I like East Coker by TS Eliot. I don’t think I understand it all. But I like it.
“Home is where one starts from. As we grow older
The world becomes stranger, the pattern more complicated
Of dead and living. Not the intense moment
Isolated, with no before and after,
But a lifetime burning in every moment
And not the lifetime of one man only
But of old stones that cannot be deciphered.”
I like the way it’s written. I like how the characters have these little thoughts as asides now and then.
Feuding dukes doesn’t really get me going plot wise, but some of this CHOAM company stuff seems like it could be interesting.
I don’t currently have any analytics on my own personal website – I’m much more interested in genuine active interactions than shaped passive interactions. I kind of feel like passive analytics, visitor counts, etc, in a personal context, can feed into the performative aspect of the web. Like, "this post did better, I should write more like this". Losing some of your own voice to serve the numbers.
That said, in an organisational context, analytics can be very useful. "This visitor genuinely wanted to learn more about us, but struggled because X". And I would really like to not use Google. So I might have a play with Matomo on my own site and see if we could use it at work.
