You don’t need to have iCloud, Google Drive or Dropbox. You can run your own. There is no need to get all that fancy, when you can run your own cloud infrastructure. You can be free, and avoid getting stuck in the corporate infrastructure. Technology is that powerful, that you don’t have to rely on the bad actors for your data. It is fully possible to reclaim your privacy back.
Think open source, and build your own self hosted solutions. This is the future.
