The digital "Now" forces us to reasses profoundly our technologies. Do we want networking infrastructure, online platforms, clouds, social communications and services developed by the large companies (GAFAM/BATX) or are we striving to net neutrality? Are we admitting to this commercial security state or can we have agency in our collected data and digital profiling? By running servers? And what are the geo-political, material-ecological, psychosocial effects of those virtual machines embbedded in data centers? Are they biased? Are they excluding us or are there any digital solidarity networks?
Consciously looking for care, prevention, knowledge, insight and critical ability to build resistance. That's healthier.
