This Week in the IndieWeb Audio Edition • March 4th - 10th, 2017

Audio edition for This Week in the IndieWeb for March 3th - 10th, 2017.

Thanks to everyone for the feedback so far! In responding to a couple of listener requests, I slowed my speaking rate down for this week’s updates. However, because I am re-using some common clips, it sounds like I am speeding up and slowing down quite a bit. My apologies for any confusion this causes! I plan to re-record the common samples soon.

You can find all of my audio editions here.

Site updates: Syndication links

A common IndieWeb principle, after "Own Your Data" is Publish on your Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere .

In general, this means that you should make posts on your own site, then copy the post to silos like Twitter, Facebook, etc., to reach the folks in those communities. To complete the process, include links on your site from the original post out to the syndicated copies.

One fun reason to do this is that tools like brid.gy use syndication links in order to backfeed comments and reactions from silos like Facebook and Twitter to your own site.

I'd been collecting these links for a while and displaying them in a "hidden" way - so tools like bridgy could see them, but a human reading the page would not.

Yesterday I added a "See also:" section that includes links out to any syndicated copies of my posts on other sites.

AeroPress Wall Holder LE (Two Parts)

A nice wall-mountable organizer for your Aeropress parts.

I chopped the design AeroPress Wall Holder LE by jspiro into two parts in FlashPrint. This allowed the print to fit on the bed of my Flashforge Finder.

Here’s the updated STL file for printing: AeroPress_wall_holder-two-parts.stl.
