We Lost The Internet

We Lost The Internet

  • First developed for the military, the internet wasn’t always the closed, capitalistic ecosystem that it is now.
  • Before the tech giants staked their claim on billions of users, it was a decentralized place with no custodian.
  • Now, only a handful of companies control most of the internet, using addictive content and smart algorithms.
  • They use the vast amount of user data generated every minute for building tools to predict consumer behaviour and feed their AI engines.

User data is the fodder of AI(artificial intelligence) and is required for the global tech revolution. This personal information is the new oil, and individuals, who are the real and rightful owners of their data, are now starting to realize its value.

Web 1 2 3

  • The early days of Web 1.0 had users connecting directly with friends and family and most of the online stuff was unregulated.
  • Web 2.0 has been mostly about social media and companies using consumer data for their AI engines.

Web 3.0 aims to decentralize the internet by giving users complete control of:

  • Their data.
  • Their communications.
  • Their networks.
  • Their security.
  • Their privacy.

Decentralized Internet

Web 3.0, or the DWeb, is the Decentralized Internet and does not have any hosting company, making it completely democratic.

It is controlled by users themselves, and not by a handful of tech giants with valuations touching a trillion dollars.

Benefits Of Decentralized Internet

  1. No possibility of monopoly or control by big tech.
  2. Full security and privacy, due to its distributed nature.
  3. Complete encryption of user data with no exploitation by tech giants.
  4. Device interoperability for seamless and easy switching.
  5. No central hosting results in no service failure.
  6. Data is distributed in a semantic way across systems and platforms, bridging different data platforms and formats.

Decentralized Internet: Challenges

  • Due to the non-compatibility of internet software and the high levels of technical skills required, work on the DWeb(Web 3.0) is facing slow developer adoption.
  • There is also the problem of having full security along with ease of use, as any security comes with censoring or restrictions.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
