Skip to Content now on the Gemini space

Hi there,

Just a quick note to let you know my personal website is now available on the Gemini space too.

Get a Gemini client and see you at gemini://

But Why?

1. Because I can #

Because I can! - classic geeky answer I know.

I’ve been hosting my own server on the Web for quite some time, and it’s much, much easier to set up a Gemini server. So, feel free to give it a go yourself.

2. Because of what Gemini stands for #

The second reason is that I like what Gemini stands for.

As per the FAQ:

Gemini may be of interest to people who are:

  • Opposed to the web’s ubiquitous user tracking
  • Tired of obnoxious adverts, auto-playing videos and other misfeatures
  • Interested in low-power computing and/or low-speed networks

I’m interested in the first two for philosophical and political reasons. I care a bit less about the last one, but it’s a nice touch (think of the environmental reasons).

3. To produce more content #

To cite the FAQ:

Gemini already has a surprising number of client and server implementations in existence […], but the real shortage right now is not of software but of content […] The greatest contribution you can make to the project is to be a part of this process.

So, enjoy about 100 articles spanning 4 years!

Thanks for reading this far :)
