Platform Cooperativism, Surveillance Capitalism, Predictive Analysis and You

Given challenges to net neutrality, press freedom, and to our own freedom and privacy, the stakes we face in using the internet are enormous. Micky Metts of Boston’s Agaric Cooperative maintains The key to regaining security and control of the internet is switching to free software equivalents to proprietary/corporate software for communicating – among many uses. She argues that the moderate inconvenience of switching is worth the privacy of strong encryption and the freedom of a new world of user-controlled communications and organizing.
