My data is not yours to own.

You came here and asked to sell us things, then tracked us with the things you sold us.

You came here and begged for trust, which many gave you, then betrayed it by selling our secrets.

Then you took away our nation.

@TheGibson That resonates with me right now. Just spent the last few weeks extricating myself from the Google ecosystem, and it's hard. A surprising outgrowth of this was OTHER PEOPLE being annoyed that I've had the audacity to stop using Google products: "How am I supposed to share anything with you?" etc.

I dunno, choose tools that don't enforce arbitrary limits on my choices? :)

People end up thinking there's nothing outside the walled garden, that Google or Facebook *are* the Internet.

@faehnrich @TheGibson Oh totally! And it's SO frustrating! I have friends who won't respond to me unless I use their favorite thing - Failbook Messanger or GChat or whatever. So I've stopped trying to send text messages and just call them now :)

@feoh @thegibson

Oooh, actual phone calls, now they'll really never message you back.
