2. Everything I want to make publicly known about me, to publish or to share will (eventually) appear on the website, which is also mine and mine alone. Disgracebook is finished. That also means that people who want to communicate with me will have to go to the trouble of doing so directly, sending me your photographs or links to your dropboxes or websites or whatever, but it will therefore be a delight to hear from you and I promise to reciprocate with my nearest and dearest.
