  1. ↪ In reply to Tantek’s note As before, while away I went without a few things for a few days:

     4d no coffee while on yoga retreat
     8d no watching media (between flights to&from)
    12d no deliberate listening to music
    16d+ no earphones/headphones for music

    And significantly reduced screentime.

    The fewer stimulants, the more calmness, the more I could see, hear, and sense.

  2. ↪ In reply to Tantek’s note Lack of (or insufficient) self-advocacy can be a form of self-obstruction, seeing doors as locked when they are unlocked, or self-sabotage, misperceiving self-worth, not speaking up, understating self-worth.

    Such harms may spill into shared works and relationships, under-advocacy and under-appreciation of partners, friends, teammates, co-workers, communities.

    These connections can work both ways. Advocacy strengthening advocacy. Worth to worth.

  3. Time away was good. Calmness, perspectives, insights:

    1 I need to self-advocate more
    2 More sight into the yoga teacher / student relationship
    3 Listening, respecting, respecting choices & wishes
    4 Talkers vs. listeners, their dynamic, few that balance both

  4. ↪ In reply to Tantek’s note Despite not checking FB (always a good start), I’ve found it takes a while (at least a day?) to stop feeling compelled to check, keep up with, or “work on” whatever projects (job related or not) are top of mind. Email, Slack, etc.

  5. Taking a few days off from many things for warmer, sunnier shores, and a yoga retreat.

    Still haven’t checked Facebook notifications since the last retreat, January over a year ago.

    Brought a notepad & books. Going to read, write, post what surfaces.

  7. ↪ In reply to Tantek’s note #TheMatrix was a huge influence on how I viewed the evolution of human computer interactions & systems. Had forgotten today was 20th anniversary.
    No human reminded me.

  16. ↪ In reply to Tantek’s note Summary:
    01:42 suspended per Twitter email: "abusive behavior" and "targeted harassment of someone"
    18:36 restored per "account got caught up in one of these spam groups by mistake"

    My tweets are pretty boring. Running pics. #IndieWeb #CSS

    One comparing Twitter to the Matrix about an abstract “someone”. Does Twitter’s automated system think “harassment of someone” literally means referring to the literal text “someone”? Is one offhand tweet considered “harassment”?

  17. ↪ In reply to @zeldman’s tweet Thanks @zeldman @absalomedia @adactio @meyerweb @SaraSoueidan @keithjgrant @benwerd @pdxposhy @bastianallgeier @m_ott @ohhelloana @jackyalcine @ken_bauer @jgarber @tomcoates

    If my boring account can be falsely suspended, what of those less privileged? Quietly silenced & forgotten?

  29. ↪ In reply to a comment on issue 27 of GitHub project “arewedistributedyet” https://github.com/lgrahl, by “which umbrella organisation”, which organizations do you think are setup / intended to handle incubation efforts that are not yet ready for standardization? Or do you think there is already something that has been incubated that is ready for standardization? If so, could you link to what in particular and where it was incubated?

    While I am a fan of doing standardization work @WHATWG (and @W3C and @IETF, depending on which is most appropriate accordingly), I will point out that WHATWG themselves note that they “anticipate features will be “incubated” outside of WHATWG standards” per https://whatwg.org/working-mode#new-proposals

    You also referenced W3C’s paid membership model. Note that W3C Community Groups (which this is a proposal for) are open to all (anyone may participate) and without fee (no membership is required) per https://www.w3.org/community/about/

    The existing W3C CG WICG https://www.w3.org/community/wicg/ has a fairly good track record for incubating proposals in their GitHub repos which then either graduate to a working group (some have gone to W3C, others to WHATWG), or incubation stalls/fails as a result of discovering an area or proposal is unworkable or lacks market interest etc.

    Are there other incubation-friendly/centric organizations that you think would be a better home for a dweb/p2p incubation group than a W3C CG?

  34. New issue on GitHub project “webmention.io”

    Webmention.io /api target= param should accept protocol relative URL to return http + https mentions

    The webmention.io /api endpoints accept a 'target' query parameter which currently must be an absolute URL. This proposal extends the 'target' query parameter to also accept a protocol relative URL (i.e. starting with "//") and return all mentions of that target with any protocol (e.g. both 'http:' and 'https:').

    Use-case: this will allow sites which have migrated from http to https, or which still serve both http and https and accept webmentions for both, to easily query webmention.io for all mentions to either http/https versions of their permalinks, to show webmentions regardless of which protocol was used in their webmention target URLs.

    Test-case: http://tantek.com/2019/065/e1/homebrew-website-club-sf is live with an iframe that embeds a display of RSVP webmentions via a service using a protocol relative URL in the target param to a webmention.io api call. Check both of these:

    And you should see at least one RSVP displayed in the bottom from v2.jacky.wtf, likely with a green checkmark ✅. Here’s a direct link to just the RSVP display for that post but hardcoded to 'http:' mentions only: v2.jacky.wtf RSVP.

  35. Shine bright and be inspired by the lights. ✨
