  • Mon, August 31 prompted by aaronpk dfn paraphrased from tantek
  • Mon, August 31 linky linky, see also

"Open" is a way of describing something as being more accessible: more accessible to more people, more accessible on more devices, etc.


  • The Mac is "more open" than Linux because it is more open to more people being able to productively use it, as opposed to requiring users meet a bar of becoming a Linux sysadmin.
  • Slack is "more open" than Hipchat because of the well-designed mobile, web, and desktop apps, as well as the ease of integrating external sources.

difference between a reply and a comment

Created by on August 31

  • Mon, August 31 prompted by GWG

The difference between a reply and a comment is that a reply is a post with its own permalink, shown on its own permalink, whereas comments are replies shown in the context of the original post, on the original post's permalink.

  • Wed, September 2 stub with a indieweb centric dfn, note js frameworks, see also

Performance typically refers to the speed, responsiveness, and initial load of a website. Poor silo performance can be a motivation for setting up, using, publishing to your own website.

Badly written Javascript, particularly poor use of frameworks, can cause bad site performance, perhaps an example of:

Created by on September 3

scrapbook is a CouchApp that replicates the functionality of the late Orkut#Scrapbook, allowing people to post and receive scraps in a decentralized way, with each person being responsible for hosting their own scrapbook instance.

scrapbook can be easily hosted in a CouchDB instance and accessed there directly (as in fiatjaf's scrapbook), or it can be embedded as an iframe into a personal webpage (as in fiatjaf's web page).

Although scrapbook works better if the person sending the scrap also has one scrapbook of their own (so them can claim the authenticity of their scraps), scrapbook is not an island, it works with anonymous scraps, named or unnamed, and will surely work with webmentions if the senders decide to allow CORS on their websites.


As spam in the Scrapbooks was the main cause of degradation of Orkut#See_Also, scrapbook takes some measures to counteract it:

  • It is a indie thing, so it will not be easy for a spammer to find available scrapbooks and spam them as it was with Orkut, a silo in which every click or randomly typed address would take you to a new personal profile;
  • It limits the number of scraps allowed to 1 every 100 seconds;
  • It requires a hashcash token to be submitted with every scrap sent;
  • It requires the person sending the scrap to go through a cumbersome process that first fetches a token data (changed every 100 seconds) with which to calculate the hashcash token, and only then to submit the token, so it mitigates automated spammers.

Moreover, I don't have any experience or knowledge about spamming, so this is mostly a guess and I'm open to suggestions. You can drop me a line at [1].--fiatjaf 18:16, 27 October 2014 (PDT)
