I work for a #WiderWeb, a near-future responsive web with:
🌸 3 display modes: flat, portal & immersive
🌸 3 control types: page, overlay & spatial
🌸 new inputs: wands, gestures & voice
🌸 more hugs, fewer thugs

🌸 Theme 2: We'll soon be interacting with the web using new input methods like hand gestures, our voices, and tracked wands.
🌸 Theme 1: The web is gaining another dimension, adding 3D and AR/VR to the existing 2D web.

Are there software devs successfully using Patreon to fund middleware? I'd love to find a community-oriented model for funding PotassiumES at a level where it could become a solid foundation for the wider web.

Today is a big feels day on roughly four fronts. Ooof.
I bought a monthly subscription to a movie theater because I find it deeply relaxing to sit in the back corner of the theater and write lists on my handset while an action movie plays out. Something about the combination of fictional excitement and daydreaming is quite nice.
Oh, hey Seattle.
