# 06:05 [tantek] you cannot connect Facebook with anything anymore, except maybe Instagram.
wolftune, KartikPrabhu and [dave] joined the channel
# 06:17 [dave] Instagram yes, but I'm not sure if it works via any sort of automation. Lately I've been using Instagram for posting photos so they go to Facebook for the stubborn friends that won't leave it, and use IFTTT to crosspost that to Twitter so it shows up as a native photo there, and then that uses the crossposter to shove a copy onto my Mastodon. It's messy but it works...

# 16:30 [tantek] Kevinmarks, that Wired article is a good example of what kind of blog posts to write at the time something happens so that they’re available for “the media” to cite

# 16:41 aaronpk It's pretty fun to see mainstream media coming back around to the idea of small internet and personal websites which we've been solidly working on for the last...9 years now

# 16:47 aaronpk Who's excited for IndieWebCamp Austin this weekend!
# 16:48 aaronpk I am leaving PDX today and will end up in Austin on Friday so I hope I remembered everything!
# 16:55 [tantek] Worth analyzing that article for why mainstream media is now coming back. Worth inviting the author to IndieWebCamp?

# 17:02 [Rose] I am excited, though I'm also excited to test how ergonomic my sofa setup is ;)

# 17:49 [davidmead] Is there anything stopping a photo, long-form post, or a check-in be a `u-in-reply-to` ?
# 17:51 jacky if anything, those sound like a photo, article or reply with location data
# 17:53 petermolnar are there any visual website builders out there which makes sane, html based websites these days? All the things I look at, apart from some page builders for WordPress, are devastatingly JS oriented.
# 17:53 jacky petermolnar: like native applications on one's desktop?

# 17:54 [tantek] davidmead, not just not stopping, some are actual use-cases already
# 17:54 [tantek] I've certainly posted an article reply before, though I'm not sure we've documented it as such
# 17:56 petermolnar jacky: there's an org website, currently on wix, which is terrible in every possible way - fullon js;dr, ridiculously slow, etc -, which I'd love to replace, but the primary owner is not too tech savvy, and I'm looking for presentable alternatives. Desktop or web, doesn't matter, but it needs to be simple, modern, with a sane, not js;dr output.
# 17:58 [tantek] and now I'm wanting an archive of my posts by "type", e.g. all my article posts
# 18:00 [tantek] technically all my /issue posts are /article posts in structure that are in-reply-to the respective GitHub repo or more correctly to that GitHub repo's issues page
# 18:00 [davidmead] tantek and you’re using ‘article’ as a long-form piece, not the HTML article tag, correct?
# 18:03 jacky petermolnar: hm. I've been leaning on Wordpress to handle CMS-y stuff for clients
# 18:03 jacky but nothing to the extent that Wix would provide

# 22:59 [tantek] what's the point of showing the url in the reply context?
# 23:00 aaronpk it's useful to me at least since it gives me more context at a glance of where the post came from, and therefore how much though I should give it
# 23:00 [tantek] since presumably it's already linked to from their name/image
# 23:00 KartikPrabhu aaronpk: If I didn't recognise your photo I would not know which of the posts is by the author of the site vs which one is external, unless I looked at the URL stuff closely
# 23:00 aaronpk that part isn't changing right now, i'm just adding my own author info into my posts
# 23:00 [tantek] oh interesting, you want to indicate some visual signifier as to what "network" it came from
# 23:00 aaronpk KartikPrabhu: does that problem also exist with the current display of my replies?
# 23:01 Loqi [Aaron Parecki] That's basically the idea with https://indieauth.net to let you bring you own identity and authentication mechanism when logging in to sites. There's a fair number of providers and support for it but nothing at the scale of Facebook yet.
# 23:01 [tantek] you could stamp their icon with the silo icon like you do in your facepiles
# 23:01 aaronpk ok, no change then, so I will solve that separately :)
# 23:02 [tantek] oh yeah much better when you icon is next to the part that you wrote
# 23:02 aaronpk cool. i'm looking for minimum viable improvements right now

# 23:03 [tantek] KartikPrabhu key to reply-contexts is keeping them simple. I think the challenge is when a reply-context is confused with the actual content of your post
# 23:04 [tantek] happens less so. I still put my icon on my replies so you can see what I wrote / did in contrast to the reply-context
# 23:05 Loqi [Kartik Prabhu] Is it possible to design something similar for higher bases? base 3?
# 23:06 KartikPrabhu if I put the reply-context in there I would have a hard time designing it
