I find this timely given the discussion a week or so back https://css-tricks.com/words-avoid-educational-writing/

tbh I love how they do ads on css-tricks
#
jacky
like it's not _super_ noisy and I actually clicked on them because they're relevant to the content too
#
[tw2113_Slack_]
i mean, if i have to live with ads, though i don't thanks to addons, that's what i'd want

ok, I added "“we shouldn't mistake the ability to revisit your past experiences and thoughts for algorithmic cruelty – the answer to this cruelty isn't to destroy our digital time-machines; it's to seize the means of computation.” https://pluralistic.net/2021/04/06/digital-phrenology/#weaponized-nostalgia" to the "See Also" section of /on_this_day https://indieweb.org/wiki/index.php?diff=75211&oldid=75203

I don't know how to do a link to the Writers, tools and blogging platforms: an exchange heading at https://memex.naughtons.org/tuesday-6-april-2021-2/33463/ but it is crying out for someone more experienced than I to say something about how micropub could fulfill the need.

Except Winer would interpret it as an attack on his xml-rpc meta weblog api

Ulysses, which is mentioned in that post, added Micro.blog support a couple weeks ago by the way. It does use Micropub behind the scenes, but is hardcoded to Micro.blog for now. Could be expanded later to any Micropub server. (It actually supports a lot of new-ish Micropub stuff too… mp-destination, drafts, etc.)
#
[tantek]
Neat [manton]! Even if it's hard coded it’s still worth listing on the Micropub clients page
#
Loqi
hey [manton], [tantek]: we try to keep jargon out of this channel to make it more inviting to newcomers, can you move this to #indieweb-dev?
#
[tantek]
Lol ok Loqi how about this then?

What is a photo tag
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "photo tag" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "photo tag is ____", a sentence describing the term)

Wait really

I really like the clean minimal design of https://melanie-richards.com/ especially the fact that beyond the static-ish content at the top and bottom, the majority of the vertical space in the middle is "recent" and drawn from other updated parts of her site.

[tantek]
Note that her blog posts support Webmentions and she labels the section "Responses" (which I think is good) https://melanie-richards.com/blog/learning-log-2103/

Well, yes. Winer is the problem in that dialogue.

tantek, I liked her site as well. I also appreciated how she re-framed the idea of a link log sort of post as a "learning log". (And especially liked that particular post for the introduction to a new spaced repetition web app for learning Japanese Kanji). Beyond that I'm sort of freaking out about how she's doing the images and hover effects for her books at https://highlights.melanie-richards.com/ which is an awesome effect I completely
#
[chrisaldrich]
want on my site now.

Those SVG background images are a cool effect

Also in true IndieWeb fashion, she's documented some of it here: https://melanie-richards.com/blog/highlights-minisite/

If anyone has pointers for how to create these kinds of svg outline images, that would be cool.
#
jacky
ohhh nice
lahacker joined the channel; ShadowKyogre left the channel
#
jacky
yeah I think something like that is done using a vector tool (like Inkscape or an equivalent)
#
jacky
one could ask them!
#
jacky
but I think that's how I'd do it
#
jacky
doubt that this is something that'd be easy to automat

I'll be honest, I've got to close my browser for a bit... her website(s) are a treasure trove of too many things I want on my website so I'm going to have to take a break before I fall down too many rabbit holes and lose the entire day. Books, bucketlists, crafts... oh my.

What is a bucketlist?

#
[chrisaldrich]
What is a page?
#
Loqi
page is short for web page on the IndieWeb, and is usually primarily known by its name and kept updated in place in contrast to posts which are primarily datetime-based; a page that is browser-editable with viewable revisions is a wiki-page https://indieweb.org/page
#
[chrisaldrich]
Does anyone else have a bucketlist page?

I dislike the framing of bucket list. But maybe because I have no desire to kick the bucket, and having a long list would just make me anxious.

I do wonder where the metaphor came from
#
[tantek]
wp just notes equivalence to wish list which I guess fits?

Hey all. I got my coronavirus vaccine yesterday (yay) but today I feel like I have the flu (boo.) Could I ask someone to step up as host for for tonight's HWC America? Maybe GWG or lahacker. Thanks
