The function of a "Brand" is to suppress imagination. It reduces a generalized, often complicated, messy phenomenon to a convenient name.

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

Do you want to become one of the open sourcerors who know the spells to make servers work?

Step 1: install GNU/Linux as your everyday OS (or a *BSD or some other free code OS)

Step 2: get used to searching the web, forums, Q&A sites etc for help

Step 3: as much as possible, try to admin your system without using the GUI. Only use the GUI when you've tried and failed to do something in a terminal. Try again with the terminal first next time you try to do it, eventually you'll figure it out

Thank you again for the amazing services that Nixnet provides!
