The social dilemma is a documentary that's equally interesting as depressing. It's something I recommend everyone to watch if you have access to Netflix.

@hund no hard feelings against netflix in particular, but more against media streaming services in general. It teaches people quantity over quality. It promotes, that abundance is better than having only what you really need/like. It won't give you the ownership to what you bought. It won't promise you that you'll have it forever even if you won't stop paying... and my personal problem would also be how much time I would spend on it :)

@hund

no streaming/cloud service says that its like rental. they tell you the opposite. For example netflix says: You can watch as much as you want, whenever you want. People are mostly unaware. They are creating their own playlists and libraries on netflix or spotify, without ability to migrate, or any promise they will be allowed to use it in a week or month. Look at Adobe and how they migrated everybody to cloud and then completely blocked venezuela. even with no refund.

I started watching it last night, it basically confirms what we already know. I am not sure you can put the genie 🧞‍♂️ back in the bottle 🍾
