The microformats Ruby parser has been completely rewritten and is much more spec compliant now: github.com/indieweb/microforma

Handy if you want to parse mastodon posts from their web pages, or display webmentions you receive

@jansegers @stefanieschulte @sandhawke @maloki pinboard.in is another good answer here, as it will save your links, and can back them up for you too

@webmink "You must become a member before 12 midday on Wednesday 3 May - voting closes at 10 pm on the same day." - also, is the list of candidates available in an open format?

The UK government aims to ban encryption via a covert regulation outside Parliament. Please support the Open Rights Group; without them you probably wouldn't know until it was too late.

@Gargron @sandhawke I know, but I keep doing it because that is what share does by default. Another case for microformats.org/wiki/share links formats
That said, if you are logged out, couldn't the internal links 302 to the permalink rather than the homepage?

@sandhawke @stefanieschulte another answer is that the fragmention can contain enough of the text to display inline - I made that here: kevinmarks.com/mentionquote.ht

@sandhawke @maloki searching for the text of the quote is often more robust that a given hyperlink.

This is partly what led me to fragmentions kevinmarks.com/fragmentions.ht

@sandhawke @Gargron the annoying thing is that links to mastodon.social/web/accounts/8 which if I share it fails for anyone not logged in.

@sargoth you know you can peek at it with unmung.com/mastoview ?

@Gargron @sandhawke my answer is use a simple Link header/link url - something like:
<link rel="accountpage" template="mastodon.social/@{nickname}" />
<link rel="accountpage" template="https://{nickname}.tumblr.com" />
<link rel="accountpage" template="known.kevinmarks.com/profile/{nickname}" />

put that on the homepage, or the link header at the domain.

@sandhawke Brad still has the domain, but the site is down. Could run it somewhere else, the code is available, but I don't think anyone else ran a server.

I think it is also overkill, as is webfinger and doubly LRRD. IT works for email address, but that isn't the webfinger usecase that @Gargron was stating.

The problem is "I know their nickname and domain, how do I find their feeds?"

/Fediverse/ sound very much like the French 'Faits divers,' a section in the paper that deals with sensationalist news in just a few lines: freak accidents, crimes passionnels, weird tragedies...

@quinn I meant your instance - it was setup for bots, and the local timeline is very Dada unmung.com/mastoview?url=botsi

@Gargron isn't the negative dynamic the primacy of @ replies rather than the search?

@deadsuperhero @Gargron @bea hashtags were originally thought of as groups, from the irc and Jaiku precedents. Old discussion here: microformats.org/wiki/microblo and indieweb.org/microsyntax
If you want to avoid reusing punctuation, but make it readily typeable there aren't many options ~ maybe? Or go with the 👥 emoji. Or 💞 perhaps. Emoji are now easier to type than punctuation for most users.

@Ronkjeffries @lambadalambda @KevinMarks I should do better error handling - I don't think I distinguish old version from the site timing out

I know that this seems to conceive of for a lot of people, but it is possible to have a social space where you simultaneously can speak freely and be free from harassment.  It all comes down to creating a culture whereby you feel you can engage and disengage at will, easily.  Getting there is no easy feat though, especially since it involves breaking the conditioning of a lot of existing social media mores.
