I’m beginning to think that I want to store two broad categories of content on my site, content which is defined by the time it occurred/is published and content which is primarily defined by some other attribute.

Examples of content defined by time, which at the moment I’m using notes for:

  • short, tweet-like notes
  • (often) ideas
  • checkins
  • bits of personal data like , , sleep or other quantified self-type things
  • replies
  • photos
  • some longer written pieces
  • assorted other location data e.g. journeys, runs, walks

Examples of content primarily defined by things other than time:

  • essay-like articles
  • experiments and tools
  • venues
  • profile data
  • contacts/people — although this is a tricky one which requires further experimentation
