I don't have much to add to the discussion but wanted to voice my dissatisfaction with Gutenberg and how it disrupts my recently discovered IndieWeb power (Webmentions). I considered switching to Jekyll, Hugo or Grav but ran into challenges migrating over 15 years of content and several thousand posts.
Same. Manual until it hurts meant that the the process, time and effort of posing content often took longer than the creation of the content.
Hopefully this articulates a web where we control our content, publish it from our own site, decide who sees it and allows us to efficiently pull in other content. It allows us to control the context in which our content is viewed. We do not need to send all our content to some third party for the priviledge of sharing it. And the web may evolve into an infinitely more interesting, diverse, personalised and fulfilling place.
Donald McIntosh has beautiful dreams. I wish the future web was more evenly distributed.
