Let's seize the means of computation

Seizing the means of computation – how popular movements can topple Big Tech monopolies via Transnational Institute.

This is an incredible and important interview with Cory Doctorow that's very relevant to us in the Fediverse. It's also long, so here is the summary of its many points:

"So, our project needs to be not to snuff out technology, but to figure out how to seize the means of computation, how to build a technological substrate that is responsive to people, that enables us to coordinate our will and our effort and our ethics to build a world that we want – including one with less carbon, and with less injustice, more labor rights and so on."
