Keep on Co-Claiming

Alan Levine, CogDogBlog, Nov 13, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I don't know whether "co-claim the web' will earn as much traction as "reclaim the web" but I enjoy Alan Levine's efforts to find something like a middle ground here. The middle ground is more or less what I do as well - I still use services like Flickr and Twitter and Facebook but I would not be lost or despondent should they suddenly shut down. Anything I actually value that I host on those services is well backed-up elsewhere. And so I can use them for their primary purpose: to share, to intermingle, to fine weirdness and serendipity (like the 'default' tag on Flickr).
