Back in the MySpace hey-day I liked Facebook more than MySpace for its clean and consistent design. But looking back with 20/20 hindsight I can’t help but think I was remiss. MySpace was quite a special site in a special period of the web. People that maybe wouldn’t ordinarily care about html or css were learning how to code them so they could customize their sites. Anything was possible.
A lot of whimsy has been removed from the web as people locking themselves into the big social networks. Maybe a site like MySpace/micro.blog is a happy medium between the wild-west/running your own server and total platform lock in.
