"overpriced" is a misnomer as well, because people line up to pay said prices. the price is correct. even if you don't like or agree with it.
that actually has more to do with the Chinese suicide rate on a national level than the working conditions
@lunar well, you *do* have to opt out of the #corptech system, just like you opt to use #GOOG #APPL or #FB products. you make a choice. as an activist and developer it is my job to make the free alternatives useful and attractive so that users will have practical reasons to adopt tech that respects their freedom.
if you are a developer or marketing person, well the weight *is* on your shoulders because you have the skills to influence people use to better shit.
what are you thnking? etherpad at the very least good god woman
corporations aren't going to be nice about it and use a federated protocol. #GOOG tried it and found that they only bled users and subsidized competitors.
the only real solution to "i want to use one protocol/system to talk to all of my peeps" is free/open protocols run by non-corporate entities.
you can not like my proposed solution, but i'm not wrong.
