Replied to πŸ”– Most Likely to Succeed: Preparing Our Kids for the Innovation Era by Tony Wagner and Ted Dintersmith by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
Bookmarked Most Likely to Succeed: Preparing Our Kids for the Innovation Era by Tony Wagner, Ted Dintersmith (Scribner) From two leading experts in education and entrepreneurship, an urgent call for the radical re-imagining of American education so that we better equip students for the realities of the future.
Chris, not sure if you are interested, but Benjamin Doxtdator wrote what I thought was an intriguing review of Most Likely to Succeed. Thought I’d share.
Replied to πŸ‘“ The Web We Need to Give Students | BRIGHT Magazine by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
Read The Web We Need to Give Students by Audrey Watters (BRIGHT Magazine) β€œGiving students their own digital domain is a radical act. It gives them the ability to work on the Web and with the Web.”
I must admit, I hadn’t read that post before. However, I did enjoy her book on the importance of domains though. I think that there are many cross overs between a Domain of One’s Own and the #IndieWeb.
Replied to Setting up WordPress for IndieWeb use by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
This was a really helpful walk-through Chris. I agree with your point in the IndieWeb podcast that it could be compressed into half an hour, but I always thought that was the point of adjusting the playback speeds?

I just had a few thoughts / questions while watching / listening:

    I never realised that I could add all my Rel=Me links within my profile, does that mean that I do not have to go through all the rigmarole of adding them to my ‘child theme’? That definitely makes it a lot easier to setup.
    I am really interested in modifying / developing a custom post kind, but what happens when David Shanske updates the plugin? How do I set up to allow for updates and customisation? Is this some sort of ‘child theme’?
    I wonder if it were possible (maybe in the IndieWeb multisite or something) to customise the ‘Welcome’ box when you first start WordPress? Imagine if the information that is detailed in the IndieWeb plugin area could be placed there, front and centre?

I must admit, I am still getting my head around all the Micropub stuff. This discussion involving David Shanske and Chris Aldrich was helpful. Although I still have questions, it helped with making a bit more sense of Aaron Parecki’s IndieWeb Reader.

Watched The Circle (2017) from STX Entertainment https://i0.wp.com/a.ltrbxd.com/resized/sm/upload/mo/zt/9r/l2/bQVqd5rWrx5GbXhJNuvKy4Viz6j-0-150-0-225-crop.jpg?w=840&ssl=1 Directed by James Ponsoldt.

I was disappointed with the movie too. I highly recommend the book. It really builds things up gradually, whereas the film rushes straight to the point and fails to set a deep foundation.

Replied to WordPress >> Facebook by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
I’m not sure why it didn’t exist before, but given the events of the past month I’m utterly shocked that neither WordPress, Automattic, nor the community have built an importer to allow people to easily put their Facebook data export into a WordPress website.
I have been wondering the same thing lately. Other than Jonathon Lacour’s work, I have not found many examples.
Replied to πŸ‘“ Site Building with WordPress and Elementor | Throw Out The Manual by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
I am curious how some of these site builders will do with the upcoming release of Gutenberg, however.
Chris, I had the same thought while reading Tim’s post. It will be interesting to see the impact of Gutenberg.
Replied to Reply to Chris Jones on Twitter by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)
I like @jgmac1106's general idea, but having less overhead to manage and administer appealed to me a lot. Here's some thoughts on what I ended up doing
I have developed a few sites over the years, although not as many as Greg. I have since compressed a number of these into two sites:
Read Write Respond: My main site, with my longer posts
Collect Read Write: My collection from the web
I also use my second site to POSSE.
I haven’t gone to the degree of guiding people as Chris has, but it all there hidden in the code if people want to find it.
If you have any further questions, let me know.

Chris, wondering if you could provide clarification on his /check endpoint. I am still learning that side of things (still haven’t dived into WebSub side of things.)
