Audio, SoundCloud, and the Indieweb

nice ideas over there...also interested to self-host more audio bytes..
Known already support some stuff, but I'm concerned about huge files, and how it's going to impact by Known import/export backup, if with times I have to import huge backups files to relaunch my site on a new domain or even just move from current host to self-hosted vps again..

Hier je me suis retrouvé dans une petit Café Macha rue de Flandre, y'avait des gens, de la guitar, des chants et puis y'avais un laptop avec Ableton: j'ai adoré replonger dans la musique, jouer avec des samples, prendre des bouts d'audio sans aucune prétension et en faire quelque chose qui sonne bien, qui est écoutable voir même sympa a mettre en boucle :) je me suis rendu compte à quel point composer de la musique électronique ça me manque à mort, après tout c'est une partie de moi que j'ai mis de côté trop longtemps !

Les réseaux sociaux nous dirigent-ils ? - par @davanac

passage radio @davanac bien intéressante sur l'impact de la technologie sur nos perceptions, les médias, leur raison d'être, bref à écouter et matière à réfléchir par les temps qui court.

I think the first time I connected to the Internet it was the spring of 1998.
I was messing with old computers, MS-DOS, Win 3.1, Win98 Offline and I was offloading some money to buy my first 64k modem, after a few months I had the money and I went on to buy it. I got my first "Discovery line" a telecom line with a phone number just for Internet usage. I heard that famous blipping of the modem dialing the internet access number and suddenly I was online !

I remember the first time I noticed how much more interesting a computer was WHEN connected to the internet. I remember when the connection would fall and one had to dialup all over again. I remember when downloading movies, or a full audio album could take weeks, if not month if there was not enough seeds sharing it. I remember how much I learned Online, pretty much everything I use everyday, today, at my job, everything started with this tiny modem & this slow internet connection.

It was like opening the gate of a worldwide library where there was no limit of use, no limit of books you could read, no limits of new things to discover, new people to find, new cultures to absorb and new possibilities to imagine.

Suddenly my offline computer seemed so un-interesting. suddenly playing to open the computer tower just to see how it works wasn't that interesting anymore. what was interesting shifted Online for me.

Today it's and I don't Know what I would be today if it wasn't for the Internet.
coming from where I was coming, Internet sounded like Freedom, Knowledge, Power for everyone.

Since then I never stopped learning and hope to never stop !

@lindner I have been thinking about this and I think @withknown is using wavesurfer.js instead of the default HTML5 audio player on Pro sites. I also have one and its using wavesurfer.js while here (selfhosted known) the default audio player is the only way I know to embed audio on Known sites.

Ricardo Mendes

@lindner Hmmm i'm using self-hosted but my audio uploads appear like this maybe it's the cherwell theme...?

Ricardo Mendes

@lindner I'm curious on how you get the wavesurfer.js on this post to work @withknown
did you simply used the native audio upload? or is it some manual adaptation each time you produce a podcast, since this library is loaded with known by default?
