David Hayes’ guide to the deceptively simple undertakings of finding, reading, and publishing, content online.
Outside of Facebook, the can-be-used-for publishing platform that most civilians are likely to have heard about is Twitter, which hardly qualifies as a publishing platform. If you’re ever looking for an old tweet, you’ll quickly realize that the medium is built to be short-lived. That’s not an inherently bad thing, but anyone who has the compulsion to record their thoughts in a public way probably doesn’t want to do so on such an ephemeral platform. Add to that the character limit and I would contend that anyone trying to use Twitter for much more than fooling around is acting foolishly. So, one wonders, how do I publish things in a public way so they can be found later?
