Rather than find that the veracity of the net has improved the veracity of all media has declined.
I think we already feel nostalgia for the good old days of the net. What is coming is the unification of power. TV, cable, phone, media, content, and internet as one. Independents will simply be lost in the volume. Twitter, a chat room that does not erase, has already become a shill for products. Already those who came first, geocities and aol have been erased. Rather than everyone one getting more connected they are now unconnected rather we all have our private worlds.
The worst is the commercial synergy that will overwhelm all.
