Solution: within the next 5 years we need Gemini to become a mature contender to the web
@sir What is Gemini?
@sir Oh, I didn't know about this project, this is amazing, thanks!
@sir How do you propose we do that?
Also, how advanced (or simple) would you say Gemini has to be for that to happen?
@sir imo that would mean giving Gemini all the worst parts of the web. What is the web for, who runs it; these questions go unanswered in your takes. I think programmatically building our homes, making enclaves for our culture, is best than dragging the entire world with us. The entire world doesn’t understand what’s bad about the web. It’s 1% of people. So live for those people and leave the web to the rest
@am at no point did I suggest that the necessary improvements to gemini would involve bringing parts of the web to it
@sir so how would you make it a contender
@am make it embrace its niche so effectively that it becomes a compelling alternative for the web in its niche
Right now the execution of gemini is pretty immature; clients are hard to use, buggy, and provide a poor experience. Servers are not very flexible. The spec needs to be refined. What we have today is not the maximum potential of gemini even without expanding its goals.
@sir so, lower the barrier to entry with better UX
I think Gemini could become a very good “document” network yes, I like the idea of building more tools to allow for manipulating and sorting information; I mostly wonder how one can optimise and extend all this while enforcing that it remains, above all, human scale — but you didn’t say this. I’m just wondering
@sir its already done :)
