It's even worse than it appears..
We still need a simple user-facing storage system that apps can be given access to via OAuth. All the hard stuff like assigning a domain is done via the user interface. Cost per month about what Dropbox costs.#
Tantek is right. Read every word in this piece. The only thing I'd change is calling this "IndieWeb" -- which is imho redundant. It's like saying "WetRain." Everything he says that applies to "Indie" applies to the web as a whole. Otherwise, right on.#
2017: "We're worse than stuck. Twitter hasn't moved in a decade. Google owned then abandoned RSS readers. Facebook smothered linking."#
Today we remember the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol, as part of an attempt to overthrow the government of the United States. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
