@cleverdevil Wish I was headed "home" for the weekend to talk @WordPress

 

Replied to a post on github.com :

@dshanske Always happy to give it a shot...

 

Replied to a post on github.com :

Yes, that tweak (https://github.com/kshaffer/hypothesis_aggregator/pull/7) does appear to work. It fixes both the fatal error and the fact that the curator name and appropriate URL wasn't working.

Great "marketing" work @xolotl! ;)

Sadly, I hadn't thought to check the PHP version, though mostly because my host apparently did a forced upgrade to 7.

You've just updated with another PR as I'm writing this. Does the new one fix the Currated by _____ piece? The intermediate code wasn't returning the user name or the correct URL for that user?

 
Liked Matt Gemmell's tweet: Thought: similar to /now pages🕘, it might be interesting to have a /using (?) page, listing your fave tools.
 

@mattgemmell Lifehacker & others have What We Use series. I like the idea of giving it a page in the menu. http://boffosocko.com/2015/08/03/what-i-use-august-2015/

 
Liked Screech, a simple client for posting audio content (such as podcasts) to your own site using Micropub, is now available publicly. You can check it out at https://screech.schmarty.net/.
 
 

@EddieHinkle I really like the short, but visual nature of the watch posts on your site! Very slick.

 

@EddieHinkle That particular example didn't have any commentary other than to say I listened to it. This example had more of my additional thoughts attached: http://boffosocko.com/2017/03/14/a-computer-learns-about-ingredients-and-recipes/

 

@EddieHinkle Clicking through will show that the text in the Twitter card is a quote of the original, in some part a reminder to me about what it was I had listened to. (It also serves as an advertisement for the thing itself--I like to promote good podcasts.) Most often these posts are just an emoji indicating the post type with the title and source of the thing I listened to. Occasionally I'll add some bit of a reply or commentary and bury the true post type into the Twitter Card along with a quote from the original. eg: https://twitter.com/ChrisAldrich/status/825206436305137664

Once in a rarer blue moon I'll throw a snippet of commentary into the Twitter card, but not often. See also https://indieweb.org/bookmark##How+to+POSSE for some thoughts on this. It's ever evolving. I'd love to hear your thoughts on improvement or alternate methods. I particularly like dumping additional data into the twitter cards when I can, though I'm aware that not all Twitter clients make use of them.

If you want to listen to what I'm listening to, you can subscribe to it via http://boffosocko.com/kind/listen/feed/. This feed format also works for other post types like "read", "like", "favorite", "photos", "checkins", "watches", etc.

 

Punch buggy!
