Tech Newsletter 02/09: "Decentralizing everything never seems to work"

This newsletter is proudly sponsored by Indeed Prime.

What to do once you admit that decentralizing everything never seems to work

Decentralization is the new disruption.
Meanwhile, Internet progenitors like Vint Cerf, Brewster Kahle, and Tim Berners-Lee are trying to re-decentralize the Web.

They respond to the rise of surveillance-based platform monopolies by simply redoubling their efforts to develop new and better decentralizing technologies.

They seem not to notice the pattern: decentralized technology alone does not guarantee decentralized outcomes.

When centralization arises elsewhere in an apparently decentralized system, it comes as a surprise or simply goes ignored.
