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