Frank Meeuwsen's microblog

Another project to find out: When my site gets updated by Ownyourgram, it’s a different version then my local version. I have my own workflow that doesn’t really check to get the latest version first from Github. Is there a way to check this before git push without having to think about fetch and pull?

Kinda curious how MB breaks down to countries. Do you have an idea on that @manton? I think there are at most 20 Dutch people here….

I think it’s time to tweak my OwnYourGram account to my blog. I do want all my IG posts local but don’t want to show them by default on my blog and consequentially linked to this place. Back to the drawingboard.

Finally visited the Bonami computer- and consolemuseum in Zwolle today (Netherlands). Had sooooo much fun with my 5 year old son there with both old and new consolegames!

“Blogging, that much-maligned pastime, is gradually but surely disappearing from the Internet, and so, consequently, is a lot of online freedom and fun.”

Well..they sure know how to work the best tricks from blogs how to get attention ;-)

The End of the Awl and the Vanishing of Freedom and Fun from the Internet

A DM only iOS Twitter app. Does that exist? Not the full timeline. No lists. Just DM. #almostindieweb

I have a stopover in Portland to go to Amsterdam. I flew with a brand new airplane from Alaska Air. Beautiful plane but most of all a great little message from the captain when we unboarded: “Be kind to each other”. Small yet powerful message.

I will be at the CES in Las Vegas next week. We will be one of the startups in the Holland Pavilion. Will I meet some Indiewebbers there? I doubt it… Does anyone have good off-the-beaten-track Vegas tips? Maybe some running tracks?

I still need to find some time and place to tweak my own blog with the Instagram posts. Not quite happy with how it syndicates to other channels…

Here’s a first micropost from Drafts 4 with the Micro Blog Action that’s available from the app. Thanks @colinwalker and @agiletortoise

For all here fluent in the Dutch language (all 5 of you? ;-)), a short write up of my incredible adventures to incorporate Instagram on my site. diggingthedigital.com/Instagram…

I am looking for some help with micropub endpoints and OwnYourGram. I use this script on Github to have my own endpoint on my site. But now Instagram posts are posted to my Master branch and not to GH-Pages. Now what?

Pretty happy with my new Panobooks from Studio Neat.

Yesterday I learned about the existence of Oh My ZSH. Besides the coolest name in app history, it’s a incredible interesting framework to use in iTerm2 and learn more about shell, terminal and bash-files. A nice geeky evening it was!

hmmm.. for some reason the feed from my test microblog on Github doesn’t send the description. Just the title. No link as well.

I plan to write a Dutch blogpost on Micro.blog today/tomorrow. It depends on how proactive my daughter will be for herself with the preps for het xmas dinner at school ;-) Anyway, @manton are you available for a quote or perhaps some insights in first growth? Can I mail you?

I am looking for proper explanations or code-examples how to make a facepile of my webmentions. I use Jekyll on GH Pages. Any pointers are welcome!

The word Weblog turns 20 today. Here’s a small part of (Dutch) internethistory written in my weekly digest

Last Jedi. Excellent.

Tonight…
