@JerryMichalski @j3rry@toolsforthought.rocks With respect to your idea of a NeoDeck, I’m reminded of a slideshow set up that was built into a MediaWiki site which might fit some of the prototype you’re seeking?

Individual pages could also likely be done via transclusion thereby giving one the ability to create re-orderable versions.

      @chrisaldrich is a 1-1 mirroring of all posts from my WordPress site into Mastodon/Fediverse using ActivityPub. It’s an evolving experiment (and sometimes wonky because of some custom post types I use which sometimes don’t map easily into some platforms and the recent upgrade to Mastodon 4.0). The results often look even better in some other ActivityPub platforms, and particularly if you’re following it from a Hometown-based server which better respects the longer article nature of those posts. One of the features you’ll notice from the Mastodon side is that I can add some richer media like text wrapped with links, which Mastodon doesn’t allow one to post. I expect it to slowly work better with Mastodon and other ActivityPub clients over time.

      @chrisaldrich is an account into which I selectively syndicate portions of content from my website (usually publicly relevant short notes and links to longer articles). The Twitter mention was stripped because it was syndicated into Mastodon where no one will care about it or it might cause namespace conflicts. (Similarly, if it were syndicated into Twitter, the Mastodon @mention would have been stripped.) You’ll notice that the post was also unceremoniously truncated as Mastodon only allows 500 characters, so to see the balance of the post you’d need to click through the link at the bottom.

      Ideally, I’m slowly trying to make the site subscribe-able and readable from a variety of clients and platforms with the best possible fidelity so that people can choose their favorite/convenient method. I support RSS, Atom, JSONfeed, microformats (especially for social readers), and ActivityPub.

      You might also notice that my site supports two way conversations from a variety of platforms including Mastodon and Reddit among others. (This is primarily leveraged using the Webmention specification and some third-party services like Brid.gy.)

      One of these days I’ll get around to wiring up a proper online version of my ZK to do all of these functions too.

      Syndicated copies:

      1. @chrisaldrich Interesting to see your integration in action — i.e. the post here, but also the full reply in your “comments”. Didn’t realize you could syndicate Reddit, actually. 🙂 Still putting to try integration of webmentions off, even though static sites nowadays can handle this far more easily.

  1. Is there a demo of this? I looked at the ‘example’ and the first line was ‘get a new domain name’ and it struck me as impractical for something I just want to look at.

      Stephen, Try clicking on the green “Start Presentation” button on the example to get the page to have the requisite presentation features. Once you’re in that you can page forward and backward with your keyboard arrows or use the forward arrow at the bottom of the page.

      1. Thanks, that works. 🙂

    So the “slide” pages could be included on the presentation page through transclusion links? Sounds good.

    From there, a slide-sorter view is a step away? 🙂
