Same here. Thanks for the tip James!

Great to watch this video, and i really liked how you called the traditional social networking platforms as, "Matrix Control". And in this context, we need more decentralised platforms where the true essence of expression can be developed and this inturn can connect people with increase in peaceful aspect. It's great that you interviewed the founder of MINDS because i also heard about this platform but never tried to understand the core. Now, after watching it, i will definitely want to give it a try. Keep up this, awareness spreading, informative and mind opening work. Thanks for sharing and wishing you an great day. Stay blessed. 🙂

I have been thinking about checking out minds for a while...

At the moment, I am pleased with Steemit. I also like HubPages.com as a writer. I never liked Twitter. I tried out yours.org and did not like the setup. I will check out minds.com . Thank you for the research and leg work finding alternative platforms.

One of the great Wits of the Web from northwestern North America and Western Japan!

I had considered joining minds.com a while back as well. Though I am not necessarily a social media person (I am neither on f-book, Twitter nor youtube) I do follow James for quite a while basically through his website/podcasts.
My concern is simply that we cannot complain about the divide and conquer strategy of the powers that shouldn't be through their social media platforms and then hooray the alternatives that in the end follow the same narrative, namely keep the people in anonymity. We should get the people to go out and meet in person and talk to each other, interact with each other.
By saying all this and being an expat in China, I do understand the advantages of social media platforms. But I find it important to stress that, as always, a good balance between online and offline life is what everybody should strive for.

Oh yeah I’m on that one too . Twitter , Facebook , and YouTube can kiss my ass 😘

It's great to see minds.com has created a better rewards/credit system; we don't need social media clones, and local currency & reward systems are a great step forward.
