@benwerd is that an indieweb comments implementation I see there?
@benwerd I use markdown for initial authoring purely for speed, esp. when typing on mobile devices. After that I just edit the HTML. I’ve yet to come across a WYSIWIM editor which satisfied my semantic, well-structured HTML needs, any suggestions?
Battle for the planet of the APIs by Jeremy Keith — nice piece of writing, it’s worth pointing out that Twitter still includes rel=me links back to homepages, but is increasingly wrapping them with t.co, making them fairly useless.

Why is structured querying of your personal data important? Self-reflection.
Example in point: seeing what I’ve quoted, from who, about what, and what I’ve said about the quotes. How it’s changed over time. How I talk about it and present it in my personal context. From a technical point of view; how I mark it up.
Twitter does the opposite of this, and encourages us to throw away our history, much less peruse it and learn from it. Facebook aims to present a glorified timeline emphasising the most “important” events in our life. I feel neither are particularly valuable.
