One of the most noticeable things about Gemini is that it is text-based. Sure, it can support images but, depending on the client, these are mostly left hidden. Gemini gains a lot of its identity from this emphasis on text.
A few days ago on Mastodon, I came across a very useful toot by Fixato. He had provided a comprehensive shell command for updating you TLS certificates in light of the recent update to the agate server.
Nothing much to report here. I updated the capsule structure to try make it more minimal and even easier to manage.
Now, I only have one page (Gemlog) for all my posts.
I’ve added a new ‘feed’ section to my capsule. It uses ‘comitium’ by alex/nytpu.
Alex’s Capsule Comitium
The timing of comitium’s release was perfect. I have recently been browsing gopher a lot more and I was missing the ability to subscribe to feeds.
More on the alternative internet.
Problems, in the best sense Much of the Gemini ‘content’ I’ve found so far, at least, some of the most engaging and unique, centers on technical questions about Gemini itself - how to set it up, navigate it, write in it, etc.
Navigation Part 1
ephemerality: content seems less ‘solid’ than on the web, less well mapped out and less defined. A corresponding idea:
‘Maps’ are ways of drawing boundaries, of creating identities.
