@dave To follow @chrisaldrich you'll probably have to do a search in your app and add it. Clicking on the username in the app will try to take you directly to my physical website and the app probably wasn't designed to do that whereas Safari will. I suspect if you were following other Fediverse accounts outside of Mastodon, you'd find the same issue in the app. As an example, try @matt who is using a non-Mastodon platform, but is Federating.

I'll check to see if there's a way around it.

Have I mentioned that I can also be followed via Mastodon directly through my personal website @chrisaldrich that acts roughly like a freestanding instance?

I’m still working out some bugs, but it’s not as horrible as I would have thought.

@chrisaldrich I've just noticed that the technology should now exist that not only can I federate with Mastodon, but I can also reply from a separate account and have the replies appear on my original post.

This post can serve as a first test.

@diagonale @chrisaldrich
You'd have do do some reasonably serious coding to do this with Known. The closest thing I'm currently aware of is the Mastodon plugin by @nxd4n for syndicating to a mastodon account: github.com/danito/KnownMastodo.
Perhaps @benwerd may know if anyone has an itch for a more heavily integrated version?

@Rovine Much of my work is heavily influenced by the movement which might give you some ideas and inspiration as well. indieweb.org

Definitely a fascinating episode of Radio Atlantic; potentially worth a second listen.

Of primary interest here, Matt Thompson discusses his concept of “Breaking the Ratio” (🎧 00:23:16-00:27:28) a take on the idea of being ratioed on Twitter.

His concept immediately brings to mind a few broad ideas:

Made some significant progress today on an approximately 2,800 word feature article on the W3C Micropub spec with some motivation, examples, use cases, etc. Needs some editing a bit of artwork, and some screenshots, but we're nearly there. 

Have a few ideas about placement already...

🎧 W. Kamau Bell on How He Communicates with Racists

How can you not love W. Kamau Bell? This reminds me that I still ought to get back to watching his show more regularly instead of letting it fester on my DVR. This is my first episode of Alda’s podcast, but he has an excellent interview style and he’s obviously got some interesting guests. The broader topic of communication and conversation is also an intriguing one to me.

I've been stockpiling episodes in my podcast queue for far too long, but Haley and Angie have been killing it on Human Current doing interviews with some of my favorite complexity systems thinkers. My listened to list is slowly growing. If you haven't already, I highly recommend subscribing.

@fncll Apologies for the late reply, but Mastodon doesn't support Webmention yet, and I don't spend much native time here.

I'm still tweaking some of the ways I'm using things, so most of it is based on importing data via RSS with a small amount of manual work. Ultimately I'll use their API to automate the entire piece. If you’re looking for something, Kris Shaffer built a Hypothes.is Aggregator that might serve as a model: pushpullfork.com/hypothesis-ag

Twenty-something: A time in one's life when it's passingly acceptable that most of one's dishware be of the plastic souvenir sort.

Thirty-something: A time when one has decommissioned all of one's souvenir cups only to replace them with twice the amount of mismatched children's sippy cups and plastic-ware.

Fourty-something: A time to help a new budding teenager begin their own addiction to plastic souvenir cups.
