problem
#
[chrisaldrich]
Starting with short form content is certainly a gateway drug for moving toward longer form content.
#
[chrisaldrich]
Many has been the time I started writing just a short /note and ended up changing it later to be an /article.
#
KartikPrabhu
which is good since "notes" are the easiest to have on your own site
#
KartikPrabhu
[chrisaldrich]: yes that is more of a "process" problem than indieweb
#
[chrisaldrich]
Of course when you're busy scratching itches to make things work properly, you have less time for other writing. But look on the bright side: writing code *IS* writing.
#
[unoabraham]
@Kartik - That is a big problem for most folks, we're conditioned to think that blogs mean content that is an actual post, and not a status update. It took me a long time to actually post status updates on my own website without a title. But now I do that more than actual blogging.
#
KartikPrabhu
people don't think of tweets as a status update
#
KartikPrabhu
for me, having my own website is more of a deterrent against quick reaction posts
todrobbins joined the channel
#
[unoabraham]
Most folks (like me) cannot think of a topic/content to tweet about, so Twitter is full of retweets and links to other websites and shared content.
#
[unoabraham]
Personally the one way I can post short form content is by posting what I'm doing a.k.a. status updates. Like my today's micro-post was about listening to a podcast by Chris and David. The secret is out now.
#
[unoabraham]
Coming to the 2nd part, yes I agree especially seeing how Twitter and the Twitterati have mastered outrage.
#
[unoabraham]
@Kartik URL to your website please.

#
[unoabraham]
Thanks.
#
[unoabraham]
Still trying to wrap my head around the CMS.
#
KartikPrabhu
[unoabraham]: it is not a "CMS". It is mostly custom-built around Django using Python
#
[unoabraham]
Ha ha, CMS is for my understanding and classification, the rest of the terms and technical jargon goes way over my head.
#
KartikPrabhu
then it is a custom "CMS"
#
[unoabraham]
Done.
#
KartikPrabhu
to be fair, the UX of my system is nowhere close to being an actual "CMS"-like UX which is why I avoid the word
#
[unoabraham]
Personally I'm limited to WordPress, and learning a little bit of Hugo. With the IndieWeb I'm trying to learn all the content management systems, but nothing comes close to WordPress for non-coders like me.
#
tomasparks
I agree wordpress being an easy to use CMS
#
KartikPrabhu
yes. wordpress is easy, but also less flexible
#
KartikPrabhu
but use what works for you
#
tomasparks
with the right plugin you can shoot your foot :)
#
KartikPrabhu
also "trying to learn all the CMSs" is not the right approach
#
KartikPrabhu
tomasparks: yes, I really like my foot though; both of them ;)
#
tomasparks
i've gone old-school with jekyll:)
#
KartikPrabhu
to be fair, wordpress is a good starting point since it is more "out-of-the-box"
tantek joined the channel
#
[unoabraham]
If it wasn't for the IndieWeb I wouldn't be trying to learn anything. Perfectly happy with WordPress.
#
[unoabraham]
However, getting to know the IndieWeb has opened the doors to so many possibilities. The web can be so much more interactive than just comments and comment spam.
#
KartikPrabhu
[unoabraham]: yes! that definitely is the right pov

hey @swentel I love all the native post options you added to Indigenous. Awesome. Though I did notice if I select a post-kind then hit back button to switch the post gets published. Will see if I can reproduce problem before filing issue (if it hasn't been already)
#
swentel
interesting
#
swentel
[jgmac1106], the back button on your device, or in the top bar ?
#
[jgmac1106]
The top bar in Android (at bottom of Pixel 2)
#
[jgmac1106]
Let me do it again and see if it happenz
#
[jgmac1106]
Nevermind it's just the repost which is instant. Every other option allowed navigation back before posting. That makes sense
#
[jgmac1106]
Also I know it's still Alpha but you need to let us buy the app or at least kick into a Patreon or GoFundme for the project
#
swentel
yeah, I'm looking into that as we speak :)

