And it is in that regard that I am linking to a Guardian column on the topic:
Former Google and Facebook executives are sounding the alarm about the pervasive power of tech. Will we listen?Of course 'we' won't. Once you've been bitten by the asshole bug, it is harder to disengage than it is to kick opiods. But that doesn't mean, with the arrival of a new year, that it can't be noted: There was a time when there were actual friends, actual enemies and a lifestyle that relied less on cardboard cutouts... you know -- sorta like grown-ups.
