"What's the url you're using to access myword.io." - 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

"Very interesting idea and I think quite doable. Let me take a look.." - Dave Winer

"I think that's a great idea." - 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
Re: We could have an open, user-controlled, ad-free Facebook - http://scripting.com/2015...
"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

"How did you jump to RSS?" - 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

"BTW, every time I write a piece like this, I get spammed by the "IndieWeb" people. They always say they're working on it, whatever it is, and drop a link to their site. That's the definition, imho, of spam." - Dave Winer
Re: We could have an open, user-controlled, ad-free Facebook - http://scripting.com/2015...
"What's your involvement with that project? I seriously doubt you'll do it, because you pick dumb fights over open formats. Your failure to embrace RSS makes it impossible, for example, for you projects to work with mine. Why are you so picky about who you'll work with?" - Dave Winer

Re: Help with Twitter metadata? - http://scripting.com/2015...
"It's an app, so it does a lot of things after it loads, but all of it from JS. If they run the JS, that would be really surprising. Why would they. I have not tried the regular summary card first." - Dave Winer
Re: Help with Twitter metadata? - http://scripting.com/2015...
"Yes, that is more or less what it seems to be saying. It shouldn't need to load anything but the one HTML file. The metadata is in there. That's why I put out this request for help. I don't know what steps to take. ;-)" - Dave Winer
Re: Bad experience at Alamo at SFO - http://scripting.com/2015...
"Actually that's the important point to remember. We're just talking about collision insurance. The max exposure is the value of the car. I actually self-insure for that." - Dave Winer
Re: Bad experience at Alamo at SFO - http://scripting.com/2015...
"Yup. That's why I'm skeptical when they say this isn't the company policy. Otherwise the only other explanation is that the guy is a sociopath." - Dave Winer

Re: Dynamic metadata in web pages - http://scripting.com/2015...
"The AngularJS example is exactly what I'm seeing. Somehow if we could communicate to FB that they need to ask the question another way. Send a message to the web page somehow..." - Dave Winer
Re: Dynamic metadata in web pages - http://scripting.com/2015...
"I actually thought about creating a stub, a very small static file that redirects to the liveblog reader, but has the right OG metadata. The problem with this approach is that the wrong URL will end up in the address bar, so that's what will be passed around. ANother possibility is framing but that's super ugly and it obfuscates the technology, and I want to be transparent. So I don't want to do that either." - Dave Winer
