The Web We Lost – Anil Dash

Great article highlighting some new ideas on how the web has changed with the introduction and scaling of social media networks.

The biggest idea, I think, is the lose of collaboration and openness. It’s as though we are witnessing an industry build it’s ivory tower and silos as they compete for ad revenue and control of our time and attention.

The second biggest idea is the willingness on our part to give away so much control of privacy and content. This also fueled by my first point, networks are making harder for us to share our content where we want to because that force them to play nice we each other.

It ends on high note though and call to remember/learn/teach the history of the web for newer generations of user who weren’t on the web when it was much more open.
