No one person, group, team, company, or co-op can meaningfully improve the sorry state of software if governments won't at least mandate the following:

- Interoperable communication
- Standardized data formats
- Self-serve data import/export

...and that's just scratching the surface.

@victoria
- Interoperable communication
Have you seen the European DMA? It is looking pretty hopeful.

- Standardized data formats
- Self-serve data import/export
The GDPR is supposed to mostly fix these, but sadly compliance has been an absolute joke :(

@SylvieLorxu Not overly familiar with EU policy, unfortunately. But without the proper teeth, regulations will be pretty meaningless. Like GDPR seems to have been.
