Replied to An Indieweb Podcast – Episode 3: Syndication by David ShanskeDavid Shanske (David Shanske)

Show notes

Another great listen David and Chris. I have taken to using Post Editor Buttons Fork plugin to add custom code, such as embedding audio and syndicating to #IndieNews. I am happy with any other solution, especially as I imagine Gutenberg may break my buttons?

I am really interested in your work in combining Bridgy Publish and Syndicated Links. I currently use SNAP for Twitter, Flickr and Diigo, Mastodon Autoposter and Jetpack for G+. (I could never get Bridgy Publish to work, but after Chris’ recent walkthrough, I think that I need to have a second look.) I find it really tedious to remember which ones to turn on and off for each post. I really like the idea of one space to control them all if that is what you are proposing.

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.

For anyone who comes here considering trying my setup, I’m always available to help. For those who are trying my plugins…they are still being refined, but feedback and contributions(of code) are appreciated.
Thank you David for the updated post. I really should write a similar post for prosperity. One question, what are your concerns with SNAP? I think it could be better, but is 10x better than Jetpack in regards to customisation?

GitHub is where people build software. More than 27 million people use GitHub to discover, fork, and contribute to over 80 million projects.
I think that this would be a useful addition. Although it is easy enough to use HTML tag;

It is just another thing to consider. Thinking about the ‘user’, anytime that such steps can be baked in is a good thing.

This is a test episode of An Indieweb Podcast(working title). In it, Chris Aldrich and I talk about a variety of Indieweb topics, with the theme of Considering the User, inspired by an article we were reading.

I really enjoyed this David and Chris. It was a wonderful insight into the #IndieWeb community. A couple of take-aways:

  1. The possibilities associated with Post-Kinds. I am wondering if instead of creating additional tags and categories that I need to craft my own kinds to differentiate between podcasts and music.
  2. I feel that the future lies in the community. I concur with Chris that I do not think that my place is coding the future. Instead I think that my contribution is in testing and trialing different additions. A point that I made in response to Eli Mellen.

If theis were to become a semi-regular occurance, it would be good to have a basic summary of discussions, as well as links to support further investigations.

Oh, and in regards to ‘impact’ (something that we love in the education world), it encouraged me to add GitHub to Bridgy. Thank you for the support and community as always.
