BRING BACK THE DAYS WHEN YOU COULD LEARN WEB DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT WITH "VIEW SOURCE".
@sanspoint I mean... my site is near unreadable with 'view source' but that's just because I'm stripping unnecessary whitespace, the inspection tools in Firefox and Chrome can fix that. I do use a static generation tool on the final version to keep headings in sync easily, but my templates are pretty 'thin' and my development methodology consists of me tinkering with a big single file until it works and *then* slicing it up, so it's still quite readable once pretty-printed.
@mike @sanspoint even nowadays, on Linux and *BSD, your operating system comes with the tools to inspect all code running on the system, to patch it, to improve and recompile it and to send fixes, features and detailed bug investigation reports back upstream, and I think that's a beautiful thing about this free software world.
@sanspoint There's no going back in time... how can we move forward in a way where we have the same advantages? (e.g., look at how source is handled in Beaker Browser with DAT). Also, given that surveillance capitalism was birthed by the web, it's clear that view source didn't teach us any ethics - how do we make sure we incorporate that into future systems?
