@tomcoates yes Google Search lost temporal depth, prioritizes days-old froth. Ironically, Twitter date-scoped search finds historical news links: https://twitter.com/search?q=Trump%20Ukraine%20until%3A2020-01-01%20since%3A2008-01-01&src=typed_query&f=live Wikipedia has a bunch: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trump%E2%80%93Ukraine_scandal Could use former to improve latter.
Last month was the anniversary of two #IndieWeb #distributedWeb building block specifications becoming @W3C Recommendations: * 5y Webmention: https://www.w3.org/TR/2017/REC-webmention-20170112/ * 4y WebSub: https://www.w3.org/TR/2018/REC-websub-20180123/ Both specs are peer-to-peer mechanisms, Webmention for a site to notify another of a new or updated link to it, and WebSub for a site to broadcast (or subscribe to) notifications for when that site has published new content. Bridgy is a good source of metrics for Webmention. The Bridgy stats from last June https://snarfed.org/2021-06-05_bridgy-stats-update-6 show steady growth in both total Webmentions sent and perhaps more importantly, unique domains sending and receiving Webmentions. In addition the number of implementations & support libraries continues to grow, interoperable across multiple languages: https://indieweb.org/Webmention-developer#Implementations Webmentions still have interesting social and UX challenges. While spam has not (yet) been a major challenge, there is the larger challenge of how to semi-automatically moderate and/or prioritize handling webmentions received from others, especially people you have not met before. The nascent Vouch extension https://indieweb.org/Vouch has been prototyped and implemented on some sites yet needs some work to address the more sublte social challenges. There are challenges with even trusting and displaying the icons of authors who have sent webmentions. Pixelated icons https://indieweb.org/pixelated are one possible approach. WebSub has shown slower growth. While the number of sites that provide WebSub notifications for new content continues to grow: https://indieweb.org/WebSub#IndieWeb_Examples the number of hubs and hub implementations have been fairly stable for the past year https://indieweb.org/WebSub#Hubs as well as implementations that consume WebSub notifications: https://indieweb.org/WebSub#Consuming_Implementations The key next step for WebSub is more Reader implementations, e.g. in modern Social Readers https://indieweb.org/social_reader to provide realtime updates immediately when publishing sites post new content. Once there is broader incentive for more sites to provide WebSub notifications, consuming sites such as readers will have more incentive to implement receiving WebSub notifications, reinforcing a positive implementation feedback loop. With the combination of Social Readers showing new posts in real time via WebSub and personal sites showing new comments & other responses in real time via Webmention, the peer-to-peer web will provide a responsive experience comparable to centralized social media silos. Want to support Webmention and/or WebSub on your own site? Drop by the IndieWeb Developer chat and say hi! https://chat.indieweb.org/dev
https://github.com/gobengo please use the Bugzilla bug for Web Share API to check for info about Firefox support in particular. In this case it looks like it was implemented in Firefox 71: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1312422 (also linked from the standards-position dashboard entry via the wrench). You can also check the corresponding MDN page (also linked from the dashboard entry) if you only wanted to check whether or not Firefox (or another browser) supports it: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Navigator/share#browser_compatibility For Web Share Target API, I checked https://mozilla.github.io/standards-positions/#web-share-target and it also has a wrench icon link to its corresponding Bugzilla bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1476515

🎂 Happy birthday Bridgy! Congrats Ryan (@schnarfed), contributors, users! 10 years of bridging #indieweb & #socialmedia. #POSSE posts, #backfeed responses. #Federate systems, like the web was invented to. Stats & charts & more: https://snarfed.org/2022-01-08_happy-10th-birthday-bridgy
If I post notes to my site instead of Twitter, who will see them? It’s not either or, it’s yes and. Post to your Own Site, and Syndicate Elsewhere (to Twitter etc.) https://indieweb.org/POSSE POSSE directly or use a service like https://brid.gy
I, for one, welcome all the independents speaking truth to power, criticizing organizations when they do or encourage harmful actions, especially in a systemic or global scope. Even better when folks post said critiques to their personal sites. #indieweb
Posting notes on your site is the “Hello World” of the independent web. If you speak to the ideals of the #openWeb #decentralizedWeb #distributedWeb #federatedWeb #indieWeb or even #smallWeb, walk your talk: post your notes somewhere you control. Whether static HTML, server-generated from storage, or a service supporting your domain, choose a method that works sustainably for you, and stick to it. Questions about options and when or why to choose one or another? Ask: https://chat.indieweb.org/
Happy 2022 friends! 12 years ago I began posting notes on my site before Twitter: https://tantek.com/2010/001/t1/declaring-independence-building-it Have a site? Own your notes in 2022. Be the #P2P #decentralization you want to see, instead of tweeting to the wind. Questions? Ask the #indieweb community: https://chat.indieweb.org/ 2 years ago: https://tantek.com/2020/001/t1/10-years-notes-my-site
