I can understand journalists not having the ability to effect change in a publication’s dodgy practices and funding model.
But this article is written by “The Editorial Board.”
@loke @better I think a few factors add up to that many, like different features on offer from different trackers, adding new trackers with duplicate functionality without bothering to remove older trackers, people from different departments wanting their own chosen trackers, and a lack of oversight/consideration for the combined impact.
@laura not a big difference
There’s a fire wall between business and editorial
That’s why you will see papers openly critique owners
@laura this podcast with Paul Ford is really illuminating on these issues
