Summary: Unlike the World Wide Web (WWW or Web for short), Geminispace has (thus far) kept corporate influence and corrupting advertisers completely shut out; for a better experience of the Internet (and of Techrights) we continue to recommend our capsule

THIS site has a lot of exclusive material left to publish. It's going to take months and we have a schedule for it. Misinformation/disinformation has mostly ruined the Web and we're trying not to depend on it too much (we still use RSS feeds extensively); our main presence online is IRC and this Web site. Techrights does not do any Social Control Media (disinformation as a "business model" for "engagement") or "apps" or "clown computing" or all that pseudo-"smart" stuff. We're traditionalists and it's widely being recognised that technology -- including the Web -- is moving in the wrong direction. This sentiment has gone universal. We don't wish to play along or participate in bad things.

"Expect a lot more output in weeks to come."Following the good news about Mr. Friedman falling on his sword (we speculated it would take several more months, not a couple of weeks) and bearing in mind that EPO runs from one blunder to another -- a subject we shall cover in the weekend -- we've decided to take a 2-day 'break' (recess from publication) and regroup for a better publication strategy, which revolves around video, Gemini and the Web (last priority). We made many code changes to that effect (the changes are visible to all in Git).

Expect a lot more output in weeks to come. Efficiency is considerably improved when focusing on substance, texts, and hard documents as opposed to misleading "tweets" and needless provocation. Grown-ups need to reject such traps, where censors and spies reward their victims (like an addiction) with "likes" and fake popularity, if not just the false impression thereof.
