Alas there is no true feed on this site…
Following much of the recent Facebook privacy and data scandal over the past several days, 1–4 today I deleted 169 of 184 apps which had access to all or parts of my Facebook data. Often many of them also had access to data by proxy of my family, friends, and acquaintances.
Of those apps still remaining, 7 are apps that I’ve made personally, and the remainder solely help me export data from Facebook. Short of quitting the platform altogether, this feels like a good first step to limiting the data that I leak into the platform and their partners.
For several years now I’ve been posting content to my own personal website first and syndicating it to Facebook secondarily. Few, if any, of these old apps need any legitimate access to my account anymore presuming that they ever really did.
Want to do an audit of your own app access and make a similar purge? The IndieWeb community has some resources for doing so quickly. Looking for a better place to own and better control your own data? They can help there too.

This is a test or alpha episode of An Indieweb Podcast (working title).
In it, David Shanske and and I talk about a variety of Indieweb topics, with the theme of “Considering the User”, inspired by an article we were reading this week. Other topics include: home automation, generations, itches, Webmention, and some examples of the Post Kinds Plugin in practice (exercise, issues, chickens).
In the future we hope to have additional broad ranging conversations and perhaps interviews with others about various IndieWeb related topics.
Part of this is also an opportunity to improve audio post presentations on our websites over time. While David posted the “original” of this post on his site, I had to debate whether or not I would technically repost it or make an original of my own. Ultimately I opted for the latter.
David, by far the more veteran podcaster, deserves the lion’s share of the credit for his audio set up and recording facilities.

Found the brush pens and paper I was looking for at Daiso Japan here. Got the last of two different kana notebooks they had in stock.
They’ve got an awesome selection! Possibly even better than what I’d seen on Amazon recently. The clerk said their Alhambra location was even bigger, so I’ll have to go there soon.
The Pentel Arts Pocket Brush Pen was by far the best pen I tested today, but at over $20, it was on the expensive side and probably wouldn’t do as well for me at present with my mediocre skills at the moment. I’ll circle back around to it when I’ve practiced my kana a little longer.
I ended up buying a couple pens and two notebooks.
2 Kuretake TSF1-10 double sided brush pen with fine and medium points for $7.90
1 Kyokuto notebook with 10 column lines for kana and space for ふりがな (furigana) for $3.55.
1 Tales from Moomin Valley notebook with 7 column lines for kana (with dotted squares) $3.00
(great for little kids and practicing kana)
They’ve got some great Japanese household goods and inexpensive imports here. Purchased a couple of lawn sprinklers. I was also hoping to find some brush pens and paper for kana, but alas.
