  1. Currently:

    - I help where I can with a self-hosting platform for web apps (Sandstorm.io).
    - Warn people about the dangers of centralized platforms and participate in decentralized ones.

  2. It's weird to think people use social networks as primary content hubs. I've always treated them like the roads which gets people to my content rather than the building my content is in.

    I guess people don't feel the need to own things anymore. People do seem happy with the Netflix model rather than Blu-rays, so I guess I just never considered how low other people's priority is to have control over their content.

    p.s. I just skimmed the article, my apologies if I misconstrued.

  3. Just a generation ago there was understanding that we had let too much power accumulate into too few large, multi-national corporations.

    Then we got a chance to start over with the internet and new digital companies. How quickly we repeated the same mistakes. Now we have trillion dollar tech companies and wonder if they've gotten too big, too centralized.

    I look forward to a write-up on your decision to move your photos from Flickr to self-hosted-- another vote for the open web!
