Jessica's stuff - all the places that I have data that I don't own/control:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Flickr
  • Dribbble
  • Yelp
  • LinkedIn
  • Google - maps, etc.
  • Delicious
  • Fitbit
  • last.fm
  • Spotify?
  • Goodreads
  • Blogs

What to do?

  • Start with jessicaklein.com
  • Can move data over part by part
  • You can't do everything you want to - you need to prioritize the things that are most important


make a personal site
link to where you are elsewhere - or you can do POSSE, publish on own site and syndicate elsewhere
Cluster, synthesize
are there communities?

the term "personal web site" is on TV ads wix.com, squarespace

UI/UX is job 1
