  1. Adactio: Journal—The tragedy of the commons

    All of this. On the Brooklyn Museum, who haven’t just moved on from Flickr Commons, but deleted all their stuff from it as well.

    Some days you think that Bengali typhoon was never going to merely shake things up, but just leave the place in a whole new kind of mess.

    @ks I missed the big day, but belated congratulations!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @george08 That's the worst thing. It's a shame to decide to leave, but deleting the photos, comments… ugh.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @knolleary But they’re not (yet) removing the app, so it’s just an acquisition.

    @bluechoochoo If they were getting rid of Cover… I'll copy this for future reference though… thanks!

    @ireneros Looks really useful, well done! BTW, I'm looking on a phone and it's not very usable on that - page is too wide and unzoomable.

    @aanand You just showed everyone your password!

    @felix_cohen It's just like the faux-intellectual nonsense those three guys used when justifying their Jon Ronson twitter bot.

    @AnnieFeighery As ever: “The uploader has not made this video available in your country.”

    @rooreynolds @FinalBullet I can hear it now, with Roo crooning in one ear, Leila and Lee’s backing vocal harmonies in the other…

    @tomcoates True Blood and Game Of Thrones?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @AnnieFeighery Yes, I guess it depends on what the authorial/directorial point of view implies about any sexism that happens. If anything.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @FinalBullet @rooreynolds I didn’t want to be pushy.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @AnnieFeighery I haven’t seen it - more anti-girl problems than real world Silicon Valley?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @rooreynolds @FinalBullet If you ever call it a day on Shift Run Stop (heaven forbid) can I request a video of Roo singing ‘Forever Autumn’?

    @rachelcoldicutt @antimega @iamdanw I have respect for deciding to definitively not pay attention to some social media. But deleting stuff…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @iamdanw @rachelcoldicutt @antimega Another drawback to relying on third-parties - there’s rarely a way to even redirect to new locations.

    @rachelcoldicutt @antimega @iamdanw “Material at The Commons on Flickr has been moved to Wikimedia” brooklynmuseum.org/community/blog…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @antimega @rachelcoldicutt @iamdanw That was my assumption. I thought it was as “forever” as Flickr deemed it to be. (Which, you know.)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @rachelcoldicutt @iamdanw Life would be easier if I assumed everything online only lasts for a year. Any more is a bonus. But I don’t (yet).

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @iamdanw I don’t think I realised they were going to delete all the photos, rather than just not post more. Nnghhh.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @holgate @infovore @abscond @hondanhon Doh, why didn’t I think of that? (I’m not sure I ever saw it actually. Probably a good thing.)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @felix_cohen Which front end dev are you teaching, and what are you teaching them?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @infovore @abscond @hondanhon I'm wondering if this quote is the only bit of Everyone Hates Attachments existing: timemachinego.com/linkmachinego/…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @infovore @abscond @hondanhon Everyone, including @megpickard, hates Attachments: observer.theguardian.com/screen/story/0…
