We’re Bullish on AMP
Paul Ford

I’m all for AMP if it remains for what it was originally created for — a short term stop gap to make the web faster.

We should just be building faster websites and paying attention to performance in the first place… then a solution like AMP would not be required. It would be great if it were like jQuery who’s ultimate aim was to no longer be required.

While I have no basis for this at all I can’t help but feel that AMP falls on the second of the two Googles where the benefits for the web are being used as a front for an evil conspiracy. I’m sure they’re not, I even love how quick the content is to access, but I can’t help but shake that “this isn’t right” feeling.
