Listen up, gang
  1. So you know how liking old pictures or statuses on an acquaintance's Facebook is super weird and/or creepy?
  2. You know how searching through someone's old tweets suggests that you have way too much time on your hands (and/or are weird and/or creepy)?
  3. This is because Facebook and Twitter, by their natures, encourage disposable communication. The tweet about what I had for lunch today, if it ever had any value, definitely expires after about 24 hours.
  4. is not like that!
  5. We are a creative community, and our lists are not meant to be disposable. Old lists are just as interesting and valid and vital as new lists. They don't expire.
  6. However, social media habits die hard and, despite the nifty addition of the "related lists" thigamajig, it still feels gauche to look through someone's list history.
  7. But no more!
  8. This week, I encourage all of you (yes, you!) to like and comment on lists that are over 6 months old.
  9. Let's revitalize the past lists of yore! Let's restart conversations, jumpstart debates, reopen wounds.
  10. Who's with me?
