Request for federated blog software rec's
So is there some good federated blogging software yet?
I'm starting a new blog, content for the next few months is lined up
I was gonna do a standard self-hosted Wordpress install, but I'm feeling frisky and want to try something different
I want to love the fediverse, but I'm still looking for the place where open-source techies hang out. As always, the hard part with federated systems is discovery, though https://fediverse.network/ does help quite a bit.
I ported over all Medium posts to the new blog! https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2018/06/if-you-could-edit-tweets/
I know I still need to add sharing buttons below the content but I'm tired. It should look fine on mobile now, too
@gingerrroot I couldn't agree more. The main downtown library branch where I live literally hired social workers to do outreach with the homeless population in the building. Nothing pushy, but just being there to help if people wanted to reach out. It was controversial, because that's not the job of the library and it obviously meant gov't and other agencies were failing to provide a needed service, but it seemed to help people. I'm not sure if they still do it, though.
libraries are such an important space
not only for free information, but especially for at risk populations and homeless populations
they offer free or very cheap internet access (which allows for finding resoucres, job applications, etc), free access to information, bathrooms, often places have refreshments for relatively cheap as well, etc. etc.
wanting to make public libraries obsolete is classist and just an incorrect viewpoint tbh
If I unfollowed you today on one or another of my accounts it’s just because I was seeing too many repeats on my various timelines and it was getting kinda annoying to scroll through to find the stuff I hadn’t already read on the TL of my other account. So I’m trying to follow people from one account instead of several. Since I read TLs of each frequently I should still see everyone’s toots!
Now I'm working hard on co-facilitating a four-day workshop on teaching and learning in philosophy, aimed at grad students and new faculty in Greensboro, North Carolina (this is the only info on it online): https://philosophyteachers.org/cfa-2018-aapt-seminar/
These are pretty different but both really interesting to work on!
I have news! I will start as Academic Director of the Centre for Teaching, Learning & Technology at the University of British Columbia July 1! I’m currently Deputy Academic Director there.
Really excited and also a bit nervous but mostly excited! This is a fantastic centre with amazing people.
Sorry for the Birdsite, but here’s an official post: https://twitter.com/UBC_CTLT/status/1001162531862466565
The website for the 2-day workshop I'm doing next week on open educational practices is shaping up. Still working on slides.
