Ruinism by Lapalux, brilliant. Getting serious plays right now.
The social shaping of technology http://sociology.soc.uoc.gr/socmedia/zambarloukou/A001K/Williams-Edge.pdf
Enjoyed the Accidental Anarchist documentary. Interesting to see second recent mention of Abdullah Ocalan, Bookchin and democratic confederalism (other recent one being Adam Greenfield ‘s talk at Virtual Futures.)
lve found though that sometimes a monolith can help. e.g. though I love vim and its key bindings, an IDE of some kind, whether it’s Visual Studio or Emacs, can really help tie things together. The key is providing a wrapper around well defined components, not rebuilding everything from scratch. This is where there is great value in something like known or the WordPress lndieweb plugins.
The Unix philosophy makes sense when it comes to indie web etc. Various small components doing their jobs well and interacting with each other through defined formats and protocols.
l like the idea of Delta chat. A way to have ad-hoc group chats that doesnt require anyone to necessarily install anything new. I’m not sure it executes perfectly, but I like tihe idea. I want something a bit like appear.in but just for text chat.
Enki app is really nice. Mini exercises and games on coding and comp sci topics.
Playlists should not exist on siloed platforms. I should own them, they should be in some standard format, and when I choose to play one various music streaming platforms should be available to service the requests for tracks.
Tracks that I have loved over the last 10 years are currently mostly spread out over last.fm and Deezer. Wonder how I can pull those in to my own site?
Deactivated Facebook account a while back, no big repercussions. Helps that I was barely using it I’m sure. Organising meetups with people via email so far.
I suppose just going to Posts admin, setting it to Excerpt View, and using Quick Edit is the most straight-forward way of doing it.
Is there a quick way to go through all untagged WordPress posts and tag them?
syncthing wasnt working between phone & tablet for some reason, possibly a firewall issue? Introducing laptop as a relay seemed to sort it.
3 way sync between laptop, phone & tablet with syncthing. Cool!
Also I need a way to get albums of photos on to my website. (Or just individual photos for that matter.)
Have to be careful with Syncthing if you’re moving files/folders around – could result in syncing an empty folder! Check the FAQ on how to do it.
Trying to figure out a decent flow with camera photos, Syncthing and shotwell.
More and more tempted to just deactive Facebook account. Barely touched it for anything recently. Do wish there was an indie alternative that offered the same level of network though. FB has network monopoly that makes leaving it harder.
‘I want to unsubscribe from everything’. Oddly poetic option on a web form.
replacebase.co.uk turned out to be pretty good. I like the level of detail they put into each of their products. I was looking to replace a battery and they had loads of detail to describe where it came from.
Buying replacements parts for my phone. What a minefield – have to read the comments very carefully to learn whether or not what is listed as a ‘genuine’ part is actually a complete dud.

Time well spent: unsubscribing from mailing lists that just clutter my inbox rather than provide me with any value.
Bridgy WP plugin doesn’t seem to be called when using micropub.
App idea: traps certain phone notifications, sends them to you as a daily digest rather than a constant stream.
Sending a test note from Emacs via shpub.
Next up, calling shpub from within emacs. This should help: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14076683/calling-shell-from-emacs
