"The human web, the one made by regular people, is resurgent," writes Anil Dash. "We are about to see the biggest reshuffling of power on the internet in 25 years, in a way that most of the internet's current users have never seen before." One driver of change: the regulators, who are finally pushing back against the tech giants. Another is the plethora of social networks following the demise of X/Twitter. Dash also points to "the people who had been quietly keeping the spirit of the human, personal, creative internet alive are seeing a resurgence now that the web is up for grabs again." The article is open access on Rolling Stone, but here's the Internet Archive version, just in case. See also this follow-up post on Dash's own website.
