@jgmac1106 In digging a half-step further, I realize they actually put a content warning on a "Welcome" post to incoming users!


That is just a bit of an insane policy... How anti-DoOO can one get? It also seems like almost everything on that instance requires a CW regardless of what it is too. I'm completely on board with trying to make places "safe", but sometimes one can go a tad too far.


@davidsuculum I'd recommend coming at it from a pure math perspective if you're able, but otherwise Nakahara has always been a solid choice from a physicists' perspective.


@eay @_quinnO @waxpancake What's interesting, is that as I read Andy's thread, I could have as easily substituted @microdotblog for Mastodon & said much the same thing. While hooking your own site into it de novo may be a hurdle, for $5/mo the hosted version using your own domain is very simple.


@Johnicholas @noahzgordon Perhaps will provide ideas?
You could also try a POSSE strategy to stay in touch as you wean yourself away from silos as well:
Having read the Webmention article, I suspect you know my stance there.


@hankchizljaw There's also @withknown & @WordPress which also have webmention support for site-to-site communication in addition to all the other tech @keithjgrant mentioned. Next we just need the microsub solution widely distributed


@DavidWolfpaw @curtismchale @EricMann Have you followed some of the recent discussion around rel="alternate" to get around the issue of proper use of microformats in WordPress core and/or themes? This could really accelerate the uptake for a great many.


@finiteeyes Congratulations on what appears to be a new site. As you think about public/private and provide an example to others, I'm curious if your comments are avatar-less on purpose or if you've just not come across Gravatar yet?


@DaveTheSemitist Perhaps it's not your specific bailiwick, but do you have any colleagues with an opinion?


@jgmac1106 Let me know what works for you this week with the three hour time difference and I'll see if I can make it work anytime this week (besides Friday) between 11am-3:30p PST which might work out best for me.


Katie, perhaps better to share the permalink URL for your particular post as the content of your root domain may change over time? So this link instead:


Do you have one in the body of the post and another set as the Featured Image?


Katie, I think if you cut and paste all your text/html and paste it into the Text editor instead of the Visual Editor, it will all render properly when you re-save your post.


@outlandishjosh I could easily see @getpantheon building IndieWeb stacks with @WordPress +Plugins or @Drupal or @backdropcms + to expand this type of decentralized web interaction in a way similar to @microdotblog
