I'm horrified at what capitalism did with computers, turning people into facebook/youtube junkies for profit.

For me, computers have been truly liberating. Creating music was a sanctuary away from the confusing teenage world. They were also the only way I had to connect with other non-straight people.

And now, they are a way I can contribute to grassroots community building without getting overwhelmed.

My tool of liberation became a tool of domination 😢

@nicksellen It is absolutely frustrating to see that happen, but I'm glad you found computers to be a constructive and creative tool.

@nicksellen capitalism has that remarkable ability to turn everything it touches into poisonous shit

@nicksellen I still think the tools can cut the other way, too.
