But it turns out that the executive order goes far beyond tractors and other agricultural equipment - it also applies to consumer electronics, including mobile phones, and this is a *huge fucking deal*.

Really, asking "what should replace Facebook" is putting things the wrong way around.

A more interesting way to ask the question is, "what did Facebook replace."

People used to build their own websites. People used to have blogs. People used USENET which was truly distributed and un-censorable.

Facebook and Google took the open internet and open standards and monetized and made everything crappy. Enough of that. Nothing should replace Facebook, it's done, stick a fork in it.

Indeed: from a great article about Wikipedia at 20:

"Wikipedia shouldnโ€™t really work, but it does. It shouldnโ€™t be able to survive in a hyper-capitalist commercial world, but people keep donating to it. Its model is unique and bizarre โ€“ a relic of a more open, idealistic 1990s techno utopianism, but it may still outlast even the biggest corporate tech giants."

"Why I still use RSS...I firmly believe the Internet, and what it stood for, peaked with RSS....Having only the content I want to see only be shown when I want to see it with the freedom to jump between readers as I please, all with no ads? For me, no other service comes close to the flexibility, robustness, and overall ease-of-use that RSS offers."
