Occasionally I have been doing this thing with my blog where I write an article, and schedule it to automatically post sometime in the future. To date, only 1 of the 4 or 5 time capsule blog posts has actually been published. https://grimtech.net/time-capsule-post-003/
Why make time capsule blog posts?
I think there is novelty in reading what my past self thinks of the world. People change over time, and it’s a nice thing to be able to peer back into the state of my mind from a time ago.
Sometimes, I write embarrassing things. I would like to share them, but I’m just not ready yet. Assuming the saying “time heals all wounds” is true, I should confidently be able to share embarrassing blog posts at a later date.
If I were to die in an accident, I have a virtual dead man switch. My secrets will automatically publish themselves to the internet via this blog. This is all hypothetical, of course! I’m not dead yet, so I’ll push the publish date out another year. 😜
