Reply to IndieWeb Press This bookmarklets for WordPress by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (collect.readwriterespond.com)
I have been using Dave Winer’s Radio3 platform/bookmarklet, but would rather a process which would allow me to store bookmarks on my blog and POSSE them. I was therefore wondering about creating a similar bookmarklet that generates ‘Bookmark’ post-kinds, as well as the possibility of posting from mobile? Am I going down the wrong path, especially as WordPress tinkers with ‘Press This’?
Aaron, the IndieWeb PressThis version bookmarklets are certainly a laudable solution for bookmarking things (even as WordPress moves the functionality of the original out of core), but I suspect you may find a more robust solution given some of your current set up.

To AMP, or Not To AMP, That is the Question: Whether ’tis Nobler in the Mind to Bookmarklet

"Hi. My name is Chris and I'm a web browser bookmarklet junkie." Accelerated Mobile Pages I've been following most of the (Google) Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) discussion (most would say debate) through episodes of This Week in Google where Leo Laporte plays an interesting foil to Jeff Jarvis over the issue. The other day I…

IndieWeb “Press This” Bookmarklet for WordPress

IndieWeb press this by Matthias PfefferleMatthias Pfefferle (GitHub)
I'm not sure why I didn't upgrade this ages ago when I saw it mentioned (probably because of the manual nature of the upgrade and the fact that I don't think it's bundled into the IndieWeb plugin for WordPress), but here we go. And this is the first post actually using the bookmarklet. IndieWeb press…

Reply to What Was Known by Jim Groom

What Was Known by Jim Groom (bavatuesdays)
...the issue for me was Known was contextless for social media. I often post across various sites in response to things and share my photos as part of a conversation, so doing it through Known seemed a bit like working in a vacuum. I use Twitter less and less for discussion, so I wonder if I would feel different about this now, but what I wanted from Known was a way to also view and respond to Tweets, Facebooks statuses, photos on Flickr, Instagram, etc. A kind of reader for my content that would collapse those various conversations for me, and I could respond through my Known as if I was within those apps. I increasingly thought Known would make an awesome read//write feed reader if it had such a feature. The main reason Known fell by the wayside for me was I was not using it to publish in all these spaces, rather doing it post-facto if at all. Does that make sense?
Interestingly, Known had a lot of these features hidden in code under the hood. Sadly they weren't all built out. It in fact, did have much of a reader (something which Ben indicated they were going to take out of the v1.0 release to slim down the code since it wasn't being used). It also…
Here’s the latest version of my quick-reply bookmarklet. by gRegor MorrillgRegor Morrill (gregorlove.com)
Here’s the latest version of my quick-reply bookmarklet. It lets me reply to any URL now, not just tweet URLs. Copy and paste the below as a bookmark, changing http://example.com/endpoint/?url= to your desired endpoint. javascript:(function(){var endpoint='http://example.com/endpoint/?url=';if(document.location.hostname=='twitter.com'){var container;if(!(container=document.querySelector('.selected-stream-item'))){if(!(container=document.querySelector('.permalink-tweet-container'))){alert('Could not find tweet permalink. Are you sure a specific tweet is selected?');return false;}}var in_reply_to='https://twitter.com'+container.children[0].getAttribute('data-permalink-path');window.open(endpoint+encodeURIComponent(in_reply_to));}else{var in_reply_to=document.location.href;window.open(endpoint+encodeURIComponent(in_reply_to));}}())
Thanks gRegor! This seems to work like a charm with the Post Kinds Plugin endpoints.

👓 Building Digital Workflows by Aaron Davis

Building Digital Workflows by Aaron Davis (Read Write Respond)
Whether it is how we write or stay organised, technology is always adapting and evolving. Here are a few of the recent changes to my digital workflows.
An interesting philosophy of regularly changing workflows. I've done this for a long time, but never really given it a name. There's a nice tip about the Listen functionality in Pocket which I hadn't yet heard about. I'm also curious how they've implemented highlighting and what I might do with it. I suspect that if…

Feed reader revolution

It's time to embrace open & disrupt social media

A reply to John Carlos Baez on “Bye-bye, Google+ — but what next?”

Bye-bye, Google+ — but what next? by John Carlos Baez (Google+)
Google+ is sliding downhill. A couple years ago my posts would garner comments from lots of smart people, leading to long and deep discussions. These days only a few stalwarts remain — a skeleton crew. I've copied most of my posts here to my website and blog. I mainly post here out of inertia: for certain purposes, I haven't found anything better yet. As for the reasons, I agree with +Gideon Rosenblatt's analysis. Also read the many comments on his post! But the more important question is: what to do now? Instead of whining about our masters, we should be our own masters — and unleash our creative energies! A bottom-up approach, run by all of us, could be better than top-down corporate control. A diverse, flexible federation could be better than a single unified platform.
Mastodon I've been watching or on Mastodon since about October of last year. While it does have some interesting/useful features that differentiate it from the rest of the corporate silos, in some senses it's got worse problems. Average users are still putting blind trust in the (mostly/completely anonymous) administrators of the individual federated versions--and these…
