The dock of La Palma

The best excursions and holidays are the ones where apart from the planned, you allocate time for the unplanned, our you're willing to adapt.

We were certainly not planning to go out for whale and dolphin watching, but when we stopped at a restaurant on top of the cliffs we spotted a leaflet about Fancy21 and decided to get on it next day.

On our way towards the open sea we passed the surprisingly brutalist dock; this is what you see on the picture.

Cambridge night lamps

Sometimes, when you live in a beautiful city, you take it for granted, and overlook all the marvels around you. Unfortunately I barely ever wonder in the center of Cambridge during night, but at one day it all felt so perfect, still, quiet, and lightly foggy that despite the weekday, we took a stroll in the town. It was worth it; we even spotted an otter in the Cam.


Bookmarks, favs, likes - backfilling years of gaps

What do you do when you have years of hoarded internet on your computer and you want to put them into one place, to make it searchable? You put them on your website, while retroactively like, favorite, and bookmark them at their source.

Richard: Blogroll, as name is mostly dead - nowadays you probably want to call it following. If you think about it, it's the same thing, the difference is that following is more common within silos.

I'm thinking of displaying all my publicly followed entities - let it be blogs, Flickr accounts, Twitter handles, or indie websites - on a page, which would resemble an oldschool blogroll but would make more sense in 2017, in my opinion.

Sidenote: Dave is misunderstanding approaches and philosophy about IndieWeb regarding RSS: we encourage to build sites with microformats, so you don't need to maintain a separate file and format, but if you want to, sure, go ahead. However, in addition to a website itself, one would need an RSS, an Atom, and a JSON feed just to be backwards compatible and forward thinking - whereas just applying a few CSS classes to the relevant HTML elements could replace all the hassle. That is the reason why RSS - or anything similar - is not recommended within the indieweb community, but many of us still using them.
