@yogthos Then... that did work.
@lorabe turns out people will gladly sacrifice both freedom and privacy for a bit of convenience
@yogthos if we all were perfect... but we are humans. Like the mosquitoes, looking for the shiniest light, we are all trapped in some centralized networks.
What can we do?
I suppose, humanize the problem. But it's a hard work that it will be, because the humanity had never face this kind of problem.
@orbifx @lorabe I agree that awareness is a problem, people often don't realize the implications of using such technology. Meanwhile, companies spent a lot of time branding themselves as trustworthy. Google coining "don't be evil" is a good example.
I suspect that even most people who understand the problem are just resigned to it.
I think we need more open alternatives to these services that work well enough for regular people to use.