Yes, and has a one time donation! The culling of subscription services critical in my life. Used to complain about expensive software. Now I miss those days
#
Loqi
misses those days too
#
snarfed
better to unify all the admin around indieweb donations and funding instead of each person/project spending time and effort on it out themselves
#
snarfed
(and each donor tracking n donations)
#
swentel
hmm, that's a good point
KartikPrabhu and eli joined the channel

what are the donations used for right now, it isn't really clear from that page - unless I'm overseeing things

(although that's not explaining everything)
eli_oat joined the channel

and can donators choose to what their money goes ? if that would work, that would /probably/ make it easier to get people in from the drupal side of things

should probably go and read about opencollective first

grrrr.... omnibear is not authenticating again. "Error fetching token". I just cleared all my cached content, too.
#
Zegnat
That expenses page is good. Should probably put that on the /Leaders page with the question about what centralised services IndieWeb depends upon
jgmac1106_ and KartikPrabhu joined the channel
#
snarfed
donors choosing where their money goes (aka ballot box democracy) seems like a good idea but is actually often a bad idea. things that are invisible/unsexy but necessary often don't get enough funding.
#
snarfed
(...but that verges toward politics/#-chat territory :P)
#
Zegnat
Propose it as a leaders summit topic?
#
skippy
is omnibear working for anyone else? My auth succeeds, but then it stalls at "Retrieving access token..."
#
Zegnat
It could be it just doesn't close the page. Check if it really doesn't work.
#
skippy
it really doesnt work. the omnibear icon presents me the login dialog still.
#
skippy
closing browser, trying again.
#
swentel
ironically, I don't really need the money, it would just help of course speeing up the drupal plugin and the android client, but slow development is fine too :)

You can try https://gimme-a-token.5eb.nl/ and see if you can manually get the token?

@swentel I do need to figure out how to POSSE to twitter using Known through OmniBear or Indigenous or choose a new platform for my microblogging. I was only half kidding when I hoped switching a validation from "false" to "true" so sending Twitter is always default worked. I have learned a lot, and broken much more playing with true and false
#
swentel
hmm not sure what you mean
#
swentel
indigenous has a syndication list where you can toggle
#
Zegnat
skippy that suggests a miscommunication between omnibear and indietoken to me. Remind me later if it is still a problem and I am happy to debug once I'm home.
#
skippy
thanks Zegnat. weird.
#
swentel
(there's a bug still with some endpoints though, and q=config is not supported yet too, but that's coming in the next release hopefully next weekend)
#
[jgmac1106]
@swentel In Known I have to hit a button to send to Twitter. I have two, not sure why. I think thats because I used to pay and then when Bridgy and other idno plugins were free I got both.
#
Zegnat
Theoretically a Micropub client will let you select Twitter as a syndication target, send that along to the endpoint, and Known will know that it should handle it as if that button was flipped.
#
Zegnat
But this feels -dev like, or even better suited to the known chat if the endpoint is problematic
#
jgmac1106_
yep will move the channel. I like the soft push to channels but sometimes conversations going to flow and its hard to predict where they end up. Then sometimes you end up with the same thread across two channels
#
jgmac1106_
@zegnat you are right I had to hit refresh syndications and My Twitter button came back in Indigenous. Thought I lost it in an update
#
[jgmac1106]
and I discover the endpoint features in OmniBear. Thx for help @zegnat

Slack users all have their nicks in square brackets here. If you want to tabcomplete.
#
jgmac1106_
everyone using !tell is probably more IRC
#
Zegnat
But not all slack users show up on IRC, an IRC not only turns up when they write, and will time out over time
#
Jeena
ah, interesting, so when I do [jgmac1106] it will highlight in slack?

