Found this interesting Atlantic piece that examines how the ad supported net has given rise to modern expectations of surveillance and damaged our news and political discussions.

It meshes nicely with Anil Dash's articles the "Web we Lost" And "Rebuilding the Web We Lost"

Sadly my young cousins never saw the old net.

Of course most of you know the "Web" is just a app or service on the net, one of many.
I'll close suggesting this Atlantic article on why old fogey e-mail won't just die.
