It's Time To Stop Talking and Take Action Against the Beasts that Want to Control Us

 I know I have not been active on this BLOG the past year.  No reasons.  Anyway, I'm back at it.  This time, I have a specific focus on Big Tech.  The way I see it, the root of the problem is not the tech companies themselves, it starts with the software we use.  This includes Adobe, Intuit, Microsoft.  I call them AIM.  They are the worst offenders in there attempts to control the free world.  

Therefore, I am calling for a boycott of this three headed evil beast.  I call this movement, Boycott AIM.

Please join me in this movement to reclaim our individual freedom from these oligarchs who want to impose their wills upon the whole world.   They do not serve our interests, only theirs.

Plenty of Room at the Top

I have been in the tech industry for over 16 years.  Like anything else there is a lot of fiction, rumors, and misunderstandings to sort out from the truth. 

Right now as it stands, there are a few big tech giants that dominate IT field in regards to us users.  They are Google, Apple, and Microsoft.  In recent times, there has been a massive upsurge of angst against these 3 plus social media as well.  If you want to use a smartphone, you don't have much choice. 

So many users, content creators, and IT admins seem to believe they have no other choice.  I grew up near silicon valley.  What made start-ups like Apple possible was that there was no need to invent any new.  A few guys simple took all the hardware and put it all together into one single working unit called, the Apple 1.  The rest is history. 

Nowadays, history can repeat itself.  Except now, it is software.  All the pieces are out there, ready to be put in place.  What is needed is the vision, will power, and teamwork to make it happen.  The opportunity is now.

Age and Experience Bring Value

There is a myth out there in HR community that older workers loose their value as they age.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

A Big Quote

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. – J Robert Oppenheimer.

Moderate vs Radical (quote)

"I choose that word “radical” intentional.  Because only radicals change the world.  Everything great done in this world is done by passionate people.  Moderate people get moderately nothing done.  -  Rick Warren - Easter Sunday, 2005
