Hey folks, I'm here via @Matt Webb's latest blog post. I'm an indie consultant, blogger and digital tinkerer. A few of my digital bricolage experiments: • Electric tablesLibrary JSONQuotebacks I'm not really a developer - but I love hacking things together with Google scripts, Replit, bookmarklets and duct tape. I'm interested in exploring small databases and usable structured data, annotations and web based discussion. Based in Brooklyn, NY. / @tomcritchlow

I've enjoyed your website on a number of occasions. 🙂

Curious, what came out of Library JSON? And, related, would Wikidata be a starting point for an open book index?

@Denny Vrandečić Library JSON has had lots of interest and some keen remixes and extensions. Especially from Ton Zylstra (think I link to his work at the bottom of the post). My plan is to build a federated reader for library.json files but have simply not had time (and have not had the nodejs skills until recently)

@Jason Chan not actively working on Electric Tables right now.... but I just learned how to code in nodejs so at some point I'd love to take another crack at it with some server side stuff going on
