What point democracy when you don't have freedom of expression.
The internet, for better or for worse, makes us aware of every terrible opinion everybody in the world has on every conceivable subject. It’s a disaster.
You can just immediately vomit up whatever you want online

Oh my. It was indeed different.

I started out with a 300 baud modem and The Well. There was no Google or even AOL back then.

I think Q Link was the first, followed by PC Link, then AOL and CompuServe, if my memory serves me right.

We paid for packets though our telephone bill and it could get pricey.

My first computer games were the ones that I had to write myself, then along came Leisure Suit Larry and the rest is history.

Loved Duke Nukem too.

I forgot about that. I wonder if mine is still in the attic.

Moved up to a Sanyo and finally went all in with an IBM XT.

I was hooked from day one.

A machine takeover is a worry, things are heading towards that rapidly, with what i've seen in various industries such as self driving cars. Next it will be medical robotic technology, you're new assigned dr. will be inhuman.

I really hope i'm not here to see that.

I'm fairly sure they've already got more than one, although unecessary, we know who runs them.

WE will be the internet, people will have the option to have optics which can see and interact in 3-dimensional space. So rather than watching people with faces in devices, they will be spaced out looking swatting the air before their faces.

A very good point, especially regarding the medical industry. Most people remember Watson from Jeopardy, but in fact, that computer is actually primarily used in medicine/surgery.

Social media will evolve again, application, sites, come and go. Younger crowds are moving away from Facebook which their parents use.

IMO overall will largely move more toward VR.

I can definitely see where it's going to end. I remember jeopardy but had no knowledge it was used in the medical industry. Thank you for that bit of info.

That would be fast, but i can't see it happening for the average citizen. I do see two Internets evolving though. At the rate things are going the web as we know it right now, will be harnessed.

I would love to see an Internet fueled by fibre optics. Could be interesting.

The internet will evolve into a complete scam - As many sites, including some so-called money making forums, are already.

you will be completely enslaved by predatory capitalist/socialists who as an elite will own you and make you pay for all you post - assumnig you still have free will and are able to post.

The only people who will have any degree of freedom are people who can exist completely off the web
- Say like anti-technology groups like the Amish.

I hope youre wrong son. In ten years there might not be an internet but if you younger generation fight for your rights like we did back in the day and those before us, you might still have a chance to turn it all around.

Son? - I'm probably older than you - But does age really matter now?

Awareness does matter - and I doublt even 10 percent of the people [of all ages] on the internet are aware of what's happening. And yes it is hard to define - sort of like a conspiracy within a conspiracry - An illusion of 'freedom' of communication which is relentlessly monitored - and these monitors are collecting data for the purpose of mafketing
- But also for a futurre of complete control - 'they' know what they are doing.
