form tag considered harmful

 Paul Ford asks The ‘Form’ Element Created the Modern Web. Was It a Big Mistake?

As anyone who has investigated the Windows control panels can tell you, there’s a lot of decades-old code in our systems. If people evolved like technology, you’d be 6,000 lizards, 30 chimps, and a couple Neanderthals all glued together with an anguished human face stretched across it as a “visual refresh.”

Hot take and interesting to ponder, but... well, the web as a "read-only-medium". Like that's half of what separated it  from gopher and ftp back in the day- one part was embedded links, but the other part was that potential for interaction...
