When is the next election in the 19th Court District in Texas against Ralph Strother? Is there a general campaign donation we can give to make sure more rapist do not walk free without trial?

Seriously, no matter what path you choose is you stop by chat.indieweb.org - 2018-12-11 any of us will help you get up and online anytime.

Personally, I recommend @reclaimhosting. It's $30 a year with a Domain and you get unlimited toys (up to two gigs)

If you want turnkey, everything just works, blogging and community try micro.blog ($5 a month blogging/$10 with podcasting)

I am leaving WordPress as well. I am going with a few static HTML pages (feel free to remix) https://jgmac1106homepage.glitch.me/ and a Known blog....Known rocks...https://quickthoughts.jgregorymcverry.com

There was value in social media. it did bring publishing to the masses.

Having a blog or website takes work... it reflects privilege. Literacy always has. Technology does not change that.

As educators, we took the wrong lesson from Web 2.0. It wasn't, "Ohh wow now nobody needs to know HTML!" It should have been, "Oh shit...now everyone needs to know HTML"

We are paying for this ignorance. We need to do what teachers have always done since time eternal. Help to build our communities.

The web is no different. Don't play one platform to rule them all. That got us in this mess.

Fight for open standards and protocols. Encourage the Commons, most importantly just be able to answer the question, "My url is..."

You can never build a village when somebody else owns all the land.

nope...no way gets that honor. Belongs to deadheads. Engineers stealing face staring at the Marvel of the Wall of Sound, First set lists on APRANET in the 70' online fandom first annotation...the Grateful Dead, first podcast: dead songs, JPB, me personally been trading shows on etree since 98, legal torrents, 13,000 tracks on archive.org now....download shows...friends don't let friends low bit-rate.

The vibe of the Well. The vibe of the Web...so yeah guess you are correct. The bus came by we all got on and Cowboy Neal would have been one helluva blogger.

I love me some graph paper recently, ,my thinking on paper gets more and more non-linear as writing doesn't exist in some false online and offline dichotomy
