I remember how I used to feel about email. It was many years after my first email address that I got a gmail account. It was both ephemeral, and permanent. I never had to worry about storage, that little storage counter was always going up! I would email myself small attachments, keep archives in very nice hierarchies, and generally revel in my ‘unlimited’ email account.
Ugh, is there anything worse than token management? Permissions, scopes, leaks, bleh. Avoiding the cycle of security patches and constant upkeep is a major reason I migrated this blog to gh-pages.
As readers of this blog may have surmised, I’m working to decentralize my online presence and own my own data. For the most part, that means replacing social networks and services with open-source alternatives I can host myself (or on GitHub.)
Like many of my readers, if I find out there’s another type of input on a device I’m going to plug something into it. Usually some kind of video game. So, when I realized the backup camera/monitor setup on my van had an extra input, I was compelled to install something new.
