The power struggle

The power struggle shows up in very small scale challenges, like

forcing you to use templates, projectors, printers and so on

More seriously to use powerpoint, you need a laptop or table, the right sort of cable, an electricity, which is in short or unreliable supply in many parts of the world.

noise, cost

All of this illustrates that the real problem is to do with asymmetric power, hence the power struggle really concerns the fact that the rich get richer, the poor don't.

Power struggle:

amazon, baidu, chrome, didi, electricity, facebook, google
hsbc, instagram, javascript, kdd, lambda, maps, mooc,
oed, pinterest, queen, r, s, twitter, uber whatsapp/wechat,
xkcd, youtube, zoom
