I write things sometimes.

Stepping Forward

The more that I look at the discourse on Facebook, the less I like it. It is in general superficial and error-prone, and there is little keeping it going besides a network effect - it's where the people are. This is the sort of benefit that is hard to combat en masse, and is a problem that I'm going to leave for people who are smarter than me. One notable exception is the proliferation in the instant messaging space of Discord for creating small servers, and decentralizing (or at least fragmenting) the Messenger IM monoculture.

That being said, I'm tired, I don't have to put up with this, and I'm done sitting idly. My plan is to adopt the Publish (on your) Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere strategy for content creation. All the new musings will be posted here, and cross-pollinated to my other media. I may or may not embed a comment section, but I will always be reachable via email (see the footer).

As part of this commitment, I also offer anyone reading this the same opportunity: if you are interested in blogging and would like a (reasonably sized) web space to put your stuff, email me, and I'll share my space. Long live the decentralized web!
