This is still for articles only. I’m thinking about if/how to link my notes. I could use a series of notepad icons, but that got me wondering what the actual use-case is. With articles the title is shown so that might catch someone’s interest while scrolling the page. Who is going to be interested in clicking one of hundreds of notepad icons on the page, though, without any additional context?
@RELEVANTpodcast Loved hearing @EdwardorEddie on the show again, though was disappointed he didn’t get the outro audio clip.
Also am I missing it or did you not tweet about #658? I smell a @JesseCarey cover-up!
Another year is wrapping up (how?!), so time for my #indieweb #newwwyear resolutions for my website.
By 2019-01-01 I would like to:
As a stretch goal, I would like to work on my channels more. I would like to set up one to feed into my micro.blog that excludes replies to non-micro.blog posts. I would like to start treating micro.blog as my primary, external social network instead of Twitter.
I’ve experimented with a reply-chain like that a couple times, e.g. https://gregorlove.com/2017/12/finished-reading-a-wrinkle-in/
I think a read post primarily indicates an action related to reading it. “I want to read this,” “I am currently reading this,” or “I finished reading this.” I think any of those could include an optional comment. The Goodreads status update UI is a good example of this: you can update your reading progress and include a comment each time. Once you’ve marked a book as finished, you have a separate UI to enter a review and a rating, independent of your previous status updates and comments.
I think the general indieweb workflow for this would be several posts:
Personally I don't think updating existing posts is a great idea in this workflow, but I'm open to ideas. These are my suggestions based on experience with Goodreads.
This isn’t a visually stunning update — in fact they look almost exactly the same — but I was able to simplify the HTML quite a bit. Previously, I was using some conditionals in the templates to show different HTML+CSS class names in order vertically center “one-line” responses like “John Doe mentioned this.” Using CSS Grid with Flexbox as a fallback made the HTML and CSS more straightforward. I am looking forward to doing more with CSS Grid. I hope to get to the point I can remove the Skeleton CSS framework.
I also split out sections for RSPVs and Other Responses on my event posts.
I remember looking up the first Mission: Impossible movie site and loving the MIDI theme it played. I also quickly discovered NetCentral web chat and went there regularly.
The title of D'Souza’s film is also a reference to the white supremacist film, The Birth of a Nation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Birth_of_a_Nation
Appreciate you touching on this scoundrel. I think he’s dangerous. His ahistorical books and films serve as apologia for rising fascism.
