Where am I going?

First of all, with some limitations I generally share everything I share on all platforms where it makes sense. (I have an iOS shortcut I've been using for that—I hope to release an initial test version of that for people to use in late Oct).

Twitter
I've been "nazgul" on Twitter for over a decade. If you follow me, drop me a note so I'll remember to add you to my G+ list. Most of the stuff I share will be here in shortened form. But it also includes retweets that I don't always share elsewhere. I stay up-to-date on conversations on Twitter.

Facebook
I still have a Facebook account (too much family and old friends to abandon it). If we've conversed here I'm happy to friend you there, but please drop me a note first (here, or on some other social media, or via email (I own hinckley.com, you can guess my email)). After some viral post I shared there I got 200+ friend requests and I have no idea who I know and who I don't, even if I weren't lousy at remembering names. So send me some context. This gets less of my content, and I'm slower to respond. I basically don't read anything here, just check my comments.

Instagram
I'm kee.hinckley here. Most of the stuff I share to my "My Photos" collection ends up on Instagram.

Pluspora
I'm nazgul here, or search for my name. I'm liking it so far. Good interactions. A platform that I might contribute too. I'm likely to use this as my home base along with twitter.

MeWe
I've created an account with my name. Not sure if I'll stay.

Dreamwidth
I might move my ancient LJ account over, but probably not. I haven't touched LJ in 10 years or so.

Blog
I'll probably bring back my blog at technosocial.com for actual writing. Or I might explore Medium. I'm leaving this open right now.

Communities
A number of people have suggested that slack is a reasonable place for these and I think I agree. Especially for private ones.

I'll update/repost this as I make more decisions.

“I think people die when they feel completely alone."

The most pivotal response was sent by a study participant who lived in an apartment in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district. The man, who 18 months earlier had written a “kiss-off” letter, now described himself as a broken vase held together by his own hands. His letter spanned five single-spaced typed pages and read as if it had taken days to write. Forty years later, Motto could remember the first sentence: “You are the most persistent son-of-a-bitch I’ve ever encountered, so you must really be sincere in your interest in me.” There it was, a perfect encapsulation of the study’s aims. Motto called it “the bingo letter.”

After about four years, Motto and his team had enough data to determine that their work was unprecedented in the history of suicide research. In the first two years following hospitalization, the suicide rate of the control group was nearly twice as high as that of the contact group. And it wasn’t only that no other experiment had ever been able to show a reduction in suicide deaths. Motto had also demonstrated something more profound: People who attempted suicide and wanted nothing to do with the mental health system could still be reached.

The story of Lili Elbe, one of the first people to transition from male to female in the public eye, is an extraordinary one.

1. Something happened at the Capitol Tuesday to reaffirm my long-held view that liberals should stop believing what conservatives say liberals believe.

For the job, Congress turned to one of the most important journalists of America’s Revolutionary era. Also Baltimore’s postmaster, she was likely the United States government’s first female employee. At the bottom of the broadside, issued in January 1777, she too signed the Declaration: “Baltimore, in Maryland: Printed by Mary Katharine Goddard.”
