The Trickster Diaries/Chapter 59
I’d read about Ello. Big article in The Guardian of London. It presented itself as the green, commercial free, no personal info sharing or selling, zero censorship alternative to Facebook, Twitter, etc.. It was conceived and launched by a small group of artists and designers in late 2013 but received virtually no American press. It was underground. Happy to BE underground. Just my thing. So, intrigued, I clicked on the link at the end of the Guardian article and requested an invitation.
And today, some months later, the invitation arrived.
What to do? It was, after all, social networking, and I was reluctant to get involved. Internet communication didn’t seem to work so hot for me. I’d acquiesed to a reclusive lifestyle and preferred things that way. And though I loved seeing and hearing from Jones, Liz, one or two others, they were rare exceptions to my rule of solitude.
Except, well, could be a cost effective way of marketing my visual art, yeah? Could also be a way of promoting my yet to be scripted new film.
