Re: Leaving Micro.blog with @AndySylvester:
Yep, I was a little confused by her point around ownership. Manton seems to completely support hosting elsewhere and syndicating to M.b. And unless one controls the physical server, one always has to trust the hosting provider (Dreamhost could easily cut off my access to my WP blog).
Belle’s comments about the API and Android support made more sense. And I’m glad she talked to Manton about his philosophy. Her criticism that we’re living in Manton’s house on the M.b. timeline is pretty much how he’s talked about M.b since before that was the name.
