      mentioned by Jim Groom as one of the most popular wiki software available on Github

      BookStack is a simple, self-hosted, easy-to-use platform for organising and storing information

    1. The term independent is considered more appropriate than self, as in self-hosted, considering the latter can give the wrong impression that it only refers to situations where the owners of a website decided to physically host it on hardware that is physically controlled and managed by them.

      This idea of independently hosted versus self-hosted comes up frequently in IndieWeb chat. The IndieWeb doesn't generally participate in the "purity test" of requiring full self-hosting as a result.

    2. Projects like the Open Journal System, Manifold or Scalar are based on a distributed model that allow anyone to download and deploy the software (Maxwell et al., 2019), offering an alternative to the commercial entities that dominate the scholarly communication ecosystem.

      Might Hypothes.is also be included with this list? Though it could go a bit further toward packaging and making it more easily available to self-hosters.

      For those interested in doing it for edtech/classroom settings, it might be worth looking at the Hometown fork of Mastodon: https://github.com/hometown-fork/hometown/wiki/Local-only-posting

      The link is to a special feature that most Mastodon instances don't have: local only posting which would allow students a level of privacy and separation from the rest of the federated timeline if they choose.

    1. The implication for instructors is that it is important to to know when intervention is needed in online CSCL and to what degree.

      Question of hosting - how much/little facilitation is vital here. The paper recommends regular monitoring of online activities and intervening when clearly required. I wonder if the use of sync Stand-ups to address issues IRT would also help given the issues with attempting to collaborate async?

      The instructor should play an active role in the collaborative process. He or she should be proactive in monitoring and intervening in collaborative activities (Chapman & van Auken, 2001; Hansen, 2006) and should ensure that the group works effectively (Tideswell, 2004; Brindley, Walti, & Blaschke, 2009) through mechanisms for assistance, feedback, and evaluation.

    2. Skill in learning collaboratively means knowing when and how to question, inform, and motivate one’s teammates, knowing how to mediate and facilitate conversation, and knowing how to deal with conflicting opinions (McManus & Aiken, 1995).

    1. Audius is trying to avoid SoundCloud’s copyright issues by not hosting the user-uploaded content itself. Its open-source protocol, built on blockchain, means that the responsibility of hosting and making uploaded content available is spread out among people who register as node operators.

    1. Who owns and controls it?

      This is worth discussion. Specifically the ownership part and it may be surprising to uncover how little control there has been and how that is changing in 2021 as ISPs and hosting companies refuse or welcome radical platforms and groups, https://www.npr.org/2021/02/15/968116346/after-weeks-of-being-off-line-parler-finds-a-new-web-host

    1. It’s kind of like putting a SIM card in a cell phone – the SIM card tells that phone, “Hey, you work with this particular phone number now.” Just like you can switch out a phone’s SIM card and make the phone work with a different phone number, your domain can be set to work with a different web hosting service.

    1. Handling all these requests costs us considerably: servers, bandwidth and human time spent analyzing traffic patterns and devising methods to limit or block excessive new request patterns. We would much rather use these assets elsewhere, for example improving the software and services needed by W3C and the Web Community.

    1. If you want a fast website without breaking the bank, go for GitHub Pages. It’s completely free and super fast. It does, however, require you to open source your site. If that’s not doable, CloudFront is a good alternative, but its price depends on how much bandwidth you push around. For most personal sites, CloudFront won’t cost more than a couple of dollars per month. The same thing goes for Google Cloud Storage.

      Advice for a personal use regarding the static webhosting benchmark (2020 May)

    2. The best all-around performer is AWS CloudFront, followed closely by GitHub Pages. Not only do they have the fastest response times (median), they’re also the most consistent. They are, however, closely followed by Google Cloud Storage. Interestingly, there is very little difference between a regional and multi-regional bucket. The only reason to pick a multi-regional bucket would be the additional uptime guarantee. Cloudflare didn’t perform as well I would’ve expected.

      Results of static webhosting benchmark (2020 May):

      1. AWS CloudFront
      2. GitHub Pages
      3. Google Cloud Storage

    1. Mozilla does not permit extensions distributed through https://addons.mozilla.org/ to load external scripts. Mozilla does allow extensions to be externally distributed, but https://addons.mozilla.org/ is how most people discover extensions. The are still concerns: Google and Microsoft do not grant permission for others to distribute their "widget" scripts. Google's and Microsoft's "widget" scripts are minified. This prevents Mozilla's reviewers from being able to easily evaluate the code that is being distributed. Mozilla can reject an extension for this. Even if an extension author self-distributes, Mozilla can request the source code for the extension and halt its distribution for the same reason.

