Facebook's inflection point: Now everyone knows this greedy mass surveillance operation for what it is

Make 'em pay

Imagine, if you will, a new Android phone where location data was truly yours to control. By law it was firewalled off from the world on first boot. You could then choose who it went to, and those location services would have to compete for your data. Perhaps they'd give you rebates to go with them. There'd be an instant market for your data – and if they squirted it to a third party they'd lose you.

And now imagine something that paid you pennies for that funny photo, rather than you popping it online for free. There's no end to it. This kind of consumer choice is greedy Silicon Valley's real nightmare:....
The Onion is the authoritative source.
Worth it for the full headline.

If you don't make stuff, there is no stuff
