    According to Wired, the web now isn't dead, because Google says so. The real news is that Google is dead. wired.com/2016/04/wait-w…

    Any pub that's so idiotic as to proclaim a standard like the web dead is itself beyond dead. It's a special death. The dead dead. Dead!

    Wired couldn't just apologize to the web. Instead they had to say Google saved it. Insult + injury. Google is really not good for the web.

    The screwed up thing about big companies like google and their friends like wired, is they don't respect free things.

    Wired would be very careful before calling google dead. Might lose an advertiser or a quote from Larry, or Sergey or Eric.

    But the web? It's a doormat. We'll fuck it over as much as we like and no one will complain, because no one owns it. Which is like freedom.

    BTW, pretty sure Wired said the web was dead twice. Once in 1996 or thereabouts and once in 2010.

    Wired (in 1997): "The Web browser itself is about to croak. And good riddance." wired.com/1997/03/ff-pus…
