  2. Trees on either side of a view of the East Bay, overcast sky, looking down from Mount Olympus.🌲🏙🌳 There’s a Mount Olympus in San Francisco, quite unobvious, hard to spot from a distance, even if you’re looking for it. You have to run/hike up to it, and then you might catch a view of the East Bay, south of Oakland. Yesterday’s day 2 run became an errand run, cut short. Still made it up to Olympus, still finished another 30+ mile week.

Bryan, Tantek, and Krissi standing in front of a sign to the start of the Skyline to Sea trail, with a forest behind them.Light purple to blue sky above horizontal streaks of cotton candy pink and orange clouds above distant trees, a low fog, and mountains, driving down highway 280 with very few cars on the road.Mottled gray white clouds over a thin orange band on the horizon above the distant ocean, above distant dark green hills, with brown to light green hills in the foreground, a few dark green trees to the left and right.Dense tall trees, only their trunks visible on either side of a narrow but smooth dirt trail.Tantek running on a trail behind Krissi, with spotty green grasses and bushes on either side, a few low hung tree branches on either side.Healthy tree trunks surrounding a few long ago burned out and cut-off thicker trunks, now covered in moss, their split levels making them appear like big green chairs.Large redwood trees, their trunks visible on either side of Tantek running on the trail.Joined pals @BryanTing and birthday lady @theRunetarian yesterday for the first ~16 miles of her 30 on the Skyline to Sea trail run. My first time on this trail, by the time we reached Big Basin, I felt both physically spent (on only 4hrs of sleep), and mentally exhausted from nearly five hours of navigating a new-to-me somewhat technical nearly all single-track trail. Learning from practice, finding limits from experience.

    Bryan drove us down from San Francisco before dawn, to quite a dramatic sunrise and low fog on 280(2). We started ~8:15 under thick clouds and ambient white light in a quiet forest(1 📷 @theRunetarian #selfie). Two miles in we emerged onto a ridge (where there was a convenient bathroom), the mottled white gray clouds stretching out overhead to the ocean, contrasted by the fresh green grass from recent rains(3).

    The scenery was beautiful the entire way, the #trails narrow, the trees tall(4). Sometimes the #trail would cut through a small clearing(5 📷 @BryanTing). Occasionally we’d see an odd or interesting site, like abandoned old cars from the road above, or old burned out tree trunks, cut-off and covered in green moss like giant chairs(6).

    The #trees got larger, thicker, as we approached and finally reached Big Basin park, surrounded by redwoods(7 📷 @BryanTing). A bit more #running around and I hit 19 miles. 30km would have to do for today.

    Six years ago today I finally overcame enough fear and impostor syndrome to show up to NPSF Friday hills on Church street adjacent to Dolores Park (after having gone to NPSF Wednesdays for almost 3 months at the time). Still here.

  7. Panoramic view of storm clouds to the South, an opening of nearly clear sky with clouds on the horizon and one big cloud nearer, and more storm clouds to the North above the Pacific Ocean at Ocean Beach with waves crashing and leaving behind a wet reflection on the sand of the same clouds but darker and textured with ripples as the water recedes back to the ocean.Thick clouds above a thin band of orange horizon backlighting some strands of rain falling from the clouds to the ocean, behind small crashing waves and a wet smooth sandy beach, a few birds on the sand looking for eats.Dark storm clouds with just a few gaps behind them where the light sky shined down, showing a reflecting on wet sand in front the waves at Ocean Beach.Dramatic storm cloud shedding some rain, distant open twilight sky with clouds lined with an orange tinge from the distant sunset, nearer spiky cloud dark underneath, all reflected by the wet smooth sand in front of Ocean Beach waves.Mostly clear twilight sky overhead, with a prominent spiky cloud in the middle, chaotic clouds in the distance hugging the horizon with the ocean, calm waves crashing, behind wet sand reflecting the spiky cloud and the clear sky.🌦🌊 Dramatic clouds last night at Ocean Beach. No sign of the setting sun, except a distant orange glow under the clouds above the ocean, lighting up strands of rain returning to the sea(2). Dark clouds hung over the beach, cracks in the distance letting in the light(3).

