PDF 2016 - How we lost the open web

I spent the last couple of days attending Personal Democracy Forum 2016, described on their landing site as: The world’s leading conference exploring and analyzing technology's impact on politics, government, and society. That's the reason why I haven't posted my latest Emacs video. PDF is a great conference and raised a huge number of important issues. I'll probably blog about a few over the next few weeks. One topic that I've already lamented about has been the way we as a society are allowing so much information to be silo-ed in platforms like Facebook.
