This is what I am exploring.

For academics in our spaces whose , , , , philosophies align with principles would the tools like MicroPub and MicroSub and standards like webmentions not only make tracking the spread of our stuff, but more importantly encouraging the spread and spirit, without recreating another silo. Regardless of how open?

The OER Commons tools look promising and we would need stuff like that for most educators but I was trying to figure out what a DIY approach could look like as well.

I wonder if there is an solution to also syndication to SMS messages. I can't serve the populations I work with without thinking about also having a text message service.

Greg McVerry

Interoperability does have a legacy cost but if we put effort into our metadata and standards tools can be built like the oer commons resource builder and Google Docs importer to make easier on everyday people.

We can get there I am commenting on the feed from my own website using tools.

I get to own my data and decide where to share it.

@petermolnar Does an awesome job of explaining the community.

We were discussing how some of the principles can be too hard for new users to grasp.

I will be using this guide a lot.

I need to remember, kick myself actually, make changes to website on GitHub and then push to websites....STOP making quick changes in the cpanel editor Greg.....It's the reason your repos fall so out of sync with your live sites.

This looks like an interesting approach I could take to try and finalize the migration of my courses.

But I want to try and do it on my own. I should be able to mark up the html of a learning html and then use the classes to render it differently on my syllabus website and class website.

@aaronpk I am helping a functional glass artist collective move to an model.

Currently installed have no website with no e-commerce solution.

Everything runs through Instagram, word of mouth, and PayPal.

I am thinking static web (page builder using whatever credit card PoS they have) and a micro.blog until Instagram takes away unofficial API.

Think the guillotine will drop soon?