    Just six minutes later the dark clouds had passed overhead, rain clouds to either side, revealing a twilight sky and dramatic clouds, a few with orange tinges from the distant sunset(4). Minutes afterwards the sky was even brighter(5).

    As the sky cleared overhead, I happened to be standing in between rain clouds coming to shore(1).

    Right place, right time. A moment of beautiful sky between rain clouds, before darkness.

Pink orange small clouds behind a backlit palm tree above an orange glow behind tall distant buildings on the horizon, Alta Plaza park path in the foreground.Clear blue sky above scattered light gray clouds above an orange glowing horizon behind city buildings, backlighting a palm tree in Alta Plaza park, still in the dark.Dark sky above the first lights of dawn, backlighting a palmtree, faint orange glow on the horizon behind city buildings with their lights on.🌴🌆 Early this morning @Nov_Project_SF, one thought came to mind: kindness. To continuously cultivate kindness towards others, towards yourself. To err on the side of kindness.

    Sometimes self-kindness requires setting boundaries for your own mental health, kindness does not mean you are required to interact with everyone.

    Sometimes kindness will require emotional labor. Recognizing that enables you to choose when to invest that labor, when you have the capacity. To prioritize those important to you, deserving, and those less fortunate, less privileged.

    Practice kindness as its own ends, without expectations.

    If a kind act or word doesn’t seem welcome, for any reason, practice kindness by giving space (and time), as necessary.

    The sky was mostly clear that morning, just a few cotton cotton candy clouds. The sun is rising earlier each day, almost up by the time we finished our workout(1). The horizon glowed orange the whole time, when the sky was blueshifting(2), after dawn’s first light(3).

  11. New issue on GitHub project “standards-positions”

    Mozilla Standards: Consider adding a `mixed` status

    In some evaluations, we determine that a standard or feature may have some merit, or be mostly good, but discover that it does have some harmful aspects. Since we think the problem being solved is user-relevant, and perhaps may even agree with the approach, we avoid marking these as "harmful", and end-up averaging down to "worth prototyping" (i.e. with actual concerning caveats, beyond just clarification or bugs that need fixing), or "non-harmful".

    For example, I would have advocated (and I believe we would have stated) in https://github.com/mozilla/standards-positions/issues/194#issuecomment-568581041 that that spec is "mixed" rather than just "non-harmful".

    Per @bholley’s comment in 242, ironically, averaging "worth prototyping" (or "non-harmful") and "harmful" down to "non-harmful" seems itself potentially harmful due to the risk of the position being misconstrued as being more positive than our evaluation actually states in prose.

    Proposal: add "mixed" with a description like:

    Our evaluation of this specification is mixed, meaning while we may otherwise consider the majority of this work neutral (non-harmful) or positive (worth prototyping, important), we have identified specific actually harmful aspects (beyond just bugs or underspecified aspects that need clarification), that require resolution before we can place a neutral or positive summary status on it. If there are many harmful aspects that seem endemic to the design or approach despite a specification’s good intentions / use-cases, then "harmful" should be used as the status. "mixed" does not mean just any mix of statuses, but rather specifically a mix of "harmful" and another status.

  12. Light blue dawn sky above backlit trees just above the entrance to Kezar Track, as viewed from behind the starting area on the track, looking forward, and the somewhat wet track curving to the left.Light blue sky with clouds on the distant horizon above trees and a building on the upper edge of Kezar Stadium, as viewed from the side of the track near the starting area with track lane numbers 1 through 9 visible on the wet track, which curves toward the left, just passed a soccer goal on the field in the middle.Wet track, tired legs. Some days just don’t feel right. Not bad or painful, rather, a bit off, or tired, or a struggle. That’s ok. There are many options, push through, or distract yourself with something else, or slow down (maybe pause) and listen, to your body, your mind, yourself, and understand a bit more. Each has uses and situations where it works better than the others.

