Google wants websites to adopt AMP as the default approach to building webpages. Tell them no. Make your site lightweight on your own. No reason to help centralize the web under Google's control even further polemicdigital.com/google-amp-

Medium is no longer offering new custom domains as a feature. Get your own domain name and install a self-hosted blog on it. Stay away from commercial and hosted platforms. That's the best way to be independent, decentralized and stay in control.

The rat race of social media

Lovely work by @iconeo@twitter.com

"Should Brands Still Gate Content? (We Asked the Experts)" by @Spiralytics@twitter.com blog.spiralytics.com/should-br

"Welcome to the New Blog: Why we left Medium, and how!" by @elementary@twitter.com.

Good to see more sites excluding external JavaScript, analytics, social tracking scripts, etc.

Let's focus solely on what matters: helping people out through useful content.

Safe to safe that @axios@twitter.com @UrsulaPerano@twitter.com wins the race for the "WordPress/Automattic buys Tumblr" story. More social chatter than all the other 300+ stories combined. 100+ links too. They weren't even first to break the story. Excellent results for these 162 words 🚀

First item on the Tumblr to-do list for @photomatt@twitter.com: get rid of the "Oath family" message that takes the full screen. Thanks!

Perhaps Automattic should go after Blogger next. Another blogging platform with a "community even after years of neglect and confusion" 🤣

"How much carbon dioxide does your website produce?"

Nice project by @eatwholegrain@twitter.com

"MoviePass reportedly changed account passwords to prevent users from seeing films. The company’s model was bankrupting it"

What a de-growth hack: Make your subscription service hard to use to increase your profits. Milk it until all users get annoyed and leave.

"It is certainly much easier not to buy a fizzy drink or eat at McDonald’s than it is to function day to day without helping generate profits for one or all of Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple or Microsoft" theguardian.com/books/2019/aug

Good to see @Ecosia@twitter.com growing. And the trees have a three-year survival rate of 70% 🌳

"Since the beginning of this year, our revenue has increased by 60%. We can plant a lot more trees now. We used to be a small German company, but now we’re becoming an international movement."

Cool new WordPress plugin: Blackout, a Dark Mode widget, that lets your visitors enable/disable dark mode on your site wordpress.org/plugins/blackout
