Liked Simple Location 3.6.0 Released by David ShanskeDavid Shanske (David Shanske The Definitive Location)
There is a new update to Simple Locations which adds some new features. A query option for Micropub was added in a prior version and adjusted in this one.

Liked Underlines Are Beautiful by Adrian Roselli (Adrian Roselli)
Underlines, the standard, built-in signifier of hyperlinks, the core feature of the web, are beautiful. This is objectively true.

What if users could be sure they wouldn't be annoyed by websites after they grant permission to receive notifications?
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.
Liked State of the Social Reader by an author
Last weekend during the Berlin IndieWeb Camp, Aaron Parecki gave a brief overview of where he/we is/are concerning the ‘social reader’. This is of interest to me because since ever I have been reading RSS, I’m doing by hand what he described doing more automatically.
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.
