Hypothes.is Notebook

As I use my domain here as a commonplace book of sorts, below is a list of my highlights and comments across the web using the Hypothes.is annotation tool. It’s made possible by a plugin made by Kris Shaffer and discussed at Hypothes.is Aggregator ― a WordPress plugin and Hypothes.is as a public research notebook.

Getting granular with the claim that Trump is some media wizard - PressThink

They are regarded as slightly pathetic.

This may be one of Trump's few hot buttons... calling him pathetic or a looser.

Getting granular with the claim that Trump is some media wizard - PressThink

Trump is here said to be a wizard at media manipulation because he changes the subject. Deftly! As if a determined reporter could not change it back.

And isn't it common political practice for interviewees to not accept the premise of the question and then to pivot?

The Resident Web and Its Impact on the Academy - Hybrid Pedagogy

But the ability to work on indie projects is not available to all. The time and resources required to work indie are a sign of privilege, as is encouraging (and certainly expecting) all to work indie. As Anne Pasek writes, “all materials and practices … have a cost and thus a tollgate for participation.” (And there are many, often intersecting, forms of privilege that contribute to that “toll” ― race, gender, orientation, cultural background, economic background, able-bodiedness, etc.) So while indie work is great, and I’ve done a lot of it myself, we need to be careful about the ways in which we encourage and characterize indie work, noting in particular what it costs and who may be left behind or left out.

This is all important and certainly true. However, as someone who knows he's certainly privileged, I view my definition of indie as something that is also open for others to come behind me and use for free or have the ability to reuse and remix in a way that corporate interests or non-indie work wouldn't. In a large sense, to me this means that while I may be privileged (whether that be socio-economically or even the time-encumbered), I'm helping to lower the cost and the burden for the less privileged who may come behind me to be able to do more, go further, or go faster. In some sense too, as described, indie has such a nebulous definition. Often when I see it in a technology related space I really read it as "Open Sourced".

another example of power/winning behaviour...

The Countries Donald Trump Likes and Dislikes: A Crib Sheet

He says he admires Vladimir Putin as a “strong” leader

again, here, it's about appearing strong and being a winner.

The Countries Donald Trump Likes and Dislikes: A Crib Sheet

what a great job you are doing

As pointed out in this sister article (https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2017/05/trump-isis-losers/527925/) Trump only seems to be able to put things into perspective by either winners or losers. He doesn't seem to be able to see any of the other subtleties.

shifting it to another company which then gets to control (and even monetize) the conversation.

As I've heard in the Indieweb chat: "Silos gonna silo."

write your own blog post on your own damn site

And isn't this what everyone should really be doing anyway so that they own their own work and words?

Un-Annotated by Audrey Watters

I have added a script to my websites today that will block annotations

I’ve spent some time thinking about this type of blocking in the past and [written about a potential solution](http://boffosocko.com/2016/04/07/webmentions-for-improving-annotation-and-preventing-bullying-on-the-web/). Kevin Marks had created a script to help prevent this type of abuse as well; [his solution and some additional variants are freely available](http://indieweb.org/News_Genius). — {cja}

Un-Annotated by Audrey Watters

merely stops you from writing in the margins here on this website.

Does the script Audrey Watters is using really stop people from annotating her site directly? Based on my quick test, one can still (carefully) use Hypothes.is to highlight and annotate her site, but the script at least prevents Hypothes.is from showing that annotation. When visiting her site with Hypothes.is' Chrome browser extension on, it does show that there is one annotation on the page. It then requires some hunting to find this comment.

The billionaire’s typewriter | Butterick’s Practical Typography

You’re giv­ing up far more than de­sign choice. Mr. Williams de­scribes Medium’s key ben­e­fit as res­cu­ing writ­ers from the “ter­ri­ble dis­trac­tion” of for­mat­ting chores. But con­sider the cost. Though he’s bait­ing the hook with de­sign, he’s also ask­ing you, the writer, to let him con­trol how you of­fer your work to read­ers. Mean­ing, to get the full ben­e­fit of Medium’s de­sign, you have to let your story live on Medium, send all your read­ers to Medium, have your work per­ma­nently en­tan­gled with other sto­ries on Medium, and so on—a sig­nif­i­cant concession.

You're definitely not owning your own data.

The billionaire’s typewriter | Butterick’s Practical Typography

Min­i­mal­ism doesn’t fore­close ei­ther ex­pres­sive breadth or con­cep­tual depth. On the con­trary, the min­i­mal­ist pro­gram—as it ini­tially emerged in fine art of the 20th cen­tury—has been about di­vert­ing the viewer’s at­ten­tion from overt signs of au­thor­ship to the deeper pu­rity of the ingredients.

This also sounds like a great way to cook!

The Science of Why We Don't Believe Science

It's just that "science" was whatever they wanted it to be.

Donald Trump would be an extreme case of this in all things science or otherwise.

Mastodon, Twitter and publics

The furore over Fake News is really about the seizures caused by overactivity in these synapses - confabulation and hallucination in the global brain of mutual media. With popularity always following a power law, runaway memetic outbreaks can become endemic, especially when the platform is doing what it can to accelerate them without any sense of their context or meaning.

One might think that Facebook could easily analyze the things within their network that are getting above average reach and filter out or tamp down the network effects of the most damaging things which in the long run I suspect are going to damage their network overall.

Mastodon, Twitter and publics

In indieweb we have been saying ‘build things that you want for yourself’, but building things that you want for your friends or organisation is a useful step between generations.