    Made it outside by 7 this morning to run to track. A little colder than usual, it felt like a bit of a struggle to get moving, and warm-up on the way to the track. Saw (and high-fived) #NPSF running pal Nat as she was leaving. Missed the usual track crew.

    Did a few warm-up exercises to loosen my legs and then an easy warm-up lap. Legs felt cold, sluggish, and still tired from the weekend. Joints were ok, though it took more effort than usual to balance & align knees and ankles. Decided to keep it slow to focus on form and steady rhythm. Rested and stretched a bit. Ran one more lap, slightly faster, which felt good, though I could feel my form slipping as I sped up, despite being much slower than my usual track laps.

    Today was not the day for speedwork, and that’s ok. Ran/walked it to 3ish miles on a roundabout way home. Considered hurrying to make it to a yoga class and decided instead to quiet my mind, and practice some slower yoga by myself to get a better sense of how my joints would respond to different movements.

    I think the key is to keep moving, keep showing up, and keep being mindful. Decide in the moment, what feels best for that moment, for you, your body, your mind, your heart. Be honest with yourself without shame, and if others are involved communicate that too, assuming they want to know how you actually are, instead of, certainly much more than, any expectation(s) of how you should be.

  14. New issue on GitHub project “fragmention”

    Fragmentions should define hashbang handling and other common routing

    The Fragmention specification does not explicitly say anything about hashbang (#!) URLs or similar common (including legacy) single-page-app routing patterns, and it probably should, to minimize breakage, and provide a defined safe method for future single-page-app routing frameworks.

    First, Fragmention should explicitly forbid (with "MUST NOT" language) use of fragmentions that start with a "!" character, thus allowing for legacy hashbang (#!) routing URLs per old Google documentation like:

    Second, Fragmention should consider also similarly forbidding "#foo=32" type fragments of roughly variablename, equal sign '=', and numeric or string value, as was observed in routing as documented in https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2007/11/spiders-view-of-web-20.html

    These two carve-outs, especially the second, should allow sufficient routing flexibility for single-page-apps that won’t clash with explicit use of fragmentions.

    Optionally perhaps informally note in the specification that use of hashbangs should be avoided anyway per It's About The Hashbangs.

    We took a quick break to eat at the Parkside Snack Bar, and then started our hike/run back. At one of the viewing spots just before Cardiac the clouds were looking particularly beautifully chaotic(4). Returning to Cardiac Hill, the sky was fully overcast, and rain clouds were visible over the ocean, some already dumping onto the water(5).

    By the time we had climbed down and back out of Muir Woods and up to Panoramic Highway, the sky had cleared for us again, the sun warming us and lighting our way(6). We descended back down into Mill Valley, ran down the Dipsea steps to Old Mill Park, and finished where we started. 16 miles, not bad for a day two run.

    Context, he also said that while participating in-person at https://tantek.com/2019/303/e1/homebrew-website-club-sf and after he demonstrated the Planetary #scuttlebutt client he’s building.

I had just finished an early morning Vinyasa session @YogaFlowSF, in the main yoga room affectionately nicknamed the treehouse for its multipaned bay windows that bring in light sifted by evergreen trees just outside(2).

    When Charlotte started our 7:10am class it was still nearly dark outside, the streetlamps were off, and dawn’s light was still quite dim. Practicing yoga with others while the room slowly brightened with natural light was a new experience for me. I felt a growing sense of energy and presence, from myself, and even when I closed my eyes, from subtle sounds and air currents shaped by the class’s movements.

