Definitely part of it. But I think it’s also the culture of these digital tools. Free to use for teachers. And they offer and promise a lot. But, ethically, this is incredibly problematic. Says the man currently tweeting on an iPhone! Feels like there was more open source before

Personally I like open source & I like paying for software (hopefully I pay for FOSS by using, bug reporting & sharing). I’ve no problem tweeting from an iPhone I paid for. More problematic ‬Is how I “pay for” twitter.

  1. Swings and roundabouts, eh! I made the decision to buy my iPhone based on the fact that I’d invested in it for over a decade. Yet I also know Apple has used juvenile labour in China to make parts for it. And yet I still have one. So am I morally lazy or a victim of the market?
