A collection of articles I found influential on the topic of the early days of the internet, and my comments on why I found them thought-provoking.
This is my third and last entry about our trip to Sichuan for the second time, about the main purpose for going back there: Mount Emei.
Going to two of the places we had to skip in our first trip: the ancient irrigation system of Dujiangyan and the front, taoist mountain of Qingcheng.
There are places you know you want to go back to, and there are places you have to go back to, because you loved it and you missed too many things to see there.
One year ago I stopped posting to social networks, or at least minimized it as much as possible. Nearly a year passed so it’s time for a summary, and while I mostly resisted posting, it doesn’t feel like success.
The western world is slowly slipping into a special hell of self-imposed censorship, where people will not mention topics, not post issues, because it’s not appropriate, because it’s not part of the greater good, or because the network, that ‘everyone uses’ disallows it.
If you’d decide to ignore Facebook, delete your account, how many of your friends would respect this decision and would reach out on other channels? Same here, just a fraction of them.

Nested comments are bad for you, for the article, for the discussion and for readability.
Minimalism is not asceticism, it’s not about “wordly possessions behind” no matter what some say.
If the indieweb sites were not syndicating to Twitter, would it be possible to collect the posts based on hashtags with - for example - Google?
Vajon létezik olyan, hogy submainstream? Egy közösség, aki szinte bármire tud bulizni, ha az nem unalmas, nem elcsépelt, nem eszetlenül közhelyes és van benne valami extra.
E-mail is not dying and we do not need services for the same functionality as XMPP.
Where is the wonder, where’s the awe? Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for?
I registered to DeviantArt 9,5 years ago and I’ve just removed all of my submissions today.
Pull your content together from the shards: decentralize the social networks and centralize ourselves!
I’m tired of all the social networks. I want to go back to RSS, forums and real communication instead of reading through tonnes of meaningless shit. And by the time you reach the point of being tired - not angry, upset, flooded, but tired - it usually means you really are about to opt out.
Semi-minimal lifestyle: a thought between the regular and the digital nomad way.
Momentary social networks or deep-tech forums - is there nothing in between? Where is our promised external, collective memory?
Hiába írsz bármit, eltűnik a süllyesztőben, egy a végtelen, feneketlen katlanban, mert a fő érv az új, a friss, a legfontosabb, olyan szempontok és metrika alapján, amit algoritmusok részinformációk alapján ollóznak össze.
