Yeah, I'm skeptical of @ello. It's in beta. It's buggy. It's run by VC-funded white guys from Boulder, and it uses a monospace font. Maybe they'll sell us out in 3 years. That's nothing new — we've already been sold-out on FB. All these apps are temporary. Facebook wasn't the first, and won't be the last — but they have gotten real cocky with their perceived monopoly. We can change that. Ello doesn't have to be perfect, and we don't have to go in with blind hype. Let's show that we have alternatives, and see if we can improve things.
