"There is a mass of bodies without a name, hidden behind the screen, exposed to workplace surveillance, crowd fleecing, wage theft, and proprietary software. As the free-software activist Micky Metts cautioned: “When building platforms, you cannot build freedom on someone else’s slavery.""

@missperovaz@mstdn.io are you coming to lp?? ;D

Working in a public high school now is showing the harsh reality of the pervasive data collection in the public school system at large. Students seem to know there is something inherently "bad" about some aspects of their internet experience, but have no experience outside of it and largely feel stuck. It seems that this causes them to feel overwhelmed and with no control over their own experience.... So they give up, stop thinking about it and continue scrolling and streaming.... What to do??
