Greetnigs DC users,
I am going to do something I'm not aware of anyone else ever doing. I am putting everything I own online on an imageboard.
Let me explain:
I have just recently become unemployed due to some hardships, and it does not look like I will be gainfully employed for the forseeable future due to health issues.
There are a few drawbacks of being me, and they are
- I collect everything and don't throw it away, I just hoard
- I am very unorganized
- I want to manage a website with an active userbase that combines all aspects of my life
Normally, I would have a hard time coming up with anything, but I decided to let my imagination run wild and give myself a fully funded budget.
There actually exists a somewhat simple solution to all my problems: An imageboard which hosts all my memories (images of things).
One of the reasons I don't throw things away is because I'll have a certain memory triggered whenever I come across it. Well if I have nice photographs of that object from multiple angles, tags related to that object, and maybe even a description of the item I wrote when I had it in my hands, what would I need that physical item for? I will literally be archiving and compressing memories into a digital trigger format.
Assuming I have all my objects, custom artwork, and posters in this database, I can quickly search "fred" and see everything related to "fred". Let's say Fred got me a cool present for my birthday, so I look it up... and then I see things related to fred which trigger other memories with fred and so on. Each time I want to fire up a memory I simply use the tags in the search engine to find and amplify any possible memories related to it.
Let's say I photograph my xbox, put it in storage, and months later find a spare controller. If I take an image of the controller and use the "x-box" tag, they will instantly be categorized together. And let's say I wrote a large X on the bucket I put the xbox in. An indicator of where in storage the xbox and related items are is in the tag information, so I can easily put things away or find them together in real life as well as online.
Or let's say I'm at a comic shop and don't know if I have a certain issue, I can look up by the series name, the publisher name, or even the issue number to see if I have it.
I will be able to show off entire collections in category form. I can show off my Pokemon collection or share the Pokemon_TCG tag to just show all my Pokemon cards.
I think this will be a fantastic and therapeutic way to deal with all my issues in one fell swoop.
Please leave any feedback below if you have any questions or concerns.
Oh yeah, obviously there will be tags that will not be public.
