It looks like they’ve got a wealth of great resources with many things that can fit a variety of schedules with activities each day that take either 5, 20, or 30 minutes.
I encourage others to join us.
Starting it either contemporaneously with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day or even Inauguration day would have been great and highly appropriate, but given what I’m seeing so far, they’ve got a lot more material so I can probably extend it far beyond 21 days to extend through the entirety of Black History month as well.
Results were promised back in September. Any update on them? Some of us are anxious to see them.
How awesome would it be if IFTTT supported the W3C recommendation for Micropub? An endpoint like this could immediately be used to publish content to lots of websites with higher data fidelity and potentially better control over display.
I’m using something similar to bootstrap it with Webhooks, but had to jump through some additional hoops that IFTTT could smooth out.
It warms my heart to see another person in the education/library space using Webmention on their site. Even more so when I think that Jez Cope is doing so while starting to build an online community. Being able to communicate from website-to-website this way while also being able to reach out to people who choose to use Twitter or Mastodon is a very powerful thing to see and is an incredible example within the Education, Domain of One’s Own, and Library Carpentry spaces.
So much of the tone of this piece has not only an IndieWeb feel, but also sounds like it could benefit from some of the organizational structure that I’ve seen the IndieWeb employ, particularly small scale events and collaborations I’ve seen at Homebrew Website Clubs. This may help to
“Organise less-formal learning and sharing events to complement the more formal training already available within organisations and the wider sector, including “show and tell” sessions, panel discussions, code cafés, masterclasses, guest speakers, reading/study groups, co-working sessions, …”
Most under the IndieWeb and some under the IndieWeb for Education and Blogger headings will support webmentions.
If you’d like, you can add a Webmention button to your site to visually indicate that you support it.
: Also, if you want to meet some “in person”, I’d welcome you to join one of our virtual meetups coming up: https://events.indieweb.org/
"Finally, the biography that Sylvia Plath deserves . . . A spectacular achievement." --Ruth Franklin, author of Shirley Jackson: A Rather Haunted Life
The highly anticipated new biography of Sylvia Plath that focuses on her remarkable literary and intellectual achievements, while restoring the woman behind the long-held myths about her life and art. With a wealth of never-before-accessed materials--including unpublished letters and manuscripts; court, police, and psychiatric records; and new interviews--Heather Clark brings to life the brilliant daughter of Wellesley, Massachusetts who had poetic ambition from a very young age and was an accomplished, published writer of poems and stories even before she became a star English student at Smith College in the early 1950s. Determined not to read Plath's work as if her every act, from childhood on, was a harbinger of her tragic fate, Clark evokes a culture in transition, in the shadow of the atom bomb and the Holocaust, as she explores Plath's world: her early relationships and determination not to become a conventional woman and wife; her conflicted ties to her well-meaning, widowed mother; her troubles at the hands of an unenlightened mental-health industry; her Cambridge years and thunderclap meeting with Ted Hughes, a marriage of true minds that would change the course of poetry in English; and much more.
Clark's clear-eyed portraits of Hughes, his lover Assia Wevill, and other demonized players in the arena of Plath's suicide promotes a deeper understanding of her final days, with their outpouring of first-rate poems. Along with illuminating readings of the poems themselves, Clark's meticulous, compassionate research brings us closer than ever to the spirited woman and visionary artist who blazed a trail that still lights the way for women poets the world over.
Two awesome and interesting WordPress query strings for browsing websites:
- Example: https://ma.tt/?orderby=modified (Today, this indicates that for his 37th birthday post, Matt apparently went back and made a few tweaks/updates to some prior birthday posts.)
- Example: https://ma.tt/?orderby=comment_count
These could be used in combination with a
/feed/ path to get an update of a WordPress site, potentially for updating posts within one’s digital garden and distributing as a feed.
A lot of it depends on what you what to do with it—which features and functionalities. Hopefully one or even a few of the plugins with minimal configuration will get you what you want.
Syndicating content can be a bit more involved, but only because there are so many methods depending on the level of control you want for the output and what sort of results you may want back from social silos.
Fell down a happy #IndieWeb rabbit hole today & wrote a colophon for my website: https://t.co/sY5HaJ4e7n Turns out I've been at this since I built my first website about Walt Whitman for an enterprising English prof in the late 90s.
