Freedombox , Freedombone and The Age of Surveillance Capitalism
I look at the #Freedombox
projects with interest as I think these will be what the future #Internet
will be built on, if we want to move away from #SurveillanceCapitalism
. The book written by #ShoshanaZuboff
, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism
, is a brilliant snapshot of how bad things have got with today's Internet. We need to rebuild a decentralised web if we are to take back control of what was built for the people and not against the people.
Projects like Freedombox and Freedombone have noble intents but how widely are they deployed and at what point will mass deployment on these systems really start making a difference? Until things like #Federverse
hit the mainstream news, are we really going to see a massive shift in behaviors? Are we going to see a change in the way people use the Internet? What we really need is a #MeToo
movement that opens people's eyes against the abuses of the big five: #Google
was born within #Hollywood
, no wonder it got traction ... The new Internet will need its own Hollywood, won't it ...?
