Listening to Track Changes: The Glut of the Platform Economy http://trackchanges.libsyn.com/the-glut-of-the-platformeconomy @ftrain what if the wired/medium etc paywall throttle didn't decrement the counter until you dismissed it? "do you want to use one of your monthly 4 on this?"

•Do early design work in small, invested groups
•Design in the open, but away from the bright lights of the big stage
•Iterate furiously early on because once it’s in the web, it’s forever
•Prioritise interop over perfect specs

Standards are documentation, not legislation. They explain how to make your code do the same thing as mine. Sadly, we write them in an imperative voice, and don't explain how we chose them. @slightlylate has more to say: https://infrequently.org/2018/06/effective-standards-work-part-1-the-lay-of-the-land/