    While we don’t have access to Microsoft’s PoliCheck tool mentioned therein, we can at least use the results they came up with in their searches of Chrome source as a first level approximation of terms to search for. E.g.:

    • change "master"/"slave" to "writer"/"reader"

    Other terms may require manual inspection for context to evalute whether they are offensive or not. E.g.:

    • cracker
    • ho

Pre-dawn nearly clear dark blue sky above a few small clouds and an orange glowing horizon backlighting a circle of benches seen from a side view at Alta Plaza Park, the foreground lawn nearly completely unlitBlue to royal blue clear sky above two palm trees at the top of the stairs at Alta Plaza Park with a few clouds in the distance just above the orange to yellow glowing horizon backlighting San Francisco buildings, paths and lawns in the park barely distinghuishable.Three wide but thin wipsy cotton candy colored clouds streaking left to right across the dawn sky with a gradient from medium blue to light blue, yellow, an orange, above the tops of San Francisco buildings in the distance, a partially lit bench on a path and backlit palmtree in front.🌆🌴 Another beautiful morning @Nov_Project_SF. Watching the sky brighten and rotate colors is always inspiring, especially when #running & breaking a sweat. So many good #dawn views in #AltaPlazaPark, still finding new ones(1), though the two palmtrees near the top of the main steps(2) are still a fave. Novel cotton candy clouds(3) are a good reminder that every moment is unique, worth appreciating. There is no loop.

    Despite sleep interruptions, I felt a profound sense of open hearted optimism as I arrived at #AltaPlaza park (even a few minutes late). Warm feelings are still surfacing time to time, despite a diminishing sense of attachment to origins. Over the past month I chose to neither fight nor let go, rather to sit, accept, appreciate, and at times embrace them, even knowing or at least expecting that may prolong or delay healing.

    Today I learned the opposite may be true, as the feelings have evolved into a more general sensation rather than directed to or from a particular source, and this morning they were particularly pronounced. Some subsequent motivations have remained, like striving to show up as an even better version of myself. Not for (or no longer for) anyone in particular, rather for everyone and no one, as its own self-reinforcing outcome.

  25. Dark clouds with wisps of sky barely visible between them, one of them making a tilted V, over a yellow orange horizon from the recent sunset behind the Pacific Ocean, waves crashing, leaving a smooth wet sandy shore with a mirror image reflection of the bright horizon, and a negative space letter T from the reflected wisps of sky surrounded by dark cloudsWalk on the beach at sunset, another item crossed off a list. Cracks between dark clouds let the light in, painting single letters separated, mirror worlds apart, divided by yellow orange remnants of a sunset that was.

    Eight weeks ago we should have turned around at that sunset beach under dark clouds. Stopped to see the sun, walk the sand, and hold your hand.

  27. New issue on GitHub project “fragmention”

    Fragmentions should scroll to img alt text

    The Fragmention specification does not mention img element alt text as part of the text that it searches for matches, and I think it should because there are use-cases for it.

    Use-case 1: I want to reference the third image in this post with a fragmention, and figured the alt text would provide a nice way to do so.

    Use-case 2: A screen reader user is listening to a page, including the inline alt text from images, and decides to respond or otherwise comment on something they heard in the alt text, constructs a fragmention with some of that text and expects it to work like any other text phrase in the document with a fragmention.

    Use-case 3: A web image search crawler is indexing images on various websites and as part of displaying search results for an image, wants to link directly to a specific image on a page that happens to have alt text which matched the search terms of the search query. In order to link directly to that image, the search engine determines a several word phrase of that img’s alt text and uses it to construct a fragmention link which is then provided in the search result.

    In each of these cases, it makes sense for the user clicking on a fragmention link to be able to "scroll to" a specific image / that specific section of alt text, and thus the specification should both support that behavior and make it a MUST for interoperability and reliability.

    Beautiful day, mostly blue sky, brilliant #sunshine lighting up a clear sky(2). Ran up Fox trail to views of the Pacific Ocean among green Marin hills on either side of Tennessee Valley(1).

