The web we may have lost…

I am not surprised that it came to this. The world-wide-web always scared the hell out of those who want to control what people consume and what their career is. The web was the equaliser.

People could download, share and remix. From a pure capitalist point of view this is anarchy. From a creativity point of view - it is heaven.

Just because it is online doesn’t mean you should trust it. But as it is online and you can publish, too, you can make it better.

A web without Net Neutrality wouldn’t allow for that. I’d be fed the message of the publisher that paid the most to the ISP. That’s shit. I might as well watch TV. Maybe that’s what everyone wants me to do.

Look, kids, I’m cool and I will ensure you can spend money and click ads - even in the future
  • Posting Pictures of food and animals
  • Shopping
  • Watching media-produced shows and movies
  • Be a fan of the same
  • Post Memes which are remixes of the same

I’ve always wanted to keep the big equaliser available for all. And I am excited to see what will come next. I look forward to see who will do amazing things with this gift to humanity that is an open publication platform.

And I hope that people still care that the web flows, no matter for whom or what the stream carries.
