Brent Simmons – inessential – You Choose

Brent Simmons wrote a great post on his blog that I enjoyed reading:

You choose the web you want. But you have to do the work.
A lot of people are doing the work. You could keep telling them, discouragingly, that what they’re doing is dead. Or you could join in the fun.
Again: you choose.

I think this is so true! The web doesn’t have to be crappy, bloated, slow and covered with annoying ads. It also doesn’t have to be a corporate-owned platform like Twitter.

Tools to publish web content very cheaply are MORE available today than they ever have been! And RSS still exists, with plenty of ways to consume it.

So grab an RSS reader, like or any you prefer, and start enjoying the clean web that still exists.
