the Pixel 3 review from Buzzfeed that I shared from @rixx really is a pretty apt read and a good tech review, it ends with:
"This is a great phone. I highly recommend it. But it's no longer totally clear to me that the information systems we've built to help us navigate life are net beneficial to society. I mean, I think they are. But, Jesus. Jesus. What's happening to us?"
And that pretty much sums it all up, doesn't it?

Tout. Va. Bien. 😱
I think governments should run a publicly owned non-profit email service. It’s weird that you need an email address to do all sorts of governmental things like pay your taxes and so on, but the only providers are foreign commercial companies and they usually run on a business model of data-mining and advertising. And email is used for all sorts of important authentication. Why are we not worried about this?
Also, it’s interesting to think that the robots in The Matrix are way nicer to us than we humans are to our underlings. Why bother making a VR paradise for us when they could just cram us into cages and force us to stay alive in a living hell like we do to chickens in battery farming. #vegan
Film idea: The Matrix but instead of harvesting humans for energy our robot overlords confine us in pods so they can force us to look at adverts 24/7. They have long forgotten why they wanted us to see ads but it is such an ingrained part of their tradition and culture that they don’t want to change it.
