1. Active Boredom: the state of being consciously bored but (usually) unable to otherwise divert yourself, as opposed to passive boredom, which is more of a subconsious feeling that something new should be happening soon.

  2. superfeedr: Barnaby Walters Thanks Barnaby :) [Also, I could not log into your site with indieAuth :/]

    superfeedr yeah, there’s a weird bug where logging in only works the second time round — I haven’t fixed it yet as I rarely have to log in! At the mo there is little benefit to others logging in but I may add private content/collaborative features in the future. Crowd-sourced typo fixing FTW ;)

  3. My Gurdy Sheet Music listing is a bit old and tired in implementation and purpose as well as design. Currently re-building it as a much more flexible system with a much wider scope — I’ll be hosting my own tunes, and tunes I’ve transcribed as well as the trad. material which I’ve already got.

  4. Christopher Aliotta: SOCML: A standardized social media data standard Christopher Aliotta Posted on February 11, 2013 I recently posted a proposal for a “Federated Social Network Data Standard” on the groups Wiki. I admit, that I have not searched the web thoroughly with respect to other initiatives like this; however, given the superficial research I have done, I have come to the conclusion that there are no open dialogs currently on this topic. Over the next couple of days I will begin posting proposed technical specifications for the standard. I would like for everyone to contribute feedback and make suggestions/modifications. The solution I am proposing is simple: we need to standardize social media content such that independent developers can create their own services that can share and aggregate data under a common standard. Much like the RSS format, this data standard should be open and free, not encumbered by patents, and be easy to implement.

    Hey Christopher,

    I have some questions.

    Firstly, who are you? Have you worked on any social-web related projects before? Do you own your identity on the web (i.e. have a personal URL)? Do you post content under your own domain? Do you actively encrypt many of your communications?

    If not, with what authority/experience/motive are you proposing a “standardized standard” for social data? If you have not put effort into building and using your identity on the web, why should any of us who have care about your proposal, as it is unlikely to be relevant to the actual problems faced by people trying to implement this stuff?

    Secondly, why is your wiki username socml? Making your username the name of the thing you’re proposing strikes me as odd, if not slightly arrogant.

    Thirdly, have you heard of activitystrea.ms? Judging by your admission that you “have not searched the web

  5. URLs don't just give addressability, they give accountability. When there's a URL, someone is responsible for it. When a thing (concept, object, document, proposal, idea, etc.) has a URL, it can be discussed, supported, contested, referenced and documented.

    URLs are valuable things. We must treat them with respect.

  6. Application of notes or similar: reminding people to contact people in areas they don't go to often. Potential flow:

    • I create an event with a location
    • my software searches my contacts for people in this area
    • a list of those contacts are presented in a non modal fashion
    • If I can't remember where I met the person, hovering on them shows date and location of when I added them to my contacts
  7. Learning new trompette patterns with Gregory Jolivet, and decided to try to evolve a micro syntax for representing them in notes, so I can add some SVG or Audio-API magic afterwards.
