I clicked on the link for Jeremy’s presentation, only to be directed to his book on this subject, which I will promptly be buying. I spent a little time looking through the A Book Apart catalog and didn’t realize that had so much cool stuff. And yes, as a user, I would really appreciate not being annoyed on a constant basis by websites I’ve given permission to notify me. I gave Slack permission to do that on the old computer and that was one of the first things I didn’t set up on the new one.
I’ve only dipped my toes into the topic of social readers. I definitely believe they are the best way forward for RSS and the Indieweb in general, but I’m so used to the current way of handling RSS as a consumer that it’s taking me a whhile to make the jump between traditional RSS and social reading without the middle man of a social network.
I’m looking forward to listening to Tech was supposed to be society’s great equalizer what happened? after ID24 is over, and I’ve noted the books mentioned so I can hopefully grab coppies in an accessible format.
