1. Sandeep Shetty: @BarnabyWalters Very cool. What's the use-case though? Also is this coming of the doctrine based indexer that you had?

    @sandeepshetty thanks! I’ve wanted to plot tag usage over time for a while now to see if there are any interesting patterns. I’m not using doctrine any more, in fact I’m not even using a SQL database for indexing until I really need one — data stored in yaml files, indexed by a csv file in ~210 lines of code — see also waterpigs.co.uk/notes/4TQNY2

    When I post a note, adds one to the week counter for each tag, then I have an endpoint which makes that data into an SVG.

  2. 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.

  3. Sandeep Shetty: Anyone using/used/implemented machine tags (triple tags)? Are they worth it? #indieweb

    sandeepshetty add .json to the end of any of my note URLs and have a look in the tags array — or in the source (hidden by default) to see how I use them. I added location data to this note so you can see the tags I use for that.
