Today’s the first official post on my new blog, the first new blog platform for me in this century, give or take. If you’ve getting this by email, click the title of the post to take a peek,
https://blog.edtechie.net/25yearsedtech/25-years-of-edtech-2008-eportfolios/d by a sound idea. The e-portfolio was a place to store all the evidence a learner gathered to exhibit learning, both formal and informal, in order to support lifelong learning and career dev...
You are correct. We need a web presence not portfolios. A bunch of us in the #IndieWeb community are also looking into how webmentions could be used to provide feedback on how students meet the criteria of a task while evaluating their evidence. It is basically a “badge” that is built on nothing more than reputation and permalinks.
We could take any number of the other responses in the sidebar annotations of the original article and do the same. Make poems, multimodal works, original essays inspired by them, collaborative how-to’s, etc.
I am also a little hesitant about citations defaulting to public domain. A lot of folks I know have started using https://github.com/kartikprabhu/fragmentioner to keep things in HTML on a domain THEY own, but wouldn’t work with PDF, and academics will need hyptothes.is for this use case.
What I want is to publish annotations on citations and have them syndicate to my blog. Right now I just embed an iframe of my feed but I want to OWN them locally.

I've been trying to follow your IndieWeb adventures, Greg. Can you point us to what you are up to? (I did see your note about how Edublogs seems resistant to integrating with IndieWeb feed .. or did I read that wrong?)
But Kevin you are one of the most #IndiewWeb people I know. I often hold you up as the standard of being #indie but using services like Google Sites or EduBlogger. It comes down to owning your content, controlling your identity. Having the technology to connect with the community is an important but distant third to the first two values.
Edublogs is a special version of WordPress. In order to ensure stability for users they do not allow too many plugins. You can add an h-card, which is like a business card, to your homepage, header or footer but that is about it.
We are going to organize a virtual IndieWebCamp for some time in August. We should see if @ncte wants to get involved at all.
So during my (ongoing) microformats crash course I have styled many citations. Writing an APA citation in html with proper markup take time. A lot of time when you write a lot of citations. While I would consider a canonical link back to to a piece listed or displayed on an author’s website as leg...
Often the wrong way. We went from an open web where everyone controlled where they published to a homogenized world of corporate silos where alogrithims influence what we read and thus what we write. Web 2.0 became a walled garden. True critical digital literacies must begin by taking back control of your identity.
tamed by power. Mowed down for convenience.
No one would walk this hills to see wild flowers
Now plucked, gone.
Genetically engineered and packaged and patented
Take this seed and we will plant it.
We know best
We provide the water, light.
Grow your seed. Blossom your network
Just don’t leave our walled garden
Everyone is here, its better we look the same.
Lovely blue flowers for all.
Here is the thing the next decade of digital writing would be best served if it looked like the digital writing of yesterday. Let's stick to html on domains students own. !(https://media1.giphy.com/media/EnVW9bXB94aw8/giphy.gif)
Drafting #IndieWeb Principles for the Rest of Us (jgregorymcverry.com) Yet to the audience I serve these set of core ideals can chase folks away for being too technical. So I wanted to remix them to see if I get develop the same principles for a non-technical crowd. Although I’ve been playing with...
Also I should interview you for the UX user story research I am doing around #IndieWeb WordPress..or we interview each other.
Not sure I like the generation label. Sounds too static. When folks explain it to me it makes sense but I get queasy again soon after.
