Christian Fuchs interviewed by WSJ about how Tech Giants Have Hijacked the Web
The Wall Street Journal interviewed Christian Fuchs this week about combating online monopolies. The article focuses on the way in which some innovators are developing new internet platforms to prevent monopolies from forming in the future. Fuchs states that “The internet is [already] a corporate monopoly today.” This he suggests is “a danger to democracy.”
Instead, Fuchs says that “we need a web of the people, not a web of the corporations.” And while he is quick to state there are worries about the current web, he is optimistic about the odds of improving it: “There’s now more public awareness, and that’s the foundation of changing things.”
