The Slow Knife

‘Link in bio’ is a Slow Knife

“With billions of people using the major social platforms, and the people who remember a pre-social-media web increasing in age while decreasing as cultural force on the internet, we’re rapidly losing fluency in what the internet could look like. We’ve almost forgotten that links are powerful, and that restraining links through artificial scarcity is an absurdly coercive behavior.”

A short, incisive piece by Anil Dash calling out a pernicious practice that is destroying the web.
