    I agree that the uncritical nature of the story does not address the potential impact. I’d want an exploration of which aspects of an email could change with this technology after the email is sent. Currently, the content of links is malleable, although not the link itself. If the text portion would remain inviolate I’m less bothered.

      Just a technical note: the AMP for email technology allows for the entire content of the email to be updated dynamically.

      Hi James,

      This story is what we call a “newsstub,” meaning its the barebones of the story. We need you, as someone part of the wiki-community, to add onto this story.

      I will look into a step-by-step analysis into how emails will change under this model.

      But I encourage you to add onto this story as you see fit!

    Here is a interesting counterpoint : https://techcrunch.com/2018/02/13/amp-for-email-is-a-terrible-idea/.

    This counterpoint and the original announcement was also widely discussed in Hacker News comments https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=16372234 .This doesn’t constitute a reliable source but can help linking to more resource about AMP controversial take on web standards.

      Agreed — I believe the negative aspect of Google using it’s power as a major email service provider to push a new (de facto) Google-proprietary standard should also be highlighted.

      (In my opinion, the piece currently sounds too much like a re-wording of a PR statement)

        Hi Joel,

        Just to reiterate what I told James. This story is a “newsstub,” just the introduction of a larger story. We need WT users like yourself to give these stubs life and direction.

        I will look into the links that Martin provided. But next time you see something missing from a story, you should contribute! Even if it’s only a couple of lines of context.
