Thanks - finally signed up. Is there a way to search your own books? I only see a listing feature…

I’m asking because I just started a book in my to-read list (imported from Goodreads) and when I search for the book there’s two instances (unfortunate duplicate), but neither of them seem to already be connected to my account, so I’m not sure how to mark the book as started (while keeping my data well kempt)


I also share the privacy concerns - it’d be too high a bar of publicly identifying yourself to really encourage conversation (and then I’d be worried about the perhaps non-technical people who would accidentally use it not realizing how their voice is PII).

I’m intrigued by the idea from a UX/convenience perspective though. Maybe you can get the best of both worlds (pseudo anonymity + speak-to-participate UX) if you “salt and hash” the audio consistently? That is, every user ID would have their voice altered in a consistent but irreversable way, that’s also not vulnerable to some future rainbow table~esque attack.


Matrix.org chat apps have supported it for a while (and is “FOSS puritan” whatever that loaded crap means).


I use gnome (because otherwise there’s so much functionality I have to think about, rather than get for free out of the box, on my laptop), and I think that means discussion talking about picking “window manager” just don’t apply to me (eg)? That is, while I can find an extension to change how windows are managed there isn’t really a clean separation between DE and WMs for gnome users.

I’m happy to be corrected though, and have an ELI5 moment.


users can always search for it if they want.

Fwiw, this is super difficult for books in my experience.

Definitely better to encourage linking up an amazon than have a proliferation of content on this community where one can’t figure out (now or in the future) exactly what the post was really about.


Oh I’m interested too if you find out
