Replied to Fragmentions for Better Highlighting and Direct References on the Web (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
Fragmention is a portmanteau word made up of fragment and mention (or even Webmention), but in more technical terms, it’s a simple way of creating a URL that not only targets a particular page on the internet, but allows you to target a specific sub-section of that page whether it’s a photo, paragraph, a few words, or even specific HTML elements like
or on such a page. In short, it’s like a permalink to content within a web page instead of just the page itself.
Chris, you and Aaron Davis, often write about concepts that I don’t quite understand. But I want to. Do you have recommendations for literature — online and offline — that I can read to learn more? Or shall I just wait for your book?
