RE: Witness Voting, OpenSeed and OpenLink

in #openseed10 months ago

I have been mostly silent during this whole Tron fiasco, mostly because there isn't much I can do to help and I walked away from Steem politics in 2018 shortly after my team presented at SF3. This decision had nothing to do with SF3, but rather some other other nastiness in the community that no longer seems to be crippling the judgment of any current leaders.

However, I've always been here, quietly working away at a project I hope will eventually attract more mainstream users and blah blah. You and I have talked about it. We're still in the game, just waiting to see if we will eventually have to rebrand. I certainly hope not.

I do want to tell you, though, that when I first considered getting a Steem account way back in the by-and-by days, your YouTube videos were some of the first I watched on the subject of Steem. So you've been a "staple" for me that pre-dates my actual onboarding experience with the platform. Since then you've always been here, and it's good to see this post making it clear that you intend to stick around regardless of employment factor with Steemit, Inc. Well, Steemhouse Publishing and I, as well as our small staff of editors and other folk, are planning to stick around, too, unless it becomes sadly clear that it's pointless and everyone on the platform leaves. So let's build something new from all of this, shall we? I'll be around, doing the usual. Thank you for everything.

Hi @rhondak! Nice to see you are still around. I'm glad you're still working on stuff here and how's TARC doing? I hope the need for it is starting to die down but I imagine it just stays the same like here.

You bet I'm still around. Well, at least I'm around on Steem. I ended up having to leave Appalachia completely. I'm living in Morocco now, but TARC still exists. We're re-branding to "Transatlantic Animal Relief Coalition" and working with some locals and a group called ERHAM on the Atlantic coast with TNR programs for both cats and dogs. I haven't posted about it on the Steem TARC account because of the Tron kerfluffle. I'm not taking any chances with more content just yet. But, long story short, after I released "High Kill," hostility got so bad in Southwest Virginia that I had to leave. I would have died there if I hadn't. I know I would have.

Holy shit. That's insane.

Morocco though. That's pretty awesome. I love Casablanca and thought I would visit but what are the chances it still looks like it did in the 40s? Although the movie was probably not really shot there.

I was pretty underwhelmed with Casablanca when we landed there. But I didn't see much of it. We drove through quickly on our way south. What I saw didn't look like the movie, for sure. I'm pretty sure it didn't look like it in the 40s, either. LOL

However, El Jadida is gorgeous. So is Sidi Bouzid, where we have a house. There is a post with pics on my blog from a couple of weeks ago. :-)

In other words, you guys go way back.

No, that's not really accurate. I've just been aware of his contributions to this platform even longer than I've been part of the platform, and am really glad to see he's not gone.

That's good. And keep up the good work.
