I like the certificate model, but worry about the possibility of my client cert being stolen. Not an issue for most stuff, but daring to imagine what success might look like among the masses.
Along the lines of gemtext, I love that it is line based and simple. It is incredibly easy to hand-edit.
Some thoughts on my dive into #gemini so far:
I feel like we're really just scraping the surface of what is possible for gemtext in terms of the clients available. Folding link lists into menus, inlining same-domain images, image preview on hover, etc. should all be possible. There's no rule that says gemtext can't be made shiny and new.
I've spent way too much time this week obsessing over the #gemini protocol.
Edit: now with 100% less typos
@gdsk3k As for the Obama presidency, it hurts to imagine what might have been had the Dems killed the filibuster when they had the Senate.
But then, it seems like there's support for ending it this time around should they be in position to do so, which pleases me.
@gdsk3k My own position is that I personally preferred Warren, but then we had a primary and a bunch of people liked Biden better. Instead of being a child about that, I am supporting the best candidate available, who is Biden.
And actually, I've been pleased and surprised by Biden the candidate. I haven't found much not to like.
@CarlCravens I don't think so. In fact, it also might help line up your code the way the end keyword does in ruby or lua.
I might try it out myself just to see how it feels
@gdsk3k I tend to agree -- as much as it's popular to argue about whether or not "electability" is bullshit, it's clear that Biden has broader appeal than the progressives did.
The lesson I really wish progressives would take from this is that politics matters, and even though it's an odious game, it's one that must be played with a deft hand.
@gdsk3k It's true. In fact, that edge in polling was a big reason why Biden's perceived electability advantage netted him the nomination.
In terms of tracking, they're not any worse than Windows.
And the ability to run Linux and Android apps on them is kind of nice.
