On “independent creators”, who is part of “our community”, who isn’t. Makes me want an at least partly explicit socialist / social democratic tech conference. Although it’d probably be unbearable.

@tomcoates I’m not denying there are differences. Only that if I don’t *consciously* notice differences they don’t worry me.
I know this stuff makes building complex sites more manageable, but if I’d wanted to spend my time doing it I’d’ve gone to sysadmin school.
@tomcoates It’s like developing refined tastes in coffee, wine, etc… the rest of us don’t notice such tiny differences.Blissful ignorance :)

@abe1x Yes, the discovery is awful on Spotify. But that’s slightly separate from Morley et al making themselves findable.
