I woke up this morning thinking about my post from yesterday.

How absurd is it that we must rely on the Internet Archive to find out what we have previously shared about ourselves online? And it’s not even possible to get everything back.

It doesn’t make sense to rely on social media to protect our memories. Think about it. It is our content, connections, pictures, and lives. I’m not even talking about privacy. These companies often go out of business, and every time one of them despairs, part of our memories are erased. As someone who loves History, I often wonder how future historians will learn about our time.

Go buy a domain and create a site to be your online identity. Start a blog, and then share the posts on all social media sites.
