New Year Related Pick
I heard a neat podcast episode from the Tiny Challenges site that was about 2017 intentions. The challenge itself is “three words of intentions for 2017”. I think it’s a nice challenge that isn’t as burdensome as the new year’s resolution approach.
If you’re looking for a more traditional goal based approach you might find the following article to be useful: https://eli4d.com/2016/01/29/alternatives-to-new-year-resolutions/.
I’ve been thinking/struggling for quite a while about the nature and place of my canonical place. Manton Reece has been thinking of the same thing. Manton has come up with micro.blog which will be a “timeline and publishing platform for the open web”. It’s an interesting idea and approach. Some information regarding this effort:
- Kickstarter campaign: I’ve backed this project because I’m really interested in the book that he is writing about the open web and his approach to the canonical issue (besides the service).
Manton discussing the project on the Release Notes podcast: A very good discussion clarifying the intent and workings of this project.
Micro.blog’s about page
RSS will power the timeline of microblogs and Wikipedia has a good definition
