No one who has contributed to developing the web from its early days on can possibly be happy with the direction the web has taken.

Thirty years ago on Tuesday, Tim Berners-Lee created the web. To celebrate the event he published a few lines((Source: Mark Sullivan / FastCompany)) on what is is disrupting a development for the better. und erinnert daran, dass in den folgenden 30 Jahren das Web zu seiner ursprünglichen, dezentralisierten Natur zurückgeführt werden kann. Warum auch nicht?

“But given how much the web has changed in the past 30 years, it would be defeatist and unimaginative to assume that the web as we know it can’t be changed for the better in the next 30.”

Serious issues

  • Deliberate, malicious intent, such as state-sponsored hacking and attacks, criminal behavior, and online harassment.
  • System design that creates perverse incentives where users’ value and well-being are sacrificed, such as ad-based revenue models that commercially reward clickbait and the viral spread of misinformation.
  • The unintended negative consequences of benevolent design, such as the outraged and polarized tone and quality of online discourse.
