@jack ooohh .. will check it out later ... says he who already has too many web sites for his own good.
Does look interesting.
Reminds me I should also go look at what happened to my grid sites ....
@jack @JohnPhilpin @Ron The lack of transparency is a red flag. Who made this? Why? How? They're hiring but they don't even have an About page? Either they're genuinely useless at making websites or it's some Silicon Valley-esque bullshit being peddled.
Refer a friend, get a free domain Introducing Universe Coins
It's like a scam for which only stupid people would fall.
@jack @simonwoods @JohnPhilpin Maybe Jack only sent the link, but I thoroughly checked it out . . . for about 20 sec, reading their claim to be providing custom domains, then posted my no silos comment. Do pigs fly yet?
@simonwoods Maybe I'm just too old to appreciate the incredible promise in these amazing new technologies. That's why the old generations get swept away by the new thinkers. Excuse me while I go read my Whole Earth Catalog. This thing is really GREAT!!
@Ron I used pen and paper to achieve some tasks the other day. Unsure if I am allowed to associate with The Young People any longer.
@jack @JohnPhilpin @Ron @bradenslen Not to derail the derailment but I just discovered The Pudding even exists and quickly found an About page worthy of the name.
@simonwoods Hot takes aside, I thought Universe was a pretty neat tool when I last looked at it. These kinds of things can have really poor money strategies and still have novel ideas inside. So, yeah, I thought the editor was a nice, simple tool for building little web pages with blocks of text and pictures. I’m planning to use it for a project at the elementary school to see how the kids use it. (This seems like the rare technology that has enough color and expressiveness to be useful to me there—especially now that Byte is defunct.) If we can learn from the good tools, they can help us figure out how to craft the Indieweb. We will need more than just protocols.
@JohnPhilpin Every time they bring me pudding, I think they're just trying to shut up the old guy & all his stories. Maybe I should go turn on one of my radios. Chocolate is great, but I wish they'd use butterscotch more often. 😋
