https://usesthis.com/ is a cool site with interviews of people and the stuff they use to get things done. I wonder what the indieweb equivalent would be called
#
aaronpk
I have a page like that which I keep up to date, rather than being a snapshot in time like those posts
#
tantek__
I wonder if there is value in both
#
aaronpk
I linked to a few other similar pages from various people, trying to find any similarities in naming
#
aaronpk
"tools" seems to be the common thread
#
tantek__
I see Eddie calls it "using"
#
aaronpk
e.g. "tools I use"
#
aaronpk
the description on mine even includes "tools"
#
tantek__
as does Matt Gemmell
#
tantek__
I'm looking at the slug first
#
tantek__
as does Jason Rodriguez - but 404
#
tantek__
"The Cramped" calls it "What We Use"
#
tantek__
at slug what-we-use
#
tantek__
tools is incomplete as people mention services as well, whereas "tools" often implies physical
#
tantek__
(though obv in context things like "dev tools" are software)

using is close enough
#
tantek__
what is using?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "using" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "using is ____", a sentence describing the term)
#
tantek__
using is the name of an authoring and/or publishing application, or can also be a page of tools and services that someone uses or likes to use. IndieWeb Example: https://aaronparecki.com/life-stack/ (see inside for links to more examples near the bottom), site dedicated to interviews of individuals and what they are using: https://usesthis.com/

aaronpk, I appreciate both the "most of up to date" version and also the interviews snapshots in time
#
tantek__
if it were a kind of post then # using could be hashtag for them all
#
tantek__
I suppose the posts would/could be when you put something into use, and when you abandoned it (what you call "Graveyard")
#
tantek__
then your life-stack page could be automatically generated from those posts

using << Brainstorming: If you posted about when you started using something (put it into regular use), and also when you stopped using something (perhaps related, was replaced by something you started using?) then you could automate building a "currently using" page like aaronpk's https://aaronparecki.com/life-stack/.

ok, I added "Brainstorming: If you posted about when you started using something (put it into regular use), and also when you stopped using something (perhaps related, was replaced by something you started using?) then you could automate building a "currently using" page like aaronpk's https://aaronparecki.com/life-stack/. Such "started using" posts are essentially a form of strongly positive [[review]]. Perhaps a review with hashtag "u" to a brand new "See Also" section of /using https://indieweb.org/wiki/index.php?diff=52637&oldid=52635

aaronpk
hm, I actually do put little notes with dates on things that go into my "graveyard" section
[eddie] joined the channel
#
tantek__
so you sorta have stuff/service retirement posts
#
tantek__
they're just in a list in the graveyard section
#
aaronpk
oh and I did do a post in january with the things I added then
#
aaronpk
like a separate blog post even
#
tantek__
I wonder how much I could reconstruct retroactively

I've definitely gone through some interesting things (Ricochet modems)

#
[eddie]
swentel, I’d be interested in any info you have on your Drupal talk coming up. I’m going to submit an IndieWeb talk proposal to DrupalCamp NJ for this winter
#
[eddie]
Speaking of, when is your DrupalCamp happening?
#
swentel
[eddie], the slides will be available online
#

november 23
#
swentel
I'm going to share them here before, for some review
#
[eddie]
Sweet! 👍 perfect
#
swentel
so that I don't mention any stupid things about indieweb :)
#
[eddie]
lol I’m sure you won’t 🙂 but it is great to be able to get feedback from everyone around here. Great ideas abound in these chat rooms
#
swentel
well, it might be subtle details, I'm only here for about 5 months now, although I /think/ I understand most concepts by now
#
swentel
implementing specs always helps of course
#
[eddie]
Yeah, you’ve jumped in quickly 🙂 definitely feels like you’ve been here longer than 5 months!
#
swentel
yeah, I looked at the preview video of indigenous from 4 months ago

yeah, the really major thing I want to tackle is still the html parsing

and then caching, but not sure yet how to handle

swentel
thinking about using a local db

swentel
since I use one now for the drafts

[eddie]
swentel: seems like we’re headed into #indieweb-dev territory now 👍 so I’m writing a response over there

The time has come to add google+ to https://indieweb.org/site-deaths – R.I.P. - really had great experiences and engagements with some of my 1600 followers. Will miss it. https://9to5google.com/2018/10/08/google-plus-shutting-down/ and off course they call it a feature https://www.blog.google/technology/safety-security/project-strobe/

checks the date

[jgmac1106]
though only consumer facing...the keeping it for enterprise is interesting play, hoping somebody writes a business book about the Google+ expperiment, rise of local search, realizing we don't need a social netowrk for local search with everyone having a tracker in their pocket

