I applaud the creation of , and its attempts to pressure AlphaGoogle into more ethical, equitable practices. Big megacorps need as much pressuring into good behavior as possible.

It makes me wonder if it would be possible to move the needle coming from another direction - creating a non-profit shareholder's association which buys up voting stock. Could put all those Big Tech salaries to use by more directly influenciing policy.

I'm not sure exactly what that would get you if you did succeed besides a seat at the board. And what does that get you? I'm not sure how much control the board exercises.

Still, I think it's worth considering.
