Big Tech is the malady. Decentralization is the antidote.
Decentralize, and the advertizing model breaks down. Celebrities turn into mere jerks with over-inflated opinions of themselves. Facebook can only profit if it has billions of users locked in to its walled garden. Without centralization, existential threats become paper tigers.
Hi Fediverse 👋

- We added Cryptpad to the Doodle list as it has a poll feature 🗒️
- Our DRM article has images now 🙃
- We have an Audible list in the pipeline 🎧
Thanks to @uniq for the nudge to write this! 😊👍
