What a cracy world we are living in. The very popular software Notepad++ is banned in China. Let’s see how long that ban will be active. On the other hand I guess that there will be other similar software solutions available for China.
More and more countries are banning software.
And looking at the tiktok battle that is going on between the US and China, it’s getting more and more obvious that this is a fight for power.
I’m betting that the US is loosing that conflict in the long term. They cannot just block hardware like Huawei and software like tiktok. It’s getting clear that the US is getting behind and is no longer „first“ in these technologies.
But instead of putting plenty of money in the development of such technologies to stay competible, they are putting their money in the development of weapons.
Like the technical evolution turned from a hardware focus to a software focus, there will also be a shift from the physical weapon power to the power of economics.
