I'm considering not using #Neocities to host my #blog since they have site stats. After my experience with using #WordPress and getting distracted by the analytics I feel like I want to have a site with zero stats so I can focus on the #writing. Not sure where I would host it though since I'm #learning how to #code HTML and CSS and Neocities makes it really simple to upload the files. I looked in the settings on Neocities and it looks like I can't turn off the site stats.

"The Internet #Archive has transformed thousands of references to books in #Wikipedia into live links to digitized books, allowing users to link book references directly into Internet Archive #books. Diving deeper into a subject will be a single click and readers may preview the book and, if they want to read further, they can borrow the digital copy in a way that’s analogous to how they borrow physical books from their local library"

I need to rethink how - my open-source hobby project of last couple of years - should evolve.

At its core, it's a curated dataset. A key question is: Who does the curation?

- If I do it myself, it's too expensive.
- If it's crowdsourced, handling spam and abuse is too expensive.
- If an algorithm does it, quality suffers.

But more importantly, is it even useful?

Interesting in hearing what people think.
