This won’t be a full blog, just some thoughts.
I was looking into microblogging but not the popular ones.
I joined discord last year, when I wanted to listen a live stream of a translator of a web novel I was following. It is a cool piece of software.
I thought it was an open souce. I am a big friend of linux and stuff where anybody can come and code. Sadly it is not. It is the next big thing though. If the company goes public, I might invest in it. Keep an eye on this.
Anyway, discord is an amazing concept. It is a bridge between a traditional social media and the “new” easier, voice chat.
I was looking something like that but is open source. I didn’t find anything close.
I used to use identica before it changed to pump. It is still available but that seems to be dying.
I was not a big friend of diaspora. I installed that before but couldn’t keep that running. Also that project seems to be at a deadend.
Friendica looks ugly and I never really fall in love with it.
I just found mastodon. This seems to be viable.
I am not too into irc, so discord is not my thing. Microblogging, I am warming up to the idea. Mastodon seems to be my thing… I just need a server to run it.
Somewhat relating. I used to use ikiwiki to blog. Oh how time has changed.
why this post? A filler 🙂 I need to get to Day400
update: I gave into the big corps. I started twitter at the end of year
