Manual Moreale hit the nail on the head with this quote from his latest post:

The web is not dying. The web is huge. The web is ever-expanding. The fact that the web is just the same 5 big websites is a fucking lie. It’s like saying the restaurant industry is the same 5 fast food chains. It is not. It’s up to you to decide to stop visiting those 5 sites and stop ingesting their fast food content.

It feels like when these people say “the web”, they mean “whatever platform I’m addicted to.” Might be time they started trying out that URL bar that appears at the top of every browser.
