@wesley Some Chinese media, they want to keep as many users as possible, so they did put many effort in preventing others to get their contents outside their platform. Fucking China!

That’s enough, it’s the problem of the society and government (did nothing in stopping this kind of monopoly ), I knew it. So thanks to your kindness !
@wesley RSS/ATOM are good examples of the nice things we can have if we use standards instead of apps.
@wesley RSS is the one great concept we mostly forgot about.
I am not sure what happened. Web 2.0, MySpace and Facebook I guess?
@doxanthropos You're right, it wasn't about centralization at all at its inception! It even had some sort of decentralization in form of OpenID, so you didn't have to make a separate account for every blog you wanted to comment on, but it still got us to the point we are in today: hypercentralization and AJAX turned into a total shitshow!
And yeah, I'm also not into this Web 3.0 thing at all, Web 2.0 became something really bad regardless of that.
