πŸ“‘ On the temptation to nuke everything and start over

Bookmarked On the temptation to nuke everything and start over | Open Thinkering by Doug Belshaw (Open Thinkering | Doug Belshaw's blog)

A thank you to Audrey Watters and Kin Lane, and a reminder that everything is temporary.

Influenced on Kin Lane’s decision to leave the past behind, Doug Belshaw reflects on the temptation to start over. It is interesting to think about this alongside the debates about the end of forgetting. I wonder if it is really possible to nuke the past? Although we can make it more difficult, there are still traces, whether it be pieces saved within the Internet Archive or others cached around the web. I feel that nuking is the wrong approach, rather it is about what we make intentionally private and public. I just wonder if I also have a part to play by making the various links and references private as well?
