Replying to a tweet from @cramforce

When I say “Google is now strongly encouraging publishers to only publish AMP”, I mean AMP pages without a corresponding regular web page.

Cue semantic chicanery about AMP being regular web pages (spoiler: they are not).

They definitely are regular web pages! Like there is literally nothing you could possibly argue that makes them not a web page. How do you define “regular web page” in a way that it could exclude AMP pages? Jeremy Keith Jeremy Keith Tony Haile

I’m just saying: Web pages containing custom attributes is perfectly normal and doesn’t influence whether they are web pages or not. Whether you put an amp attribute on your HTML element or not certainly doesn’t change whether that document is a web page or not. Jeremy Keith Jeremy Keith Tony Haile Trek, Drugs & Jem’hadar

Yowza! Far from questioning AMP’s right to exist, I want it to exist and compete on a level playing field—without being propped up by an unfair advantage in search results. Classic fascism, that. adactio.com/notes/15673

A thing that shows how webby AMP is is seeing it inside Safari inside of Twitter. Google not involved, format benefits Twitter’s users. Compare to other formats that are mandatory-or-close to show up in other dominant platforms, but no 3rd parties can leverage/influence. Jeremy Keith Jeremy Keith Tony Haile Malte Ubl
