I use my social streams and digital recordings of what I do in real life as part of a personal mutli-year investigation into semantics and digital memory. For some time now, my Twitter steam was mirrored to my Facebook one and archived on my blog, as part of “life as it happens“. I am seriously considering separating the coupling and maintaining two streams with different roles.
The Twitter one would act as a broadcast stream of work, technical, interesting stuff while the Facebook one as a recording of my personal adventures, whereabouts, and mishaps. Links to my blog entries will continue to appear in both and everything will be archived on this web site. I still have some infrastructure to take care of. As soon as the “divorce” is official, I’ll let everyone know.
Both streams are open to everyone of course.
