Analyzing my shows and movie habits

Today, I decided to readd a watches page, but this time it isn’t built from hundreds of posts, but from the data that I get directly from Trakt’s API. I built a small tool called trakt-collector used to collect your history and save it in JSON format.

The Trakt API gives you so much information about every episode and every movie: from the title, to the rating, description, channel where it aired, when it aired first, the countries where it aired, etc, etc. I don’t actually need all that information, but it’s never too much to store.

OwnYourTrakt

For quite some time, I have been getting more and more into the IndieWeb world and trying to own my own data. I have started publishing more to my website and using it as a place to store most of my public data, i.e., data I already published on other social media and platforms.

It now holds my web interactions, such as replies, likes and reposts, as well as my reading log. Since the beginning, I also wanted to this website as a place to store my watch logs. With watch I mean watching movies and TV series.

Bitcoin - The End of Money As We Know It

watch: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/bitcoin This documentary raises a lot of questions, as well as some information really interesting that I’ve never thought about: Problem: how to explain to people? Doesn’t need trust in central authorities/banks Where’s the money? The actual money? Actual banks don’t have the money they say they have. The money we use is actually “virtual”.

The Internet's Own Boy

This is a movie about Aaron Swartz, who believed the world knowledge should be free and publicly accessibly by everyone. He was the co-founder of Reddit and many other orgs. He was greatly involved on trying to avoid SOPA law to pass. Succeeds. Downloaded tons of papers and research from a website using MIT’s network The US government had a big case against him but they didn’t provide information/evidence. It didn’t make sense… It’s a really big loss. He just wanted to make the world a better place.
