Lets look for a moment at a fundamental question few people are asking that already shapes society and will drive social change in the next 50 years.
The question of who has access to data and more importantly metadata.
* Open – everyone can use most of the data and all the meta data
* Closed- only you can use the data only corporations and governments can use most of the metadata.
* Hybrid- the data is open to the hosting corporation, governments and companies that pay for it. Your friends can see only what you share with them. The metadata is owned by the corporations used by governments.
The future will be dominated by this issue if computer networks keep running during the #climatechaos disaster.
