A reminder: social media is not the Internet, and you can use the latter without the former pretty effectively. I wonder how long before a sort of 'primitive/retro Internet' movement takes root and spreads among the younger crowd - text-heavy, low-latency, self-curated/owned, free of the exquisitely-tuned engagement and telemetry.
Sometimes I get nostalgic and revert back to pure-text in as many places as I can. Linux makes this a little bit easier. Only the email bit was a little tricky to perfect. Here is the list of apps:
- elinks for text-only browsing
- newsboat for RSS
neomutt for email (I use a commercial email provider and a tool called offlineimap to transfer mail)
weechat, principally for IRC, but it also has plugins for Slack and Jabber.
Now I'm off to see if there's a way to update micro.blog with vim, vscode, or atom...
