Thanks Aaron for your mention of my wheat and bread podcasts. You raise an interesting question about aboriginal bread in Australia. I've listened to a podcast with Bruce Pascoe and read a general piece that was awfully muddled, but I have not read his book. I have no reason not to take his claims at face value, although I also think that the freight he is adding to those claims owes as much to the general status and recent past history of aboriginal people in Australia as it does to archaeology. I will certainly be including something in the book I am working on.
Chris Aldrich's discussion of the rewarding discovery that a friend has read something that you are reading, before you see it in their feed, is spot on. It is fun. And it reminds me of two things. The most important is that I really need to get to grips with my tags, both in Zettelkasten and, perhaps even more importantly, in Pinboard.
The whole business of bookmarking, storing copies, highlighting and annotating remains a source of confusion for me. There are just too many moving parts. I quite like Chris' suggestion of making it a topic at a future IndieWeb Camp. I've got two projects on the go, either of which could be my thing in Nürnberg in a couple of weeks.
I could extract quote after quote from Colin Tudge's latest essay on agriculture, at http://
It's a great story. He told me how the UK started a trade war with France, which promptly shipped the good wines through Ireland. The Irish helped create the great wines of France. https://
Define "significant". Many, many people are very happily using microformats to interact with one another. Micro.blog is built on microformats. Not enough for you?
While he was worrying like a terrier at the word "content" I believe John Philpin wasn't giving "own" quite the same third-degree. If, as some say, possession is nine-tenths of the law, then all those various places where he stores his stuff, even temporarily, could be said in some sense to own it. I quite like that thing you see inside books, that "The Author asserts their moral rights ..." There's nothing to stop you stealing it (well, aside from the law, in some cases, for people with deep pockets) but at least you know it would be immoral to do so.
Tomorrow is apparently International Podcast Day. Naturally, I am spending today editing a podcast that will go out on Monday.
