1. Aral Balkan: Dear PHP community, yes, you do have a sexism problem. <a class="auto-link" href="http://storify.com/aral/dear-php-community-yes-you-have-a-sexism-problem-w">storify.com/aral/dear-php-…</a> #phpness #phpuk13 #storify

    I’m trying to grow up but it’s hard past a certain age

    Ha, love it Aral Balkan :)

  2. Current Walters discussion: what is more useful when job seeking, GCSEs or cake-making ability (demonstrated through providing the potential employer with a cake to try)

  3. @fraying I'd be fascinated to know if you have any process for handling fighter deaths at cutefight? A morbid interest sure, but it’s going to happen and was wondering if you had some special way to handle it? Virtual funeral/gravestone where former competitors can pay their respects, for example?

  4. Derek Powazek: Seriously, people. If you have a pet, you've gotta sign up for Cute-Fight. Look at this glorious page! <a class="auto-link" href="http://cute-fight.com/fighters/3">cute-fight.com/fighters/3</a>

    fraying I don't have a pet currently but I love what you're doing with cute fight — the logos in particular are perfect

  5. I have to say that whilst ’s data export functionality is rubbish, their URLs and use of conneg made it really easy to roll my own. A little hacking with the web inspector (tracking XHR, looking up headers and content) was all that was required — and now it’s documented, so no-one else will have to spend time doing so.

Sophie Dennis: <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/aaronpk">Aaron Parecki</a> yeah, maybe more UX-y design-y people like me and <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/laurakalbag">Laura Kalbag</a> need to start helping with that... cc <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters">Barnaby Walters</a>

    sophiedennis Laura Kalbag that’d be brilliant! We really need more designers/UX people helping out. Perhaps discuss it further at ?

  7. Sophie Dennis: <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters">Barnaby Walters</a> I agree with <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/laurakalbag">Laura Kalbag</a> : the challenge for #indieweb is ease-of-use - that, not privacy/control, is how platforms win

    sophiedennis one of the interesting things about is that there’s almost no discussion about privacy or security. It’s completely focused on sharing, content ownership and lowering the barrier to entry.

  8. Laura Kalbag: <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters">Barnaby Walters</a> unfortunately not easily enough to setup on your own space. (I’m talking really basic users).

    Laura Kalbag also, things like Aral Balkan’s great wordpress export tools make it especially easy to migrate to self-hosted indieweb — hosted w/ own domain name redirect is the achievable first step.

    .Laura Kalbag “on your own space” is important but not a prerequisite of (IMO at least). The domain name is the most important thing, so starting with hosted wordpress.com or tumblr or even just redirecting to it is valid and an easy first step.

    I’d encourage you to check out the Getting Started Guide — feedback/edits gratefully accepted, it’s important to me that the guide is as helpful and clear as it can be.

  10. Laura Kalbag: <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters">Barnaby Walters</a> I agree in theory, but in practice the indie web of which you speak is only available to those with tech skills to make it.

    Laura Kalbag would you agree that wordpress.com (and to a lesser extent, other wordpress services) is non-techie-friendly? It supports most of the infrastructure we’re using on our sites (e.g. pubsubhubbub, pingback, microformats) and provided you hook up your own domain name is an equally valid way of owning your content/identity online as rolling your own.

  11. I was going to spend this evening working on browser extension, but I think it would be better spent providing a /data export utility for fellow ex users.

    From my initial researches, it looks like /u/username.json is the best bet, as it gives a JSON array of all posts written by username, along with like and comment data. It accepts a max_time=timestamp query param, and a _ query param, the function of which I am not sure of.

    To iterate through all the pages of posts from a certain user, start with their profile URL w/ .json tacked on the end, fetch all the items, get the datetime of the last item, convert that to a timestamp, fetch the same URL with ?max_time=timestamp, repeat until an empty array is returned.