    Almost missed a pretty purple salamander on Coastal Fire road(3) on the way down toward Muir Beach with a mix of blue & green waters(4). It was quite muddy on the descent, thick, sticky mud which we had to carefully step through & around(5).

    The climb up Dias Ridge was quite a slog, alternating running and walking. Whitney waited for me at the top of the ridge line where we captured photos of dramatic clouds above and passing in front of Mount Tam(6 📷 Whitney). I looked back to take in one more view of the Pacific Ocean(7) before continuing eventually onto Miwok, down to Tennessee Valley and back to our start.

    Good to see and catch-up with co-workers. Picked up my Caltrain Go Pass. http://www.caltrain.com/Fares/tickettypes/GO_Pass.html

    Took the MUNI after, a new train, which had OUT OF SERVICE Clipper card readers(3) with the cryptic error message: “CD-Action..8% UD-176”. Zero web search results as of today:

    * DuckDuckGo: “No results.”: https://duckduckgo.com/html?q=%22CD%2DAction..8%25%20UD%2D176%22 or https://duckduckgo.com/html?q=%22CD%2DAction%22%20%22UD%2D176%22

    Curious. Though obviously “CD-Action” and “UD-176” are meaningless and bad UX. Who knows what company produced the software, or who wrote it, and what these mean. I doubt it’s open source. I’m not even sure where or who to ask. I feel like this kind of embedded software is getting sloppier, less reliable, more fragile. Any software running shared urban infrastructure should be open source, available for inspection by citizens.

  34. LEGO month calendar of January 2020A year and decade are arbitrary boundaries, yet this change feels different than others. Different from even a month ago. December went somewhat as expected, yet unexpectedly challenging in a couple of big ways.

    After one last big push of work, I was going to rest, reflect, and recover from the year. Instead, the stresses of unexpected home repairs emptied emotional reserves already drained from months of pushing hard, harming my judgment, undermining empathy, leading me to make more mistakes, and likely causing (or perhaps accelerating an inevitable) break. Recovery and regaining my footing became my focus.

    This month, year, and decade is still just beginning, and even if arbitrary, perhaps that beginning is an opportunity to refocus, keep giving myself and others time & space to heal, while rebuilding & strengthening in other ways.

    The shedding I mentioned last month, still in-progress. The #transformation, accelerating in other ways. #Growth from being outside my comfort zone has shifted into growth from recovery. Still embracing #loving (to others’s capacity to receive) & #friendships into this year.

    I haven’t run up Mt Tam in months, so the 84 minutes PR (personal record) felt good. My heart felt strong (not broken). I kept thinking of everyone I was grateful for this year, those I’ve known for years, and new friends I met in 2019. Love you all.

    We started early from the Tennessee Valley trailhead parking lot, ran up Marincello to beautiful views on Alta Trail of hills rising from the ocean haze(2) south of the Golden Gate. My favorite spot on Alta Trail is a little #Eucalyptus #forest near its south end. Serendipitously captured booming sunbeams with deep #blue arcs(3) filtered through the trees. I don’t know the optics but the effect was beautiful.

    Ran out to the SCA trail where it was so sunny and exposed it was hard to see when photographing, especially when #running. Emily and I traded off leading & following, I was able to get one backlit running shot(4). Emily took a backlit shot of me at the vista point a bit uphill from the SCA trail(5), before I took my own vista shot(1).

    She took a selfie of us on the hill(6), we continued the rest of our run catching up on so much each of us had experienced since we’d last seen each other many months ago.

And to yoga this morning, or so I thought, actually 30 min early(2).

    I knew the past 3 months would be intense, my time was blocked out for work(+travel+organizing+speaking) & ultra training (https://tantek.com/t53e1), and nothing else. Tiring time zone changes and long trail runs meant choosing sleep, missing some NPSF workouts, or being late. IndieWebCamp SF 12/7-8 was my last commitment of 3 months, and I barely had the energy for it after actively observing the TC39 standards meetings that week before. I had no reserve for setbacks (like my water heater breaking the night before I hosted Thanksgiving for family). Such packed time & focus seemingly invited an unexpected & intense arc of joy, a story for another time.

