@Gargron Same here ;)
@Gargron It was that way for me. The only winning move is not to play, and the tiger will not change its stripes, to put it succinctly.
@Gargron I think the information is something that a lot of people know already. It is more about the way it is presented and who is explaining it (sometimes the very devs who worked on the specific function that they are incriminating). It is worth a watch.
@diabeticus yeah, it’s how it was laid out that was nice. It was explained better than I could.
@Gargron watched it ...Scary and true...!
@Gargron we should encourage exposure to, and participation in, this conversation by as large a population as possible and if perceived or real expertise and glossy production helps do that, I'm all for it
@Gargron Mind you, it would give you the pleasure of hearing it louder and knowing that even more people heard it. I think you should read the interview with Tristan et. al. in the Guardian (2016?), watch The Social Dilemma and feel warm and thankful that you have seen this before everybody else. You will see other things too before the rest of us. Then you can spread the word and let us know 🙂
@gargron I saw it the other day and it was interesting to see some of the things I'd wondered about confirmed by people who played influential roles in the development of social media, but a bit heavy on the docu-drama.
@Gargron The single biggest failing in the Social Dilemma film is ending the film with a what you can do section that gave no credit or mention of you or any other fediverse developers.
@InternetKevin @Gargron This is a general issue. Political thinking goes for how FB should be regulated instead of avoiding it completely. Politicians have still no idea of alternative tech, and still most people have never seen a social network without the backing megacorp and its seduction casting, bubble blowing, fake news boosting engine.
@Gargron It doesn't present anything new to the discussion...at all.
But it is semi interesting the way they dramatise its effects on a family, and they interview some industry heavy hitters. It is good to hear things in their own words.
Worth watching but nothing too special.
@Gargron In deed!
