Recent thoughts about small-net and simple life
I haven't written anything in past few days, but I have some thoughts which should be written.
One of the most productive author in small-net is Solène. She is writing almost everyday on many topics, and she has many interesting findings. She is active in Geminispace, and also in Gophersphere. Last days she has been describing, day after day, of [The Old Computer Challenge: day 7].
- First thing is that this is that magic of small-net, that people are able to organise and communicate around interesting topics like "The Old Computer Challenge". In traditional net, it could take ages to organise such thing.
- Second thing, not counting that Solène's posts are worth reading (and she isn't the only person who described her challenge), is that whole idea of this challenge is so close to small-net base ideas. We don't need the most powerful computers to do the most useful, and self-developing things.
There are many content aggregators in Geminispace (CAPCOM, Geedit, Sloum's Spacewalk, Midnight Pub, self-curated Comitium instances etc.). But there are only one content aggregators which is self maintained like [Antenna]. You will see new content from authors who want to do so. There won't be any inactive sites, content which isn't approved by authors. Only content which is manually submitted by the author will be listed on that aggregator's page.
The next interesting author in small-net is [Christina's capsule]. She is also active on Geminispace and Gophersphere. Maybe the idea of asking questions, which is similar to chain letters, don't look very revealing. But her capsule by for that questions gather responses from many active, and productive small-net authors.
Third new place, which aggregate content form various author, is [Tinylog timeline generated by gtl] hosted by Bacardi55. This page is a good start point to go into Tinylogs. This topic is, in last days, a bit less popular, but there are some number of active Tinylogs and now it's easy way of looking at it.
I've started reading Gemini hashtag on "toot tui" command. It's convenient with "g" + "public hashtag timeline". TUI version of [toot - Mastodon CLI client] has some interesting features, and for me it's above average of CLI tools. As I have written, I had problem with following of Gemini's content on Mastodon. This way fit into my workflow.
I've migrated back to mcabber, from Profanity IM.
I started to learn emacs. I am planning to write something about it. It's not my first attempt to do so. For now there aren't too much to write about.
But while I was looking for some good entry tutorial (not impersonal shortcuts list) for emacs, I thought that maybe I will summary my vim adventures.
