If you're not paying for something, you're not the customer, you're the product being sold.

@mrkrndvs excellent question that I think we should all ask. I'm pushing for individuals that are "healthy skeptics" and question everything they read (especially online) to garner whether this is credible (truthful) and relevant (useful). I think we also need individuals (kids) that can find/read code so they can understand what they're giving up in the exchange.

@mrkrndvs thanks for the share. I'm in the process of following the lead you've established in collecting links and providing some commentary, and then heading to TL;DR. In this, I've been wondering about companies keeping/selling my data/identity. I've also been wondering about keeping my own set of bread crumbs online.

@mrkrndvs I've really been interested in the collection/curation I see from you &
@chrisaldrich - I'm in the process of figuring out how to build up a WordPress site to serve as the "commonplace book" on the WordPress site, keep it simple, and have it pump into my weekly newsletter. Any links/guidance/plugins on how to make this happen is definitely appreciated.

I want to keep this as simple/lightweight as possible. :)

@chrisaldrich thanks for sharing such granular feedback. My current system is quite sloppy. I find pieces I'd like to share or just save. These all end up in Pinboard. I'm thinking that I'd like to carve out time to quickly post & briefly comment on posts on my WordPress site for my newsletter. Some of these posts would make it to the newsletter...others for my possible later use.

But, I want a place for quotes, podcast clips, news, tricks, etc.

Thanks again.

@chrisaldrich that is also a great idea. I've never thought about making those posts drafts using IFTTT and then coming back later to edit/revise or delete. Hmmm.... now I just need to do it. :)

@mrkrndvs I'm playing with IFTTT and the plug-in now to see what I like best. We'll see what comes of this. ;)
