@derek Gemini is one of my favorite protocols!
@derek Nice, and even nicer when it's on Lbry :)
@derek I use gopher on my phone with DiggieDog. Gonna have to check this out.
@derek I love that the default port is 1965.
@derek Gemini and Solid could be an interesting combo to use...
@derek I don't see any reason why we need to jump ship. We can use things like #hugo to make our own pages simple and free of all the nastiness that make modern websites so awful. I agree that any media beyond simple images should be handled with external software, though, but then that software has to be URI-aware.
@PestToast Don't know what you mean. It depends on the client if linked images are shown inline or now. To you use Eloha browser for iOS?
@louis nah, I tried Ariane and Deedum from the f-droid store. Nether of them seemed to show images
I do like the idea of Gemini. There are many use cases where it's preferable over http, like personal blogs, sharing grandma's recipes, etc…
@cinnabarowl I've been loyal to Brave for almost a year now. NYE 2020 marked my second full year of being off the major social media silos but something deep inside me yearned for interactions of others so I decided to find my way to Mastodon and other "alt-tech" sites so after discovering DT's page on Odysee I've been trying to use Firefox more. DT's videos are very inspirational and I really like everything he would been a godsend 20 years ago when I left Windows 😂
@wmfu When I went full Linux in the late 2000s I found internet forums to be of great use!
...You know back then, when _forums_ still were a thing. 👴
However I really appreciate @derek 's and other Linux Youtuber's work for pushing FOSS technologies and making the greater public aware of them.
I always could resist the temptation of FB, Twitter, and that stuff. So Mastodon is actually my first and only social network! 😜
