Yo. Have been building a new content type into my site here called Points. They are these small chunks of data similar to what one might give to sites like twitter, facebook, tumblr, dumpfm... often social in nature, but sometimes not. This year I have stopped using such sites and am making an effort to keep my online data activities "in house" whenever possible. I'm an architect and control freak, forgive me. I've been working on the web a long time and have grown weary of cool sites getting popular and selling out my data to God knows who. Well anyway, my Points are not yet bi-directionally 'sharable' in the social media sense, but they will be as soon as the magic elves of ye Internet invent a communication standard for doing so. It will come. I will wait. In the meantime I will be posting my tweety-dump-status-update-points to the world wide web right here on my very own website via HTTP and RSS. And sorry to all the Facebook friends whom I greatly miss, but to be honest I probably wouldn't hang with you at McDonalds or Wal-Mart either!
