We had a little WTF discussion about this on the last WP-Tonic Roundtable. AMP seems antithetical to the concept of an open web and theoretically to the open-source principles on which WordPress is based. And I've seen articles posted here and elsewhere about how AMP has not turned out to be a good thing for most publishers. So why exactly IS Automattic getting behind it?
