5 years ago: Digital Feudalism and How to Avoid It
The one thing I’d change is to replace “open source” with “ethical technology” and “free (as in freedom)” in my words.
@StuC @aral @Purism @gnome I'm fairly sure the G Suite set don't do anything too nasty with the data compared with the free consumer stuff; the problem competing is cost & integration. Cost per user is tiny and no one has to worry about their data centre dieing or maintaing hardware or software or security installations. The integration stuff is also tough - you get the mail, live document editing, chat, calendar etc all in one - all works as one; and once you have the mail the rest is free.
