4 Permalinks

Not sure how I feel about the 'Cool URIs don't change' thing. I like the act of forgetting.

I guess that article is more focused on not breaking links to things that you want to stay available, which is fair enough.

But I'm thinking more of things that you may wish to not be permanent. It's not really my desire and I feel not my responsibility to make my past thoughts permanently accessible by anyone else. If I want to change them and forget them, I should be able to. I suppose you could keep the URI in place, but let people know that you've pulled that bit of info out of the public sphere.

Why share it at all online then? Many reasons. For dialogue and discussion, finding people with similar ideas. But not as a permanent record.

5 To expand/misc

  • heidegger, simondom (modes of existence of technical objects)
  • deleuze and guetarri
  • Philosophers historically pushed technology aside
  • simondon - alienation from technics
  • Adorno for ideas of mass communciation and culture industry
