Twitter is apparently facing a high-level attack right now, but fortunately I run my own corner of the web and can Tweet to my heart’s content on my own website. Come join me! #IndieWeb

I ran across ProseMirror yesterday and my first thought was: I want this for writing and posting to my website! Not having the time or experience to set it up and integrate it myself, I wonder if there’s a public instance of it on the web that has Micropub integration? That would allow it to … Continue reading

I think I’ve finally decompressed a bit from IndieWebCamp West 2020 to try to actually absorb pieces of camp that went by for me in a blur. Fortunately all the big pieces were recorded and documented so well I can re-live most of it from start to finish. Thanks again Jacky for such a great … Continue reading

#MyHighlights from “The Top 3 Most Effective Ways to Take Notes While Reading” via @UseHighlights fs.blog/2013/11/taking… “At the end of each chapter write a few bullet points that summarize what you’ve read and make it personal if you can — that is, apply it to something in your life. Also, note any unanswered questions. When … Continue reading

Learning Paths Annotations and Highlights to One’s Website Using ThreadReaderApp

Some small pieces, loosely joined for owning one’s highlights online. I ran across a Chrome extension for highlights, annotations, and tagging tonight. It’s called Learning Paths. It works roughly as advertised for creating and saving highlights and annotations online. With a social silo log in process (I didn’t see an email login option), you’ve quickly … Continue reading Learning Paths Annotations and Highlights to One’s Website Using ThreadReaderApp

Theory on Cultural Changes with Respect to Mnemonics and the Ten Commandments in Ancient Near Eastern Cultures and specifically within Judaism

And God spoke: “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself an idol of any kind or an image of anything in the heavens above, on the earth beneath, or in the waters below. –Exodus … Continue reading Theory on Cultural Changes with Respect to Mnemonics and the Ten Commandments in Ancient Near Eastern Cultures and specifically within Judaism

Tracy, you’re not shouting into the void. If you’re interested, a few of us are hosting a free pop-up session that will cover that issue (and a lot more) in just a few weeks: Getting Started with WordPress, an IndieWebCamp Pop-up Session. Also happy to discuss it at any of the upcoming Homebrew Website Club … Continue reading

Posting an event and RSVPing to it at the same time

Yesterday I had created an event post for an upcoming DoOO Meetup I’m hosting and syndicated a copy to Meetable. The sad, but predictable, result was a webmention being displayed on Meetable that duplicated all of the details including all of the invitations. This felt annoying to me, and I simultaneously thought that as the … Continue reading Posting an event and RSVPing to it at the same time

I’ve met David several times at local events including Innovate Pasadena‘s excellent Friday Morning Coffee Meetup. It was great to see his article on the front page of the Pasadena Outlook (though I’d have put it above the fold) this morning. I was saddened not to find it on the Outlook’s website, but was glad … Continue reading

Rating: ★★★   Definitely not as good as the original book. Evie cried her way through the second half, but stuck it out like a champ.

Humans are good at categorization, and here is some solid proof. This is too awesome.

Rating: ★★★½   Not my first choice for a birthday movie, but well worth the watch. Theron was phenomenal in this and I frequently forgot it was her. A generally stunning cast here.   Uncomfortable in portions, but none of the miscreants really got their due. It seems sad that he ultimately died without really … Continue reading

Okay, it’s been far too long since I had to decommission my original Little Free Library. So for my birthday today I’ve ordered a new library. It’ll be about two weeks and we’ll be back in business! I’ve been tempted to build or up-cycle something like I did last time, but I also wanted to … Continue reading

Support for cycling in icon set

I only noticed because I actually went to post something while cycling around the neighborhood, but you seem to be missing a cycling option and a bicycle icon. The only other edge cases I can immediately think of are scooter, roller skates, tractor, skateboard, gondola, and horse drawn carriage. Though these may be harder to … Continue reading Support for cycling in icon set

Sarah, (@practicing_dsgn) there are a few Homebrew Website Clubs coming up on July 15, 22, and 29. Would you like to co-host one of them with me? We could also use another co-organizer to help get a Gardens & Streams II pop-up session up and running if you’re interested in helping out there.

Saturday, August 1, 2020 9:30 – 11:30am (America/Los_Angeles) This will be a broad-based introduction to the IndieWeb session specifically focused on using WordPress.

Again, the title comes from the very end of the episode.

Some of these episodes are titled with tidbits that happen within the last minute of the episode. This one’s title stands for “I Fucked Ted”.

Rating: ★★★★ Fascinating and with some interesting musical styles. Definitely well directed for the stage and reasonably well done for camera angles for a film version. King George totally stole the show playing the Greek chorus at the same time. This may require multiple viewings, and particularly with the closed captioning on in a second … Continue reading

If you use the Syndication Links plugin and configure it, Quill should be able to find your Twitter and Mastodon “endpoints” on your site and provide you with buttons to syndicate to them.  It looks like your theme has an extra u-photo on it that’s causing that avatar image to be sent to Twitter by … Continue reading

I do that! Try Micropub plugin + Syndication Links plugin + Quill or any of the other micropub clients that support posting notes and syndication endpoints. Reach out if you need help to get it set up. If you want to go crazy and thread your Twitter conversations, that’s possible too…

One of my favorite parts about the IndieWeb? All the smiling faces of the people who are participating in a people-first re-imagining of the Internet.

I’m planning on setting up up a regularly recurring Domain of One’s Own focused online meetup in the mold of Homebrew Website Clubs or WordPress meetups. People can ask questions, get help, collaborate, demo technology and ways they’re using their domains. I’m thinking monthly to start, but I’m curious what days of the week and … Continue reading

URL: https://www.kickscondor.com/ Author’s Twitter Handle: (optional)@kickscondor The fun feature I like most about this site is… the design aesthetic and the regular highlighting of quirky, fun, and off-the-beaten path content that it features. (It’s also very likely a great source for other whimsical and interesting websites and creators).
