Body shaming the Web

Maciej Ceglowski has posted the transcript of the excellent and very funny talk he gave at Web Directions.

There are brief synopses of classic works of Russian literature as well as a discussion of the 21st century ailment: “chickenshit minimalism.”

But the problem is serious:

“If present trends continue, there is the real chance that articles warning about page bloat could exceed 5 megabytes in size by 2020.”

Bloat is no joke. My dog died from it last year. It came on suddenly and within two hours she was gone. I loved that dog.

Don’t let the same thing happen to the web.

Act now. The website you save may be your own.
