1. Aral Balkan: Barnaby Walters It’s up :) Looking forward to hearing your thoughts :) aralbalkan.com/notes/on-evolv…

    Aral Balkan there’s some excellent+useful constructive criticism in there! I think you’re still misunderstanding the problem being solved and why indieauth evolved to work the way it does, as the solutions you suggest are in fact a big part of the problem. We wrote up a collaborative point-by-point response to your article here: indiewebcamp.com/On_Evolving_IndieAuth_Followup, which hopefully explains things better than I did previously.

  2. Scott Jenson: Barnaby Walters FYI, this is how your tweet looks. I realize *why* of course but this feels only 50% POSSE pic.twitter.com/dBGiKU0Rqi

    @scottjenson referring to the truncation? I know what you mean, I made the conscious decision to ignore the length of truncated copies of my content as I didn’t want what felt like an unnecessary limitation of Twitter limiting my self-expression.

    Others (Tantek Çelik in particular) care more about the quality of their POSSEd notes, and build UIs which inform them when their notes go over tweet- or retweet-safe lengths. This is one of the places diversity of implementations helps us experiment without having to argue about stuff :)

    One interesting alternative is to spread the content of notes which are too long for a tweet over several tweets, but that leads to all sorts of weird directionality changes, potential for them to be interrupted, extra permalinks, etc.
