Leaving Facebook ... soon
Facebook has continued to fall further and further off the road that I consider a good, positive web platform. I am going to be cancelling my Facebook account in the next several months (I want to ensure I’ve downloaded all of my information/photos/etc before I actually delete it). There are two major issues around me deleting Facebook. Mainly: How will...

I've officially deleted my Facebook account, and it will disappear completely from Facebook within 14 days. It feels great. I hope they go down in flames.

🎧 Listened to “An Indieweb Podcast Episode 0” by David Shanske and Chris Aldrich.

I really enjoyed this pilot episode! I was particularly interested in some of the discussion around annotations for audio.
