AMP Gmail Woes

**EDIT** I migrated to fastmail. Going forward you can contact me at:

kevin@ the dot com you’re currently on

Will be updating the mailto on as well.


I’m so disturbed by the announcement of AMP in Gmail. My email address is something I’ve had for ages. I hate the idea of having to migrate off of it, but being complacent doesn’t feel like an option.

Email is something that is so critical. Any security issues, reliability issues, or data consistency issues are unacceptable to me when it comes to email. It looks like or are my two best bets. Which do I trust, my own incompetent self or yet another third party? Can my VPS support another thing like this? Will setting up mailinabox throw my current and setup into chaos?

I don’t want to have to deal with this. It was my own damn fault for ever thinking these services were “free” in the first place and being lazy enough over the last decade to come to rely on them. This is just awful for the world.
