Our restraint is mind boggling.
A Digital - Fahrenheit 451 , book by Ray Bradbury.
I want to swing that Sherman Antitrust Act big dick right into their Big Tech faces. Tech companies need to be taught their place.
Not hard to see how sectors of corporations, especially transnational ones like Alphabet, are starting to think their corporate personhood supersedes the nation-state. I would rather slip back on my ECH, put the BDU's back on and go to war again against corporate statehood. And that is what they want, corporate nation-states that rival and surpass actual nation-states.
youtube just changed its monetization to exclude small content creators - that's gotta save a bundle for them.
Nice of them to kick us out of the digital ghettos and force us into irl groups and activities.
What will we do to communicate when we are essentially " blacked out"? If YouTube and Twitter are censoring people and reddit is censoring us from the front page where else can we go to congregate on line. I mean, worst case we have freedom to assemble in public but we are being choked by conventional media.
Cryptocurrencies are still developing but will someday be able to decentralized these platforms so no one owns or controls them. It's going to be amazing.
Are there any conservative hackers who can, I don't know, strike back?
Just spoke with a friend who knows someone that works there. They have been cutting staff and heaping four jobs worth on one person. The insider says it's not looking good from a business management perspective. Spez: fat thumbs
I work in tech, and the people at the ground level are pretty conservative. The other point I'd like to make is that companies are noticing the swing towards conservative values, and some are accepting, or not censoring, some are refusing to acknowledge it, and dying. Look at duckduckgo. 6 years ago competing against google would have been suicide if you didnt already have a brand/site. Now, its doing well, and growing.
Ideas do not die in the darkness, they only get stronger.
Most of these technology companies aren’t making a profit and only stay afloat because it’s easy to borrow cash cheaply. When the interest rates go north of 3% their bs will stop... along with their businesses. Twitter, Buzzfeed and all the other internet cancers will drown in their debt.
TIL that Lebron James rejected a $10 million offer from Reebok when he was just 18. When asked why, he said that Nike or Adidas might offer him a bit more. Less than a year later, he accepted a $90 million offer from Nike.
TIL former NFL player James Brooks was found to be illiterate when he was unable to read court documents after admitting to not paying over $100k in child support. When the judge asked how he graduated from Auburn without being able to read, he said, "Didn't have to go to to class."
