@nicopolitan Whereabouts are you in LA? I’m going to a concert at Anaheim House of Blues this Saturday. If you’re not too far away, maybe we could grab a bite beforehand.

I was reminded of ICQ today and tried logging in. I remembered my ID and the password I used from the late ’90s. Good jorb, brain.

@thetwilightsown Hey Mark, I just got an email confirmation about the album shipping (awesome!) but unfortunately my address has changed. I replied to the email but wasn't sure if a human would see it. Should I email someone else?

Micropub properties for indiebookclub

Tantek and I were discussing the read-of and read-status properties and the process of standardizing them in the h-entry specification. I realized read-status may be an overly-specific property name, since the same concept might apply to listen, watch, and exercise posts. Since these are experimental properties, ideally they should be published with the x prefix: p-x-read-status. I noted this in the brainstorming for read posts.

The problem

I’m trying to decide if/how I should update the indiebookclub Micropub request to reflect this. I know of three Micropub servers processing both properties when publishing:

The WordPress Semantic Linkbacks plugin consumes the read-of property from webmentions to display a separate reading facepile.

The seemingly correct thing would be for indiebookclub to send these properties as x-read-status and x-read-of. My first reaction is: I don’t want to break the servers above (especially by changing it. My second reaction is: if I do change them now and eventually read properties get standardized, changing at that point will break servers a second time. Is it better to break things once or twice? I wonder if the “best” thing to do is leave the request as-is and only update it later, once the properties are standardized. This could have the negative effect of encouraging people to keep publishing read-status and read-of, giving the impression they’re standard.

A potential solution?

I could make different versions of the Micropub request and let users toggle them on their settings page. To prevent from breaking immediately, I could default users to the legacy version. Everyone else would default to v2. Whenever the properties are standardized, v3 would be setup and become the default.

This solution feels a bit unfriendly to Micropub server implementers, so I keep coming back to wondering if I should keep it as-is and only change when it’s standardized.

I feel a bit stuck, so I’m definitely open to suggestions. Help me, Micropub masters! :]

@planetvoss Just saw your girlfriend in Ant-Man and the Wasp. Better watch out; she’s getting friendly with Paul Rudd.

@judicialnetwork Why are you sending me spam text messages?

Ahh, I think I forgot the response lines. Was it “exclamation point” and then “MOVE, LADY!”?

Hi gee-Regor. I’m sorry to hear you’re feeling this way. I also know that you are not alone with these feelings. I think they’re completely normal and if there is anything I can do to help, let me know. Thank you for sharing how you’re feeling. I love your face.

Thanks, gee-FM. :]

Struggle is real, dude. I have days like that and I think it does help to put it out there, because then I get to tell you "You can do this, I believe in you." It ain't whining. We all need each other.

Thanks, friend. Part of me feels it’s a bit self-indulgent. Like, I realize I am privileged; what am I actually doing to make the world better?

I also realize that I’m not alone in these feelings and it can be good to share, so ultimately I decided to.

Feeling a mixture of futility about the state of the world, loneliness, and depression. I don't post about these feelings often but I thought I'd try.
