  • Make things with personality
  • Open trumps closed [1]
  • Own your data [2]
  • Use tools that will work even a decade later
  • Build your own garden, an open and welcoming place, and break the hegemony of walled gardens.
  • Document your mind.
  • Don’t load unnecessary junk. A side effect to not loading unnecessary junk, a fast website.
  • Access is a civil right. Inaccessibility is poor craftsmanship [3]
  • The Hyperlink is at the heart of who you are. It's fate needs to lie with you. [4]
  • Own your domain

  4. Interesting talk about how the hyperlink changed the world. If nothing else, what's happening at twitter (december 3, 2022) right now should be a cautionary tale in building your digital identity in walled gardens. ↩︎
