  2. It’s OK if people behave differently than what you consider to be “correct” or “appropriate”.

My favourite thing about John Siracusa is his honesty. He doesn’t hide his critical nature behind “just telling it like it is” or some other bullshit; he actually explains why he approaches things the way he does. The other trendy critical pundits are generally terrible.

The thing I miss the most from Feedbin; the newsletter address. Such a good idea that I can’t wait to get back.

Awesome. ✌

Path is dying.

Yet more proof that when it comes to the closed, privacy invasive web you cannot compete against Facebook. Also @manton continues to be right with increasing certainty; the only viable alternative is the open web.

I’m looking forward to the character restriction on Micro.blog replies. My tendency to ramble is bad for my ambitions to better study and write about a variety of topics.

If we’re telling people to not use AMP we also HAVE to tell them to make their websites usable;

  • As light as possible. You are not allowed to spend people’s data with your bullshit scripts.
  • Free of invasive tracking. You are not allowed to destroy people’s privacy.
