Midnight Pub

The smolnet


Gemini space is giving me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside, like finding a secret spot as a kid that you then share with your friends. It is open to everyone but still feels hidden, and it somehow feels much more meaningful to me than the big web.

My parents were among the first to have met each other over the very early internet, on a blogging platform that must have been very similar to this place. As a digital native I never experienced those times when websites were still obscure things and bloggers hosted their own servers, and I thought I never would. But here we are and I am excited to explore this space and contribute to it in what little ways I can!

Gemini space is really neat,
The folks are all nice and they're sweet,
But roving poets they go,
Leave limericks on you po-
-sts—a surprising little treat!
