Replied to Some thoughts on following #IndieWeb by Greg McVerryGreg McVerry (Quick Thoughts)
I have a follow page. It has two sections an h-feed of following posts, and then different collections which could be grouped by a tag or by channels in my reader.
I love the sound of this workflow Greg. Inspired by Chris Aldrich, I have been meaning to get back to my following page for a while now, just always find myself doing other things. Have you documented how you have set up the backend?

Greg, do you have any recommended resources for walking through the process of setting up your own instance?
Listened 2toPonder Episode 20: Digital Mindfulness Redux by Greg McVerryGreg McVerry
In this episode I continie @mrkndvs disucssion of what does digital mindullness mean. In the last step I foucsed too much on unplugging and Aaron cam back and asked what does it mean to be mindful when you stay online. 
Some great points here Greg. I particularly liked your rephrasing of digital mindfulness as ‘being mindful of the digital’. This was epitomised to me on the weekend in a post on mindfulness that seemed to lack any awareness of the underlying data inherent within platform capitalism.

I also agree about the finding the balance between the technology and the human. I have really enjoyed Douglas Rushkoff’s exploration of this area with the Team Human podcast. I look forward to reading the book too when it comes out.

I had to go back to my Nexus 5x when my Pixel 2 broke on a recent trip. When I replaced it (had to take Pixel 2 XL) realized nothing in pixel lined justified the $600 price increase from the Nexus line. Nexus 5X might be the last great phone
I really like Douglas Rushkoff’s point that the best mobile phone is the one you have. I still use my Nexus 6P and am happy with it.
Replied to Searching for my #IndieWeb WordPress Exit Plan by Greg McVerryGreg McVerry (jgregorymcverry.com)
I love WordPress, it helped me grow immensley. I just think the two of us finally need to say goodbye.
That is a really interesting reflection Greg. I have been told the hosting thing in the past too. I really don’t think that is it. I fear that I don’t pay as much attention to all my moving parts as I should. Guess they work enough for me.

I still find Twitter useful but I have to be more careful on it now, especially so I don’t get mired in some toxic thread. Being able to read the threads (comments) of people you do not follow is a feature that only produces more outrage, but that is what engages people and sells advertising.

I submitted my response to Greg McVerry’s questions on Flipgrid:

  • Where do you get your Open Pedagopy Fix?
  • How do you define-co-learning?
  • How does co-learning occur in your space?

I just felt that it was a little short, therefore decided to add a longer response here:

100% agree, I think we need to crowdsource a solution. Been seeing the same top list of education bloggers since the first list. Reduces thought, reinforces inequity. So many cool things happening in so many places by people who look like the rest of the world. Who else should I follow? #digped
Greg, I collected a number of lists here that might be worth looking at. Also, you can find my OPML here.
