I regularly think, "Oh, I should have a public place where I can informally write notes about my various projects," and then I remember that I am on Twitter and Mastodon and Tumblr and all of them are basically about informal rumination, and then I don't post anything on any of them.

@keweddji It's really disappointing that this doesn't work out better. It turns out that informal utterances aren't the best things to engrave in stone on the public square.

@acowley This is very true, but at the same time, I've had experiences in the past where idle public notes on what I'm working on have led to new directions or at least good conversation. I wish I knew how to get the advantages of that openness without the disadvantages of, well, social media in general.
