In Latin, the expression is Cui Bono. Who benefits? If it’s you, if it’s us, then fashion is working for us. On the other hand, if it leads to negative outcomes, disappointment and disconnection, it’s worth asking if it’s something we want to keep doing, even (especially) if it feels right in the moment. Because everything we do feels right in the moment.

Part of the “what is the product” question for free services. Who is getting what, including the provider, from the transaction? Am I ok with that? Is it worth it?
Free is never actually free.
