YOU KNOW SHIT IS GOING DOWN WHEN @NYTIMES RUNS ALL CAPS HEADLINES
As part of getting back into using micro.blog I’ve been working to customize my hosted site. One of the things I wanted to do was add webmentions rather then comments like Disqus.
I'm super happy to announce the launch of a new website for IndieWeb events at events.indieweb.org! This website is a place to find and post events for the IndieWeb community.
I realized I have been avoiding leaving tips in Foursquare because I didn't have a good way to post them from my website. So today I added the ability to syndicate my posts as Foursquare tips.
Recently I finally set up a shopping site for me to sell some of my art and other merch. In doing so I evaluated a bunch of different shopping cart providers, and decided I should share my findings.
So, that's it, then. My prediction is that Brexit will happen as planned in 2020, and that later in the year, unless the progressive movement achieves the impossible, Donald Trump will be re-elected as President. If you work for a company like Facebook, this is on you. If you could have voted but di...
As arbitrary as they are, these transitions provide a kind of useful punctuation - a spot to stop and breathe. For me, I think it might be useful to reflect on where I was at the start of the previous decade, where I am now, and where I'd like to be ten years from now.Ten years ago I lived in Oxford...
Chanukah is upon us next week, and I’ve added to my Youtube Chanukah playlist, which complements my digital music collection of Chanukah songs. It includes some fun ones from Acapella groups that do an annual Chanukah song.

Christmas gets 11 Sirius channels that begin November 1st…Clearly we need more Chanukah songs…they are running out.
I just set up b2evolution CMS/blog(s) ver 6.11.4. It has the ability to send and receive Webmentions as per the Indieweb. This was discussed before but now I can confirm. I’m still wandering around the backend getting familier with it.
With holidays cards rolling in daily, it's the time of year where my wife has to continually respond to me with "yes, they've had # kid(s) for A WHILE NOW" with a heavy eye roll as if I'm supposed to remember ever.... oh crap I left the keys in the car brb— Jeffrey B.

I very much enjoyed reading What Happened to Tagging, by Alexandra Samuel, so thanks to Aaron Davis for the link . I do think, however, that she is being entirely too negative about the state of play today. Aaron singled out one wistful quote, about the web we could have. I noted that the author cou...
