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/.

Media Pick

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
