Basecamp has moved their blog Signal v Noise off Medium.com and back to their control. DHH’s post is so well aligned with what we believe in for Micro.blog that it almost reads like part of our mission statement:
Beyond that, though, we’ve grown ever more aware of the problems with centralizing the internet. Traditional blogs might have swung out of favor, as we all discovered the benefits of social media and aggregating platforms, but we think they’re about to swing back in style, as we all discover the real costs and problems brought by such centralization.
Medium.com was swinging in the wrong direction, especially with the change last year to no longer allow custom domain names. I think 2019 is going to be a great year for blogging.
