    I personally agree with everything there. But I also ask myself, if that is the natural flow of tools in tech nowadays.

    Something shiny comes along - the cool people get on it - they tell everyone why it is so much better then the thing before - then more people get on it - now the thing needs to monetize, so it adds algorithms, ads, product placement, premium services, subscriptions, you name it - even more people get on it - the cool people leave it - they tell everyone why it is so horrible - the rest follows along - the once shiny thing gets acquired and you never hear from it again.