    Still making sense of that night after IndieWebCamp SF, despite managing to bake my first blueberry pie (https://tantek.com/t5451). Recovery since has been hard, both from being drained, and from needing to reflect on what I could have done better, to be sustainably better, instead of a crash & burn of sorts. A better friend, healer, and lover, in that order.

    For now I’m rebuilding, and small temporal victories are one sign of progress.

  44. New issue on GitHub project “fragmention”

    Fragmention spec assumes IDs cannot have spaces

    The Fragmention Syntax section states that an HTML ID cannot have whitespace, citing the HTML standard. However, a test case demonstrates that IDs with spaces are supported across browsers:

    data:text/html,<div style="height: 10000px"></div><div id="space here">I am linked to</div>#space here

    Whether or not this poses any practical problems remains to be seen, however the specification should at least explicitly acknowledge and state:

    1. What browsers implement today, even if outside the HTML standard, and
    2. How browsers would need to change that behavior in order for fragmentions to work as expected.

  49. New issue on GitHub project “fragmention”

    Fragmention spec: non-current syntax & semantics should move to an appendix

    There is a bunch of stuff in the Fragmention specification, e.g. the '##' stuff, that doesn't relate to the current proposal that should be moved to an appendix like Historical, or Alternatives considered. Such an appendix should be clearly separate so that it’s easier to tell which parts of the spec are necessary for current publishers and consuming code implementers, which are optional (if any), and which are purely informative background.

  50. I have repeatedly expressed to peers working on #IndieWeb #SocialWeb #SocialMedia #FederatedSocialWeb that tech/plumbing-centric framing of #dweb "Decentralized Web" "Distributed Web" is heavily problematic. Beyond MastoGab, there is now something much worse (not linking). I’ll follow up with a longer blog post (it’s been in my drafts for a while), explaining why, how we got here, and maybe some ways for how can we replace use of "Decentralized Web" or "Distributed Web" with something human-centric instead.

    @24ways (ht @KevinMarks): it’s not a “microbrowser” (already an alias for mobile browser^1) #xkcd386

    ^1 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/microbrowser

    Web searches also reveal that existing definition for “microbrowser”:

    E.g. all first page results on:

    @Google (which even shows a onebox definition for it!): https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=microbrowser

    It’s futile to attempt to redefine longstanding term/phrase like that.

    Always research what you think is a new term or phrase before attempting to define it.

    At a minimum do a couple of web searches and check @Wikipedia.

    To be fair, naming things is hard (https://tantek.com/t44u2).

    To be clear, it’s *good* to identify a thing or class of things that exists but isn’t named, and give it a name, so we can talk about it. Reminded me of @timoreilly’s talk at the 2013 Brooklyn Beta (https://tantek.com/t4SV1).

    Instead, when naming something, start with trying a name that is descriptive. E.g. as the @24ways article already mentions “link preview” as the canonical phrase for the thing that is generated and shown, it makes more sense to define “link preview agent” as:

    “a class of User-Agents that also visit website links, parse HTML and generate a [non-interactive, representative] user experience”

    And before this post, “link preview agent” had *zero* Duck Duck Go or relevant Google results for the actual phrase (just four in Google, two split by periods, and two adjacent text coincidences that are separated by page UI).

However you slept, get up (you can nap later). If it’s cold(ish) outside, add a layer (or two). If you’re late, stay after and do more. If you fall, get up and run harder. #JustShowUp. And keep showing up, especially for yourself.

    After we wrapped up IndieWebCamp SF, I went home, collected the ingredients from my cupboard, realized I was missing a couple, and picked them up from my local grocery store. Ingredients assembled(2), pie dish lined and #blueberries mixed(3), it didn’t take long to make(4), and place in the oven to bake(1).

