Feeding the (smol) pub


One of my favorite things on the small net is aggregators. These are places where you can read and discover other people’s pages. It’s a public feed of interesting (ph/gem/b)log. Some of the most popular ones include:


gemini://gemini.circumlunar.space/capcom/

gemini://calcuode.com/gmisub-aggregate.gmi

gemini://rawtext.club/~sloum/spacewalk.gmi


All the journals in an aggregator have that place in common, they are essentially neighbors. It’s not uncommon for journals to mention other journals and engage in conversation. It’s a much different kind of interaction than one can have with a reply button such as the one on Midnight. One doesn’t “reply” to a post — that mechanism isn’t there — instead, one mentions the other and builds on it.


So now Smol Pub has its own aggregator, which aggregates every posts from the running instance.
