Everything is Amazing, But Nothing is Ours

This is a very thoughtful essay about how so much of our technology is access and not ownership. It’s sort of a mainframe model, where we’re using terminals to connect, but there’s nothing local for us.

Of course, I say us, but I try to own my technology. I’m not an ebook person. I use Netflix, but I buy DVDs of things I love. And while my CD collection is constantly shrinking, I at least buy MP3s (rather than streaming). So there are choices to be made in terms of what we actually own.
