_So before this gets unleashed on the world please do your research and study the available literature. Get experts to review it and listen to the people that have been doing this for a long time. You can then avoid repeating the mistakes of the past._

[Also using Webmentions to post to my site and syndicate to github is pretty darn cool..]

Standards are documentation, not legislation. They explain how to make your code do the same thing as mine. Sadly, we write them in an imperative voice, and don't explain how we chose them. Alex has more to say: infrequently.org/2018/06/effec #indieweb #microformats

Fantastic performance tonight in San Francisco by @dessadarling@twitter.com She's a fabulous performer and member of Doomtree Collective.

The 2016 event was a watershed moment. Both @matrixdotorg and @ipfsbot launched there amidst a rich tapestry of technology, philosophy, ethics, and activism.

I'm going to work with my IA friends to make sure that more will be on offer. In 2016 Maira Sutton from Shareable was there, hoping for a lot more.
