Simplicity (II) - Bastian Allgeier

Bastian reflects on a topic that's very close to (my) home -- the supposedly unavoidable Tooliganismn that is involved with working on the "modern" web.

React - Charlie Owen

Please read this post on why there's not only a problem with this popular JS framework, but how it actually hurts 'the web' (that was, as Charlie put it). It echoes my stance and resentiment against all client-side only JS 'app'ification, and that is even without the meta aspects about society and representation that Charly...

You Pay (Or Maybe You Don’t) - Heydon Pickering

What a treasure trove in times of face recognition software. But surely after all those...

Status as a Service - Eugene Wei

A very interesting article by @eugenewei about social capital and how social networks tap into our need to compete and feel somewhat better than the rest.

Can “Indie” Social Media Save Us? – Cal Newport, The New Yorker

A nice article about the IndieWeb, published on a paywalled site ("you have three articles left this month") 🤷🏼‍♂️. I find it a bit too focussed on servers and social media platforms, but with the right angle about 'engineered adictiveness'.
