@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. :)
@wiobyrne I agree with @ChrisAldrich about post kind plugins. Although I have more variants than the kinds provided, they offer a really good starting point.
Clint Lalonde Also wrote about the use of MailPoet To curate his newsletter. It doesn’t suit me at this point in time, but might suit you. Also, I think MailChimp allows you to collate via blog posts too? I assume that is what @dajbelshaw is doing with Thought Shrapnel.

@mrkrndvs I'm playing with IFTTT and the plug-in now to see what I like best. We'll see what comes of this. ;)
