Surveill your lover. WTF 

@humanetech was in a chat room the other day where a teenager was asking what alternative smartphone roms could allow GPS tracking because they didn't want to run android but their parents wouldn't let them have a smartphone unless said parents could use it to track them. control freakery to an abusive degree masquerading as love.

anyone who cares about tech should be aware of the Framework laptop that's coming out. it's modular, lightweight, this, and good looking.

I think these are good ideas because they give power to the original source: the sellers, producers, artists. but it also allows them to not have to build their own website, an especially good point for smaller accounts. there could also be some creative uses of accounts: maybe one profile on the federated shopping site could follow brands that produce ethical goods. one could follow brands that supports the yellow economic circle. etc etc. AND it allow you to more easily support local things

the only issue here is with abusive clients. since federation allows for different clients (apps) to be used to access the information, an abusive app could download the movies /music/etc illegally for sharing or even profit. this can be mitigated by sellers/artists/producers only allowing certain apps, or perhaps blacklisting certain apps instead (in order to allow the user to have more choice). this issue could probably also be solved in other ways, this is just one idea.

federated movies: one could subscribe to different streaming sites with the same account. otherwise this is pretty similar to federated music.
