@Gargron quite a few journalists I know have signed up, but they aren't very active here @mmasnick @sarahjeong @sarahp @leo

@Gargron I'm in London tomorrow (Friday 11th) if you want to meet up. I'm around Kings Cross, but could tube somewhere else to meet

@Gargron well, you're very much invited to Homebrew Website Club London on the 9th, and I should be down for the 12th hwclondon.co.uk/meetups/201901

@Gargron when are you in London? Would love to meet up

“It’s about doing the one little thing you can do, even if it’s useless: planting seeds in the midst of the apocalypse, spitting on a wildfire, bailing out the ocean with a bucket. Individual action is almost always pointless. Hope and strength comes from our bonds with each other, from the actions we take as a community, holding hands in the dark.” festive.ninja/one-atom-of-just

we spent years doing all these weird tricks to have drop shadows in web pages only to get them built-in yet now have this decade of flat design. smdh.

oh oh reminder!

if you're in the #SanFrancisco / #BayArea area on Wed, January 9th, 2019; then you'll be able to see me talk about the #Fediverse and the #IndieWeb and aim to pull people in at wafflejs.com/!

Pull up if you can and let me know :)

Are we doing personal websites again because I never shut mine down so I'm accidentally way ahead on this trend.

RT @alicegoldfuss@twitter.com

Social groups, and therefore the Internet, go through cycles of localization and centralization.

We were localized (personal sites), we centralized (social media), and we are starting to localize again (slack channels, blogs).

occasionally, clicking through yet another half-arsed GDPR-mandated cookie management screen, i find myself thinking "the GDPR has buggered up the web"

then i catch myself.

no, it hasn't. the way companies have opted to respond to the GDPR is what's buggered up the web. they could have been nice and unobtrusive about it, but no, they decided that *every user in the EU* should suffer their protests at not being able to stow thousands of fragments of random shite on a whim all over their vict- sorry, users' computers.

@fluffy the tumblr domain gives me the oath interstitial before redirecting, but the custom domain doesn't

@fluffy did you avoid the Oath interstitial, or does that only show up in Europe?

I am told that switching your tumblr to a custom domain will make the Oath interstitial and the image flagging go away. so I made tumblelog.xyz/ to make this easy. Thing is , I don't have any flagged images on my tumblr, so I can't test this theory

@fluffy @xurnami there are always opaque rules, yes. I think being protocol primary is going to confuse people either way. Nascar is hints and aides memoire as to what wiil work.
Let me back up a bit. Putting rel=me on any profile pages you publish is a very good idea. Using rel=me links to find possible auth models you do understand fanning out from a url you have been given is also good. Maybe you'll be lucky and find an openid 1.0 provider that isn't dead yet.

@fluffy @xurnami having done the ui studies more than once, the "type in a url" ui confused people who weren't already bloggers. Webfinger was a massive and stupid dead end trying to solve this, yes.

@fluffy @xurnami a diminishing number though. You do end up making a Nascar ui so they realise which ones they can use.
Type in your URL ui is always a faff. And openid 1.0 did end up with Nascar ui to prompt people on what they could use.
If you have a set of friends who you want to give private access, start with the things they already have, and add Nascar buttons as you find you need them. Don't focus on one protocol to rule them all, as we have lost that battle. Except maybe email.

@fluffy @xurnami but you are going to end up with a Nascar ui for supported silos that way. Which is probably unavoidable.
