The advent of social media and networks has transformed a part of civic institutions and associative life, the fabric of society, into means of production, to be owned, mined and controlled, in a centralized fashion.

The social fabric has been digitalized into a web, trapping its users.

The amount of social interactions happening now through the medium of privately owned tools, whose incentives do not align with their users, is disquieting.

I therefore join Scott Galloway, Ben Thompson (and many others) in their fears.

You'll only receive email when they publish something new.
