On YouTube stories

So I guess now that @YouTube got it. stories are now an official thing of the internet? Snapchat whatsapp. Facebook Instagram, YouTube, and it'll be a key social network feature from now on.

I have many thoughts about this and the ephemerality of online content and addressing of it. How the lack of it conveys an argument against urls and in the web app (pwa) vs app store battle.

Something that I'm learning now is that one interesting attribute of stories is that it's persistence can be decided after the content is made. Unlike standard web content that it's persistent by nature since it's very inception.
