MAGMA Monopolies

by Ploum on 2022-09-20

I had a nice tea with Sébastien Wilmet today, discussing GNOME programming, automatic spell checking and abusive monopolies. I also demoed Offpunk, of course.

He told me about how the hypercapitalist monopolies are like a layer of magma destroying everything and transforming everything they touch into more magma.

Where magma stands for : Meta-Apple-Google-Microsoft-Amazon.

Don’t talk about GAFAM anymore, talk about MAGMA.

PS : My apologies to the great French rock/jazz band with the same name. Magma is a great band who sings in its own language.
