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 ;)
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. #gurdy #indieweb
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?

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

Really looking forward to meeting up with all the #gurdy–playing friends I haven’t seen for a while this weekend at Halsway Manor!
