DHH blogs about giving a chance to smaller companies to help fix the problems with massive tech companies controlling so much of the web:
The world is full of alternatives to the Big Tech offerings that give you 95% of the utility for 0% of the regret. But if you can’t even be bothered to give up 5% to help an alternative along, you also can’t be surprised when the alternatives are so few and far between.
This is how I’ve been feeling about Instagram. I hear people complain about Facebook all the time. But then some of those same people turn around and post photos to Instagram instead of their own blog.
