Watched Mad Max: Fury Road

An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There's Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

Sharing what I watch...

1 min read

As I get deeper into the IndieWeb, I've been loving exploring more ways to share and publish my activities. Having a timeline that includes where I have been, what I've been eating and drinking, my recipesย and reviews, along with photos, and social interactionsย helps me remember where I was and what I was doing on any given day.

Last night, I had trouble sleeping, so I decided to attack a new problem. I'm a big movie enthusiast, and enjoy collecting and watching great films. I decided that tracking what I'm watching would be a fun and useful way to enrich my activity stream.

I'd like to introduce Watching, aย plugin for the Known CMSย that I use for running this site. Using the plugin, I can publish a record of which movie or TV show I just watched. Earlier this evening, I watched a few minutes of Mad Max: Fury Road, which I absolutely adored, and it's been logged on my site.

Better yet? I've written experimental support for Plex webhooks, which create these records automatically on my site whenever I click or tap "play." How fun is that?

 
 
 
 

Wow, https://github.com/cleverdevil/Known-Watching represents my fifth plugin for @withknown! Fun :)

 
 
 
 

Great post, @chrisaldrich! Thanks for summarizing so nicely why is important.

Excellent talk with @fkarlitschek of @nexcloud this AM re: enabling people to own their own data!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

@stream.boffosocko.com/profile/chrisaldrich awesome! Can't wait to see your Read plugin :) Both Watching and Read should potentially integrate with my Reviews plugin, too!

 
 
 

@benwerd people whinge about funding Planned Parenthood, but are OK with paying for bombs. Sigh...

 

Aaron Parecki on Twitter: "Micropub PR published today! ๐ŸŽ‰ https://t.co/B4se7jOPPr This is the last step before REC status! We'd love your impl reports and feedback!"

 
 

I think, for now, a standalone plugin is best. I think, over time, it'll make sense to start consolidating some of these things into a common library of plugins. Many of my plugins are extremely similar in their implementation.

I actually think that it'd be cool for the Watching, Read, and Food plugins to detect if the Reviews plugin is installed, and to enable publishing a record of the action *along* with a review (two posts in one go!).

So many ideas, so little time.

 
 
 

Watched Moana

In Ancient Polynesia, when a terrible curse incurred by Maui reaches an impetuous Chieftain's daughter's island, she answers the Ocean's call to seek out the demigod to set things right.
