Well, we’re screwed: Internet Society report finds ‘we know (almost) nothing’

https://mashable.com/article/internet-society-report-2019/

“The internet is a wild and messy place. Thankfully, the folks at the nonprofit Internet Societyare here to help make sense of it all with a detailed investigation into some of the thorniest problems facing the online world.

Namely, the group seeks to uncover how possible consolidation in the internet economy — as exemplified by the likes of Facebook and Amazon — is affecting the broader online ecosystem as a whole and to what degree that should concern us. Unfortunately, the organization’s findings aren’t all that encouraging.

The group, which was founded in 1992, determined in a Feb. 26 report that the current status of the corporate giant-dominated internet is so poorly understood that even government intervention might just further muck things up. ”
