Apart from cryptocurrencies which currently gain a lot of audience because Bitcoin swiped over $3000 per BTC recently and miners bought virtually every piece of powerfull graphics hardware another thing which is trending silently is distributed social networks.
Most people which are encouraged trying them are probably recruited from geeks or people who are pissed by facebook or twitter. Friend of mine who tried Mastodont which is one of such distributed social networks told me that most people who try it usually post one single post which states something like "Hi!" or "Hello!". It is something like mandatory inauguration post. This blog suits the same role for this page. It says "Hi!" to the world.
