5 years ago: Digital Feudalism and How to Avoid It
The one thing I’d change is to replace “open source” with “ethical technology” and “free (as in freedom)” in my words.
@aral Great talk. What do you make of services which aren't open source, but state clear alignment with privacy -- subscription instead of ads, no data mining (or even end-to-end encryption), easy data export?
@aral @james Perhaps the best approach is to maintain the expectation that one will switch services from time to time depending on which are taking preferred principles seriously, and promote that attitude as a deliberate alternative yo choosing a walled garden and staying there no matter how weedy it gets.
