Signal v Noise (aka SvN), the famous Basecamp blog, is also leaving Medium, joining the movement towards re-de-centralization of blogs. 👍🏻
I’ve been using Brid.gy since I started using Webmentions on this site, to get mentions from silos (Twitter mostly) back to the contents. This is an awesome service.
People tend to be lazy (I am often) and chose the easiest tool to do the job, even if it’s not the best one. Medium is the new Blogger, but with a much nicer content editing UI, and a cleaner presentation of content to readers. People can create and account and start publish in a few minutes, it’s really easy. But how can all this be free?
Enough. I’m fed up with Disqus. It’s been useful, easy to plug on this blog, but it’s a mess for web performance, and I don’t own my data, so… bye bye. Webmention is now a great alternative, with more people implementing it, so let’s try to keep only that.
