Sam's Wiki

Hello world, this is my little bit of the web. I don't suppose there's much here to interest you… I'm really only posting what I think I might want to refer to later. It's my memex, my corner of the commons, my concession to the feeling of wanting to shout things aloud (i.e. blog) and not minding who hears (and I'm not on Facebook, so this'll have to do).

Where else on the web

There are many sites on the web to which one can post things. The only ones of these that I use are the ones that feel trustworthy and that exist for the common good. Into this category goes the Wikimedia sites (Wikipedia, Wikisource, and Commons, primarily); OpenStreetMap; and Librivox. Reddit might fit there too, as a place for discussion (I'm not really sure). Even Flickr could be squeezed onto the end of the list, because archiving photos is something that everyone should be encouraged to do, and the NLA reckons Flickr is appropriate for that.

Ones own bits of the web

Everything else goes here, managed by Dokuwiki. Or not quite everything, because I still have a couple of genealogical archives on other sites. (Even those, however, reference pages in this wiki a fair bit, for the purposes of public/open research.) There's also OwnCloud and RoundCube; but they're nothing public.

On the desktop

Files should be plain text, HTML, ODF, PDF/A, PNG, JPG, GIF, and SVG.

And of course, separate and offline, I have a solid disaster recovery system.