[jgmac1106]
..,,and I swear the number of years old webmentions I am getting coming in from Google+ has to be a part of this....many are folks on institutional instances

The google+ data breach affected 500.000 users. None of us was informed by google : officially evil.
#
[jgmac1106]
yes, there I agree
#
aaronpk
they do say the bug was never taken advantage of
#
aaronpk
and by “shutting down” they mean slowly turning off over the next 10 months
eli_oat joined the channel
#
aaronpk
so this really reads more like they found a bad bug and aren’t willing to invest the resources to fix it so they are shutting it down rather than continuing to maintain the software
#
sl007
With the new EU laws in affect I will go to the local police tomorrow to report a crime regarding google. That will be fun.

Anyone know of a CSS venting channel? (rhetorical question) I want to vent about bad media queries on multiple stylesheets pointing to the same element. !@#$%&*

how could haveibeenpwned.com have info on the breach if even google is unable to identify affected users ?

[kiai]
haveibeenpwned will let you know if your data has been made public.
#
[jgmac1106]
[kiai] keep building up the media queries skills on WP, wonder if you can help @gwg who has been working on media endpoints in micropub... head to /wordpress to learn more
#
GWG
Media Endpoint and Media Queries are different
#
[jgmac1106]
that's why [kiai] should help you and not me...I figure the query asks the db for stuff and then displays it...the endpoint gets the media in the db
#
KartikPrabhu
[jgmac1106]: media queries are a CSS feature and have nothing to do with the backend
#
[kiai]
no database connection with queries
#
[kiai]
just browser stuff
#
[jgmac1106]
...ooooh those media queries
#
[jgmac1106]
with WordPress...yeah good luck with that with every plugin styling and injecting classes at will
#
[kiai]
I don't use plugins for that. I make children and rip the CSS apart
#
GWG
Exactly. Media Queries are a css thing
#
[kiai]
Sometimes plugins can't fix CSS if the CSS is all over the place. The theme I'm working on has half a dozen stylesheets. Fortunately, I only need 2 of them.

without getting to devy I am working on them actually right now for my homepage...trying to get my nav menu way I like
#
[kiai]
DevTools are your friend... ironically a Google product
#
[jgmac1106]
nahhh...css Grid in Firefox dev edition better
#
[jgmac1106]
Grid inspector between the two very similar but I find the UI easier in FF dev versus devtools
#
[jgmac1106]
personal opinion

KartikPrabhu
now this is getting "devy"

Not on a "using" page like others have, but I've considered it

I realize that despite not having a "using" page myself either, I have posted "what I packed" photos with everything laid out, which is another sort of "using" (while traveling)

also made me think about rhiaro's acquisition posts, as they may help track approximately when you started using something
#
snarfed
hey [jgmac1106], re the bridgy G+ webmentions you've received recently from people on enterprise (g suite) accounts, mind adding an example or two to https://github.com/snarfed/bridgy/issues/846 ?
#
Loqi
[snarfed] #846 August 2019: turn off Google+?
#
snarfed
(also just fyi, no, the new G+ comments etc that bridgy has recently found are unrelated to the G+ bug they announced today)
#
tantek__
Hey snarfed! Yes the bug they announce made me think of you and our discussions about bigcos and privacy & security
#
snarfed
oh boy
#
snarfed
yeah lots of this is definitely disappointing!
#
snarfed
lack of disclosure, poor security eng practices and review around ACLs, etc
#
tantek
yeahhhh
#
snarfed
also worth remembering that "how secure" is shades of gray with a huge spectrum, not black and white, and nothing is 100% secure. in general google's security (or FB, Amazon, etc) will still be worlds better than the average indieweb person singlehandedly administering their own VM
#
tantek
it's more the privacy failure due to bad API design etc.
#
tantek
I have no doubt the actual security of those APIs is fine :)
#
snarfed
also worth distinguishing security (ie unintentional bugs and breaches) from business practices (ie intentional abuses, product policies, etc)
#
snarfed
huh my interpretation was that this was a bug, not bad design
#
snarfed
but semantics to some degree at least
#
tantek
I'm assuming any public announcements about this kind of thing are filtered by GDPR-aware laywers at this point
#
tantek
It smells like bad design

Just learned that Cloudflare is launching the world's first no-markup domain registrar. https://dash.cloudflare.com/domains

[snarfed] one could hope Rachel from the data liberation front was amazed when I showed her all the teacher spaces and described how folks retreated to G+ because noone was there and the granular control
