Changes are coming

I'm shaking things up here at HAWSEPIPER's Afloat Global HQ/Home for the criminally underappreciated.

 No, my career as the world's first middle-aged plus-sized male underwear model is still not taking off.

 I'm changing how I consume media and interact with the world a bit... which is a fancy way of saying that I'm joining some new sites and going to start backing off of others.

     I was never a fan of Twitter. I quickly discovered that Twitter is mostly a platform for actors and people with a lot of free time to show off their great success at getting by on minimal IQ.

 Not that I'm bragging about my IQ. If I was wicked smaht, I'd be working from home, not on a floating metal sausage cart.

 I started using Gab, an uncensored, apolitical improvement on Twitter. I say 'apolitical' but it does skew conservative, as that is the political bent of people who seem to get kicked off of and have 'technical' difficulties with Twitter. And so far... I like it a lot.

   I'm also using Infogalactic, a wiki that is in beta development with the goal of reducing poltical bias and openly labeling opinion and bias where it exists.  So far so good there, too, but its' dependent on evolution and the quality of editing as time goes on.

 Early days, yet, for both, yet both look good to me.
