Adventures in Building a Library Catalog

This entry is part 10 of 10 in the series Rethinking the Internet

Introduction Some time ago, I wrote about the problems with Goodreads and how StoryGraph can be a good alternative for many. This is something I’m really interested because most of what I do is about books and because of my ADHD brain, not being able to track the books I have causes quite unique problems … Read more

Why I Keep Coming Back to Blogging

This entry is part 9 of 10 in the series Rethinking the Internet

This is part of one of the blog chains here, titled “Rethinking the Internet” but instead of using numbered titles, I have decided to continue with unique ones. If you’re someone who writes or reads online, you know that newsletters are the hot trend for a while. While I totally understand why it’s so popular … Read more

DEHB Üzerine Sıkça Sorulmayan Sorular

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series DEHB ile Yaşamak

Daha önce de yazdığım gibi, DEHB ile yaşamak veya bu konuda faydalanacak kaynak, konuşacak insan bulmak hiç de kolay bir iş değil. Zaten zor olan birçok şey, bu yalnız kalma hâli ve gizlenme zorunluluğu ile daha da çekilmez bir noktaya gelebiliyor. Bu yüzden Twitter’da ilk yazdıklarımdan bu yana aldığım olumlu tepkiler ve bu konudaki ihtiyacın … Read more

Passwords: 1

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Passwords

If you ever need an example to explain why we need to be careful about the concepts and words we’re using, postmodernism is the one you’re looking for. Not sure if it’s just because of my academic background or the type of people consciously misusing the term but every time I see someone using postmodernism … Read more

Rethinking How I Use Internet: 8

This entry is part 8 of 10 in the series Rethinking the Internet

Goodreads today looks and works much as it did when it was launched. The design is like a teenager’s 2005 Myspace page: cluttered, random and unintuitive. Books fail to appear when searched for, messages fail to send, and users are flooded with updates in their timelines that have nothing to do with the books they … Read more

Rethinking How I Use Internet: 7

This entry is part 7 of 10 in the series Rethinking the Internet

On most of what people call “the internet” I’m somewhere between lurker and behind the locked accounts. I want to draw more solid lines on that but maybe what I need is just going with the flow and seeing where it’s going to take me. What I’m actually thinking about lately is actually my newsletter. … Read more

Rethinking How I Use Internet: 6

This entry is part 6 of 10 in the series Rethinking the Internet

It’s been a while since I wrote in this blogchain. And during this time, I relapsed quite a bit. Especially after all the events going around the world. But this is a good time (at least for time) to restart this conversation. The main thing is, for many different reasons, what many people consider as … Read more

Rethinking How I Use Internet: 5

This entry is part 5 of 10 in the series Rethinking the Internet

Decided to experiment on my social media use: I’ll be giving most of the control to the automation for a while. It’s not that I’m trying to go Hard Waldenponding. (Thanks for pointing that term out Warren.) But instead, taking a step back during the adjustment process. Because that’s what I need right now. With … Read more
