A reality where html never existed

“Is a world without html truly better?”

“I honestly don’t know if a world without HTML, HTTP, and its attendant ills (social media, centralization, adtech, the monetization of human attention) would truly be better. Perhaps the founders of Google would have built a better version of Archie (FTP search) and Veronica (Gopher search), we'd still have SEO, and the internet would still be the sort of cyberpunk dystopia too dull to be worth the efforts of William Gibson, George Alec Effinger, and Neal Stephenson to depict in fiction.”
