2009: All I need is HTML and CSS to put a site!
2019: All I need is Docker, Kubernetes, Jekyll, Caddy, GitHub, macOS, 8 GB+ RAM, Chrome Canary, React and a Twitter account!
Look. I’m all for the Web. But we CANNOT dismiss the fact that a lot of it is built on top of tools we lost a lot of control over.
@jalcine funny, but *luckily* things are not quite that bad ;)
@jaywink They are. Now Websites are basically invisible unless you have an application that emulates 4/5 of an operating system, desktop environemnt and potentially a partially closed-source compositor.
@jalcine Nah. You don't need to follow all the trends. None of the things you listed are even partly required to run a website, seriously. A funny joke but there is nothing reality about that.
@jalcine Just upload that HTML and you're good to go.
@jaywink I mean, I _believe_ that. But my comment's more in line with Rachel's thoughts: https://rachelandrew.co.uk/archives/2019/01/30/html-css-and-our-vanishing-industry-entry-points/
@jalcine but after all... "nobody cares about technical points ! It must work <period>"
@charly I don't follow. Technically sound and reliable solutions have always mattered in my line of work.
Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
