My attempt at having an Instagram page failed miserably – within a day or two, no less! I know that enough of you wanted an account for the website that you could follow and to you I apologize. I wish more people had the sense and willingness to turn to decentralized platforms (in which case I would be among the first to embrace a change).

A word of advice for all you established and wannabe influencers: do not allow any significant part of your livelihoods to be in the hands of Facebook (Instagram) or Google (YouTube). Always maintain a website or a podcast or whatever else and do so on your terms. Otherwise, carry on censoring and filtering yourselves and your content for eternity… or at least until you get #demonetized or #deplatformed just because.
