Re: Me + Fargo = <img title=':heart:' alt=':heart:' class='emoji' src='http://fargo.io/code...' align='absmiddle' /> at First Type - http://sarahpressler.smallpict.com/2015...
"I think there's so much upside here Sarah. It's a very nice piece of software, with a real advantage over other blogging systems. The whole site is in one document. It really works. I use it to edit Scripting News, and there are a lot of posts on that site. We need everything. Better docs that hold people's hands, a users' conference, community support. I'm a programmer, I love digging holes. But I also love it when people use my stuff. I know what you're able to do. And your experience with WordPress is super important." - Dave Winer

"Kevin, it looks great on Chrome/Mac. I've attached a screen shot. If this isn't what it looks like on your system, please provide details, and a screen shot. Thanks! :-)" - Dave Winer

"I don't know what's going to happen, but I do plan to evolve the format, adding to it, and using it in other contexts myself." - Dave Winer

"I would suggest posting a note on the River4 list and provide as much info as you can. I'm the only one watching the comments here, and I haven't got the time to dig into this with you." - Dave Winer

Re: Fargo 1.69 -- connecting to myword.io - http://fargo.io/blog...
"Okay I added a string replace from one domain to the other. publicUrl = string.replaceAll (publicUrl, "dl.dropbox.com", "dl.dropboxusercontent.com"); It seems to work here. I don't like putting things like that into shipping code. But let's see what happens. ;-)" - Dave Winer

"Could you try this url in place of the one we generate. http://myword.io/?url=https://... Notice the "dl=1" ending. That's the official dropbox-approved way of forcing a download. Please let me know if that works.. Also what browser and OS are you using?" - Dave Winer

"That's nice, because the gist editor is a good editor. It's also good at editing JSON. Hmmm." - Dave Winer

"Matt & Phil, I have a connection between my outliner and myword.io. Here are the steps in the editorial process. 1. I write an essay. 2. I add a "description" attribute so that there's a description in the myword.io rendering. This is optional. 3. I click the printer icon in the left margin (something new). It generates the JSON from the outline and uploads it to my S3 folder, thus giving it a public URL. 4. It asks if I want to view it in myword.io (this is necessary to get around some limits of the browser, if I try to just open it, the browser thinks I;m a rogue site opening a popup window). 5. If the user clicks OK, a new tab opens, like this. http://myword.io/?url=http://l... 6. You can view the same text in my liveblog. http://reader.liveblog.co/dave... BTW, this is the application that drove me to write myword.io in the first place, I needed a place to prototype a nice-looking rendering for essays. Then I realized I could make it work with anything, not just my outliner. As I..." - Dave Winer

"Yes, quite similar. Theirs seems more general purpose, where myword.io offers a fixed format. Otherwise lots of the same choices. jQuery, Bootstrap." - Dave Winer

"I'm going to hook this up to Fargo, where all these concepts are fully developed. You can include one outline in another. The nodetype is "include" and the url attribute points to the outline that's to be included. It can be anywhere on the web, in a standard format, OPML." - Dave Winer

"Matt, it was an email conversation. I just found it and sent a copy via email. I don't have a problem with making it public, but I didn't want to do it without your consent. Today, it's not a big deal. Maybe next year it will be again. Ultimately I did have to do a whole new blogging environment to get the ability to store source code and rendered content." - Dave Winer

"Tom, by reading my blog you are showing you are innovative and an original thinker. No sarcasm. Thank you for the encouraging words. I don't believe there's no way to be innovative. I just think that's the mood of our times. That the individual doesn't play much of a role in his or her own life." - Dave Winer

"It isn't. Everyone has a load of examples where it didn't work, but overlook the ones where it did. For example, how did Instagram get such a huge user community?" - Dave Winer

"I should have added to my piece on the liveblog that people always say they read the piece. Maybe they did. My point was that I was surprised we don't have a meme, acronym or hashtag to describe the idea. That's all. We obviously see the KKK vs ISIS thing differently. That's the moral of the Internet. So much of what it's about is that very simple idea. We look at the world differently. After a while that isn't an interesting discussion, again, my own feeling, YMMV. (A great acronym, btw.)" - Dave Winer

"Chuck suppose there's a restaurant in the neighborhood that serves a really great chocolate layer cake that I love. But it costs too $100 a slice. I think I can make it for $6 a slice. I don't see what I'm missing. Sure the restaurant makes $100, but I'm just a customer. Why do I care about the $94?" - Dave Winer

"I don't like blog posts as comments. I only read the first paragraph. App.net wasn't a good experiment, because they didn't allow federation, didn't even read and write RSS feeds. It didn't begin to have the potential of the kind of system I describe in the headline. They were trying to hold on to the ability to impose a business model, and for that there had to be lock-in. There was some clever marketing there, but ultimately there was no good reason for developers to build on it and therefore nothing interesting to draw users to it. Same with Ello. Suggest you use your blog." - Dave Winer
