From childhood on, we are trained to believe there is a right way of doing things – and that we better learn it, or else. In school, in university, and later in the form of job descriptions – we are always told what to do. If we don’t know what to do, it must mean […]

Even if you’re paying for the product, you’re still the product – By Cory Doctorow
