It seems as though all of the Web might collapse into a Singularity. When that happens, the Web will just be a bunch of AIs talking to each other. It makes you wonder, what will happen to newspapers and magazines? Will the advent of AI be the death media Websites?
I say this because what I want is to be able to talk to an AI rather than reading another newspaper or magazine article again. I think that comes from how I love to talk and I learn a lot better via a conversation than reading.
But the regardless of the specifics, the issue of the re-imagining of our collective interaction with the news is looming. If that happens, then practical obscurity may end altogether — even for the Dark Web. We will know everything about everything that is publicly on the web — or on a news website. That could dramatically change how we consume news.
Or not. What do I know. But is an interesting idea.
