I grew up in the 1990’s and watched the Internet arise out of thin air. It was an exciting time filled with endless technological possibilities. The decentralized control of information outside the reach of any government or corporation offered me a tantalizing future beyond the grey, Soviet world where I was born. Overtime, the Internet became ubiquitous with the conveniences of our everyday existence. Sadly, it also become boring; more controlled, more grey, more dull. The mad startup wars of the last century obliterated online independence. All spoils were carved up by the survivors; the Googles and Apples and Facebooks and Amazons and such. Technology became a source of cash, but not a source of freedom and potential.
