All it costs to fulfill the average person's needs for digital services is a $5 per month VPS instance. It's even cheaper if you buy a single board computer and host your services at home.

We've been letting companies steal our personal data and sell it to the highest bidder and destroying democracy in the process all to save what? A coffee a month?

This is one of the worst deals in history.

@njoseph you're assuming the masses have interest in learning anything about computers and give a shit about their data

@feld @njoseph this is the correct issue. Convenience of centralization beats the abstraction of privacy for most. Somehow you need to pass parity with centralized services and create a value they cannot match. Some exciting service or interaction.
