Here's one to think on: With the $billions that Meta spent on XR they could have created rigs that are fully open and trustworthy, from the chip designs all the way up through the optics and then to the browser. They're one of the major reasons that WebXR exists and they ship the most capable and standards-based immersive browser. Parts of their org fully understand how to work on open tech.
@trevorflowers but what would be it's economic model then ? (these are corporations, which have only one real goal : gain money/market share/control, not giving away services or tools)
@Olm_e Right now they're investing in a type of closed platform that at least four other hypercorps are in a better position to dominate. Meanwhile, they're the target of ~every large government because of surveillance. They were smart and kept a plan B with their standards-centered browser but they don't yet believe that it's their new plan A along with hardware that people could actually trust.
Wider Web is a Mastodon instance for people who Trevor Flowers knows and are of the open web and/or XR persuasion.
