Welcome to the 81st episode of the Contrafabulists podcast, Kin Lane and Audrey Watters' irregular discussion of the tall tales told about technology.
In this episode, we discuss Jack Dorsey of Twitter's recent tweet about having regrets about helping centralize control over the Internet into the hands of corporations--with Audrey and Kin exploring why we find ourselves disillusioned with Internet technology today.
- the days of usenet, irc, the web...even email (w PGP)...were amazing. centralizing discovery and identity into corporations really damaged the internet. I realize I'm partially to blame, and regret it.
Feedback is welcome. (You should email Kin with it though, not Audrey.)
