I think what excites me about things like #gemini is that it's simple enough I can wrap my head around it and a nice community around it. Gemini will probably never "take over the world", and I question if that's even desirable. It's just fun to play with and I like seeing what people can do with it.
SCI-HUB NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Do you have a few dozen gigabytes of free diskspace and a machine that can seed it via #bittorrent?

It's honestly making me a little emotional, because my family never inherited our ancestral language. My grandfather's generation were taken from their families and forced into indian boarding schools where they beat you for practicing your culture.

Anything using tokio takes *forever* to compile! The pervasiveness of async in the Rust ecosystem has been hell for compile times. Async should *not* be the default in most cases. If you're writing a cli app with an http client you probably shouldn't be using tokio. Long compile times are an anti-feature.
I like FOSS, Rust, and Linux
BLM! Trans rights!
Come read my random thoughts.
