    There’s an item on Hacker News today about Slack (and the discussion is generally about how bloody annoying it is and how much of a blackhole for information). Someone asks^1 if anyone’s used WordPress’ P2 theme, which is something I tried many years ago and quite enjoyed.

    But I’ve always wondering what the Indieweb version of that would be like: the distributed, RSS-based, Webmention-updated news feed of what people are working on. Replies and all. I guess it’s a bit too clunky, because the idea seems pretty obvious.

    I was just recently thinking that I’d like to move my web server to Linode, but now they’ve been bought out I guess I’ll wait a year or so and see how things turn out!

    I was reading about the idea of writing “public stand-up updates” the other day, and it sounds sort of annoying but also probably quite useful in an open source project. Nothing private is usually said in a stand-up, but it’s nice to not have to censor oneself. Then again, sharing information is of more use when it’s with more (interested) people. Certainly, I think writing a regular update of what is being worked on in an open source project is a good idea! In fact, even if nothing is being worked on. Maybe that’s no longer a stand-up…
