Adobe has cancelled everyone in Venezuela’s access to their apps and their risible Creative Cloud helpx.adobe.com/la/x-productkb Seems like almost every cloud and subscription service is really about owning your data and dependence.

@ben_hr finally people are starting to realise what the scary side of Software as a Service looks like...
Although I'll admit that I'm signed up to like 3 cloud storage providers and thoroughly ensconced within the Google cloud app ecosystem myself these days

@ben_hr my take-away from this is that contributing to and encouraging the use of open-source alternative projects should be a national IT priority for a lot more countries now

@ben_hr to be fair, Adobe doesn't have much of a choice here. They're operating under a Trump executive order, the USA governing by fiat like the dictatorship we've become.
