Hello Hi. I work on web standards and the indie web. I run trails at sunrise, practice yoga movement & philosophy, code & design my website, and write when I can. ๐Ÿ  ๐Ÿ“บ ๐Ÿ”ต ๐Ÿ’ฌ Contact ๐Ÿ‘ Tip Founder at IndieWeb โ† Member of IndieWeb Webring ๐Ÿ•ธ๐Ÿ’ โ†’ Founder at microformats.org Web Standards Lead at Mozilla CSS Working Group member at W3C BSCS & MSCS Stanford University


Holly, Nicole, anohter NovemberProject member, Jen, and Tantek outside the LBJ Library in Austin, Texas. Clear blue sky over the river in Austin Texas. The sun shining brightly in a clear sky over buildings above the river, and reflected in the river as well, in Austin Texas. Made it to @Nov_Project_ATX yesterday morning! Ran, worked out, and caught up with pal Holly who I havenโ€™t seen since she moved from SF, and Madison friends Jen and Nicole (who herself also moved to Austin). Ran back to downtown and the river afterwards, for a calm reflection(2), and sunrise over nearby buildings(3). #NP_ATX #traverbal #run #NovemberProject #runners #wakeUpTheSun #fromWhereIRun #optOutside #freeFitness #justShowUp #LBJLibrary #Austin #Texas #2020_052 #20200221 #laterGram #noFilter

@IndieWebCamp Austin, facilitating a session on All Things Photos. E.g. taking photos, curating, editing, posting. My incremental #indieweb #photo workflow: ๐Ÿ“ท take photos in the moment, but not post* ๐Ÿ–ผ curate photos, e.g. delete duplicates or non-HDR versions (or keep the non-HDR version if it was sharper, less blurry, or if the HDR versions had weird motion artifacts) โค๏ธ favorite photos, in the iOS Photos app, that I want to actually consider posting publicly, or perhaps uploading e.g. to a wiki โœ๐Ÿป edit photos, e.g. rotate & crop, especially favorited photos, to align the horizon, crop out extraneous/distracting things, etc. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป choose a favorited photo from that day as my main photo to post ๐Ÿ“ write a narrative caption based on that photo ๐Ÿ““ more photos: include more favorited photos if they make sense as part of the narrative, perhaps seek out more (non-favorited) photos to help illustrate the narrative ๐Ÿ“ฎ post that photo or multiphoto post (its own process) โ™ก unfavorite the photos I posted, except those I might want to view or show to friends later Iโ€™m looking to simplify my process where I can, as it often takes me up to half an hour to actually get from curating my photos to posting a particular (multi)photo post! *I donโ€™t post photos in the moment any more in order to stay present in whatever Iโ€™m actually doing IRL. Instead at "in between times" like standing in line, or on transit, I take incremental steps towards publishing photos.

As of yesterday: https://tantek.com/2020/052/t1/austin-building-pyramid-shape Iโ€™m over halfway thru my 100 days projects: * take a positive photo * post something positive sometimes posted the day after. More #100days projects: https://indieweb.org/100_days inspired by the100dayproject.com
