A report from the AMP Advisory Committee Meeting

#1

The article is an interesting inside peek into Google’s thinking behind AMP and key stakeholders’ reactions.

As you are probably all aware, AMP is a privacy disaster that is basically a stripped-down version of a normal page, served directly from Google or another large search engine’s servers. Google gives a competitive advantage to results using AMP, so it is essentially forcing publishers to use it through it’s dominant market position.

Plenty of scope for tracking, centralisation and anti-competitive leverage here.
