Early Adopters on Ello.

Ello is now officially a thing, and they're promising a 'no ads' social media alternative to Facebook. Hardly anything functions on Ello at the moment, but I kind of like the refreshing lo-tech aspect to it; limitations can force creativity and that's cool. Mind you, there have been some not-so-cool murmurings about Ello's business model; as in venture-capital-masquerading-as-indie-makers.

Another incarnation of The Man? We shall see. Ello is certainly appealing to social media's early adopters.

In the meantime, it's really fucking hilarious to watch all the Ello noobs stumbling around in the dark.

It reminds me of when Google+ started...all actors shouting on the stage and no one in the audience.

I'm hopeful. What's your Ello @? Mine is @theanimatedwoman.
