We fundamentally disagree about social media being “the internet.”

Hah. This guy replied (then immediately blocked me):

We are only talking about social media, and we fundamentally agree that that usage was literal. But thanks for showing you can't back up anything you said and provide alternate social media, or any news media forum, to match those

Burton Fisher's tweet

So Glenn’s usage wasn’t literal at first, then it was literal. Also, those were their goal posts, not mine. They wanted me to back up things I didn’t say.

Their initial reply didn’t seem to have that much animosity, so I presumed good faith. I guess this is another lesson in determining when something is worth replying to or not.

Your disagreeing is irrelevant, and you're wrong about monopolies, too, as they make up over 95% of the world's social media. So, it's naïve to think he will have near the same voice, he was just trying to be social, or that Glenn was being literal when he said "vaporized". SMH

We fundamentally disagree about social media being “the internet.” I didn’t say he will have the same voice or was just trying to be social. I was responding to your context of the subset “social platforms.” I don’t think anyone is guaranteed an audience (or the same audience size), especially when relying on other people’s “free” services.

To be clear, I take issue with companies consulting the government about removing content. I’m also no fan of Facebook, which is one reason I promote the indieweb. In the context of the actual internet, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to say “vaporizing” was a bit hyperbolic. I guess you disagree based on the SMH. Not that your disagreement is relevant. ;]

Facebook and Twitter are absolutely the internet when it comes to social platforms, so those sites creating monopolies assisted by the government do shut down peoples voices when they kick them off. To think otherwise is willful naivete

I disagree and find this hyperbolic, especially about “monopoly.” There are many alternatives to being social online. It’s naive to think AJ is now “vaporized from the internet.”

Good @mtaibbi article on the dangers of Silicon Valley giants being able to unite to vaporize people from the internet, and the irrationality of cheering for it simply because you happen to hate their first target https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-features/facebook-censor-alex-jones-705766/

Facebook is not “the internet.”

.@nprgreene On @UpFirst, “mostly uneventful” is a weird descriptor for the Portland police seriously wounding by shooting grenades into the anti-racist crowd. They would have killed a person if not for their helmet. @rachelnpr @nprinskeep @noelking

@gRegorLove, you know when you share a link on Twitter and it shows a photo and turns that into a link to the original post. I want my blog post links to do that. How? Can you help?

Those are called Twitter Cards. I don't have a specific WordPress plugin recommendation to add that; there are probably several. Twitter has a Card validator so you can confirm if the plugin's working: https://cards-dev.twitter.com/validator

Awesome! How did this event go? If this is a recurring event, I’d like to include it in our list of events at https://indieweb.org/events. Also, is there an organizer we can list?

oops missed this! I'm near Burbank, Anaheim is no problem to get to from here.

Cool! Any recommendations? I’m an omnivore and don’t mind vegetarian/vegan.

Ohhhh, is this for people who are still making standalone websites? I like the sound of that…

It’s for everybody. :] But yes, webmentions were developed in the indieweb community and a lot of our personal sites support it so we can interact between our sites.

https://alistapart.com/article/webmentions-enabling-better-communication-on-the-internet wait, this has been a thing for over a year and a half?? how do I miss out on all these things for so long

I’m biased, but the indieweb chat is a good place to keep up with things people are doing on their personal sites and get inspired! https://indieweb.org/discuss


@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?
