Thus social media will drop in value to the same level as scribbling on toilet doors

Toilet door musings are more interesting that Facebook/Instagram.

As much as I retain a nostalgia in national achievement and pride (see Olympics) I see that the "keep it in the family" national pride over home grown businesses and innovation have long since bolted. Why would ARM be any different? Its market is not loyal to or dependent on the brain power that created it being from one particular geographic area and is increasingly likely to be sourced from anywhere that can muster the talent. Retaining the right talent to maintain and grow a business is key, irrespective of whether that talent resides in one particular geographic area or not. What's really more important is equal opportunity in education and training for youngsters in the UK to be in a position to contribute to such a business. Unfortunately I don't think this is the case any longer as the hard engineering and scientific subjects are no longer championed by schools and universities.

People are switching off. Facebook is a dead platform with no one generating real content, hence the move to emotional vitriol.

Do you have an URL for Emotional Vitrol?  I actively dislike Facebook - so this alternative must be a significant improvement.

You can join via the Br*xit, C*vid, or Tr*mp threads here 😁

I reserve the right to name my indie band that though
