I realized that looking at your profile, where you have an @ your own server. This ain’t your grandfather’s social network, is it.
i don’t care if twitter is down tho cause I just use my website to post stuff! #IndieWeb #ownyourdata
I'm thinking of how to pull my Google Maps Timeline data in a machine-readable format. I want a GPS tracker project like @aaronpk's!
also I need a nickname cache and interface for posting those checkin spots! #itches
So, I'm migrating my YouTube subscriptions to Microsub, thanks to YouTube's RSS support. I think that when I make my own IndieWeb reader, I'll special-case YouTube posts by adding a YouTube embed inside of them. Or maybe by downloading the video with yt-dl and offering it as a u-video. It'll also serve as an archive... but my HDD would explode!
This isn't how the internet is supposed to work. As we continue to consolidate on a few big mail services, it's only going to become more difficult to start new servers.
