Manton Reece is right. Matt Mullenweg wanting WordPress “to become the operating system for the open web” with “every website, whether it’s e-commerce or anything to be powered by WordPress” is basically the opposite of a web that “can go back to being more open”. No matter how much better a Mullenweg might be than a Dorsey or a Zuckerberg, the indieweb goal of “a diversity of approaches & implementations” is how we get to an open web that's open in actuality and not just rhetoric.
