“MPAA. The idea that piracy is an effective form of resistance, a direct attack on the corporate empire, is confirmed by the reaction it has provoked:”
Astra Taylor, The People's Platform: Taking Back Power and Culture in the Digital Age

“How valiant to deny the importance of money when it is had in abundance.”
Astra Taylor, The People's Platform: Taking Back Power and Culture in the Digital Age

“wealth and power are shifting to those who control the platforms on which all of us create, consume, and connect. The companies that provide these and related services are quickly becoming the Disneys of the digital world—monoliths hungry for quarterly profits, answerable to their shareholders not us, their users, and more influential, more ubiquitous, and more insinuated into the fabric of our everyday lives than Mickey Mouse ever was. As such they pose a whole new set of challenges to the health of our culture.”
