Silicon Valley Declares War
The solution would be standardized, federated and interoperable communication platforms of all sorts with governments that operate their own instances, where local laws apply.
Great, let's get it done!
Although I can not agree with it, as I can follow across instances without any hassles, I understand and sure agree, that the Fediverse in general needs improvement. This can and could be done with public resources, when real company independence is the goal and full time developer will be paid to improve it.
Have a nice day, mate ☺️
@fabsh very conflicted on this one, at what point do you draw the line between incitement to violence and free speech? what about the fact that the more regulation you throw at this problem, the harder it is for new players to enter the field, which only makes the companies stronger? either way, the solution is fedi, question is how to get that to happen. Maybe there could be laws forcing all social media companies to federate? (if only)
@jack Federated is not the solution. I learned that when identi.ca failed. It’s too complicated for the public.
@jack Not really. Depends on who builds the tools. Open source nerds seldom do it in a way that works for the public at large... At least as far as frontends is concerned.
