Unfortunately we had no time to find a guest this week, but we did enjoy ourselves at the American Visionary Art Museum’s fundraiser for the Kinetic Sculpture Race 2018!

🎧 Listened to “An Indieweb Podcast Episode 0” by David Shanske and Chris Aldrich.

I really enjoyed this pilot episode! I was particularly interested in some of the discussion around annotations for audio. I think I’ll spend some time noodling on using Jon Udell’s clipping tool to generate shareable snippet URLs, and updating my webmention handling to try and turn mentions with media fragment timestamps into pretty annotations.

In it, Chris Aldrich and I talk about a variety of Indieweb topics, with the theme of Considering the User, inspired by an article we were reading. Part of this is an opportunity to improve audio post presentation on my website, so you will see audio posts improve over time....

I’m really looking forward to seeing your implementation for authenticated feeds!

I recently set up Lasso for a private site that holds my notes and find it both a bit too heavy (I don’t want multi-domain SSO at the moment) and not flexible enough (no ACL support).

post from A Personal Reflection on the Passing of Stephen Hawking
I would like to to share my thoughts on the passing of Stephen Hawking. The renowned physicist and pop culture icon who expanded our boundaries of knowledge of the nature of the universe did so while fighting a lifelong battle with ALS motor neuron disease. His iconic electronic voice is the most famous piece of assistive technology for the disabled...

post from Building an IndieWeb Reader
Over the last several months, I've been slowly putting the pieces in place to be able to build a solid indieweb reader. Today, I feel like I finally have enough in place to consider this functional enough that I am now using it every day! One of the major missing pieces of the IndieWeb ecosystem has been having an integrated reading...
