> 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.

I wrote a very fragile script to interleave people's micro-logs.

Post about it:

Post about it on the shitty old big clunky web:

And what it looks like:

age poll (don't open its fucking huge it will probably break your browser) 

how old are you? i have included every age, the max range being the age of the oldest person ever recorded plus one and then over, so everyone's age should be on here :)

I have been thinking about a slightly simpler version of the protocol, but discovered today that it's already specced as the hypothetical Mercury protocol (not Gopher).

I just smashed out the first half of Re Zero season 2, it's been such a long time since I've marathoned an anime and I don't regret my decision

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 💙
