@jordan31 Gemini is basically a web protocol that communicates with pages written in a lite version of Markdown. It’s 80,90% text based. And it fills the gap between gopher protocol, which a potato plugged into your wall socket could run, and the modern web, which is more and more complex and hardly private.
Gemini is built on maintaining privacy. Cookies and site referrals / tracking are literally impossible by the protocols design. And etc etc.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
