Tristan Harris is still one of the most clear-eyed thinkers in the whole "techlash." He's good at pulling together seemingly disparate phenomena and showing how they all stem from the incentives of the attention economy.
@nolan Thanks for stimulating the sharing a lot of interesting perspectives.
I want to agree with others that while Apple is being singled out by Mr.Harris as a potential good actor (given it's business model) this does not diminish the role of FLOSS to protect minds from algorithmic exploitation.
FLOSS is a community which benefits those who train/work in it as much as it creates products. The value of FLOSS as an institution promoting certain expertise and values should not be discounted. 🙏
