Replied to Integrating Annotations into a Static Blog (tomcritchlow.com)

Hypothesis doesn’t have a good concept of a site owner so there’s no way to get alerts for new annotations on my posts.

Tom, I think that I would use Hypothesis more if it better integrated with my site. This is something that Chris Aldrich and Ian O’Byrne have been exploring quite a bit lately.

It’s not exactly an implementation of Webmention, but I was interested to find that there’s a tool from Hypothes.is that will show you (all?) the annotations (and replies) on your website.

Thank you Chris for the reminder of this. I am pretty sure I have tinkered with it before, but now I have added a link in the menu of my site.

I really want to use Hypothesis more, but until there is an easier workflow I am just going to persist with my mishmash of Diigo and collecting on own site.

So it felt like a good time to take a quick peek at a few common design patterns and think about some ways forward.

Tom Critchlow takes a look at web-annotations, comparing Hypothesis, Genius and Google Docs. Another example of annotations not mentioned is Diigo. I still turn to Diigo, especially when capturing marginalia. Although I then store that in my own space.

Ideally they’d want to have webmentions work in two places. It would be great if they could send webmentions of annotations/highlights to the original page itself, so that the site owner is aware that their content is being marked up or used in this manner.

I am really intrigued by the work going on this space. I think that the addition of webmentions and micropub specifications would be a huge positive.

I really must dig in, as I can see this being a replacement for Diigo, which I have progressively moved away from this year. Although Press Forward might offer some of this functionality too.

Replied to Three examples of annotations, bookmarking, & sharing in my digital commonplace book (W. Ian O’Byrne)

For me, a breakthrough came when I posted a piece about Interviewing my digital domains. Chris Aldrich took the time to use Hypothesis to mark up my post and archive this all here. He then reflected on this use of highlights and marginalia. All of this had me thinking about opportunities to modify my process as detailed up above, to include Hypothesis to mark up and annotate posts, as opposed to just pulling quotes from the piece.

Thanks for sharing this Ian. I prefer Option 3 as it provides more options.
Replied to Some thoughts on highlights and marginalia with examples by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)

Earlier today I created a read post with some highlights and marginalia related to a post by Ian O’Bryne. In addition to posting it and the data for my own purposes, I’m also did it as a manual test of sorts, particularly since it seemed apropos in reply to Ian’s particular post. I thought I’d take a stab at continuing to refine my work at owning and controlling my own highlights, notes, and annotations on the web. I suspect that being able to better support this will also help to bring more self-publishing and its benefits to the halls of academe.

Thank you so much for writing this post Chris. I was actually going to ask your process and will enjoy reading how you use RSS to curate it. I have always liked the idea of Hypothesis, but felt frustrated by the way that it shows up on my site randomly. I did find an aggregator, but wondered how it could be incorporated within comments like on Medium. This might also be another step for me in leaving Diigo, time will tell.

Not every source link warrants this treatment. When a citation refers to a specific context in a source, though, it’s really helpful to send the reader directly to that context. It can be time-consuming to follow a set of direct links to see cited passages in context. Why not collapse them into the article from which they are cited? That’s what HypothesisFootnotes does. The scattered contexts defined by a set of Hypothesis direct links are assembled into a package of footnotes within the article. Readers can still visit those contexts, of course, but since time is short and attention is scarce, it’s helpful to collapse them into an included summary.
