The IndieWeb plugin adds a few semantic things to the user profile in WordPress and acts as a launch platform for …

Odd Webmention Behaviour

I see a bit of odd behaviour with Webmentions, Semantic Linkbacks and WordPress comments. There are five responses in this thread which started with a post from my blog that that was syndicated to micro.blog. Three of the responses show up under the original blog post. However, two show up under my Webmentions collection page.…

Private Posts

Replied to Lurking, Twitter, The Commons, and Private Posts by Chris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)

But as I think about these read posts, lurking, and being more civil on the internet, I have a new itch for some functionality I’d like to add to my website. I very frequently use my website as a digital commonplace book to collect links of things I’ve read, watched, and listened to. I’ll collect quotes, highlights, and even my own marginalia. As I mentioned above, my read posts sometimes have comments, and quite often those comments are really meant just for me and not for the author of the original post. In many cases, when my comments may be too egregious, sensitive, or perhaps even insulting to the original author, I’ll make these posts private so that only I can see them on my site. Of course when they’re private, no notifications are sent to the site at the other end of the line.

Sometimes I would like to be able to send a read notification to the site, but also keep my commentary privately to myself. This allows me to have my notes on the piece and be highly critical without dragging down the original author or piece who I may not know well or the audience of that same piece which I haven’t properly lurked (in the positive community-based sense indicated above) to be as intelligently and sensitively commenting as I would otherwise like. Thus I’d like to build in some functionality so that I can publicly indicate I’ve read a piece (and send a notification), but also so that I can keep the commentary on my read private to either myself or a smaller audience.

I would like this sort of functionality to mark an article as read without sending any commentary to the originating link. I’m not concerned with privacy. Quite frankly, I’m of the opinion that if I want something to remain private, I don’t put it online. Some control will fail or I’ll make an error in…
