Embed media via a URL

You can put your name on the author line or not. Once you publish, you can only edit while your session is active in the browser. After that… it’s fixed in internet stone.

But you do get, for free, a place you can publish something at a public URL; this was my first play http://telegra.ph/SPLOT-is-a-sound-11-23.

It’s of interest to my current projects to have an easy way for someone to publish something at a link they can share. Yes, it’s not in your own domain, and it might disappear. But it could not be easier to write something online, and not give way your data.

      1. lol, yes the drum brake is amazing, invented in the 1900s for bicycles and cars! i totally recommend them for cool, temperate, rainy climates like Vancouver, Canada!

        i messed up though :-) I was thinking about:

        “In the beginning was the beat”
        I’ve often been inspired by:
        https://play.google.com/music/m/Tqp26zxtjectfmzrkob3fnsy6wu?t=The_Drum_Africa_To_America_-_Sounds_Of_Blackness
        gospel music like “Sounds of Blackness – The Drum Africa to America” from 1994. I’m not Christian or religious but I find the music inspirational even without any sort of belief! #ymmv

  1. This just came in very handy! I have an Argentine/Israeli/American friend who used to be a communard of mine who likes to do political rants in her third language, English, thinking she is good enough not to need an editor. She is also computer phobic and frustrated by not knowing how to get her rants to the public.

    Today, I got such a rant via email list with a request to “post” it. I don’t post much political content for reasons of my own, but I wanted to help her. Ah ha!

    I made her a web page and posted the URL back to the email list inviting them to use it for THEIR posting if her material,

    I neatly did a favor and sidestepped the request!
    Plus the site looks nice: http://tinyurl.com/hbhmatt

    Thanks again for this review.
