There are a LOT of good conference talks this year at #apconf2020. Like, seriously, I can't believe how many are so good.

I'm going to highlight a few in particular in this thread (if I don't highlight yours, it's just due to lack of time, I was seriously impressed by all the talks)

@Laika thanks for sharing your reasons! I didn't know they were paying authors.

From my viewpoint the monetization and promotion points seem to be the strongest, since I don't know any alternative that addresses those.

For the other points I always vouch for static generated sites since you don't have to worry about security or stability, there are themes you can use so you don't have to mess with styles.
Not sure about free hosting providers for the cases you consume a serious amount of bandwidth though

@xj9 yeah that's apparent to me.
It's just sad as a reader to see insightful content feeding their centralized platform. I despise their registration wall, registration popup, gatekeeping content to keep up their monetization game. It just does not feel right

Cannot understand why smart people are still posting their writings to medium :fishthink:

As I was going through an existential crisis I started asking myself what would my dreamjob look like..
First thing came to my mind was Mozilla, only to find out about the massive layoff days after.
Then found out about their greedy execs and that saddens me even more.

Can't reconcile the foundation's mission with the facts

The Mozilla layoff is terrible - not only for the former workers, but also the web at large.

If we are concerned about the future of a more private & secure web, without a monopoly - we might want to double-down on our support of Mozilla to ensure that more people keep their jobs.

Being vocal about the direction of #Firefox & #Mozilla to appropriate channels is surely needed - less Google & more innovation.

Let's work to oust any leadership without the vision we all need for a better web.