I think !tell's carry over no problem. And may even do some deduping. But ask aaronpk in -meta? ;-)

ok, cool, thangs, good to know

!tell [Jeena] we can move to meta if he wants

I think I found some answers to questions which confused me for so long about Micro.blog http://help.micro.blog/2018/replies-and-mentions/ it seems to be a weird mix of indieweb and homegrown parts when it comes to replies
Rev_Illo, catsup and snarfed joined the channel
#
tantek
interesting. are you thinking of registering any?
#
tantek
what is .app
#
Loqi
Apps are less functional versions of web sites that are usually restricted to one or more proprietary platforms https://indieweb.org/app
#
tantek
snarfed vanity maybe depending
#
tantek
don't really plan on ever making a "native" app that could instead be done as a web app so I'm not sure?
#
tantek
and now I'm wondering who (maybe Google themselves) parked web(.)app :P
#
snarfed
not limited to native apps, you could serve a webapp (or normal site) on a .app domain afaict :P
#
tantek
snarfed sure which is why I checked for web. for subdomain usage :P
#
tantek
also I don't trust Google (yet) to not "special case" .app domains e.g. for installs etc., after all the special-casing that AMP got
#
snarfed
blog.app is available. tantek.app too
#
snarfed
wow lots of single letter domains too. x.app, z.app
#
tantek
snarfed, did you see if they offer any special treatment of domain expiration?
#
snarfed
haven't looked
#
snarfed
they require https though
#
tantek
e.g. this claim "helping protect against ad malware" fails once a .app domain expires and a malware distributer buys it
[Thom_M] joined the channel
#
[Thom_M]
From what I could tell, you can't register any of them yet. I tried google domains and namecheap and neither would actually let your register anything, they just told you whether they were available or not.
#
tantek
great, get your secure malware :P
#
tantek
domain expiration is a bigger longterm malware threat than http :P
#
tantek
as we are seeing zombie spam sites already
#
tantek
zombie malware is not far behind
#
tantek
snarfed, e.g. woodwind was always https but you've seen what happened to that domain right?
#
snarfed
refrains from having this same debate yet again :P
#
tantek
wait really? did we document the perspectives?

tantek
I didn't think this was a "same debate"

#
snarfed
tantek: back here. i was referring to "woodwind was always https..."

nm, i see what you mean re malware

right, the cert expiration on woodwind was a separate problem and I too do not want to debate that again
#
tantek
or rather I don't have anything new to add beyond what we've already documented
#
[jgmac1106]
another issue I have is discounting of domains and then huge price spikes. I had femhack.tech for our feminist pedagogy hackathon series. Got it for nothing from Hover the first year and then it spiked to $75

I personally supported the project and just had to let the domain go

yeah, one of the many reasons I'm wary about the new gTLD, there's been a few with multiplying prices. Although I'd assume those owned by Google or other established players are safer in that regard as well
#
aaronpk
the "first-year discounts" should never be expected to be the renewal price. most of the time that's pretty obvious
#
aaronpk
it's not nice when they just jack up the renewal prices arbitrarily tho
#
[jgmac1106]
Hover could be more transparent. They don't say its a one year discount: https://www.hover.com/tld/buy-club-domain
#
[jgmac1106]
you have to know renewals mean next year, not sure everyone does, but if you are buying a specialised TLD you should

Well, Facebook already knows everything about me, so they might as well try to couple me to someone.

I do think we have an opportunity to document ways to mitigate dependence on FB (and other silos) from purely a user (not technological) view
#
tantek
document *more* ways

I deleted all of my social media yesterday. I guess I'll find out whether it's social suicide or not.

[tantek] Yep. All of it. Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit, Facebook, Instagram. Nuked it all from orbit. It was exhilarating.
#
tantek
amazing
#

first document your success on /silo-quits, then if you have time it would be great to add specifics to /Twitter /LinkedIn /Reddit /Facebook /Instagram summarizing your experience with each ("How to delete") maybe
#
tantek
the more positive examples we can document of people doing this, and how they did this, the more people are enabled / emboldened to also do so
#

i thought for sure I had a post about my abandonment of FB many years ago, but searching my content suggests that I never did write such a thing. weird.
#
tantek
skippy, still likely useful (even more timely now) for you post about, even a brief summary
#
skippy
aye. i should.

interesting patterns in hosting costs for bridgy, granary, indie map, etc over time: https://snarfed.org/costs.png
#

notably, i managed to cut bridgy's costs in half last month, but the other projects have spiked over the last year from zero to somewhat noticeable.
