  5. Good #ElectionDay U.S. friends!

    If you’ve voted, thank you for voting.
    Put "#ivoted [x]" in front of your name.

    If you’re a youth early voter (“under 30”*), THANK YOU, the media has noticed*, now go get 2+ more friends to vote. Show up to have a bigger voice in the future!

    We need you to influence the future more than old white men who won’t be around in 20 years.

  10. New issue on GitHub project “webmention”

    Received webmention update with source redirect should update comment link

    In 3.2.4 Updating existing Webmentions, there needs to be a step to keep track of a source redirect e.g. for a new slug, or updating http to https, and to save and use that new URL instead of the original source in places like linking a received comment back to its original.

  11. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. 🌄 Beautiful #Tamoween Tam summit (#5) yesterday morning! Got a head start in front of pals Bryan, Vivek, Krissi. Headlamp died. Bryan noticed when he caught up and gave me his spare! (which he happened to be running with!). Mostly solo ascent, only one brief detour right before the Temelpa trailhead. I saw the sunrise light-up the rocks as I was halfway up the last steep scramble, catching sunbeams at the top.

    Super clear skies from the start, watching the sky get lighter, then turn orange and light-up a few streaking clouds.

    9.3 miles & 2700+' climbed. Last midweek #ECSCA #50ktraining session done!

  12. ↪ In reply to @mfcrawford’s tweet @mfcrawford so you’re saying YES on CA Proposition 8 then?
    If you think it would actually help dialysis patients, then I can be convinced.

    Am worried it will harm quality of service to patients, per media analysis:
    https://ballotpedia.org/California_Proposition_8,_Limits_on_Dialysis_Clinics'_Revenue_and_Required_Refunds_Initiative_(2018)#Media_editorials

    Note “Support” just summarizes, no reasoning, whereas “Opposition” statements by papers appear to provide decent analyses and reasons for opposing. Why would so many (presumably liberal) newspapers oppose a proposition that is supposed to help patients? Only explanation is that under analysis, the proposition may have the opposite effect.

    Regardless, I’ve linked to your tweet from my summary post as a counter-argument.

  13. Reminder: vote in the U.S. Midterm Election on November 6th (or go early vote, or mail in your absentee ballot ASAP!), if you’re registered to vote in the U.S.

    See https://www.vote.org/ for your early voting option(s) if any, polling locations, etc.

    California & SF Propositions at permalink below.

    Unsure who to vote for? NO GOP. Whoever you vote for, DO NOT vote Republican. The GOP has clearly demonstrated over the past year that it has no principles other than power and expediency for their own existence. Children (still) in cages, climate/science denialism, "both side-ism" apologisms for hate groups, disregard for women’s safety and voices, etc.

    California proposition suggestions:
    Yes: 1, 2, 4, 5*, 7, 11*, 12
    No: 3*, 6, 8*, 10*

    San Francisco measures suggestions:
    Yes: A, C, D
    No: B*, E

    *Details for few of these:

    CA 5 YES: From the rough calculations that a few of us made at an election discussion salon, proposition 5 could increase the number of housing units in SF by 50,000 (based on demographic estimates of number of 55+ year-old SF homeowners with larger housing than they need, who would likely move).

    CA 11 YES: Only a mild Yes on this one. Appears to be a net positive, but skeptical about the AMR-only aspect.

    CA 3 NO: Appears to only benefit special interests.

    CA 8 NO: May harm dialysis patients more than help.
    Counter-arguments:
    * https://twitter.com/mfcrawford/status/1057784006786265089
    * https://www.sfchronicle.com/opinion/openforum/amp/Vote-yes-on-California-Proposition-8-to-13306261.php
    Media analysis (nearly all OPPOSED to 8) :
    * https://ballotpedia.org/California_Proposition_8,_Limits_on_Dialysis_Clinics'_Revenue_and_Required_Refunds_Initiative_(2018)#Media_editorials

    CA 10 NO: Badly written proposition, does too much, allows cities to be hyper-NIMBY and set rentals policy that effectively disincentivizes any rental housing development.
    See thread at https://twitter.com/graue/status/1052669954556719104 for more details.

