Readers will recall I deleted Facebook a year and a half ago, citing just the sort of newsfeed manipulation we've now all come to see as harmful. If I had been able to do something about it at the time, I would have. I have spent my time since focusing on working with and developing distributed personal learning and information networks. There's no money in this. If you are required to find paying clients, you'll hear nothing but crickets (or the many voices telling you to centralize and consolidate and do analytics). The people working on Diaspora, the people working on Mastodon, the people working on SoLID - these people, and others like them, are the people who should be supported.
