The Social Dilemma is a great documentary. Will hopefully spread awareness about the issues with social media and surveillance capitalism.
Too bad that the official site has an illegal GDPR implementation with a dark pattern to accept Google tracking.
@markosaric I just saw it recommended on Netflix. Going to watch it based on your recommendation and ironic observation.
@jeremiahlee yeah, it's not bad. probably nothing new to you but useful i hope to get more non-techy people to be aware of the problems
Might be worth watching if interested in the subject:
So that's NetFlox, subZoom, and Goggle, that the crew of The Social Dilemma are promoting by using them. Reminds me of people taking short-haul flights to meetings about how much climate change carbon emissions are causing ;) I grok the idea of using a datafarming streaming service against itself, to reach its increasingly monopolized audience. But using community-hosted replacements for everything else would have made a more powerful statement.
@strypey @humanetech @markosaric @jeremiahlee The one spot that got me though was Shoshana Zubuff explaining the issue to be followed by Tristan Harris introducing and defining the term #SurveillanceCapitalism, a term she in fact coined. I mean, really? It takes the white male ex-Googler to define her signature contribution? That really rubbed me the wrong way.
@chris I said *the same thing* to my husband as we were watching it. 🙄
@jeremiahlee I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed it. Seems like the whole thing could have benefited from a better director
