Gisteren kwam ik terecht op http://noloc.org/
Het idee is simpel, als je NoLoC koppelt aan je twitter-account, zullen zij er voor zorgen dat iedere tweet met de hashtag #noloc na ongeveer 23 weken vernietigd wordt. Library of Congres neemt namelijk tweets pas na ongeveer 24 weken op in het archief.
How Does #NoLOC Work?Het gaat NoLoC blijkbaar vooral om de vraag wat real-time is:
Very simply. Sign in with your Twitter account (click on Login link at the top-right), and approve the use of the NoLOC.org app for your account. Every time you tweet with the hashtag #noloc, our servers will detect that tweet and mark it for automatic deletion in about 23 weeks.
Why 23 Weeks?
According to the agreement between Twitter and the Library of Congress, all tweets that are not deleted within 6 months (24 weeks) of their submission date will be eligible for archival. So, on the 23rd week (give or take a couple of days), your tweet will be deleted by NoLOC.org's servers.
We encourage you to think about what “real time” really means. From the moment you press “submit” and send an update to Twitter or Facebook, that would be “Minute Zero.” How many minutes elapse before you would consider that information “stale?” That may depend on the size and frequency of updates of your personal network, or depend on the size and frequency of updates on your friend's personal network. We suggest that the length of “real time” becomes smaller as your personal network grows larger, because your latest update becomes less relevant and effectively buried under all of the other content being stacked into your social news feed.Vraag is nu natuurlijk hoe weet ik of het ook echt werkt?
We can agree that after a number of minutes, hours, or days, that information you provided can be classified as “stale,” as opposed to being “fresh” or in the “real time.” It is the stale data that no longer serves a value to you and your network. It does serve a purpose and provide value, but not to you personally. It provides value to data mining companies with marketing objectives. It can also be used by individuals, companies, government entities, or any future opponents you may face.
