A report from the AMP Advisory Committee Meeting

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.
