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.

Watch this. Understand this.

For quite a while now I really think we are at a crucial point in the history of the web.

Webmention Semantic Linkbacks Facepile Display Hickup solved

(or: a hurray for open source)

Wow, what a headline! :-))

There was a tiny issue with the display of "webmention" reactions in my theme that annoyed me a little bit: On older posts, the summary of that post (for example in archive view or search results) would show in the meta-info something like "23 reactions" when this post had received comments or webmentions from other sources, like reposts or likes. but on the detail view, only comments were shown and the ammount of (visible) reactions didn't match the number stated in the meta-info. I have activated a WordPress default feature ...

Webmentions are Hot

Drüben bei A List Apart ist ein Artikel von Chris Aldrich erschienen, der sich mit Webmentions befasst.

Put simply, Webmention is a (now) standardized protocol that enables one website address (URL) to notify another website address that the former contains a reference to the latter. It also allows the latter to verify the authenticity of the reference and include its own corresponding reference in a reciprocal way.alistapart.com

Im Indieweblager ist Chris kein unbekannter, umso mehr hat mich gefreut, seinen Text in der angesehenen Webentwicklerpostille zu lesen. :-) #ischkennleud

The indieweb privacy challenge (webmentions, silo backfeeds, and the GDPR) - Sebastian Greger

A thorough article on the current challenges, technically and ethically, regarding the use of elsewhere published public data that can be regarded as 'personal data' in the GDPR/DSGVO sense. Data that will be published for example by pulling in likes, shares and comments posted on Twitter here in my blog, as 'reactions' alongside with 'real' comments on my posts.

As Sebastian writes

Just the fact that I can aggregate a “facepile” showcasing everybody who clicked “like” on a tweet of mine does not mean that my motivations for doing so are more important than their right to stay in control

Stell’ Dir vor, Du löschst sieben Jahre Inhalt und keiner merkts

Wisst Ihr was interessant ist? Ich habe vor gut zwei, drei Wochen meine kompletten selbst erstellten Inhalte auf Facebook gelöscht*.
Alle Posts, Shares, Fotos etc; 7 Jahre Material.

Gestern mal in der Kohlenstoffwelt nachgefragt, von meinen ‘Freunden’ hat es niemand bemerkt.
In dem ganzen Gerausche kuckt eh niemand auf die Profile/Seiten, sondern nur auf das gerade im Moment in die Timeline gespülte Stück.

Deshalb ist es so schade, wenn Inhalte/Gedanken ausschliesslich in diesen Aufmerksamkeitsschredder geworfen werden, was leider die Mehrheit so macht.

Ich breche eine Lanze für die eigene Domain als Platz für den eigenen Kram. Und dann halt Inhalte in die ...

The Web began dying in 2014, here's how - André Staltz

It looks like nothing changed since 2014, but GOOG and FB now have direct influence over 70%+ of internet traffic.
(…) GOOG’s goal is to gather as much rich data as possible, and build AI. Their mission is to have an AI provide timely and personalized information to us, not specifically to have websites provide information.
(…) The Web and the internet have represented freedom: efficient and unsupervised exchange of information between people of all nations. In the Trinet, we will have even more vivid exchange of information between people, but we will sacrifice freedom. Many of us will wake

Putting the 'I' in Indieweb

It's about time for a write-up of the latest tweaks and developments on my site to get this note/status posting and syndicating over to twitter working, which is still a little bit messy, a mixture of plugins and self-made hacks.

There's still plenty to do, but slowly it is coming together:

- I am using normal WordPress posts, but with the custom post format of 'status' for the 'tweets'. Maybe I'll switch this to a custom post type, which will make excluding these posts from the 'normal' loop and rss feeds ...
