An important piece to owning your content is also having a direct connection to people who want to hear from you.
This one is certainly nowhere near as gory as yesterday’s but I imagine the smell of a person being vaporised is probably somewhat pungent.
I’ve got a few vaporisations in the 30 days so I might follow this one up with more of the disintegration process (like in that TNG episode with the bugs and that guy’s face melts off in possibly one of the weirdest tonal changes in the show).
I’ve attended both IndieWebCamp Düsseldorf and Utrecht last month. At the first one, we had a very good session about the UI side of private posts. The blogpost I wrote about it unfortunately stayed in draft. The summary: I used to denote private posts by adding the word ‘privé’ in bold below the post, next to the timestamp. Since the hackday I now show a sort-of header with a lock icon, and a text telling you that only you can see the post, or you and others, if that’s the case.
A big takeaway from Düsseldorf was that I don’t need to do it all at once. To me, the first step to private posts is letting people login to your site. This can be done with IndieAuth, or by using IndieAuth.com (which will move to IndieLogin.com at some point). The second step is to mark a post as private in your storage, and only serve it to people who are logged in. The third step is to add a list of people who can see the post, and only show it to those people. This is the place where I was at.

As part of the Indieweb Book Club for Ruined by Design by Mike Monteiro I just acquired a paperback copy of this book. Just did a fast skim page through: I expect I’ll agree with some of Monteiro’s basic premises about design, I also noticed that the a...
