I saw this and instantly connected to it. I think its really comical. The first week or so of this course I have felt old/out of touch and behind trying to navigate all these sites, and meet expectations. Now that I have a better sense of things I just have all ...

1. Here we have a teacher super excited to find open educational resources.
2. Here we have that same teacher sharing with her friends how she is going to enjoy her snow day on snapchat (thinking it is private).
3. Here we have that teacher making the news.

Just added an article about context collapse on the wiki with @kevinmarks as we study open v privacy in . Perfect example of how open pedagogy works in the wild.

Just a quick note: ostensibly to fight algorithmic propaganda, Facebook is shutting off API access to publish to profiles tomorrow. I expect other platforms to follow. That's completely their right. The indieweb has this intrinsic idea of Publishing on your Own Site, Syndicating Elsewhere: automatic...

👓 IndieWeb has many meanings and a singluar meaning | Gist

Note: this will probably be rambling and will need editing to add links and such, but I needed to put it odwn and put it out there

IndieWeb has many meanings and a singluar meaning–own your content on a domain you control. Plumbing, how you create the content, how it is stored and how you display it is all up to you. As long as it is your content that you can take with you on a domain name you control, you are IndieWeb already.

But with the recently published article about Webmentions, IndieWeb also takes on having the ability to also interact from your own site. A practical example:

  • I publish this post its syndicated to Twitter, micro.blog and a feed (atom as well as jsonfeed).
  • You reply with a tweet, it shows up as a comment on the site. Someone else replies within micro.blog, same thing. Someone else reads it in their feed reader and writes a blog post sendinga webmention, same - shows up as a comment.
  • I can reply natively to each comment and it will aggregate back to my site.

All accomplished with existing WordPress plugins available in the wp.org repo.

The catch? Microformats. Specifically Microformats 2. That is the semantic markup in the theme that facilitates communicating the context of the content.

WordPress still supports the original microformats, which can cause problems when parsing mf2. There was an attempt to introduce mf2 into WP core

Then, it was closed as wontfix because changing a class name might break themes that used it as a style hook.

I can't see how the change could be made without breaking a majority of WordPress sites.

That was 2 years ago. And while I'm still trying to get an exact current state of affairs to know precisely what needs changed, I'm saying its time to rethink this decision.

WordPress has always had the tag line "democratizing the web." As we enter a new phase of the Internet and fears of walled gardens and homogonized social silos, now more than ever WordPress should use a major update to introduce what I would suggest a minor breaking change in display on some sites to allow further development of inter-site communication using WordPress.

Gutenberg is ushering in a slew of changes in how themes will work best, so if there is a good time to change something like a css class, why not now?

I ran across this article when searching to see if the ‘post kinds’ plugin for WordPress allowed for a way to view posts by kind. And it does! While I was there, this post from Chris Aldrich kinda opened my eyes to the many cool things you can do with this. !

Glad you seem to have gotten it all working Glenn!
