Folks, for years: We have a problem called Surveillance Capitalism, it’s a systemic problem arising from socio-economic factors…
Ex-Googler: Hmm, this problem, very exotic… what shall I call it without criticising either surveillance or capitalism? Time well spent?
Folks: SURVEILLANCE CAPITALISM! It’s the feedback loop between accumulation of information (surveillance) and accumulation of wealth (capitalism)
Ex-Googler: …human downgrading?
@aral the biggest enabler for surveillance is centralisation IMHO. TCP/IP was and is anarchistic and decentralised by design. But we added centralisation in two ways. DNS and IANA. We need decentralised solutions for both. My working title - TCP/ID.
@aral I do have a logo :)
