fighting the lack of good ideas

archivist

For a long time, I’ve been concerned about knowledge capture.

And archiving.

I’ve finally done something about my own public persona.

It’s not 100% complete, but I’ve created my own “online merikebi” of public content.

It’s over at https://merikebi.warrenmyers.com. It’s collecting posts from all of my blogs, Reddit, and Twitter.

As and when appropriate (and possible), I’ll add other public sources (for example, I cannot collect my Quora content anymore).

what would you have done?

on color choices

How should you choose color? From illustration to visualization (which, of course, is a form of illustration).

visual text messaging

That’s what Marco Polo is.

Visual text messaging.

With the added perk of being able to save videos you make to your local device for sharing elsehow and elsewhere.

And that, I think, is it’s true Killer Feature™ – the ability to take selfie videos, get more or less instant feedback, make a few tweaks, and then post it for the world to see (if you’re into that kind of thing).

on multiple blogs

I maintain (to greater or lesser extents) 3 blogs currently:

  • https://blog.warrenmyers.com
  • https://paragraph.cf
  • https://antipaucity.com

I keep the first and last segmented so I can more easily find things I’ve written or reposted about Christianity, religion, and the Bible, and everything else. The middle one I keep to demo the WordPress plugin I wrote – Paragraph.

But keeping them going is hard.

Keeping any some going is hard – which is why my eponymous domain warrenmyers.com has been an alias to antiquity.com for quite some time now. Sure, there are still some things findable directly off my domain, but you have to know where and what they are 🙂

How do you, if you run a blog or other website, keep up with putting stuff there?

goodbye, self-hosted mastodon

It was nice knowing you. No really. It was.

I don’t say that because I found anything wrong in the fediverse.

Nope.

It’s entirely because a recent apt update not only broke my sweetree.ga instance, it irrecoverably broke it.

Guess I’ll have to use that domain somewhere somehow somewhen else.

Maybe I’ll try you again in a couple years.

sweetree.ga – the newest mastodon instance

After months years of threatening, I’ve finally removed one item from my round tuit plate: https://sweetree.ga is the latest Mastodon instance in the fediverse.

There are still a few bugs to iron-out of this instance, but it’s live, and I’m – once-again – tooting.

Come follow me – @warrenmyers@sweetree.ga

In the coming days, fully-automated registrations will be live .. mail settings are wonky right now, but I can manually approve anyone who’d like to join my instance.
