There was a time when I imagined everyone would have their own website, that the web would encourage and facilitate the production of original work as much as the consumption of it. While “home pages” haven’t entirely disappeared, today, without question, social media has largely fulfilled or subsumed, depending on one’s perspective, this promise.
While I infrequently participate on social networks, I still have a fondness for that original idea, arguably the reason for the invention of hypertext and the “WorldWideWeb” in the first place: to cultivate unique spaces where individuals can express themselves, share ideas, and point to things they find interesting.
Thanks for visiting mine.
