The rise of Alt-Tech is going to become more Vox Day

Three things happened in September.
1.    Twitter blocked links to Vox Popoli.
2.    I stopped tweeting on Twitter and moved to #Gab.
3.    Monthly site traffic grew from 2.83 million pageviews to 2.97 million pageviews. 

Conclusion: Twitter is officially irrelevant with regards to site traffic. Traffic over the October-December period will either confirm or contradict that conclusion.

Regardless, next week, the rise of Alt-Tech is going to become more apparent. Project Big Fork is already partnering with Brave and Gab. Plans for other alternatives are already in the works. The cultural high ground of social media cannot be conceded to the SJWs who run it.

Although the balance of resources looks imposing, this is a series of battles that are eminently winnable due to the Impossibility of Social Justice Convergence. Remember, the more an institution converges towards the highest abstract standard of social and distributive justice, the less it is able to perform its primary function.

As long as Alt-Tech focuses on its primary functions rather than upon becoming a reverse image of the SJW-converged social media institutions, its victory in the long term is inevitable. This is the beginning of our Gramscian long march.

But we will need your help, in a wide variety of ways. On Monday at 7 PM Eastern, I'll be holding an open Brainstorm for all the Dread Ilk and everyone else interested in supporting what I am calling the Alt-Tech Disconvergence. Invites will be going out to the OGs, Brainstormers, and VFM first, as there is only room for 1,000 seats.
