It's like a scam for which only stupid people would fall.
@simonwoods OMG "Universe Coins"
@simonwoods I need that on a T-shirt
@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!!
@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.
@simonwoods you derail? Interesting about .. but no visual pudding essays?
@kicks I love seeing exhibitions of potentially great technology. Just wish we didn't literally put a value on ventures that appear to be built on little more than the most basic idea of the technology; for me it seems inevitable the idea will either die or be subsumed by the leviathans.
