Online Domains

Influencers. you talk about influencers.

Classic times were never up-righted by influencers but by leaders. Except in general or in local elections times, when every vote counts to ensure a position, there is no such positive things a influencers in real life.

People who lead a consultancy team or people with the strange ability of a Ka to build trust on her, being solely few. To influence from one to another, a highly organized and sophisticated activity in our society, in classic times, a person should be an example. An example to follow up.

Most websites, online domains, user-friendly software and digital places of my youth have influenced myself and some billions of people.too. Blogger may be a clear example. Built upon its own mission, vision and values. Distinct from the others, but integrated. With some adverts, too. To advert there is the need of design, aural or visual design.

But influencers, people or places  may lead or covert highly organized and sophisticated criminal activities

To buy, for no reason., "advertising space or promoted news stories—fake and otherwise—on their platforms, covert influence has become the new money laundering".

If you're going to commit an illegal act, it's best not to discuss it in e-mail. It's also best to Google tech instructions rather than asking someone else to do it

Take the failure post-mortems. 

Sure, some of them are "brave." 
  • The ones that candidly: talk about where the company vision was wrong detail
  •  how the product got beat by a competitor convey 
  • where the founders made bad decisions  

The ones that do the above do require some amount of self-reflection. 

 But those are the exceptions.

Accelerated Mobile Pages

Why a subset of HTML you ask? Well, mostly because web developers suck at their jobs and have loaded the web with a ton of JavaScript no one wants. Can't fault Google for wanting to change that. That part I can support. The less JavaScript the better.
One of the principles of the web, neutral or not neutral is the following one: The less JavaScript, libraries included, except for multimedia purposes, the better.

If is not met this requirement, there is the need of a subset. We know that from the ancient DHTML days, remember? Try to understand the Document Object Model, first.

Folks at Google work on Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) , a subtle recover of that old AS1 magic we knew in the past when there was the need to have a choice in between WAP and Flash Lite technologies.

Google works on AMP  understanding the media, that is, mobile. The common user of th web, does not care about tech. And developers work on behalf the ordinary and common people, like you and this yours truly.  That was why web standards were made. It's the audience, stupid.

More on the matter, flavoured with pros and cons : The two faces of AMP, JS on AMP Google AMP is Not a Good Thing, et cetera

Today’s average web developer doesn’t have the faintest clue what he’s doing and can’t do it anyway without sixteen libraries and frameworks. Solve that problem and AMP goes away.

To survive as an independent consultant at any age, and to remain meaningfully employable in digital design, you must bring something different to the table. You must bring value.
