Owning our work

I worry when I see that the brilliant words, images, and other creative works of so many folks are only posted on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and other corporately-owned services. Posting such content to those services only, and nowhere else, has two worrisome consequences.

My notes from the 2012 Allied Media Conference

I'm a bit of an obsessive note-taker. I actually count note-taking as one of my unique skills and I love to practice it. Good thing the Allied Media Conference gave me plenty of opportunities to do so! Every session had an Etherpad set up for it for folks to do collaborative note-taking in real time; here are all of the notes to which I contributed, with links to the original session info and some annotation here and there.

Dotster is inexplicably taking it's time getting my access to my new domain name, but thanks to May First/People Link and their handy auto-generated mayfirst.org subdomains, a little thing like a mysterious PENDING status need not stop all the action.

Now, needing to be functional at a decent hour tomorrow, that will stop all the action.
