I know I shouldn't try to post in the middle of the night.
Let me write what I meant to express:
„Hoping interopability will fix this is like hoping that by taking your old funny remarks and your share of food and drink you already consumed from one party will create a new one.“
Nearly all the content people on social networks - including this one - create is ephemeral in nature. It's one of the biggest bugs, actually, as making it last benefits mostly the site owners, but not the uses.
What's lasting are the relationships these exchanges created and, to some extent, reputation. Both are not transferrable - changing groups always means having to establish new ones.
By the way, how can I export my stuff here on Boing Boing, has anyone seen how to do this?
