I came across a recent op-ed by Prof. Mariana Mazzucato on “Digital Feudalism” at
https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/platform-economy-digital-feudalism-by-mariana-mazzucato-2019-10?utm_source=Project+Syndicate+Newsletter&utm_campaign=d192f2bc47-sunday_newsletter_6_10_2019&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_73bad5b7d8-d192f2bc47-105013549&mc_cid=d192f2bc47&mc_eid=a8cee90b20 Prof. Mazzucato is a leading researcher and thinker on Technology and Innovation, advisor to the European Commission on research and innovation strategy, and author of two important books on the subject “The Value of Everything” and “The Entrepreneurial State”. The report on “Mission-oriented Research and Innovation in the European Union” might be of interest https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info/files/mazzucato_report_2018.pdf Since the use of cloud platforms for GIS data analysis is having a huge impact on the GIS community, the subject is of relevance. I would like learn more on this 1. Are there any examples of Digital Feudalism in GIS? 2. How will Digital Feudalism in GIS affect our future generations? 3. What policies are governments, regulators doing to reduce Digital Feudalism in GIS? 4. What policies and curriculum are universities, educators adopting to reduce Digital Feudalism in GIS?
