This is my first post. I haven't done a lot of this writing on the internet stuff before, which is a shame it would probably have been handy to get better at it before the internet started having a lot of persistent history (like finding the first post you wrote somewhere 10 years ago and knowing you have changed a lot since then rather than the site closing and making it hard to accidentally come across). Imagine all the people doing this today and in 50 years having to see how things they said in uni are not how they feel now (apparently people's claimed political beliefs change as they age (usually left -> right)) or are no longer correct (e.g. that wonderful new insulation that you advocated (and forgotten) is found many years on to cause cancer).
Does anyone else wonder about the ability to see people over time and the rate at which one should post new opinions to try to match their online presence with their current state of mind (or corrections on old posts in case the search engine throws the page up)? Or if it will matter, maybe it will simply become creepy to read back posts for more than the last couple of years.
Names are hard sigh
I haven't come up with a good name yet (more than a week) so I guess I'll be namingFailed for the foreseeable future.
- The future
- Science fiction (all sorts of stuff)
