My quick thoughts, back stage, and rants as I try to Teach kids about the Web while learning how to help others build a better Web.

My knuckles
scraped, dirt
congeals with blood
I stack the fallen rock
and slip into
time scales
a rock turned
by glacier
cleared by Slash and Burn
Indigenous farmers
stacked neatly
in abandon
walls by
a Conquering culture
restacked by
Suburban decsendants
now mixing my
blood into
this soil
as moss
falls to my time
Rocks when
you listen closely
sing of such beautiful
tragedy

The term Hispanic, coined by technomarketing experts and by the designers of political campaigns, homogenizes our cultural diversity (Chicanos, Cubans, and Puerto Ricans become indistinguishable), avoids our indigenous cultural heritage and links us directly with Spain. Worse yet, it possesses connotations of upward mobility and political obedience.

My most seven frequent apps: Firefox Preview, Chrome (my blog) , Slack, Nuzzel, Indigenous (my social reader), Signal.

If you keep social media off your phone it can't get in your head. Keep work email off your phone and try to enjoy life.

I need to get this book: https://indigosbookshelf.blogspot.com/2019/08/an-indigenous-peoples-history-of-united.html @debreese & @JeanMendoza2016's amazing INDIGENOUS PPLS' HISTORY OF THE US in Connecticut every "town placard" begins with a story how the land was traded by the indigenous, in East Haddam it was 35 coats....

Can we just use Aperture/Indigenous as the client or do we only need Indigenous? Haven't dug into code to see if microsub native.

Wouldn't have skills for PR but interest is growing for a simpler version of WordPress(ish) that is Known.

Greg McVerry

Checkout Aperture and https://aperture.p3k.io connected to either Indigenous on Android or iOS its awesome. WordPress.com reader experience good as well.

Thx to @swentel I can syndicate to Twitter from my phone using a Micropub client. @ohthatflo could win Arena with Indigenous for Android.

Greg McVerry

@benwerd Thank you for all you and Erin did. I think @withknown has a future as an important part of the backbone.

Been using as my micro.blog gong engine for some time. With apps like Indigenous it is great.

Greg McVerry

I am really enjoying the Indigenous app.

Greg McVerry

Yes and this is being sent from the Indigenous app to @withknown using Micropub, an tech baked into the tools we use.

If you have the plugins installed you should be able to POSSE to Twitter (not Facebook soon) but I think @chrisaldrich uses a plug in called SNAP and not bridgy, webmentions, and semantic linkback (all plug ins included in the indieweb plug in).

You are using 100% compatible theme in your sandbox. That helps. Even my theme glitches webmentions when something updates
