This latest @matt@write.as post (write.as/matt/what-would-a-rea) accompanies my (slightly sarcastic) Web3 analysis (baer.works/issues/web3) with some ideas on what a true iteration of the Web should look like.

"I was reading news and apparently, the Eagles beat writers are predicting that the Broncos will play in Eagle's Stadium against the Eagles. It was intriguing."

uhh... wat. Was this email written by AI?

Thank you to everyone who bought something this weekend!

I haven't talked about it much here, but on my @matt blog I've mentioned that Write.as finally became modestly profitable earlier this year. It's only enough to sustain a single full-time developer (me), but it means I can keep building this, @writefreely, and our other projects indefinitely.

Shopping weekend 2021 

We'll have a few sales on Write.as throughout the weekend! But I let this important national holiday slip my mind until today, so not all sales are live yet.

Right now, you can get:

- 25% off our yearly Pro subscription: write.as/start/pro
- 33% off the @writefreely iOS app: apps.apple.com/us/app/writefre

And there's plenty more to come. I'll post here and on our @deals blog when everything is available 🙂

I'm wondering if it makes sense to add a new customization option to @writefreely / @write_as: the ability for posts to live on a sub-path, instead of on the top-level of your site.

Would love to hear your feedback on the forum: discuss.write.as/t/feedback-wa

Considering making some changes to the @write_as Free plan:

- A limit on overall number of posts
- Closing new Free registrations for a few months, to personally give me some breathing room

Would love to hear your thoughts on the forum: discuss.write.as/t/potential-c

It's not great for Web2 things like social media because... you can't actually delete anything.

Everything is a cryptographically linked list in Web3, and everything added to it is permanently enshrined there -- not just good things, but bad things: abuse, harassment, doxxing, etc. 🤨

My research project for the last few days has been honestly figuring out whether "Web 3.0" is anything to care / think about / pay attention to.

I've actually had some nice, level-headed discussions with people on 🐦 and we've concluded that its real-life applications are... financial things. That's about it.

(Made this for fun this weekend. Would love any feedback 🙂)

Good to see Facebook being honest about their rebranding, at least. metabook.fyi

Was gifted an old Lenovo Yoga with Windows 8.1 on it. I have enough Linux machines already; can I do anything interesting with this one?
