Today at my personal journal: In which a pleasant random encounter at with @JohnShirley2023 gets me thinking about my '80s cyberpunk youth (or as much of it as you could have in small-town Missouri), and how this ties into the suddenly hot ! of decentralized Mastodon servers.

@jasonpettus Great post! I wish I was fortunate enough to be around in those days, but I at least got a small taste of what it was like with the 90s web scene. I’m really excited about the future of the fediverse and, even if it doesn’t take off, it seems I’ve finally found a part of the internet that can be unironically enjoyed again. And I truly thought that internet was long gone.
