Making the Web More Human

Creative Commons, Medium, Jul 05, 2017
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Ths article and the associated Creative Commons project address “the abstraction problem.” This problem describes the tendency of digital interaction to depersonalize communications. It's why it's easier for some to say things by email than in person. So Creative Commons is asking, "What can platforms do to make interactions within their communities more human?" So we read a bit from latform representatives talking about how their platform makes the web more human. Creative Commons would do better, I think, to talk to users rather than platform owners.
