@hugoroyd I don’t actually get suggestions from DDG, the suggestions are from Google, but my search goes through DDG. Thinking about it, this probably actually negates many privacy benefits and I should turn it off.
@john_nye well I guess that answers the age-old question “who tests the tests” — TestTest does!
Tom Morris are those on that wired article?
Actually, I don’t want to know.
The nice thing about using email to post videos is that it’s asyncronous — I can send the email and then go do something else, instead of having to either wait for it to upload or do the “if I switch apps now will it stop uploading argh what do I do” dance.
E.G. if I’ve replied to one of your notes/tweets and stored a reply context so even if your copy goes down my content still makes sense, but you delete the original — should I delete it, devaluing my own content? Should I mark it as changed or deleted?
@seb_ly also kinda hilarious that they threaten to “print out” reposts. Tempted to alter my print styles to give them a little surprise…
Aaron Parecki sssh! I got a good thing going on here :D
Aral Balkan just booking my flights+accommodation etc., any news RE the design workshop you mentioned? Would be handy to know if solidified so I can adjust travel plans :)
The #indieweb is a social network that works like the web
Great work getting webmention set up and your content marked up with microformats!
At the moment of the method is built around a POSSE architecture. This works well for long form articles which can stand alone but address issues or ideas that are posted on an external website.
The evidence is against you here, as almost all known usage of webmention has been for short replies which don’t make sense without context.
But if that is all there is to webmentions it is just a nicer implementation of Pingback.
Pingback succeeded because it was simple. Webmention is even simpler, for good reason.
However the current workflow is awkward and i doubt it will catch on with the general public. Sophisticated Indieweb users can and will read an article on an external site and then return to their own to post a comment, but that king of behaviour is not intuitive.
I absolutely agree! I’m trying various different approaches to making this easier (and making web content more actionable in general), currently I’m using web action toolbelt to really quickly reply to content on other sites. There’s been a lot of discussion about this, and it’s something which everyone can work on as more people start implementing indieweb comments.
I make the comment on the external site and as part of making the comment I add my author url, that being the url of my own site. The external site then sends a webmention of the comment to my site. My own site could then scrapes my comment and saves a copy in my CMS. Otionall I could republish the comment in my blog or activity feed at my discretion. Thus fully implementing PESOS.
We actually discussed this exact flow at IWCUK 2012, but no-one ever implemented it because, with browser extensions, there’s no need to log in to other people’s sites (complex to implement) and have those sites post to each other (security hole).
Thanks for bringing these issues up, it’s great to have new people join the discussion! I’ll start documenting your points on the Indiewebcamp wiki — it’s there and on the #indiewebcamp IRC room where most discussion takes place.
But if you need compatibility with older browsers, a table might still be the best tool for the job.
Oh practicaltypography.com, you were doing so well. Table styling via CSS, yes. Table markup, never apart from data tables.
@benwerd nice — but what is that in a sane unit? “Floors” have never made any sense to me :/
