The world wide web might have been a way to share all kinds of information in a useful way that ecompassed the input of multiple presenters for every topic imaginable, sometimes for the same topic many times over.
Malcolm Gladwell effectively predicts the 2020 web in 2002.
It was imagined by the still-living web founder as something that would be an indexed resource of a million perspectives, all able to interlink and evolve in infinite digital interplay.
And then, commercialism.
Now web page/site development can only be justified by the amount of money it might procure its producers. Web pages that don't or can't take on the architecture of e-commerce equate to content that might be better moved to evolving social media platforms such as Facebook. Places where any universal search mechanism breaks down.
Malcolm Gladwell made the prediction above in 2002 that seems to hold up well in the 2020 web.
