This is great, too:
> Beneath the visual surface of your computer is an old and powerful magic, a silent but quick stream of energy that the computer draws from for power. This magic is hidden but always present, like the sacred well held in the base of a cathedral.
> You want to make a webpage because they are cool.
> You want to make it yourself, by hand and for free, because *you* are cool.
> This zine is for those who have not made a site before, especially those who don’t consider themselves coders.
For anyone using my lace thing from earlier (https://linuxrocks.online/@uoou/105757963578466281) for #gemini stuff, this is handy...
watch -n 300 -c lace nope
I wrote a very fragile script to interleave people's #gemini micro-logs.
Post about it:
Post about it on the shitty old big clunky web:
And what it looks like:
Good morning! This is my face https://www.instagram.com/p/CLWE3QNHAaC/?igshid=9tzb4xrpun1g
Bit "clickbaity?" @ChrisWere ;)
Imagine my surprise when it was about fountain pens... of which I love and have a vast collection!

I have been thinking about a slightly simpler version of the #gemini protocol, but discovered today that it's already specced as the hypothetical Mercury protocol (not Gopher).
#Lagrange v1.1.3 is out with a few more fixes.
- crash on remote bookmark deletion
- possible shutdown crash
- URL decoding vs. reserved chars
- AppImage: improved compatibility
- Windows: portable build uses included "userdata" subdirectory
We should have more than 200 Gemini capsules indexed on gemini://medusae.space before monday!
And we'll have some new features to announce soon too!
I really love the Geminispace and its community.
Good points here @Sandra
But I think even the idea that "Gemini can replace web pages (blogs, news posts etc)" is wrong. Gemini presents an alternative, for when you want things fast and simple, and for when you want to be sure that every page will be as fast and simple as the next. And yes, as you mention, for when you want to tinker and explore in a cool new space.
I don't think Gemini is supposed to make "dev life any simpler", or "decrease the scope of the web". It's just something new, something different, that some of us have taken a liking to, each for our own reasons.
To use your analogy -- Gemini isn't a bike while the Web is a car. Gemini is a pedestrian. There's great value in walking, but I wouldn't want it to be the only mode of transportation.
Thanks for giving me some food for thought 💙
