I got my answer. Not as positive as I expected it to be. It's intended to only provide the abstract :/

@thurloat why do you have to start over? Lost a backup of your feed reader config?

So today I published a new article about using web feeds and RSS in particular.

TL;DR: I use Nextcloud News to organize my feeds and create a very personal news mix that fits my taste. Besides that it allows me to drop lots of newsletters and I even do release management with it.


:sheogorath: There is a Sheogorath emoji :D

You ask me why? I ask you, why not? It's possible so it can be there. I'll probably never use it, but who knows, might you will?

Fun fact: And as smartphones are phones that can do everything except of phone calls these days, smarttypewriters are typewriters that can do everything expect of writing letters (as we can't get printers to work with them).

😱 😱 😱 I just realized that we can be very, very happy that computers were invented decades ago.

Looking at the recent achievements in naming things, that would be horrible.

Keep in mind, that in the first manuals of UNIX, it wasn't talking about computers, but about typewriters.

So I guess, if computers would have been invented these days, they would be called: Smarttypewriters.

@sheogorath whoa very cool! til, thanks for sharing! To get the shortcut to work I needed to "open the Developer Tools Settings, go to the section "Advanced Settings", and check the settings "Enable browser chrome and add-on debugging toolboxes" and "Enable remote debugging"."

@cstanhope What we have to do now is attending meetings with MEPs and talking with them. Not as a "saveYourInternet" movement, but as people who care. When you have a business, that's always a good argument. Tell them how it affects you.

When you are are a creator, tell them how it affects you, when you are a user, tell what you are worried about. And actually get away from "we are many". You don't have to convince your MEP that there are internet users, but how it matters for you.

@cstanhope I don't want to say that those articles are really helpful or will change things, but I want to provide a reasoning why they get so many votes.

And maybe Article 11 and 13 feels like "At least we do something". And one things is sure: There are european companies, like some newspapers and music sellers, that will profit from that regulation, while Google and friends have to pay.

What is maybe not obvious to all MEPs is that it may causes more damage upon other european companies.

@albert Let me think: Big marketing campaigns? Better search results? "Free" tiers with way higher data volumes? Network effect? More convenient design? Better integration with other big players?

And I guess even in that order.

And less money available/more conservative investment of money into new ideas, startups, research and development.

But all the factors above can't changed by us, while "let's use some European service" is an action you, I and everyone else can do today.

When we look at Article 11 and Article 13 in the EU copyright reform, then we can complain about a lot of things.

But I don't expect that lobbyists made it to collect all those votes alone. I'm sure some MEPs want to help EU companies while taming those big monopolies like Google and Facebook.

Which raises the question, why do they feel this need? And that's because of us. Because we use(d) all those big players instead of running with our european medium-sized internet businesses.

@amolith Exactly. You should decide which of both is the main source of the content you repost. I can imagine that changing the canonical URL in plume is rather hard. Depending on what CMS you use on your website, it's maybe easier.

@amolith The canonical link element tells a crawler: "Look, this is a re-post of content, the original published one is over there"

The idea is that you tell a search engine what's the real page with the content, when you have multiple URLs with the same content (like when you re-post your content somewhere else)

I don't normally do a #FollowFriday but I thought I would give a shoutout to some awesome people.

@ella_kane - put together the awesome group #WeAreNameless

@sheogorath - one of the main devs of #CodiMD

@WillMcIntosh - awesome guy to interact with

@eliaso - damn troll who keeps reporting me to me :blobglare: 😂


@sheogorath the problem is, it'll be the lowest common denominator. All sides of the French political community, for instance, believe in an even stronger Article 13 -- I am sceptical we could get a win there. The best thing is to stop it becoming law at all.

@amolith Keep in mind that search engines dislike double postings, so make sure to set a correct canonical link. Maybe it makes sense/is easier to mirror your plume instance to your blog ;)
