website made by someone who describes themself as "a dipshit who doesn't know how to use computers" and hosted on a raspberry pi or some random VPS: loads instantly, well designed, easy to navigate
website made by fortune 500 company, with teams of designers, programmers, and servers in 8 countries: takes a full minute to load, layout shifting around the whole time, breaks if you have 1 browser add-on, the page you want can only be accessed via a third party search engine, gets worse every year
Imagine a regulation that obliges any ISP who measures and charges customers' according to their net traffic or time, has to pass on a standard royalty (eg 10%) to the providers of whatever net service the customer is paying the ISP to access. What consequences might that have for the way internet business works?
@agafnd It's also because they have different objectives. A simple user just makes a website to share content. Large companies make websites to track users and shove ads in their faces - the objectives will impact tools and performance.
We need more dipshits who don't know how to use computers working at large corporations.
@agafnd far from being surprising, the number of people involved and the inferior quality of the outcome are causally linked (C.N. Parkinson, Fred Brooks, ...).
A friendly mastodon instance primarily for shitposting, gays, and the glory of the free and open source software movement.
