Corentin makes a randomized blog-roll app for Spacehey
One of the weird joys of the early-00s web were the various randomizers -- click on a button and you'd be taken to a random person's page. They had the same thing, too, in that precambrian life-form, the "web-ring": Click here to visit a random page in the Hello Kitty web ring!
Now corentin has created a version of this for Spacehey: A little web app that serves up random Spacehey pages. You go here to input your Spacehey account, and then you can put a button on your profile page that, when someone clicks it, sends them to a random page; I've got the button on my profile now.
I'm a big fan of randomizers! Back in the early 00s they were great for serendipity -- the act of stumbling upon something you didn't know you wanted to find. Today's highly-sorted and -sifted algorithmic feeds at Facebook or Tiktok or Twitter tend to reward profiles that are already popular. Truly random picks are much weirder and thus, for my money, much better.
