How to account for free tech services in GDP?

I have a strong gut feel that there’s something really misguided about GDP.

I’d be tempted to replace it with domestic energy consumption (which correlates with GDP pretty well anyway, in the short term), and for all the social stuff, just ask everyone some variant of ‘How much better is this year than last year’.
