Historian of Science, Joanna Radin's take on the Zuckerberg testimony:

"""
Facebook users have been horrified to find out that they have been cast as pathfinders for Cambridge Analytica and other companies that reuse their data without their knowledge. This formula, however unsavory it may seem, is not new. On the contrary, it’s what happens when the mantra “information wants to be free” leads common resources to be claimed for capitalism.

social.coop

social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
