Minds and Steemit

I was binge watching Youtube, and got extremely depressed at how their stupid social-media algorithm and penchant for censorship is hurting the web. (Here is a video where I discuss my decision not to start a youtube channel.

While researching Youtube, I discovered that thousands of youtube content creators are upset with the platform. I am even more delighted to discover entrepreneurs creating alternatives to Facebook and Youtube.

So, I set up accounts at both Minds and SteemIt and hope to post at these locations regularly.

These platforms are fine, but what I think we really need is to find ways to revive the independent web. The independent web is one where people own their own web domain and have a hosted web account. My Steemit Post for today talks about the positive role that human edited directories play in the independent web.
