If you mean server-side rendering+rehydration, please say server-side rendering+rehydration.

The problems don’t come from the server-side rendering part; they come from the rehydration.

There’s a fine line between “public discussion” and “public discussion between employees of the company making that one engine”. 😉

We fundamentally disagree. Based on the architecture of most framework-driven bloated single page apps today, the idea of separating concerns—much less progressive enhancement—isn’t even known about. This “gospel” had no disciples.

Replying to a tweet from @getify

The way I see it, the people encouraging progressive enhancement made almost zero impact. It wasn’t that the next generation misinterpreted the message; they never even got the message in the first place.

Replying to a tweet from @getify

Your talk makes it sound like well-intentioned people were trying to implement progressive enhancment, misinterpreted it, and that’s what got us to where we are today. That’s not how I see things. 99% of devs weren’t even trying to use PE.

Replying to a tweet from @getify

I completely disagree that progressive enhancement is in any way connected with the current state of big bloated single page apps—the devs building those aren’t misinterpreting anything; they’re not even aware of a different approach.

Replying to a post on adactio.com

Instead of using the phrase “progressive enhancement”, I now talk about the benefits and effects of the technique: resilience, universality, etc.

Great question! Yes, there are limits, but we’re generally talking megabytes here. It varies from browser to browser and depends on the available space on the device.

Replying to a post on adactio.com

Actually, I think the original WWW project got things mostly right. If anything, I’d correct what came later: cookies and JavaScript—those two technologies (which didn’t exist on the web originally) are the source of tracking & surveillance

@FutureSyncConf Rob Whiting asks:

Based on what you now know from the CERN 2019 WorldWideWeb Rebuild project—what would you have done differently if you had been part of the original 1989 Team?

Each shadow photon encounters much the same sort of barrier as its tangible counterpart does, a barrier consisting of only a tiny proportion of all the shadow atoms that are present.
