Insurrection aftermath: Don’t absolve yourself

There's something subtle, but incredibly important for our society that many people are missing after the insurrection.

I've been thinking about an broad idea for over two years and have distilled it down to this important and pressing question for society:
Where is the digital pale?

Los Angeles is having a bad day. Both Tommy Lasorda and Tom LaBonge have died.

I'm pained to discover that @HBOMax only has English dubs of the Studio Ghibli collection. I was really hoping for the originals in Japanese.

My poor little website passed 23,000 comments/replies/reactions yesterday. This is in tremendous part due to webmentions and the ability to collect the conversation about my content across social spaces.
I'm wondering when comments will pass the number of posts (currently 27,648)?

I had MarkDownload installed in Chrome before and had used it a bit. Spent some time tonight and did some custom configuration in the settings to make it easier to save web pages directly to my Obsidian commonplace book. This can be an interesting method for quickly saving and linking lots of data, though it also means saving a lot more than may be strictly necessary, particularly at scale. I'm still not giving up on my Hypothes.

It took a bit of moving data, extensions, and other details over, but I've now made the switch to Firefox as my default browser. Sweeping Chrome into the dustbin.

It's long past time to divest my personal data from Google. Reading this article on holiday reminds me that I've got time to start making the necessary changes.

I'd read the news items and the op-ed earlier in the month when they were released. After a bit of digging I found this .pdf file that has more details about Johns Hopkins slave ownership. Interested to see what other details historical research reveals.

Some great articles hiding here. Glad that Johns Hopkins is doing some research into it's own history.

It’s annoyed me a bit since I did it, so I’ve finally gotten around to changing my username on micro.blog from @c to @chrisaldrich. This brings my identity there in line with much of the rest of my digital accounts which have the same username/handle/screen name.

I still have control of the separate @c account, but don’t plan on posting there actively. Maybe I’ll use it with another site? (boffosocko.com/?p=55784293)

Automating syndication of reply contexts in Twitter Cards using OGP metacrap and plugins in WordPress

A Metacrap Problem

It's metacrap--I know, I know--but I've been thinking about easy ways to use Open Graph Protocol meta data to add contextual Twitter cards to some of my content when syndicating posts to Twitter. My goal is to leverage the speed a

And just like that the episode of West Wing I was watching on Netflix ended and it wouldn't play the next one. Fortunately I can skip over to HBO Max, and there's the entire series, so I can keep watching from there. 🎉

Non-technical IndieWeb: Fun, Creativity, Community, and “Content”

I wish the indieweb had more content that wasn't about the indieweb

The hard part of making cool websites isn't the tech, it's the content! Of course I fall into the trap of writing a new ssg every six months as well because it's easier and safer than writing or dr

Crediting your own website when syndicating to Mastodon with WordPress plugins

I've been tinkering around with methods to automatically syndicate (POSSE) content from my personal website to Mastodon. I've been working at making a custom plugin which is far from finished. But a test post I made the other day, caught a few people's attention[1][2]. 

I was trying to syndicat

I've come to the realization that one of my favorite (and most used) social feed readers is the IndieWeb Chat. I discover so many interesting people and so much great content there.
