    1. Who's responsible for these changes? David and I are. Who made the changes? David and I did.

      Compounded with some of the above, this sounds like Jason Fried is saying 'We're fed up with what groups tell us. If you're against this, speak up as an individual.'

      I hope that Basecamp and Hey's HR departments are still open to listening to groups of people.

    2. People can take the conversations with willing co-workers to Signal, Whatsapp, or even a personal Basecamp account, but it can't happen where the work happens anymore.

      Do note that two of the three systems that Fried use for examples are private. In other words, only people who you explicitly want to see what you're writing will see just that.

      Most of what is done by and in a capitalist company is supported by a certain rationale: to make as much money as possible for your shareholders.

      If you care about making money, you speak out against injustices; These injustices could be logical, moral, ethical, or a mixture.

      The phrase 'It's become too much' is a bit vague from Fried, who has written books that advocate speaking out, e.g. 'It Doesn't Have To Be Crazy At Work'.
