Late to this, but at age 70, interest remains in using TXP.

At 70 you are young!. I re-did two sites to make them responsive when I hit 75. Now, a few years later, I am out lounging in the internetz pasture or riding.

My hero is a bit older: Vladas Drupas at his 93th year — still a master of aerobatics!

In related news: The Automattic “AI” thing

So Automattic, the company financing the development of the Open Source WordPress blogging platform is in talks to sell user generated data to Midjourney and OpenAI.

Re: Is there still a need for a "small content management system"?

That is indeed an intriguing move by Automattic, and one I can’t really see having a rosy end.

Textpattern won’t be going there. Ever. And not just because it’s no secret I dislike AI at present.

Not nice, not nice at all, Automaticc.

…and it seems that this not only affects sites hosted by wordpress[.]com, but also the many self hosted WP sites using Jetpack if I follow the story correctly on that poorly threaded mastodon account

Greed is a wonderful thing…

OTOH, Donncha Ó Caoimh tries to calm the waves.

Nevertheless, I think it would be worth considering to emphasise somewhere (wherever Textpattern is mixing with the unwashed masses these days, I don’t really know) that Textpattern is one of the last volunteer-driven non-profit publishing tools of our days.

So, it might be an opt-in affair after all? The original 404media story when read in full (and after its update to include what seems a statement by Automaticc) implies as much. That
would be less bad. But this is in need of much clarity.

I will need to find back my mastodon account details for that.

Nope. On a newly published site, with as little interaction with the site’s settings as possible, the relevant option in the site settings looks like this: WordPress.com General Settings: Prevent third-party sharing for example.wordpress.com  This option will prevent this site’s content from being shared with our licensed network of content and research partners, including those that train AI models.

I would definitely call this “opt-out” because your content is being shared with our (i.e. Automattic’s) network of content and research partners, including those that train AI models unless you actively prevent it.

OK, not good that. Really not good. Would be interesting to know if an oldish, with quite a bit of content, site has the box checked (no-sharing), and if the same applies to new-or-old self hosted WP sites (either one-click install provided by hosts or full manual install).

I wonder if existing site owners would get a notification about this new setting.

I’ll get on that for .com later today, unless anyone wants to jump in ahead and draft something. Hopefully the other international sites in our suite will do likewise.

Maybe even a cheeky tweet (or whatever they’re called now) would be a nice idea while eyeballs are on this topic.
