Everything is broken, but yes we can mend it!

A worth read from medium, “Everything Is Broken”

This text just corroborates that we need to get our act together and set up a set of universal procedures to stimulate people to want better digital products, safer and easier ways to use them, lower barriers to update procedures, better understanding of implications of use of digital programmable connected products.

If you do not want spoilers go and read it, here I’ll give away the conclusion

“Computers don’t serve the needs of both privacy and coordination not because it’s somehow mathematically impossible. There are plenty of schemes that could federate or safely encrypt our data, plenty of ways we could regain privacy and make our computers work better by default. It isn’t happening now because we haven’t demanded that it should, not because no one is clever enough to make that happen.So yes, the geeks and the executives and the agents and the military have fucked the world. But in the end, it’s the job of the people, working together, to unfuck it.”
