Take 1 on blackening spice rubbed, cold smoked tofu with red beans in the Instant Pot. Maybe less smoke next time. Also, I’ve cooked a metric ton of rice and this was the easiest, best batch of white rice ever.

IndieWeb on WordPress — Island in the Net

IndieWeb on WordPress — Island in the Net
A post on Island in the Net by
The first time I saw the result of the combination of Webmentions, Semantic Linkbacks, Bridgy and Post Kinds I was hooked. I wish I had discovered these plugins sooner. When I tweet out a link to a post and someone tweets a response to that post, the tweet is imported to my originating post. My tweet response to that tweet is also imported. I find that useful and just darn cool. There are a few challenges, however.

Khürt does a great job of sharing his experiences with WordPress and IndieWeb, and is an inspiration to continue working on the theme I’ve been toiling with the past year.

Curious why you think that. Content is still at the URL, a RSS feed is just one way to consume that content. Not sure how using a hosted microservice to generate that method diminishes the premise of owning one’s content.

Towards an IndieWeb Way of Life™ Public Profile

I have GitHub, Twitter, FB & Instagram profile pages. Each lend context to that platform. However my web presence is a sum of all of those. As I move more and more towards an IndieWeb Way of Life™ I wanted a a true public profile encapsulating all of the content and activity across those platforms and ones to come.

I struggled trying to have a blog where I talk about my 2 favorite topics, food and tech while initiating my web interactions on my personal site. There felt a disconnect. So over time I’ve evolved to believe I should have separate sites for these activities. My initial thought was to have separate sites for the tech talk and food talk, and use my original blog domain, miklb.com as the aggregate site. But then I picked up (again) michaelbishop.me and it dawned on me that truly should be my main public profile and social activity hub, and keep my original blog a blog.

So over the next few days I’ll be making the switch and originating all of my personal notes and replies on the personal domain, and strictly blogging on this site. There will be hiccups and broken bits as I make the change, but I’m excited about having a one true source of my public web activities and a profile page I have complete control over how it looks and feels, versus only have a few boxes I can add info to.

Christian Heilmann Web Truths: The web is better than any other platform as it is backwards compatible and fault tolerant

Web Truths: The web is better than any other platform as it is backwards compatible and fault tolerant | Christian Heilmann

The web is not in a good way. Sure, there is an artisinal, indie movement that creates great new and open ways to use it. But the mainstream web is terrible. It is bloated, boringly predictable and seems to try very hard to stay relevant whilst publishers get excited about snapchat and other, more ephemeral platforms.

A lot of us are working on making the UX better, especially in the WordPress arena for IndieWeb newcomers. But I agree more documentation would be great.

So a dude in my neighborhood who the police have talked to multipe times about the murders just posted the most bizarre “I’m not a serial killer” Facebook live video in the neighborhood group.

How’s your Friday going?
