    https://tmichellemoore.com/, Regarding “this account for your Mastodon posts”, I don’t use an “account”, nor any “Mastodon posts”. I have my website, https://tantek.com/, and use it to directly post notes & replies (like this one). Previously I had a https://xoxo.zone/ account which I have redirected to my website. Regarding, “not using any other Mastodon accounts”, there is no need to use any other accounts, Mastodon or otherwise, when you can post all notes & replies on your own site where you fully control the display, design, markup etc., without depending on an instance admin. #IndieWeb building blocks and Bridgy Fed (https://fed.brid.gy/) make all this possible, as described in my post: https://tantek.com/2022/301/t1/twittermigration-bridgyfed-mastodon-indieweb

    upgraded my @BBEdit to v14. Thanks https://Barebones.com for a smooth & solid text editor for decades. Its HTML validator checks a/area/link rel for XFN values like rel=me (since 9.6.2). Are there #microformats2 Clippings? Perhaps a holidays project, for h-card, h-entry, h-event, and other #indieweb building blocks.

    Two days ago my #BridgyFed followers crossed 8-bits: https://fed.brid.gy/user/tantek.com Signs of #TwitterMigration: my prev post had ~2x more #fediverse responses than Twitter, a ~500:1 difference per follower (having ~250x more Twitter followers). Many possible factors. Mastodon users see more from their followings. Twitter accounts could be mostly bots or abandoned. Recent posts are technical, maybe Mastodon users are more technical. Tech friends migrated first. Or hashtagging #fediverse.

    Running For The @W3C Advisory Board (@W3CAB) Special Election

    Hi, I’m Tantek Çelik and I’m running for the W3C Advisory Board (AB) to help it reboot W3C as a community-led, values-driven, and more effective organization. I have been participating in and contributing to W3C groups and specifications for over 24 years.

    I am Mozilla’s Advisory Committee (AC) representative and have previously served on the AB for several terms, starting in 2013. In the early years I helped lead the movement to offer open licensing of W3C standards, and make it more responsive to the needs of independent websites and open source implementers. In my most recent term I led the AB’s Priority Project for an updated W3C Vision. I set the example of a consensus-based work-mode of summarizing & providing granular proposed resolutions to issues, presenting these to the AB at the August 2022 Berlin meeting, and making edits to the W3C Vision according to consensus.

    I co-chaired the W3C Social Web Working Group that produced several widely interoperably deployed Social Web Standards, most notably the ActivityPub specification, which has received renewed attention as the technology behind Mastodon and other implementations growing an open decentralized alternative to proprietary social media networks such as Twitter. ActivityPub was but one of seven W3C Recommendations produced by the Social Web Working Group, six of which are widely adopted by implementations & their users, five of those with still functional test suites today, almost five years later.

    Most recently, I’ve focused on the efforts to clarify and operationalize W3C’s core values, and campaigned to add Sustainability to W3C’s Horizontal Reviews in alignment with the TAG’s Ethical Web Principles. I established the Sustainability Community Group and helped organize interested participants at TPAC 2022 into asynchronous work areas.

    The next 6-18 months of the Advisory Board are going to be a critical transition period, and will require experienced AB members to actively work in coordination with the TAG and the Board of Directors to establish new models and procedures for sustainable community-driven leadership and governance of W3C.

    I have Mozilla’s financial support to spend my time pursuing these goals, and ask for your support to build the broad consensus required to achieve them.

    You can follow my posts directly from my tantek.com feed or from Mastodon with: @tantek.com@tantek.com

    If you have any questions or want to chat about the W3C Advisory Board, Values & Vision, or anything else W3C related, please reach out by email: tantek at mozilla.com. Thank you for your consideration.

    Yesterday I ran the Spartan Turkey Trot #5k #race in 41:42 @SpartanTurkey5k. First #turkeyTrot in a while that I ran/jogged/walked. #turkeyTrot2022 Arrived early like last year for a warm-up. Alternated run/walk sessions for ~10min then jogged back to the track start area. Got my bib, pinned it on, used the bathroom, and kept warming up with back/forth strides next to the track. Saw niece & nephew2 start in wave 1, kept warming up. Decided to start with my dad in wave 3. Had to use the bathroom one more time, and by the time I got out, wave 3 was already off. Got stuck waiting in wave 4 (walkers & strollers). Made my way to the start then ran without pacing myself to catch my dad. Found him and decided that I’d rather stay with him and keep him company. Ran/jogged/walked the rest of the race, eventually returning to the high school track. We ran the back straight through the finish arch.

    Happy ordinal pi day! 2022-314 Because if you’re going to be mathsci-nerdy about dates, why associate with made-up month lengths? And "3/14" is US-centric. UK/EU can’t have 31/4 — no April 31st. #ordinalDate #standards #piday #pi Previously: * https://tantek.com/2015/314/t1/happy-ordinal-pi-day * https://tantek.com/2013/314/t1/run-to-beach-happy-pi-day * https://tantek.com/2010/314/t3/happy-pi-day-314-1592653
