Asking someone a question is completely different from looking the answer up. Humans are able to contextualise questions, highlight the important bits and add any info from personal experience, as well as tailor the answer to the the asker and their situation. This can't be done with static information. Saying "just google it/lmgtfy/google is free sweaty" is not a valid or clever answer.

Having access to near limitless information is not the same as being part of a network of knowledge.

@switchingsocial
It was just an example of how even in the face of #federation you can get people to gravitate towards one particular provider, given enough #marketing #money.

Take #slack for example, a glorified #irc server, or #whatsapp, #telegram and all the rest of garden-walled #xmpp implementations.

We need to do something different to break that cycle. I don't know what the solution is but it will be #social / #political, not #technical.

A centralised site can be sold to investors, a federated decentralised network can't.

Turns out the Koufu food court @ Sengkang Hospital also has a nyonya stall selling the blue flower rice! Now no need to go all the way to Downtown East for this 😋
