Legend (s) of the Ancient Web

“It is a scary world we’re building. And building it this way is a choice, not a necessity. We can’t un-invent the Internet, but we can decide that the right way to fund it is not by building a Panopticon.” “The Utopian qualities that made us love the web have not disappeared, even as it’s become centralized and corporate, and we can find ways to defend and express them in our work. The important thing is to recognize that there is a fight, and a need for individual acts of creative resilience. We have to make sure that the powerful don’t get comfortable using our tools. And we have to find ways to dismantle the surveillance economy before it becomes a poltical weapon turned against our democracy. ”
