I wish people would stop resorting to formulations like "own the data from what you do online" that sound simple but really aren't

if every network request were to pop up an animation of a note that says "Hello please send me XYZ resource" being folded into little envelope going from your computer, with all identifying information, to the remote server being queried -- maybe *then* people would start to get a sense of how what they perceive as wandering around a public space ends up creating such a paper trail

@maya and so much "hypocrisy" turns out to be nothing more than just the enemy failing to live up to their own ideals

also, hypocrisy is as big of a gotcha as it is because you don't have to engage with someone's moral arguments at all -- you can just find a contradiction and avoid having to sketch out your own position.
