    1. Bringing this back to filtering, not only am I saving time and preserving focus by batch processing both the collection and the consumption of new content, I’m time-shifting the curation process to a time better suited for reading, and (most critically) removed from the temptations, stresses, and biopsychosocial hooks that first lured me in.I am always amazed by what happens: no matter how stringent I was in the original collecting, no matter how certain I was that this thing was worthwhile, I regularly eliminate 1/3 of my list before reading. The post that looked SO INTERESTING when compared to that one task I’d been procrastinating on, in retrospect isn’t even something I care about.What I’m essentially doing is creating a buffer. Instead of pushing a new piece of info through from intake to processing to consumption without any scrutiny, I’m creating a pool of options drawn from a longer time period, which allows me to make decisions from a higher perspective, where those decisions are much better aligned with what truly matters to me.

      Using read-it later apps helps you separate collection from filtering.

      By time-shifting the filtering process to a time better suited for reading, and removed from temptations, you will want to drop 2/3 of the content you save.

      This allows you to "make decisions from a higher perspective"

    1. I have been considering blogging platforms long time ago. My criteria was different, but I care, as you do, about underlying tech stack, programming language and autonomy.

      I have blogged about my blogging and these days I just use Markdeep with Fossil and Hypothesis for comments and annotations (as I'm doing here). I think this combination is working pretty fine for now and maybe I just automate the process here and there as needed.

      By the way, I also like the self contained tech (I call them "pocket infrastructures": simple, self-contained, local first and extensible), but my exploration goes into dynamic languages and environments with Pharo (a Squeak fork) and I'm just putting Nim in my radar recently. I may try LittleStore. soon, as I see really aligned to my interests.

    1. Pocket Casts is instead committed to podcasting’s open ecosystem of freely available RSS feeds, CEO Owen Grover says.

      I wish their app allowed one to actually use the podcast's native URL(s) when sharing instead of providing a pca.st shortened URL.

    1. We strongly urge you to reconsider your business tactic here and again respect people’s right to choice and control of their online experience by making it easier, more obvious and intuitive for people to maintain the choices they have already made through the upgrade experience.

      Completely agree!

      Now...how do I change my Reader View settings to use something besides Pocket for social bookmarking?

      ...can't seem to find that setting...anywhere.

      It would be less confusing if these commands were the same as the Chrome Pocket app, which is ALT + 5, but glad to know that this functionality isn't gone!
