@nolan @twee My kid sister is 16 and she's not even resigned, she just doesn't even consider that photos could go someplace beside instagram, the "self-evident" solution.

@nolan as a gen-z, whenever I bring up privacy or open web with anyone, i always get responses along the lines of "but how else would it work?" or "but everyone sells my data, what can i do?"

it's difficult, when it's convenient and ubiquitous, and the canonical exampse to cite (email) is also siloed by the company i speak against

I think this also comes up when trying to explain Mastodon or the fediverse to a wider audience. They just have no frame of reference for this kind of stuff. "Where's the app in the App Store?" "Why do I have to choose an instance?" "What the heck's an instance?"

It's just expected that Mastodon is a startup in California somewhere, and it's got millions of dollars of VC money and bus ads saying "get it on the App Store, get it on Google Play." How could things possibly be anyway else?

I finaly got up to date on the Flash series on netflix. It was painful. More than 2 seasons I was missing. Yeah it's bad and weird. And it keeps getting weirder. So frustrating the series is. And I'm not even trying to see Arrow or any others anymore, I've quited those.
