🔗 Take the Power Back

Oliver Reichenstein at ia.net

The answer to the passive consumption of trash is the active formulation of questions, the active search for answers and the active work of putting complex knowledge and diffuse feelings into clear words. Unlike getting fed from those feeds, searching, researching, reflecting, and concise writing has the power to clear the mind. We need to write on our own domains. Don’t post thoughts on Facebook.

Still having problems. Signed out of Sunlit on my iPhone just test I could sign back in and I’m getting the same XML-RPC error. Micro.blog for iOS is still working, so I’m not signing out until I can figure out the problem.

🔗 Web Trends Map 2018

So happy to see Oliver Reichenstein posting over at ia.net again.

There seems to be a weak undercurrent of old and young bloggers like us that feel sentimental or curious and want to bring back blogging. Blogging won’t save the world. But, hell, after two weeks now, we can confirm: it feels great to be back on the blogging line.
