Austin Kleon talks about daily blogging as being related to the ideas of stock and flow, and I think that really gets at what you’re talking about here. I love thinking about it this way, the way little ideas become big ones and how much easier it is to iterate, flesh out, and track our own thinking when everything is in one place.
I know when I’m being submentioned.
Chris, I’m glad to hear that my read posts are both heartwarming and providing useful data. I think they reveal as much about how I read as they reveal about anything else. As you may have guessed, I’m working my way down your IndieWeb research page, with some forays into your most recent posts here and there. I saw this one because I subscribed to your firehose in Inoreader.
I like having paths to follow, and it’s been inordinately helpful to be able to follow the ones you’ve laid out. Thank you for all the sharing you do!
Ahhhh! *flappy hands*
Google Books exports highlights and marginalia to a Google Doc titled Notes from “Book Title.” The document includes the highlighted text or the note and a hyperlinked page number. Because it’s in this format, I imagine it wouldn’t be too hard to extract the data via copy paste or maybe even downloading the doc as HTML. I expect the CSS would need some massaging, and obviously this is still a siloed start, but it’s something.
I can’t wait to see what I come up with, either! I’ve been trying to track down other keynotes via the IndieWeb YouTube channel to see what kind of thing people generally do. Any suggestions, either for topic or examples? (Right now I’m brainstorming something about the IndieWeb as a Connected Learning environment, but I’m not sure if that’s the kind of thing that makes sense.)
I started implementing separate RSS feeds for different types of content a while back but just set them up to appear in the content search in readers like Feedly. They look great. Thanks for the walkthrough, Chris!
@MagpieLibrarian I genuinely thought this was deliberate.
