steevc makes it to steemit

in introduceyourself •  2 years ago

I'm a long-time denizen of the web. I first got on-line in the last century using dial-up. I was into bulletin boards back then when most stuff was text. I'm a great lover of on-line communities that can bring together like-minded people from around the world. Can't find a good photo at the moment, but here's a drawing of me by a guy from Drawnalism when I was at a Twitter event.

I've used Orkut, Multiply, Twitter,, Diaspora, Facebook, Tsu, Minds, Bitlanders, and probably a load of other social sites to various extents. Generally you can find me there as steevc, but my real name is Steve Clark. I'm a Brit who got into computers at a fairly early age and has worked with them for most of my life. I'm a developer currently working with C++, but I've used many other languages. I'm a big fan of open source and have used Linux as my main OS for years. I'm fascinated by things like cryptocurrency and encryption.

I spent 2 years in southern Germany in my 20s, so I can speak at least one other language. I know bits of others.

For fun I play guitar. I've got a load of videos on my Youtube. Also got various tunes on Soundcloud that are better produced. This is all just for fun. I was in a community called Six String Bliss that produced collaborative albums. These days I mainly play at pub sessions.

I've done a fair bit of blogging for fun in the past. Will try a bit on steemit. Looking more for engagement than money.

Even your first post puts most current posts to shame lol...


Beautiful drawing!
Had not heard of Multiply :)


Multiply was a neat site to share stuff with friends, but it eventually died and became some sort of market for Asia. I used it for a fair while. The problem with all these sites is that your old posts get killed off, but I think I was able to extract my data. I have a few blogs. One is on a site I own, but it's too much effort to maintain.
