The inevitable question about my Lookmark experiment

quantumstarlight asks: WHY WHY WOULD YOU WANT THIS

» SFB says: Because, being a guy who blogs about stuff, I read a lot of stuff. Usually, it goes into my history, never to be seen again. By keeping it out in the open, it gives me a chance to think about the online fingerprints I create. There’s also a good balance here: Lookmark is very careful about only sharing from news sites unless you ask it to share elsewhere. Also, I don’t think I have much to hide. I don’t plan to keep it public forever, but a couple of weeks seems like fun. — Ernie @ SFB

Experiment: Just for kicks, I’m publicly sharing everything I read on the internet using this thing called Lookmark.
Because I like trying things for fun: Over the last couple of days, I’ve been using this cool new service called Lookmark, which is sort of like a frictionless bookmarking tool, to track all the news stories I read online. (Think Facebook’s frictionless sharing, but transparent.) While I’m not throwing absolutely everything on there (no bank account numbers, sry), I am leaving up a public page showing all the stuff I am reading. On certain sites, like the New York Times, it picks up everything I read. I’m sure I’m gonna Petraeus myself by doing this, but it’s a fun experiment. Try it out. And follow me on there if you want. — Ernie @ SFB
