Fascinating perspective @fergish indeed SAFE Network requires that we make a good choice to use applications that agree with us. It’ll be a deliberate choice to use an application that harvests your information versus an application that is agnostic to your usage decisions.
It seems to me that software such as microsoft’s windows operating system has occurred because of social proof and reinforcement. And I hope that we in terms of a community strive to educate against using closed source and damaging software such as windows… for instance Ubuntu is just as useful and could be preserving of your liberties, and your wallet too…
Then we can see SAFE Network offers us a choice of which applications to utilize. Even if facebook hooked into SAFE, still there is no point to utilize it unless you really want to be harvested.
The choice is yours right? To choose a client that let’s you interface with others’ clients. OR choose an application that interfaces with someone’s personal server and all of your activities are pledged to that person’s server.
Not to be confused when subscribing to a particular client software that let’s you choose who to interact with. So things become on your terms not the Server’s user agreement.
There’s more that can be said about this, I’m sure other themes as well. Yet with regard to software, I think it is critical to take in this revelation and grasp its importance.
