My personal site is gradually rotting, interactions with services breaking, libraries no longer being updated, features disappearing.

@philgyford if you can’t do it, the rest of us are stuffed.

I should rewrite it. But the last Frankenstein’s monster, from the previous attempt, lies half-finished on the table, already obsolete.

That’s the difficulty with “own your own data”. Over the years you accumulate so much that the processes become onerous.

@philgyford It turns out that I'm unable to scale the processes I use to manage my own data :(

Years of writing, tweets, books read, photos taken, music listened to, sites linked to, locations checked in to. All of it moving.

@philgyford So what we need is a service to help you own your own d... oh bollocks.

@philgyford Yeah I've sort of given up on that stuff now. It's just easier to go with the standard path that everyone else does. Sadly.

@tomcoates I want to keep doing it but… time. Even once it’s done and running, everything needs updating, always moving.

@philgyford Yeah, that's the problem. I don't want to be updating everything and getting it all working more often than I'm using it...

@tomcoates Yeah. I like having it as an idea of what I think personal sites should be, an accumulation of everything. But even so.

@philgyford I think ten years ago the making of the space was as important as the content. But I think that's no longer true.
