    The Block-Paved Path to Structured Data - Structured Content 2022 by @Maggie Appleton Despite its troubled past, structured and semantic data is actively used and useful across the web today. It improves our search results with rich visual previews. It helps researchers gather raw data for analysis and simulations. The only problem is we don’t have enough of it. The vast majority of data on the web is still unstructured. Without diving headfirst into unrealistic dreams of a fully machine-readable web, we can still seek ways to increase the amount of structured data out there. At HASH, we’re exploring how a relatively new but wildly popular interface pattern could help get us there: block-based editors. From Notion to WordPress Gutenberg, we’ve seen a surge in editing environments that give you a set of modular ‘blocks’ you can combine into rich interactive documents. Then without writing (or even knowing) any code, you can publish them to the open web. Come find out why we believe the path to structured data is paved with these user-friendly blocks.

    End-user programming is a red herring: We need to focus on materiality, what some disparage as mere "side effects." The goal is to enable others to feel the agency and power that comes when the world ceases to be immutable.

    Gilad Bracha shared this on twitter and I think its a nice perspective spending some time on "Local First" Software - what does it mean:

    Another good piece which blends quite nicely with the "local first" theme from above but bringing it into relationship with the web3 narrative: https://www.wired.com/story/web3-blockchain-decentralization-governance/

    Does anyone know of a web browser where instead of switching between tabs you can smoothly/continuously transition between websites? E.g. similar to the Eagle Mode software (see video), but for the web: where when you zoom into a link, the link grows into a website, and when you zoom out, you smoothly return to the previous web page. Or like a digital whiteboard (e.g. conceptboard.com), where you can put thumbnails of websites on a whiteboard, and then zoom in a thumbnail to open the website and zoom out to return back to the whiteboard.
