My last post was review of my 2014 on Flickr, this is a quick list of some of my other online lives in 2014:

106 drop in

Another 20 blog posts on my DS106 blog. Can’t choose a favourite there, my 106 posts have an even smaller potential audience than here, but I love them more for that!

I also knitted a few webpages linked to DS106, DS106 GiF TV is by far the most interesting and fun (if somewhat incomprehensible ).

Pinboard, link collection

1561 pinboard links Pinboard: bookmarks for johnjohnston my delicious replacement, a lovely service.


103 gifs posted to tumblr jjgifs, March with 22 gifs was the busiest, not sure what I was thinking of…

Two of my gifs were featured on the Tumblr radar, skewing my stats somewhat and making my tumblr output the most popular of my online publications by a long way. It was quite amusing watching the likes pile on, as far as I can see the radar is pretty random but this many likes cheered me up at the start of 2014.

17 Youtube videos posted: YouTube John Johnston the most popular with 340 views was Journey into DS106 tdc762 most of the rest were ds106 inspired too.


6 Videos posted to vimeo, I think of vimeo as a bit more seriously than youtube. 4 out of 6 of these were for the day job.


We produced a fair number of podcasts over on Edutalk this year, it is a great experience, we have had some lovely conversations and learnt a lot talking to all sorts of folk. Lots of interesting plans and possibilities for 2015.

New Spaces and Places

I’ve used a few new services in 2014: Known, What do I Know?; Fargo (I started playing with Fargo in 2013, and have blogged about it a few times); other software from Dave Winer and Smallest Federated Wiki, which I am only just beginning to get a clue about.

I also set up home in a ~tilde club: where I’ve also set up a River4, another RSS application from Davie Winer.

All of these places are really interesting and I hope to be digging into them more later on. I’ll post some basic information soon.

Twitter, Instagram and places I might have forgotten

I’ve not gather stats for these places, but I tweeted a far bit and posted quite a few pictures to instagram. I am sure I’ve posted other things in other places too….


This will bring the 10th birthday of this blog in February, as usually I post an unstructured pile of stuff lacking overall focus or any hope of a plan. This might not make this a great blog, but I continue to enjoy the process.

Previous Years

I’ve just added a page to the blog that lists All Posts, made it easy to find other end of year reviews, not a lot of consistency of approach:
