Scripting News: May 20, 2017 |
I think we have to work on climate change and the fascism that's trying to boot up in the US. Our systems for news suck, and there are obvious ways to improve them if we put our minds to it. And I think a new incompatible feed format not only doesn't move us toward solving those problems, in a very small way (not worth worrying about) it moves us away from solving them. By using bandwidth that could be used to foster working-together, perhaps. By making things that would otherwise interop, not interop.

If developers have a hard time using XML in their apps, if that's the problem, why not attack it right there? Work to make it easier. I work in Node and the browser, and in both places XML and JSON are equally easy to use. The same could be done for any environment. In fact in the browser, XML is integrated deeply into the programming model, because the web is made out of XML.

André Staltz - The Web began dying in 2014, here's how
The Suggest strategy is being currently deployed through Google Now, Google Assistant, Android notifications, and Google Home. None of these mentioned technologies are part of Web, in other words, not part of “browser-land” made of websites. The internet is just the underlying transport layer for data from their cloud to end-user devices, but the Web itself is being bypassed. Schmidt’s vision for the future is one where internet services are ubiquitous and personalized, as opposed to an experience contained in web browsers in desktop machines.

Against an Increasingly User-Hostile Web -
The Way Forward

If you want to protect yourself (as a user) from predatory web marketing companies and defend the open web, there a few things you can do today at an individual level.

Install a content/ad blocker for your browser: I recommend uBlock Origin (available for Firefox, Chrome and Safari on most platforms). You can also complement this with the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Privacy Badger tool that protects you from invasive ads and third-party tracking.

Against an Increasingly User-Hostile Web -
>We're quietly replacing an open web that connects and empowers with one that restricts and commoditizes people. We need to stop it.

Lots of information and links clearly spelt out. Tempted to quote all of it, but here is one more.

> Pay for services and content that you like, if you are able. If you like reading The Guardian, for example, consider subscribing. If your favourite YouTube channel is on Patreon, consider pledging a small amount per video. If you like services like that charge in return for a useful service, buy it. There's mutual respect when both the user and the service provider know what basic service they are buying/selling.

Scripting News: Wednesday, November 1, 2017
There is no organization repping the interest of the open web. I know people say that the EFF, Mozilla and the W3C do, but any organization that is trying to force HTTPS on the web, using the power of browser vendors to enforce it, is not repping the interests of the open web. So that cuts out EFF and Mozilla. And the W3C has unfortunately been controlled by big tech companies almost since inception. #
A hypothetical open-web-repping organization could come out of journalism or academia. But it would have to be rooted with two things: users and open tech. And that's it. #
I don't care how much money anyone makes. Some things' value come from being open to anyone, and those projects consume money, they don't make it. #
Think of Central Park, for those familiar with New York. Or any public resource that's set aside for everyone to use. That's the web. It's not here so Google and Facebook or the NY Times or Washington Post can have a business model. It's not here for them to mine, exploit and leave a wasteland where once there was promise. #

“The Web began dying in 2014, here's how” by André Staltz
Before the year 2014, there were many people using Google, Facebook, and Amazon. Today, there are still many people using services from those three tech giants (respectively, GOOG, FB, AMZN). Not much has changed, and quite literally the user interface and features on those sites has remained mostly untouched. However, the underlying dynamics of power on the Web have drastically changed, and those three companies are at the center of a fundamental transformation of the Web.
