Replied to Link Sharing through Tiny Tiny RSS (Throw Out The Manual)
When Google Reader kicked the bucket I used Fever for awhile but had concerns when the developer decided to stop focusing on it and looked around for an alternative. There are several hosted services out there like Feedly and NewsBlur that seem nice, but I liked the idea of something
I like the idea of writing notes within the application and publishing these. I feel that this is what is trying to be achieved with the micropub feed reader revolution. Personally, I have taken to this with my second blog designed to replace social bookmarking, such as Diigo. Although it is not as simply as Tiny, I like the ability to craft each post. I also like the nuance of Post Kinds.

Replied to Zeit Here, Zeit Now: Watching the WWW Wake Up to Container Hosting (bavatuesdays)

Yesterday’s episode was a 25 minute discussion about Now (which I keep calling Zeit Now because the domain is zeit.co/now) which is a hosting environment that makes it dead simple to host Docker containers on the web.

If Tony is four years ahead of Reclaim, I would hate to know how many years I am behind. I have tried to follow your Docker dives Jim, it kind of went over my head at the time. Is this container storage what Dave Winer means by an IndieWeb storage system?
Bookmarked 003: Land of 1000 SPLOTs (Reclaim Today)
In this episode of Reclaim Today we are joined by Alan Levine (better know as Cogdog online) to talk all things SPLOT (the simplest possible learning open tool thingy). But forget the acronym and focus on the opportunity because Reclaim is working closely with Alan and wants to work with others to build out a library of tools for educators and technologists working in and on the web.
Listened 001: Hello World! from Reclaim Today

In this inaugural episode of Reclaim Today we go full meta and discuss why we're starting this and what we hope to get out of it.

Enjoyed listening to the first episode, even if there is shame associated with podcasts. Even worse, I came upon it via Tim Owens’ post and used Huffduffer to capture it.
Replied to Fellowship of the SPLOT (bavatuesdays)
The idea is to try and get a series of these SPLOTs in cPanel dashboards across our shared hosting and institutional servers, not only get give folks access to these tools—although definitely that—but also in hopes people will see what’s possible and make their own SPLOTs that can in turn be shared back for others to use. In this way Reclaim could help provide a hub to distribute these “tiny teaching tools” (to misquote Tom Woodward).
I love Alan’s SPLOTs and the support Reclaim provides. I have used Big Picture to create my own ‘home’ page and supported someone in summarising their work. I think they offer so much potential.

I am wonder what place microformats play with all this? I have enjoyed following Greg McVerry’s effort to incorporate #IndieWeb values into his work with Higher Education. I must admit, with my ‘Sunday drive’ of a blog, I am still finding my way. Was just wondering.

Bookmarked Running a Jekyll Site on Reclaim Hosting by Tim Owens (Throw Out The Manual)
Python and Ruby are not languages I've played much in but I figured this was a perfect opportunity to see if I could install Jekyll and get it to run right inside my Reclaim Hosting account to remove some of the barriers to using it. And I'm happy to say I was successful! Here's how it works.
I have long wondered about Jekyll, in part inspired by Kin Lane. I like Tim Owens breakdown of how to use Reclaim Hosting to set this all up using a virtual environment. Now to find some more tinkering time.
Replied to Reclaim Video Artwork by Lauren Brumfield (labrumfield.com)
Tim had the brilliant idea to use this as part of our new splash page when someone signs up for a domain. Their newly registered domain could automatically generate on the tape when they refresh their page.
Lauren, I love the idea of having my own customised blank tape on my site, are you suggesting that you might make available an option to generate our own tape, like with Bryan’s other recent project?
