I tried leaving Facebook. I couldn’t - The Verge

“We have a hard time figuring out what Facebook actually is because we have a hard time admitting that at least part of what it supplanted is emotional labor — hard and valuable work that no one wants to admit was work to begin with.”

Thanks to our guest Sheila McMenamin for her conservative coverage in this week’s We Have to Ask Podcast!

Marty and Jonathan get to the root of what is growing in our neighborhoods. How are trees picked for a block? Who is planting these trees? Their guest this week has all the answers.

Do you have access to a 3D printer? Help us make an unbelievably large statue of Rosie the Riveter!

We The Builders, Jennifer Schachter, Adam Savage, and tons of attendees at Nation of Makers Conference 2018 (NOMCON) will assemble it in June.

There are over 2600 parts to print, so that means we need to get going now!

Here’s a message about it from Adam Savage himself!


So go sign up and get those parts a-printing!

You butchered my name there XD I think I'll do what Torvalds did and record a small audio snippet to have people know the correct prononciation :) is there a h-card property for that kind of info that you know of?

Apologies for my terrible pronunciation! 😱 I would personally thank anyone who adds an audio pronunciation guide to their homepage. 😂 I don’t know if there’s mf2 for that, yet, but there are examples in the wild that could help shape it!

Setting up WordPress for IndieWeb use

“I spent some time this morning doing a dry run through setting up a suite of IndieWeb plugins on a fresh WordPress installation. Going off of a scant outline I talked for almost two hours describing IndieWeb functionality as I set it all up.”
