Podcasts I am Listening To
This is one of those posts I have wanted to write but kept forgetting to. I was reminded again while chatting with Marty, and when I asked him what podcasts he recommended, he went and wrote a whole post. So it's time I finally wrote mine. I'll try to break mine down into categories, too. Well-known You've probably heard of...

HWC Baltimore 2017-05-31 Wrap-Up

Baltimore's second May 2017 meetup for Homebrew Website Club met at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center on May 31st.

Below are notes from the "broadcast" portion of the meetup.

jonathanprozzi.net - Since last time, did some cosmetic updates to site. Also did a lot of traveling. Catching up now on finishing a series of posts he started at last HWC (May 10th). Now one-and-a-half posts behind his schedule. Wants to stick with consistency of writing something once per week.

amyhurst.com - Working on a website for work (something that is usually on her "some day" list). Gathering student questions from emails into an FAQ on a Wordpress site.

martymcgui.re - Added JSON Feed to blog.adafruit.com because it was easy and why not? Also talked about webmention notifications in his home Matrix chat server via Hubot. Is interested in more textual/conversational interfaces for things in his life and fewer apps and pages to remember to look at.

metamage.com (jjuran.org) - All sites now HTTPS. A couple are HTTP/HTTPS for classic MacOS clients, others are HTTPS-only. Used PNG/GIF and CSS to make a screenshot of an emulator animate when moused-over (bottom of https://www.v68k.org/advanced-mac-substitute/). Some fun browser issues w/ image handling (dithering?) in Safari. His site uses a homebrew Perl static site generator, shared CSS across all his sites. Planning to rework it in the V language.

Chatted about Micropub becoming a W3C Recommendation, including going through Aaron Parecki's announcement post, which is a very clear walk through of the development process. Talked about micro.blog as an up-and-coming social platform that supports Micropub out of the box. Talked about the power of social nudges (like "how's that project going?") for making progress on projects. Two of us (jjuran and martymcgui.re) will be at IndieWeb Summit in Portland later this June and are looking forward to it!

We hope that you'll join us for the next HWC Baltimore on June 28th at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center!

🎧 What Podcasts am I Listening To? May 2017 Edition

When gRegor became the third person in a week to ask me what podcasts I listen to, I realized that this is something that changes a lot, and might be worth taking the time to review periodically!

I tend to think of my podcasts by category, so I'll attempt to break them down below.

Obligatory (several people recommended them and/or they're advertised everywhere):

  • S-Town (yep, it is really very good. also, it is finite!)
  • 99% Invisible (everything is designed by people and that is beautiful and troubling)

Comedy

Tech

Narrative

Gaming (RPG and Otherwise)

Friends' Projects (disclaimer: I have been a guest on some of these)

Politics and World Issues

Whew! This took a while. I have a frightening number of podcasts in my reader (I use AntennaPod).

What do you think? Any surprise overlaps? Anything you want to check out, or suggest that I check out?

Micropub is a W3C Recommendation
I'm excited to announce that Micropub is now a W3C Recommendation! It's been a long road, but we made it! This is the final stage in the W3C spec lifecycle, and means that the spec has gone through several stages of review, and all parts of the spec have been implemented by at least two people. Incubation and Selfdogfooding Micropub...

Thanks to our guest Kylie for quelling our quarrel with questions in this week’s We Have to Ask Podcast!

Microformats : Meaningful HTML

“By adding Microformats to your HTML, your website becomes more understandable to various kinds of computers.

  • Search engines can make sense of your HTML which allows them to display a better version in their search results.
  • Browser extensions can enable your readers to download information to their contacts, calendar, and maps apps.
  • Feed readers can be used to subscribe to your website’s feeds (blog posts, bookmarks, checkins, etc).
  • You can even use your website (with Microformats) to sign into other websites.”

Getting alerts from my website
Inspired by Marty’s post about receiving alerts from his website in his matrix chat, I got inspired to do the same for my site, only with Slack. I’ve been working on building Slack automation at my job this week, and I have a Slack group for my family (it’s barely ever used). So it was perfect timing to read Marty’s...
