Crazy. I did a lot of creative writing in the early 2000s on Yahoo Groups and it will all vanish. Another nail in the coffin of trusting companies with the web.

@mike I've heard something about setting your region to China sends it to Tencent and everywhere else is Google (for the malicious site stuff). I can't remember where I read that and, quite easily, I could be wrong.

@rudolf Differentiating between what is urgent and what is important and then looking at the four different quadrants and how to handle those. Nothing urgent in the post itself. 🙂 This article is really sticking in my mind this morning. I'm wondering if I have the proper outlook on what I need to be doing, what I need to be planning, what I should be handing off, and what I need to be actively eliminating.

@nolan I can't help but think that kind of transparency is a major benefit to society. We are not just tying things up into "web black boxes" and then trusting their own analytics departments to figure this stuff out.

Cleared out my entire reading list over the past week. That was 140 web articles, post, and pages I had saved over the past couple of years which I have now worked through. Feels good.

@jordan31 FreshRSS is what I am using, BobRSS is just the name. I've been happy so far.

I jotted down some of the reasons why I don't use . I thought maybe some people may find it useful.

@DonMcCollough Same here. I've toyed with running my own instance but, for now, am really happy with @fosstodon

@ndegruchy That really intrigues me. I will be investigating it shortly.

@Tayo Same here. I am enjoying waking up to 30s and turning the fire on.

I wonder what the next set would be. What is the next thing I can self-host effectively?

Self-hosting my RSS reader has gone really well so far. BobRSS is working well enough for me to ditch Feedly.

I agree that data should be treated as a toxic asset. If you have to keep it around, it better be for a good reason and only as long as you need it.
