I have always make it a point to clean up after myself in public forums on the net. Maybe it’s because I know too much about what is actually possible now, in terms of information access. Maybe it’s because I can clearly see a vision of what’s going to be considered commonplace, the expected norm, in a very short time – and it’s a little disconcerting.
As a result, I have always removed my postings, shared content and yes, even my comments on other peoples’ pages. That is, of course, after the intended audience has had time to take note and ponder what I had to say. More like a conversation to be heard once, not a book to be read or searched through later by automated systems.
Of the billion people who use a Social Network System (aka Facebook), who has a page with nothing on it – other than me? No status updates, no pictures, no comments left anywhere? No trace.
At 12:12:12 on 12/12/12, I had a revelation. All these random things in my head that I share, things that I see and foresee, should have a home so they can be found later. On that day, I decided it was time for something different. Time to to leave something out there – to stay and be found, whatever it may be, wherever it may be, whenever it may be.
I am everywhere now. Intentionally.
Even the smallest idea can have a big impact…
…Share what you know. Others may benefit from it, in ways you never imagined. 🙂
