i'm not much of a hoarder in any other part of my life. i err on the side of throwing things away (or, better, not getting them to begin with). but somehow the internet encourages me to hoard links. it's not rational: why store 1000s of pieces of information you will literally never look at again? the oldest URLs in my files are getting close to 8 years old now. why am i keeping those? what purpose do they serve?
recently, i started yet another text file. at first i did this to test syncthing. but before long, i was pasting URLs from my phone or computer into that file so i could look at those URLs on other devices. and wouldn't you know, that file now has 10 URLs in it. no doubt that'll grow to 100s if i keep doing this. meanwhile, my other lists and databases and mind maps still have 1000s of URLs in them, sitting unread.
that file now has close to 1,000 lines in it. it's become so long and unwieldy that i only ever use the first 10 lines or so. in desperation, i've tried mind mapping some of the contents. as with the text file, the mind map became large and unwieldy; it has 100s of URLs in it. i won't list all the other things i've tried.
A recent study finds that male political reporters retweet male colleagues three times as often as female ones: https://www.vox.com/2018/6/22/17489516/male-politics-reporters-only-tweet-other-men-nikki-usher
> [The authors] write that the patterns “suggest that men live in a gendered echo chamber that promotes other male journalists at the expense of female ones.”
