Hey all, I'm mucking about a bit with LDFlex, and had the following question. I'm using
@solid/query-ldflex to create a
Like activity like this:
This works well when
target is a simple URL. However, I was wondering if it was possible to
Like a full object as well using
@solid/query-ldflex, e.g. an

for example, if I offer an online image processing service with my proprietary image compression, processing, etc algorithm, which currently executes in my cloud server, where would this code execute in Solid, in user's pod or my server itself?
The solid philosophy is to do as much as possible in the client. If that is not possible, you could do it on a specialized server, which is solid compatible or at least able to store the end result back to the users POD. In my opinion describing such APIs with Hydra does fit well into the Solid ecosystem. @naqvijafar91
@Mitzi-Laszlo not at this stage. I’ll have to do some work on presentation materials, that provides a broader ecosystems ‘concept overview’, as to incorporate AR (Augmented Reality - the web of ‘space’ / real-world), Web of Things, Naturalised interfaces and the relationship between interactivity and various ‘AI’ (inc. media processing, signatures, etc.) considerations; perhaps also, supply chains (ie: food), health, ‘smart cities’, ‘commons informatics’ (inc. open-data), societal systems, etc.
It’s only really at web-scale does this vastly more sophistocated solutions framework, start to demonstrate the attentive purpose, of doing things that are more complex than json/graphql.
I remember BBLFish discussing it as an objective project sometime ago.
One idea about how the UX might work in my mind, thought about the ability to expand upon the mind-mapping type of interfaces, but perhaps, introduce 3d - which has been done for mindmapping, but not for ontology work.

Do you have a pointer to cite?
@mediaprophet I would so love to work on something like that, the problem is that I dont have the juice to do much myself. I still have good ideas and I can write code, but to keep going I need collaborators. I don't think I'm so different in that either. People are inspired in a group setting. That doesn't mean freeloading either. I read somewhere that the average shelf life of a coder is 5 years. So where do they go after that? Do they die, or maybe lose their minds? I don't think so. There are a lot of coders who are not students but are doing other things and who have some time, just not full time, to contribute. As the price of coding, just like music or other arts, gets driven down this is the case. But here's the thing about coders. They have to be invited. Not sneered at or told to wait until revelations come from the inner sanctum. Not just expected to show up like fraternity pledges. That doesn't cost much if you don't insist on approving every line of code and you settle instead for accepting what works. That is maybe hard to do but necessary. If a space can be created for a group of unvetted coders to do their thing but with some help with goals and benchmarks set in a sincere manner by the vetted ones, it could maybe lead to some productive outcomes. The key I think is usefulness, you will get more volunteers if their stuff is used. How do you make use of unevaluated code from unevaluated volunteers without spending much on evaluators? There should be a way. Personally I think web components could be very helpful, and maybe some innovative processes are needed too.
Full disclosure: I used to be tag42git on github but in a fit of pique I deleted that account so I have switched identities, same gender though. I'm still tag42git on the forum.
