@thufie Even ignoring the lobbying, the current proprietary model of hardware and software development creates complete garbage. Nothing interoperates with anything else, even the company's own products from a couple years previous if not less, so you end up with planned obsolescence. Because there's no common base on which to build IoT software everyone writes their own and naturally it's full of security holes. Everything that's wrong with technology comes from this model.
@freakazoid yeah I wish there was fanfiction of scifi classics the same way we have fanfics for video games/shows/movies.
@thufie BTW, if you've never read The Time Ships, which Wells's family has blessed as the official sequel, it's excellent.
