Read about it on my macroblog, and then look at the microblog itself.

Tricky setting it up on my own server, but done. But http doesn’t forward to https yet...

@admin I’m assuming you’re working on allowing us to comment.  Says I must be logged in.

@mutchler Well, I'm not sure that's ever going to change. Too much spam to allow unlogged-in commenting.

@admin I understand, but there wasn’t a method to “login”.  I see there is now, just need to request an ID now.  Thanks

@mutchler Yes, I should move that and other stuff into the (currently unused) top-of-page hamburger menu.

Doesn't WordPress have something called "trackback" that informs a cited source when it has been quoted on another blog? For example, if I shared a post of yours on my blog, then you'd get notification of this on your blog. I wonder if this could be extended/modified to enable the equivalent of Twitter retweets and even comments. For example, if I quote your post on my blog with further text, maybe that constitutes the equivalent of a Twitter reply. Thoughts?

@darenwelsh Yes, I thought of that. But what we really need is a different protocol, since a trackback really isn't precisely the same as a reply, and a string of trackbacks doesn't add up to a thread.

Also, is there an open source code repo for this project? I'm not a great programmer but I might be able to contribute.