    Thanks to a ride from a friend, the pie made it to the party intact(5), taking its place among others, surrounded by bakers, friends, and baker friends (6 📷 Andrew Garcia).

Tennessee Valley trail, large pool on the trail in the lower half reflecting the fence on the left, hills in the distance, bushes on the right, and clear blue sky above.Hundreds of birds perched on a single wire among several wires overhead with a blue sky above them and clouds on the horizon.The sun rising over a hill just to the south of Tennessee Valley beach, sunbeams illuminating the surf, with most of the beach on the shadow of the hill.Whitecaps and crashing waves under a blue sky at Tennessee Valley beach.Red rocky outcroppings rising out of the ocean and sand at Tennessee Valley beachBlue sky above, hills in the distance, bushes and brush at the edge of a green meadow with a few picnic tables off to the left, and trees off to the right at Haypress campground.🌄🏃🏻‍♂️ 3 months from today (2020-03-14) I am #running the #MUC50, my first 50 mile #trailrun, the hardest thing I’ve ever attempted. Today I returned to #SFRC, first time since back-to-back #ECSCA races a month ago. Ran to the #beach (3,4,5) & back, with a little detour to Haypress camp(6), with pal @VivekGowri and it felt great.

    Beautiful weather, birds flocked overhead and gathered all on one wire among several(2), and the ground was squishy from the recent rains, leaving a few reflective pools on the #trails (1). Today felt good & necessary for many reasons, physical, mental, emotional. Grateful for running with friends and the ideal running conditions.

    With today’s long-ish #run, I’m starting to focus on my #50miletraining for the Marin Ultra Challenge (http://insidetrail.com/calendar/marin-ultra-challenge/). Well outside my comfort zone, after I finished a 50k + half marathon (~46 miles in 2 days) without injury, and only sore feet to show for it, I feel 50 miles is within reach with dedicated training. The biggest challenge will be finishing it in under 14 hours.

    #Runner friends, this is your heads-up. Starting at about mile 30, I’m allowed pacers for the MUC 50. If you’d like to help me finish 50 miles by running with me for the last 20 miles please let me know. It’ll likely be a slow 20 miles, and some of it in the dark with headlamps. Think of it as an early evening fast-hike, with an opportunity to catch-up and talk about all the things you do when pushing your limits.

  61. Thanks to a quick tip and advice from @adactio, I was able to improve my offline support here @IndieWebCamp SF in the last 15 minutes!

    I started with the script for listing offline cache available pages from https://clearleft.com/offline, stripped it down a bit, and filtered for / or .html files.

    Now when you load my site when offline, you’ll see what pages you have cached and can view while offline!

  63. Stream of consciousness progression of emotional abilities, to develop, grow, and recognize in others.

    Internal
    1 emotional self-awareness
    2 "" self-sufficiency
    3 "" self-resilience

    External
    1 emotional listening
    2 "" boundaries
    3 "" communication

    More:

    There is a progression of emotional abilities, from internal to external, and within each, abilities that progressively build on each other.

    Internal emotional abilities

    1. emotional self-awareness — becoming aware of your own emotions as they’re happening, growing understanding of immediate feelings and deeper perhaps longer term feelings and emotional states behind them
    2. emotional self-sufficiency — ability to take care of your own emotional wellbeing and state in normal conditions
    3. emotional self-resilience — ability to understand and handle atypical or external influences on your emotions and rebalance your emotional state

    External emotional abilities

    1. emotional listening — becoming aware of others emotional states, by both explicit listening and sensing, from what they say to physical (e.g. facial, posture) expressions etc.
    2. emotional boundaries — becoming aware of and being able to separate your emotional state from others. when developing emotional listening, empathizing as part of understanding those emotions can make them feel like your own. emotional boundaries are a way to stay aware of both your emotions and others, distinctly  
    3. emotional communication — starting with sensing and some understanding of your emotions and others, developing the ability to talk about your emotions with others, and listen to others talk about theirs
