The recent [outage at Instapaper]() made me realise that I currently have no secure backup for either the things I've read or my notes on them. Notes live in [Kindle]( ) and at Instapaper, while "things I've bookmarked" live at Instapaper and Pinboard. Good though those are, I don't have local copies, and I should.
This could take some thought. I can see no way of downloading the Kindle notes and highlights, although it is only HTML, on the surface it looks like pretty complex HTML. Instapaper is probably the same.
I should also try to have some sort of system that leaves unmarked things in Inboard and uses Instapaper specifically for things with notes.
This #indieweb stuff is hard, but empowering.
Later ... [Bookcision]() will let me get a clean copy of Kindle notes, one book at a time. Use in Chrome for preference. Calibre is also supposed to be able to do this, which might in the end be simpler.
