RT @Filecoin: Smart take by @mollywood in @wired on cloud storage: “Given how critical the cloud has become for a huge swath of the tech economy, maybe we should ask ourselves whether this infrastructure should be in the hands of a few trillion-dollar companies” https://t.co/XhnLyrVp2O

I disagree. We have a strong competition between cloud providers (Azure, AWS, GCP and some of smaller players). There are plenty of products which help create cloud-neutral systems too, if one so desires. And unlike net neutrality, one can always chose which cloud provider to use -- there no consumers, for example, which are only served by AWS and not by GCP.
