Hey, so my husband got his lay-off notice today. He was the brewer at Mendocino Brewing Company.
Do any of you socialists know how to put together a worker's coop? Because it is absolutely ridiculous that the brewery is standing on one side of a locked door, and everyone who knows how to brew and bottle beer is on the other.
But I don't share the author's notion that this could be reliably changed. We need to come back to #decentralized tools. They are what made Internet succesful and they would protect us. On so many levels.

Couldn't be here, but I think that some folks will be presenting our last 3 years works with:
* https://ungooglize.org (32 alternative services to Google and co)
* https://chatons.org (a collective of 50 organizations providing ethical alternative services to GAFAM)
* https://framatube.org/#en (alternative to youtube based on peertube)
But we will be at FOSDEM to present all this projects (that will be translated at this time).

Oh man, I love it when EFF gets philosophical: "DRM gets made over the course of years, by skilled engineers, at a cost of millions of dollars. It gets broken in days, by teenagers, with hobbyist equipment. That's not because the DRM-makers are stupid, it's because they're doing something stupid.”
(Also this is a terrifyingly good article: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2017/10/drms-dead-canary-how-we-just-lost-web-what-we-learned-it-and-what-we-need-do-next)

UBI is a corrective measure for (redistribution of wealth) for a problem that shouldn't exist in the first place (horrendous inequality). Saying this , I would still support UBI for the time being.
