Read: It’s Time to Tax Big Tech’s Data

This article argues that the data that we create should be treated as a commons, and that we should tax the firms harvesting it. Especially at a time when the firms are making even bigger profits from it, and we are most likely going to endure more [[austerity]] measures as a result of the pandemic.

I agree with the redistribution of the wealth that big tech is hoovering up, but I'd say we should be working against the [[enclosure of the data commons]], not just letting it happen and then taxing it, no? Counter [[surveillance capitalism]] through [[open protocols]] and supporting the building of an [[open web]].
