@wiobyrne does that mean if I don't buy into every Patreon account that I am 'the product' https://readwriterespond.com/2018/03/the-move-to-patreon/
@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.
@wiobyrne sorry, I only just go to your newsletter. Wow. Even more links to go through. It is messy. Wondering if you'd come across this in your travels? https://collect.readwriterespond.com/freeing-myself-from-facebook/
@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.
@wiobyrne it is interesting. I used to save to Diigo without a second thought, now that I do it through my blog, I find that I am a lot more mindful
@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. :)
I’ve written in a little bit of depth before about Organizing my research related reading.
My favorite piece of the puzzle is using the Post Kinds Plugin for WordPress which has some useful browser bookmarklets for quickly saving what I read, bookmark, and interact with online. The ability to add categories, tags, and other metadata also helps.
You can then turn around and add all this to a newsletter at your leisure.

@wiobyrne Another simple option is to use something like IFTTT.com to port your data from Pinboard to WordPress automatically. I often do some of that as "drafts" for myself and only publish pieces I want to make explicitly public (or in your case, posts you specifically want to include into a newsletter perhaps).
@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. :)
