things that are bad about many 5G rollouts:

- because range is short, it requires use of a LOT of land, some by eminent domain (womp womp)
- that spectrum could be WAY better used for other stuff
- it's a totally pointless technology

"So many of us have spent significant time and social capital moving our friends and family away from the exploitative data siphon platforms that Facebook et al offer, and on to Signal in the hopes of breaking the cycle of commercial exploitation of our online relationships."

Yes, yes we have...

De Correspondent goes #dataviz with this brilliant article about #bigtech.

"The discussion about Big Tech is often about privacy, surveillance, disinformation and abuse of power. These are legitimate concerns. But this ignores the fact that Big Tech creates a new infrastructure that society cannot do without."
