Stephen's Notebook (stephenpieper.net)
I’m very happy with paired Sonos Play:1 speakers for my streaming needs. The Play:1’s really shine when paired. Amazon Echo integration could be better but it’s good enough. I look forward to some balanced Apple HomePod reviews but I’m pretty sure I won’t be buying one.

I’m testing webmention replies on my own post because they don’t seem to be appearing elsewhere.

What's the problem? (Jeremy Cherfas)
Over at Scripting News, Dave Winer says: Every blog should have a Subscribe button. In an open ecosystem this is a problem, a problem that silos don't have. Which is the advantage Twitter (a silo) has over the open web. I guess I'm not smart enough to see what that problem might be.

I see what you mean.The wording is confusing. Could he mean that blogs should have a Subscribe button but in an open ecosystem many don’t and so readers pass them over for Twitter?
