The Internet in its current form is miles away from the Internet of 2000. It has its strengths as well as its bad sides. Today's internet has many more uses, is faster and smarter. On the other hand, much of it is controlled by a few technology giants who have built walls around their services. It is thus very difficult for ordinary people to switch from one service to another and it is practically impossible to avoid surveillance and invasion of privacy. Data has become the most valuable commodity and technology giants are very happy to use it.
On the one hand, we have a great service like YouTube. You can upload high quality videos to YouTube, show them to potentially millions of people, and make money. On the other hand, YouTube tends to increasingly censor content on its site. Platforms such as Facebook and Twitter indirectly support the dissemination of false information and clickbait articles, and Amazon is gradually monopolizing the economy thanks to its vast business platform.
