@dgold if you are in IndieWeb IRC, can you figure out what just happened? Every one left in a hurry. Something about *.net *.split

Odd. Encrypt.me seems unable to secure a connection on this free WiFi network at the airport. In which case, what’s the point?

About webmentions

2 min read

Webmentions are the glue that sticks all the bits in all the sites together.

That’s my one-liner about one of the core ideas about the , but it doesn’t actually tell you very much if you want to know how the glue works. I’ve kind of absorbed a moderately high-level abstraction over the past little while of playing with webmentions, but a friend asked for more:

Do you know of any diagrams that explain how this stuff works without all the … words that web communities seem to enjoy creating? I keep coming back to this topic every so often, and every time I return things just appear more complicated and broken than before …

I don’t think that last opinion is merited, but then I would say that. And right now I don’t have the time to write up my understanding. I’m pretty sure I saw something clear and to the point a little while back, but I’m blowed if I can find it now. So here are four pieces I have found.

These may not answer the question fully, but they are a start. And they might inspire me to write my own version, especially if I could have a synchronous discussion about it with my interlocuter.

Doing a little tidying up on my site and wondering whether there's a preferred font-awesome icon for micro-blog.

Oh bother. Newsblur.com is down. Now I'll have to think of something else to do while I procrastinate.

I tried posting from micro.blog (on ios) to my site, and all I got was an error message. Not easy to debug. So now I’m trying from the OSX app. Sorry if I disturbed anyone.

I see @cygnoir has just asked Samuel Clay to add sharing to micro.blog to Newsblur. It would be even better to support any site with Micropub. That would be so worthwhile an addition to a great feed reader.

How to discourage enterprise in the English countryside

I have only seen one side of Nick Snelgar's dispute with his local planning authority but I have no reason to doubt what I've seen there. To me it seems indisputable that, no matter what politicians like Michael Gove may say, there is no real desire to allow small farmers to reform the farming and food landscape in England.
