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.
