My motto for the year is “talk it out”. Step one is to try to push the boundaries about what I’m willing to be public about.
To that end I’ve created a public Github repository and have started publishing various long-term information about myself. The stuff that doesn’t really make sense on Twitter, or Facebook, or even Tumblr. Stuff that I think about on and off over the course of years, rather than days or minutes. The added benefit of being able to track changes, and to treat my sense of self as a codebase just makes it that much more nerdy and interesting to me.
Here it is: https://github.com/busterbenson/public
So far, I’ve got files for my beliefs, my life list, my yearly birthday mottos, my manifesto for extraordinary living, and just today I added my genome in the raw format that 23andme.com provides.
I’ve had a lot of fun putting together these lists so far, and encourage anyone else to do it, and to come up with even more interesting ways of putting yourself out there publicly.
What else should I add to the repository?
