The Future of the Internet

    What will be the long term effects of people constantly staring at their screens”
     Bad eyesight and brain tumors once it is discovered WiFi causes cancer.
     But seriously, constant use of the internet will continue to erode traditional media's influence while making tech companies wealthier and power powerful. At some point, anonymity is going to completely disappear because of the influence social media users have demonstrated since the 2016 election. I imagine a universal identification will be required within a few years in order to post anywhere on the internet. Putting your name on what is posted will make a lot of people think twice about expressing their true thoughts.
    I hope it does not come to that. The internet ought to be the wild frontier where people are free to speak their minds as they see fit.
