I AM ALWAYS intrigued by personal data stored on Google's timelines and now with the demise of Google Plus, I want to create my own scraper that can follow my cloud-based moments, archiving them for generations to review.
Right now I have 800 megabytes of media from three hours spent in Clonakilty's model railway village. It would be nice to access all those curated elements when 4yo Dylan enters his 20s.
I think Dave Winer has devised the workflow that best approaches a design process for what I want and it means nominating a central host (like a personal blog) as the main information hub where the crawling and archiving begins.
