...When will we start thinking long-term? When will we start encouraging platforms that are open (openness guarantees that we won't be abused again), standards compliant protocols, etc.?

I'd like to know when people will start thinking period? There must be something in the water, evidenced by what people seem willing to put up with nowadays from big corporations. I guess few raise their noses from their smart phone screens long enough to notice that the fox is making off with the chickens.
