This is really cool. I always like neat SVG decorations
Nice! If you're looking for more IndieWeb places to syndicate, there's also IndieWeb.xzy, which is a reddit-like aggregator minus any handling of comments, and IndieForums, which is a forum that handles comments but everything is a syndicated post.
Wow, this little experiment became important enough to put the entire mission on hold. Sad that this is the beginning of its end, but if this impressive performance was the bare minimum, I imagine NASA will look into sending more advanced designs on future missions. I can't wait to see the next version.
lol. Not only is this an old post that i just replied to, but I replied to it 8 weeks ago when it was originally published. Sorry about that :)
Looks like it worked; it showed up in my feed reader! I agree with you about the weirdness of Micropub, but i guess that's what you get when a spec is developed alongside usage instead of designed beforehand.
I think Apple's policies are indefensible and hugely anti-competitive, so on one hand, I like that this sort of sticks it to them. But on the other hand, they'll use this as justification for how they're not anti-competitive despite being based on technology Microsoft has nearly a decade of experience in and spent millions of dollars building. This isn't a solution for every developer and forces them to rely on a different platform holder anyway.
I also don't like that this was an exception made just for Epic. Microsoft says they want to do this more, but starting with Epic feels very backroom deal. I'm hopeful, though, that Microsoft will expand this policy to all free-to-play games. Allowing consumers to stream these free-to-play games is very consumer friendly and gets them in the door to see how good Game Pass is.
I had the same confusion when I implemented Micropub on my site. It is a pretty weird API.
I always spell it 'wierd' and then have to fix it
I'd love to add push support to my social reader. Getting notifications for webmentions would be really nice. Sites where you kick off some kind of job/process could notify you about changes in status, sites for delivery tracking could notify you about status updates.
And I assume the user is always in control so they can determine which notifications they receive and the priority of each type of notification.
Whoa. This looks like a super cool technology. It's made out of vegetable waste, enables collecting solar energy even when not in direct sunlight, and the panels are flexible so they can be integrated in more than just flat windows. I'm really excited about these and how they could enable easy solar energy.
This is a test post to test Yarn.social receiving of webmentions
Each reason points to a deeper problem: our economy’s inability to value the right things.
This is a fascinating article about a low-tech solution to alleviate some of our climate problems, but with a depressing ending. Political leaders, technologists, and capitalism itself don't value technologies that aren't flashy or are developed and iterated on by native peoples.
It reminds me of my own field, web development, where people are drawn to highly engineered, flashy toolchains instead of working with the systems that is already present (browsers, HTML, DOM APIs, etc). I think the author is right that people want the solution to be separate from the base system. People like the idea of starting from scratch to try to control all the variables, instead of working around issues with creative solutions.
