“Look at what cool things I can code!”
”Look at how much money I can make!”
”Look at how much power I have!”
Thus Facebook and Twitter, designed to allow people to communicate, use their cool, power and money to disallow disfavored communication. Thus Google, designed to supply users important and popular search results, supplies instead government-approved or Google-approved search results.
The dream of a free and open Internet was wonderful, but is now over. Henceforth the Internet will be tightly controlled by tyrannical governments in the EU and PRC. In freer countries, subtle government influence and corporate power will occult anti- and non-establishment opinion.
Burn it all down.