    SF B NO: Though seemingly focuses on privacy, actual measure may do more harm in practice than good. Skeptical enough about it to vote no.

  16. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. Five years ago today I just showed up to @Nov_Project_SF, and my life took a turn for the better. #NPSF itself started at #Kezar so perhaps it was appropriate that I celebrated my fifth #NPversary with a bit of #tracktuesday and this dedicated pre-dawn crew.

    So grateful for the friends, community, lessons learned, and so many workouts. I would not have imagined being where I am now (19 days til my first ultra).

  17. #MozFest: Decentralized Web Standards: From ActivityPub to Webmention

    When: Where: MozFest Host: Tantek Çelik

    Come discuss the alternative web protocols and standards that can enable the decentralized future we want to see.

    RSVP: post an indie RSVP on your own site!

    Notes

    Pages and specifications in order summarized, roughly alphabetical:

    In addition we showed how most specifications also link to their test suite which is a god place to get started for implementing and looking up implementation reports for what others have already built.

    Questions and Answers

    A few of the Q&A off the top of my head.

    Q: How do build a decentralized version of Google Reader?
    A: Check out the emerging Microsub specification and implementations — several user-friendly clients and as of today there are now two working server implementations with more being built.
    Q: How does someone easily get started with these technologies, like for WordPress?
    A: For WordPress you can install IndieWeb plugins to get federation support.
    A: For folks that just want to a service that supports their personal domain, check out Micro.blog which has excellent support for posting notes, photos etc.

    (If you remember any more of the Q&A, please contact me (or drop in the indieweb chat, see below) so I can add it to the above).

  23. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. 🌄 Magical sunrise[1], clouds, & fog on yesterday’s #TNFECS #ECSCA #50ktraining run. Started before #sunrise, ran up Fox, looked back to see the sun break over the headlands[2]. The view from the top of Fox looked like a different land[3], no sign of SF except a small tip of Salesforce Tower.

    Looking down Coastal Fire road at the longest of shadows[4], before descending right back into the clouds, their tops lit by the rising sun[5]. Ran quite a ways under cloud cover until emerging on Coastal Trail[6] on the way up to Cardiac Hill far above[7] where I snacked and joined up with Morgan who caught up with a couple of friends

    After a team-running-inspired speedy descent into Muir Woods, and rapidly navigating the maze of trails (from last week’s memory), cruising down the Sun Trail, trees for days[8]. Another speedy ride down Dipsea, a tough climb, down a fire road to Muir Road, then unwinding the path back to Tennessee Valley for a brief aid-stop at the car.

    Finally up Marincello on tired legs for the extra miles to hit marathon distance, then inspired to get more vert up to the top of Alta Trail, turning around before its forest descent[9], venturing out a side trail for views of Angel Island and Alcatraz[10] before running back to the car as fast as my legs would take me.

    27.3 miles and 5978' done. The farthest and most climbing I have run / power-hiked, and my last long run before my first 50k in four weeks.

    I think I’m ready.

Clear skies(2) from the start, faint streaks of orange before sunrise(3). Clear gradients 11 minutes before(4) sunrise, a leading orange glow 7 minutes before(5). Finally, sunrise from the door of the hut at the top(6), and a view from the rocks of the green hills below(7).

    8.5 miles before 9 (2500+' climbed). Midweek #ECSCA #50ktraining session done.

  27. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. a jpg. Longer Farther Higher Faster. Yesterday’s #ECSCA #50ktraining run was the longest time I’ve spent running, the farthest trail distance traversed (22 miles), the most elevation climbed (4800'+), and my fastest on several segments.

