We Chose Monopoly

We Chose Monopoly

We chose to live in a world of monopolies:

When just one region of Amazon’s web services infrastructure goes down, everything from your online video streaming to your Roomba vacuum cleaner stops working.

When everyone chose Gmail for their email, we wonder where all the competitors in an otherwise free market went.

When developers focused their efforts on just two mobile operating systems, they wonder where all the other budding platforms went.

We chose this.

If we want different, we can choose that to.

But it does need to be a decision.
