we need more zines - bring them back too
"you can't see the label from inside the jar"
my domain is pfunk.co - I kept running into a problem of not writing so I made a 200 word constraint
I have an index link for tags, and a table of contents for posts so it is more librarian styled
see plunk.co/tag/assholes for my essay on rabbits knowing how to travel
so now I've shared, do I have to write again?
well, you have 2 weeks
closing tabs is very cathartic
I found that AngelList supports rel="me" links on the profile, so I added the link to https://angel.co/kevinmarks
but @angellist have an antipathy to open web, so the rel="me" crawler gets blocked by their site
My site bot.werd.io is now my self-hosted siri that represents me
- if you say "where are you" it gives you my last checkin
"what's new" gives my latest social media post - my bot represents me
there's a virtual representation of you thatI can ask things?
and if we all had one, they couldl talk to each other
if I had a bot that said "I will be busy then" that would be really useful
the idea is to create a self-hosted siri-esque thing that tells me what my friends have published publicly
the firts thing I want to make i letting anybody provide answers for the bot
where are the answers coming from now?
I have wired up a lot of services to answer questions already
"who are you" - ben's bot "I am the robot version of Ben"
I changed my site to have published dates set by default in seconds, rather than by hand
and to have a separate created date for when I started writing it
silo.pub is a name that kevin came up with so I implemented it - it shares your stuff to silos
I updated silo.pub to post images to endpoints, as @aaronpk asked for that
if you sign into silo.pub, you can then use that with quill.p3k.io or woodwind.xyz to post to your site
how do you make pooping OK? Unicorns and soft serve
I don't have code to share - I have help I need
I am publishing this book next week, and now I need to make a website from the essays
references are not listed in the back of the book - they are on the website with the glossary
the problem I need solved is where are the references live - how we keep them growing
the site is cultivatingflows.com - how do I link it
I can do linking - I have the glossary as a list of links now
Indiewebcamp Brighton was awesome - we had lots of talks and some interesting new demos https://indieweb.org/2016/Brighton
the direct messaging/ private webmentions resulted in a spec by @aaronpk for this
that's what a link shortener does, it makes your tweets smell. Why would you do that?