      Maybe not technically a catch-22/chicken-and-egg problem, but what is a better name for this logical/dependency problem?

    1. The solution will be to go for serverless functions. This means that instead of occupying a server completely, it will only use the server capacity when the function needs to run.

      Serverless as a cheap back end option

    2. My favourites are Zeit and Netlify. They are quite similar in the features they provide: continuous deployment, around 100GB of bandwidth per month, and a built-in CDN. Another benefit is that they both provide the option of serverless functions, as we will see in the next section. This simplifies the number of services we need to integrate for our entire stack.

      Good website hosting:

      Zeit or Netlify

      (CD + 100 GB of bandwith / month + built-in CDN)

    1. Something else that will never change is the right to freely self-host Matomo On-Premise; this way you can always host Matomo Analytics on your own servers without having to pay for it.
    1. How do you leverage browser cache when Google’s very own Analytics.js has it’s expiry time set to 2 hours? How do you minimize DNS requests when Google advices you to copy their tracking code, linking to an externally hosted Javascript file?If that isn’t bad enough already, Google’s advice is to avoid hosting the JavaScript file locally. And why? To ensure you get access to new features and product updates.
    2. Why should I host analytics.js locally?The Complete Analytics Optimization Suite for WordPress gives you the best of both worlds. After activation it automagically downloads the latest version of analytics.js from Google’s servers, places the necessary tracking code in your WordPress theme’s header and keeps the local Javascript file up-to-date using an adjusted version of Matthew Horne’s update analytics script and wp_cron(). This way you can minimize DNS requests, leverage browser cache, track your visitors and still follow Google’s recommendation to use the latest features and product updates.

    1. We can definitely observe that (memory) size matters! More memory dramatically reduces duration.

      768-1024MB is optimal, and has diminishing returns

    1. People want to own their data and their namespace but they don’t want to run servers to do it. What’s the solution? Separate the elements. Treat your personal server as a BDS (Big Dumb Server), there to answer API calls and file requests.  Move the admin interfaces up towards the client, and maintain them centrally the way apps are maintained. Eventually, move the presentation layer towards the client too, allowing readers power over how they consume the data on your server.
      • Database:
        • provided by host
        • general purpose
        • accessible by http or https API
      • Database administration:
        • Native app or Web interface making privileged API calls.
        • GUI file browser for web server folders and files.
      • Presentation Layer
        • Pull pages (or other data) from multiple databases.
        • Customizable: the data you want, in the way you want to display it or otherwise use it.

    1. Part 3, Pressbooks dependencies:

      I skipped this section for now, wanting to just have my book(s) on the Web for starters. Looks like we are definitely chaning .php files below though.

    2. Navigate to: My Books → YOUR_SITE → Dashboard

      I believe the names of these categories has changed in the current UI: "My Catalog" has replaced "My Books."

    3. Part 1, WordPress generic:

      But for starting another WP install, skip this section entirely if following my lead, enabling Reclaim/Instrallatron's automatic configuration of multisite at installation.

    4. Pressbooks works with PHP 5.6.x and WordPress 4.4.1.

      I was working in 5.5 but Tim Owens quickly allowed me the ability to upgrade within the cPanel.

      Image Description

    5. Network Enable "Pressbooks."

      All I did of the above was download the PB plugin. You can "Network activate" from the plugin installed page.

    6. Do not install Pressbooks on an existing WordPress blog -- create a new WordPress install instead.

      This is pretty important. But it's easy to add a second WP install in Reclaim's Installatron. In fact, you can select "multisite" in the process and skip all of Part 1 below, including editing php files.

    1. Learn to take ownership and control over the content you put on the web instead of handing it to third-party publishers.

      Such an admirable principle/mission. I wonder though whether this will ever be part of a larger cultural turn? Or even if it will be a major part of 21st century digital pedagogy?...

    1. You can expect to pay 50 cents a day. Or try DIY. This is where you will own your content.

      Rent to own?

      There is no ownership while we rent.

      We either own or increase our freedom of movement in and out of rental environments...or both.
