Wrest Of Us

It feels odd to be living in a time when you still, barely, have access to the last computers and browsers that work correctly, the last time one has control of the information experience to some degree.

People don’t even realize that this control is being wrested away, walled garden by walled garden and all the “for your own good” security prevarication and fear-mongering. In my lifetime, we’ve gone from machines that could do whatever we wanted them to do to machines that only do what Sundar Pichai, Satya Nadellq and Tim Cook allow them to do.

Such a terrible change, and fuck anyone that had anything to do with it, including all the people who tell me it’s no big deal.
