Connecting social sites

1 min read

I'm having a little trouble connecting all the social sites (Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, etc.) to this POSSE. I am able to create the apps on the respective sites, and get a user key and secret from them into Known, but after I do when I attempt to connect to the social sites I get a "resource unknown" error from Known every time. 

I'm noting that the callback urls are in the form - maybe this is an nginx meets mod_rewrite issue? 




We're live! Thanks to Mike 'bear' Taylor for helping me configure this instance!


I've got two projects for my day off tomorrow: setup Known on my server and make a lasagna from scratch. Might bake some bread, too.

Oh, and one more thing. Around 12:01am I guess I'll try to buy an iPhone 6+.

Inside Apple’s Live Event Stream Failure, And Why It Happened: It Wasn’t A Capacity Issue

It's true that Apple's live stream of the Phone 6 reveal was a mess, but I'm not sure I agree it's due to the way the Live page was coded. Worth a read for one man's (informed) theory, though.

Next time, Apple, hire someone who knows what they're doing. Maybe the very competent folks who manage the iTunes Festival. Those streams are amazing!

I appreciate the ease of the hosted site at - but I do have my own server, so I think I'll give it a shot over at It's not working yet, but stay tuned. 



Tenet #1 of the Indie Web: you need to host your own stuff. And so I am now withknown! (Tune in TWiG on Wednesday to meet Ben and Erin, the folks behind Withknown.)
