Since 2010

The website obesity crisis

Maciej Cegłowski:

The way to keep giant companies from sterilizing the Internet is to make their sites irrelevant. If all the cool stuff happens elsewhere, people will follow.

On the other main point of this talk - page weight - zerosleeps isn’t too bad, but it does include jQuery and a lightbox plugin, and I’m also using Google Fonts. Posts which pre-date October 2015 and have images are unneccesarily heavy because those pages only contain one decent-sized image; posts since then have a much smaller thumbnail which links to larger images (hence jQuery + plugin).
