Watch this brilliant speech of Aral Balkan to members of the European Parliament about the EU’s approach to technology. Aral pleads for the EU to reject Silicon Valley VC-driven startup culture. He shows there is a different, better approach where the EU is uniquely positioned to lead. The approach of Small Tech rather than Big Tech and decentralized (federated or peer-to-peer) services.
It is best to watch the second video (which btw is hosted on the fediverse, on PeerTube).
