I’m interested in the POSSE concept of Publish (on your) Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere and am giving it a go here. These notes are published here first and then automatically syndicated to Twitter. Right now I only have part of the functionality I want; the publish-to-Twitter part. Eventually I’d like to have all the cross links established as well as likes and comments from Twitter published here as well. For the month of October I’m trying very hard to not consume information from Twitter and only publish there through POSSE.

I’m also still ironing out the format for notes here and what this page looks like.
