    I'm not actually saying your shitty site should look like this. What I'm saying is that all the problems we have with websites are ones we create ourselves. Websites aren't broken by default, they are functional, high-performing, and accessible. You break them. You son-of-a-bitch.

    Uh, no. There are a lot more ways for things to go wrong than there are for things to go right. That alone disproves that websites are functional by default. In fact a 2008 study shows that 68% of private business IT projects fail.

    Besides, the majority of the complexity is in the systems integration and not in making sure that you're using a distro of jquery that's hosted on a CDN.

    I guess my main issue with this site is that it's saying that by default apps are highly performant and accessible by default. Im sorry but that takes a lot of effort, particularly, when you're dealing with a distributed app. The complaints this tantamount to building a skateboard and using that as an example of building a car. Its not even useful. It's just stupid.
