I don’t visit AMP sites. Accelerated Mobile Pages are not web pages. They’re Google-friendly web apps that break the open web
AMP is an “open” web format as much as Office Open XML (.docx, .pptx etc...) is an “open” document format. No, Microsoft barged itself into consensus by leveraging its market penetration. Google is trying to do the same thing to the web
I have to keep using MS formats for docs since the business world refuses to budge
But I will not go gently into that Google night
Please rmemeber that Microsoft is sharing tons of patents with trolls who casually sue GNU/Linux when they will write another "we :heart: Linux" tweet.
*i open a website*
*it gives me a small electric shock*
ah i love the static web
To fight Centralization:
- Own your data.
- Archive your data online and off.
- Use decentralized services like Mastodon and Matrix and whatever whenever possible.
- publish to places that aren't facebook or medium (and if you must, only use central services for syndication.)
To fight user hostility:
- Use ad blockers and privacy badger
- If you can get away with it, use no-script or similar when possible.
- Stop using, or reduce your use of, platforms that profit from treating you poorly.

how many times running Harry Potter through a machine that replaces every lexical word with a close synonym until the resulting text can be published under fair use as a creative work distinct from the original
I introduced my teenage daughters to Racket today. The eldest is learning functions in school, so it should be a good match. She is also interested in drawing complex geometrical shapes, and Racket’s drawing packages look really good. Unless there are how-to videos (what they use for Minecraft), I will need to give them more tutorials, but it should be fun. We’ll see if it catches on!
