A brief (out of character) statement on the absolute state of the modern internet and why I made this site.
You may be asking yourself why this site looks like something from the 90s.
Well, it's really quite simple. Do you ever feel like the internet just
isn't what it used to be? Everything feels so bland. The web today is full
of sites that are packed to the brim with fancy scripts to mask the lack of content available on them. Not to mention
the amount of data they collect on you.
Everyone uses the same Wordpress templates making every site look the same and thus making everything feel completely devoid of personality. The internet is now run by a handful of massive companies and their only interest is sucking your attention span, harvesting your data and keeping you addicted to repetitive and sterile feeling platforms.
Long gone are the days when each internet user was a hobbyist and had their own unique place and identity on the web. At the time of creating this site, I am 24 years of age. I missed out on the supposed "golden age" of the internet. This is my place online that is not owned by any social media company. This site exists purely for the fun of it. No profit is being generated, and the design is something entirely of my own making.
I encourage anyone reading this to have a go at making their own site from scratch. It's a lot of fun and is a small step towards a more free and decentralised internet.
