me: working from home gives me the opportunity to focus on tasks free from the the distractions of a noisy office!

TROUT

TROUT

LET IT ALL OUT

THESE ARE THE FISH I CAN DO WITHOUT

SALMON

I’M TALKING TO YOU

SALMON

me: cool never mind

@adders I use chromecast for playback and only the phone assistant (which can be squeeze to talk rather than always listening). At least Google key you set what they recorded and delete it. Amazon doesn't do that.

@Gargron yes - it's part of the survey, and we built it in the social graph api. It helps when a site only has one link (eg github, Twitter)

@Gargron hi there. Does this men we now need the transitive rel=me to confirm that it's you?

@bram you can do this with ObjectiveC, but people don't

@cubicgarden it's an ongoing challenge. As soon as a standards body is seen as legislative rather than empirical, it starts to decay as would-be legislators show up and argue endlessly.

@cubicgarden “I decided that for the sake of our future generations we should document exactly how to process today’s documents, so that when they look back, they can still reimplement HTML browsers and get our data back”
Ian Hickson, 2007

@cubicgarden yes, the xhtml2 focus was a trigger for whatwg - they brought together the web app builders with the browser builders.
It's the legislation vs documentation split. W3C was full of people thinking that writing specs would make everyone implement them.
WhatWG documented how things worked in detail, and looked at how to improve them compatibly

@cubicgarden most of the things that you are praising predate the w3c.
What whatwg did was focus on compatibility and consistency first rather than architecture astronomy.

@yoz they don't even have panto. No wonder their idea of camp was so off

the most fun part about making websites is that u actually get to use hyperlinks. remember hyperlinks.

@dominicsayers @genmon also he chose Wiley so the name would be last in the credits (as they were listed alphabetically), displacing Dick Vosburgh

Pretty pleased I managed to have this entire conversation with @lsanger on Twitter using only my own website and tools! Never had to visit Twitter or use any Twitter apps! Our #indieweb tools have come a long way! #ownyourdata
