I'm not new to the Fediverse, just moving my account from mastodon.technology to masto.rootdc.xyz. I like tech stuff, programming (when I'm allowed to do it). The current language I'm getting into is #kotlin. Also, I want to do some stuff in #rust.
Also, I just turfed my spare laptop running Pop_OS. So I gotta go rebuild that. Probably going back to straight Ubuntu.
please consider that minds can be changed. For example, Daryl Davis and Megan Phelps-Roper.
+ I'm old enough to remember the Web of the 1990s/ 2000s.
It was a maze. You followed hypertext links, stumbled into forums and early troll-caves, used Slashdot and GoTo, experimented with LiveJournal and Blogger.
It wasn't safe, it was filled with weirdness, appealed heavily to geeks and loners. Being on the web in that era was a serious trip.
But it wasn't corporate. It wasn't the tool of major governments, yet. It was defiantly decentralised, and when you were online...
... you felt free.
