DecentraCast S1Ep12 Be Careful What You Wish For
Today I talk about the hearing on Capitol Hill yesterday where Frances Haugen, a former Facebook data scientist turned whistleblower, testified what we all knew already. Facebook is an evil corporation that prioritized corp profits over the health and well being of it's users.
Which, by the way, she did fail to mention that it's users are products. But that is a whole different episode.
Todays episode was inspired by all the comments on I saw on Twitter yesterday about the evils of Facebook. And I agree with most of them. But the ones that were and are still relishing in the demise of Facebook and other social media arent getting the broader picture.
This is a power grab and nothing more than fuel for their fire to take control of social media. If they cant do that they will destroy it by regulating it out.
To those nay sayers that say they cant touch Hive I say you are correct. They cant and wont be able to break the technology of Hive. But they can and will go after the front ends. The dapps themselves will be in danger. This is where desktop and mobile apps such as Ecency. Aureal and the 3Speak app thats in development will become the most important pieces of the Hive ecosystem.
I do hope that the devs have some form of "escape route" where Hive can run "offline" whether through SMS or something similar.
Freedom of Speech is what at stake here. And the Facebook whistle blower is just another useful pawn in the game.
If you would like to support me outside of Hive
These two lists are what I need to build a streaming pc. The main parts are available on Amazon while there are 3 items that are cheaper at Newegg. The total build is currently coming in at ;$912 as of 10/01/21.
I dont expect anybody to help me with this but if you can it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you if you can.
