>“Note that I haven’t asked: “What’s the impact of technology on society?” That’s the wrong question. Platforms *are* societies of intertwined people and machines. There is no such thing as “online life” versus “real life.” We give massive ground if we pretend that these companies are simply having an “effect” or “impact” on some separate society.”
