Status as a Service - Eugene Wei

A very interesting article by @eugenewei about social capital and how social networks tap into our need to compete and feel somewhat better than the rest.

We are now in late-stage performative Twitter, where nearly every tweet is hungry as hell for favorites and retweets, and everyone is a trained pundit or comedian. It's hot takes and cool proverbs all the way down. The harmless status update Twitter was a less thirsty scene but also not much of a business (…)
a social network should continue to prioritize distribution for the best content, whatever the definition of ...

Can “Indie” Social Media Save Us? – Cal Newport, The New Yorker

A nice article about the IndieWeb, published on a paywalled site ("you have three articles left this month") 🤷🏼‍♂️. I find it a bit too focussed on servers and social media platforms, but with the right angle about 'engineered adictiveness'.


(…) a loose collective of developers and techno-utopians that calls itself the IndieWeb has been creating another alternative. The movement’s affiliates are developing their own social-media platforms, which they say will preserve what’s good about social media while jettisoning what’s bad. They hope to rebuild social media according to principles that are less corporate and more humane.

It is amazing to have these webmentions flying in. All. Different. Kinds. A bookmark, in this case (I'm not sure if my site will display this correct, but the mention came in) - thank you!
Man, there's so much I want to do right now in the underbelly of my site... stoked.

Southpaths unite! ;-) Thanks for the repost, Jonas. (and a reminder to myself to add post images to videos), hehe.

Maybe it's just me, but there was a special mood in the crowd this time. More cheering when speakers entered the stage. More clapping after each talk. I don't really know. Maybe I'm just projecting here.

No you're not. There were several moments were I had tears in my eyes. Coming out of nowhere, but it hit me, hard. A feeling of belonging. I felt cheesy and open at the same time.

I am very happy to have you/your site back in my bubble, Bastian. And thanks for all the hard work with Kirby, and yes the irony is not lost on me that I write this thanks thru my WordPress install.

Watch this. Understand this.

Testing a suddenly failing webmention implemention in WordPress 5.2.

For me the past felt like people defined the Internet. Today brands define the same thing I used to like.

And adding to that, people trying harder than ever to become their own brands wherever you look, while the behemoths of capitalism, the brands and their marketing, try so hard to stage as persons, friends even.

I already miss the small but always meaningful exchanges we have when we meet in person. *hug

For the ninth year I attended this great small conference about Web, Design and going beyond. Here are some notes and thoughts. Maybe I polish it later, but I want to get this out of my head.

These moments stuck with me - which does not mean that any talk that is not mentioned here didn't. This conference's iteration was very very very good, there was not one talk that wasn't great. All killers, no fillers. This here is just a first .brain { overflow: visible;}:
