Become A Fan

wall of text; gemini protocol; nostalgia from someone in their 20s 

Not something I've talked about much, but I'm a huge fan of "small web", thus why Mastodon is so great to me. I miss the days of the internet before it was entirely about startup, corporations, or enterprises. I miss the days before "personal brands" when people just made a personal site that said "Hi, I'm Joan, and here are photos of my cats" and that was a thing you could stumble into.

Basically, I'm making a gemini site, and will be posting it here when it's done. Like the TOR network, gemini requires special browsers or extensions to access, but it is a special protocol that removes all of the fluff from the web and presents simple, beautiful text. You can serve binary files separately if you really need to share images or video.
