governance of and by platforms

“Platforms rose up out of the exquisite chaos of the web. They were inspired by the freedom it promised, but they also had distinct and more guarded uses in mind. But as these platforms grew, the chaos they intended to escape found its way onto them, with the same motivation: if I want to say something, be it noble or reprehensible, I want to say it where everyone will hear me. These platforms put people in close proximity – and though the benefits of this may be obvious and sometimes utopian, the negatives are becoming painfully apparent as well.”