    I started my run at dawn, watched the sun rise over the Marin Headlands(1), longer shadows on familiar trails(2). Descended through low clouds(3 pano) to Muir Beach, ran along a hillside to a fog shrouded meadow(4), a lone blue heron watching my stride. Ascended up switchbacks under a cooling cloud cover(5), halfway up my friend Morgan caught me(6), having started her run a half hour after me.

    Met up again at the top of the ridge and ran above the clouds once again(7) to the top of Cardiac(8 pano) where I stopped to eat a Gu stroopwafel, and drink & refill at the water fountain. Ran so many new trails downhill through Muir Woods, carefully checking turn by turn directions at each junction. Crossed a metal bridge placed over a log(9) before starting a long ascent up to a trail above the trees(10). Running later than expected, I sped down Dipsea to Muir Road, Redwood Creek, Coastal Fire road, Fox to Tennesee Valley.

    ECSCA 50k training has been one of the harder things I have pursued. The physical training, beyond sleep and proper fueling (water, electrolytes, food), requires discipline to make time to train and then to actually get out the door and do it, often by yourself. Training can bring a different kind of loneliness, that makes you appreciate every person you see out there, and especially grateful when you see friends. Much more to say on mental & emotional challenges, learning to drink & eat while running, etc. This will do for now.

    1. Up Fox taking in a westward view
    2. Down Coastal Fire Road looking south, a low hanging cloud with a surreal reflection on the ocean

    6. Top of Fox trail before sprinting down to Tennessee Valley
    7. Up Marincello looking East
    8. Down Bobcat toward Alta (saw a baby snake!) with glimpses of downtown San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Sutro tower on the distant horizon.

    ~14.3 miles, 2900'+. Legs felt pretty good despite climbing 1000'+ at #NPSF Friday hills the day before. Finally broke 100+ miles in the past 30 days. Six weeks til my first 50k.

Finally, sunbeams on the way down (1), and a speedier descent (📷 7 by @BryanTing).

    9 miles before 9 (and 2500+' climbed)

  34. Two days ago (10/3) was my 7th anniversary of employment @Mozilla (contracted for ~18 months before that).

    I’ve only worked at one other organization for that many years, also starting with “M”. In comparison, today I’m far more optimistic about what I’m working on, and the organization I’m working with than last time I hit the 7 year employment mark. Interestingly enough I’m more optimistic about that other organization today than when I left it as well.

The second time, you know how hard it was, fear from experience, and known unknowns: remembering many forks, but not which to take.

    Slept a bit more the night before. Got up earlier, ate (fueled), had some coffee, and foam-rolled my IT bands. On the drive up I felt a bit more intimidated, remembering how hard it was the previous week (tantek.com/2018/262/t2/first-tam-summit).

    Got a head start from downtown Mill Valley, with a reminder from Hannah & Krissi: head up the stairs. Took the middle, uphill, fork among three roads. I warmed up power-hiking that first stretch with a steady but persistent breath. By the time Bryan caught up to me I had hit a comfortable stride, moving in rhythm with my breathing.

    The full-ish moon gave everything a subtle glow; we could still see the stars. Everything felt more familiar this time and I was having fun pressing forward, Bryan leading the way again. He took an amazing pano shot (1) just as the sun was rising. 10 minutes before that he caught me grinning to a backdrop of cotton candy skies (2). I took quick shots of the horizon as it got lighter (3-5), as the sun broke through the clouds and rose (6-8), and upon reaching the Tam Summit door, 5+ min faster than last week (8).

    Bryan took a few timer photos of the four of us, the first of which I think turned out the best (9). Finally, Krissi led us down a different path down, to the Cypress trail, through some very pretty woods (10, 📷  @therunetarian), eventually to the Dipsea stairs, and back to downtown Mill Valley.

    Another 9 miles (2700'+ climbed) before 9am. Grateful for fierce runner friends eager to get up and run in darkness. Next week, I’ll face the forks.
