I said something like this a few weeks ago, but I think (through all the doom and gloom) the Web truly has gotten better in the past decade.

  • Mastodon gaining real traction as decentralized social media
  • Blogging & RSS still thrive, though more niche (substack, patreon, etc)
  • Signal provides encrypted messaging and is open source & non-profit

And that's not even mentioning new tech like CRDTs that will make the Web even better. #optimism
