This is an examination of conscience (of sorts). I have rejected the idea that people can be busy (much as it is a badge of honor to claim as much), but more of stressed/surprised/over-scheduled/etc. I question if there is a linear limit to an individual’s output and if there are ways that this can be increased. I touch on strategies that can virtually make this limitless and even reduce the human toll.
In this recording is a review of my current web hosting architecture as I see it after several months of active use. Specifically, I cover the shortcomings of the current setup, ways around each one and advantages of each alternative. This post mainly sets the stage for future updates or posts…
- What are the core needs?
- Review of my current setup and available alternatives
- Discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each option
- Next steps
Membership in any one of the social media platforms has its benefits; that are seldom longterm. By definition, these platforms come and go. In the next 17 minutes of audio, I will cover the following points as I set context for my decision to leave social media (not that I was that invested). I am instead focusing on establishing and maintaining a robust internet presence.
NB: The audio-levels are much higher/better in this post.
- Briefly explain the Internet of past and the built-in autonomy of publishing
- Contrast with the walled-garden idea that characterizes: BBS, AOL, FB, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc using the controlled model
- Tying your fate to that of the walled-garden that you live in VS
- Leaving an alias that enables others to find you regardless of what garden or personal island you move to
- Walled safety AND house-rules that stifle unique authenticity (sandboxes have rules/censorship)
