Read Bringing Back the Personal Site by Jay Hoffmann (jayhoffmann.com)
There have been quite a few articles recently about the importance of the personal site, and the blogging community. It’s a sentiment I’m super excited about. Rian Van Der Merwe has probably the simplest point. Blogs are the front page of the internet, and it’s their freedom that gives them ...

Read Iron Man and me by Jeremy KeithJeremy Keith (adactio.com)
All of my Flickr pictures are published under a Creative Commons attribution licence. One of the reasons I switched over to using this licence was so that people didn’t have to write and ask me whenever they want to republish one of my photos. But I still get plenty of emails from people asking me...

An awesome little story and an interesting tidbit about movie clearance offices.

When you buy something online that there is no Consumer Reports or Wirecutter review of, how do you decide what to get? There are a lot of what appear to be review sites on the web, but I guess they're all ads for what they recommend. I don't think the search engines have gotten around to this yet. Here's a search for "best bike cover." Which if any of them are serious criticism by people who know the area.

I'm glad to see a few #indieweb people building on OPML. There's a lot you can do with it. For example, the native file format of LO2 is OPML. So it's really good for editing subscription lists for feed readers. And editing blogrolls. My listicle tool takes OPML files as input. And River6, coming soon, does a bunch with OPML. There's also feedBase which will blow your mind if you love sharing subscription lists. Yes there's a lot to discover in OPML-land and more on the way.

I should write a howto to explain editing subscription lists in LO2. I wrote one for the OPML Editor in 2008. It still runs btw, I use it, sometimes even to edit subscription lists. Two key bits for LO2: 1. You can make outlines public. Look in the File menu. 2. And you can edit the attributes of a headline, click the suitcase icon in the left margin.

Some interesting tidbits to poke into here.

Content Warning (Earworm: Baby Shark)

This does make me wonder if Ryan Barrett’s website name is related? It would have been in his formative youth (circa 1985) in a nascent pre-web era. Do tell…

Incidentally Tom’s example here is another good reason for Why IndieWeb–one needn’t rely on a silo’s algorithm which may remove content for copyright violations even when it was done with fair use and/or satire in mind.

It’s also been a while since I’ve seen someone with a site that had a Trackback/Pingback URL box on their website like Tom does. Very cool and similar to the Webmention box on my own.
