If I can't delete my facebook I'm just going to nuke every single post I have made on there and then leave it blank, then check the messages occasionally in case any of my relatives contact me

@celia I’ve only ever had a few “actual” such conversations with a handful of people, but I’m really liking it! Reminds me of the days we would leave actual comments underneath other people’s blog posts, except it’s cross-site and thus full of possibilities—longer “blogchains,” etc.! (I mean, okay, almost nobody does this, but who cares? People rather want Facebook? Let them have it! *Personal websites are awesome.*)

I’m thinking about ways to give @write_as customers ownership in the platform. I think something like a customer co-op model would really solidify the idea that we’re aligning incentives between platform and users.

Not sure where to start with that, though.

"A Unified Theory of Web Performance" by @slightlyoff

"No silver bullets, only complex tradeoffs" is a good maxim to always try to remember.

Remember to give yourself some free time and space when you can. It's good for the soul. Also remember that there are people who enable you that free time, and repay the gift in kind. It's good for everyone's soul.
