Social learning can help us counter the negative effects of platform capitalism. Collectively we are smarter than any corporation. Learning through communities of practice and knowledge networks enables us to make collective sense.

Harold, I am not disagreeing with the power of PLN, my question though is how this really pushes back on platform capitalism when it is very much ingrained within platform capitalism? I am reminded of Althusser’s statement that we are always already interpolated. Sometimes I wonder if blog comments exist outside of all this, but is WP.com / Automattic any different to other platforms? Lately, I have tried to own my presence by posting everything from my own site. However, I am still sceptical of the maturity of this as a means of pushing back.
